I've been enjoying some particularly lovely, rainless December days recently.
But, as surely as every cloud has a silver lining, I'm afraid every unseasonable sunny day has its ring around the collar, its withering Dorian Gray portrait, its really scary-looking guy holding a corncob.
A new "blog" at the New York Times (I don't believe it's ever really a true blog if your boss makes you write it) has a brief today on the effects of creeping climate change: The U.S. wheat crop is doomed.
In another 40 years or so, the "belly" of America's wheat crop will have shifted to Canada due to global warming.
That's a big loss.
It's likely that the soybean and corn crops will be similarly affected, but let me be a little unpatriotic and say "buh-bye" to them. And take that scary-looking mook, too, eh?
