China Faces Worst Crop Conditions Ever Due to Climate Change

More extreme weather caused by rising global temperatures — compounded by geopolitical turmoil and the pandemic — is hindering China’s effort to ensure food supplies for its 1.4 billion population. Climate change-induced disasters have caused widespread crop damage and shrunk the amount of arable land, making it harder to boost local production.

Record-breaking rains in the central province of Henan in July alone damaged 2.1 million acres of farmland. The floods delayed planting on more than 18 million acres of land, about one-third of China’s total winter wheat acreage. The amount of first- and second-grade crops, where there are more than 2.7 million seedlings on every acre of land, fell by more than 20% this year compared with normal years.

China – Covid-19

China could face more than 630,000 COVID-19 infections a day if it dropped its zero-tolerance policies by lifting travel controls, according to a study by Peking University mathematicians.

Using data for August from the United States, Britain, Spain, France and Israel, the mathematicians assessed the potential results if China adopted the same pandemic control tactics as those countries. China’s daily new cases would reach at least 637,155 if it adopted the United States’ pandemic strategy, the report said. Daily cases would hit 275,793 if China took the same approach as Britain and 454,198 if it imitated France, it said.
