China to be Hit by Deadly Heat: China's most densely populated--and most agriculturally prosperous--region could see regular "unsurvivable" heat waves by the end of the century, according to new research. A study published Monday in the journal Nature Communications finds that heatwaves in the fertile and densely populated North China Plain region, which includes capital Beijing, could kill people in hours by 2070 if emissions continue at current rates. Many of the region's 400 million inhabitants are agricultural workers, with little alternative to working outside. "This spot is just going to be the hottest spot for deadly heat waves in the future, especially under climate change," MIT's Elfatih Eltahir, who led the study, said in a statement.

Hoosier Agriculture in Trouble: Climate change will have a big impact on Indiana's $31 billion agriculture industry, according to new research. The fifth installment of the Purdue Climate Change Research Center's research, released Tuesday, ties each 1 degree F increase in average overnight temperature to a two percent drop in corn yields, leading to a decrease in yields of up to 20 percent over the next 30 years. Heat will also impact agricultural workers and animals, while increased diseases may mean more pesticide use. Indiana is one of the top five most productive US states for crops, and nearly 80 percent of its farmland is dedicated to the production of corn and soybeans--which will also take a hit by midcentury.
