heatwaves damage crops

"New research, which used corn growing in France as an example, predicts losses of up to 12% for maize yields in the next 20 years. A second, longer-term study published on Sunday indicates that, without action against climate change, wheat and soybean harvests will fall by up to 30% by 2050 as the world warms." http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/jan/13/global-food-crisis-heatwaves-crops
