UN report: Global Warming is causing storms, famine and war — and it’s only going to get worse

Man-made climate change has already contributed to rising levels and increasingly acidic oceans; if left unchecked, it has the potential to devastate the food supply and lead to further food insecurity and conflict. Wheat and maize production have already been affected by rising temperatures and heat waves.

FDA proposes food label changes
CNN: The Food and Drug Administration is proposing the first changes to food nutrition labels in more than 20 years. 

If approved, the new labels would place a bigger emphasis on total calories, added sugars and certain nutrients, such as Vitamin D and potassium.
The FDA is also proposing changes to serving size requirements in an effort to more accurately reflect what people usually eat or drink. For example, if you buy a 20-ounce soda, you’re probably not going to stop drinking at the 8-ounce mark. The new rules would require that entire soda bottle to be one serving size — making calorie counting simpler.
