As climate becomes less certain, so does China's ability to feed itself

DUJIADUN, China -- Liu Changxiong has been farming in this southwestern Chinese village for more than a decade, but his years of experience aren't of much use these days. Last year, his corn seedlings withered at a time Liu expected would be rich in rain. It took twice as many days for his green onions to grow than Liu's estimates. But the 43-year-old farmer isn't the one to be blamed. Instead, experts say, his farming routine is being messed up by climate change

2. ADVOCACY

Heartland Institute attacks critics with a book, finds its funding cut off from GM

A new book published by the Heartland Institute compares societal belief in climate change to a prophecy that instructed a tribe to massacre its livestock, resulting in the death of 35,000 people and slavery for the survivors. A similar "economic suicide" is looming for the United States if Americans continue to pursue policies restricting the use of fossil fuels in order to avoid a false climate "apocalypse," warns the 113-page book, titled "Roosters of the Apocalypse," which was mailed to about 2,000 journalists last week.
