The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that of the 100 or so types of crops that provide 90% of food worldwide, 71 are pollinated by bees!
Searing heat and a lack of water are a disastrous mix for crops and for world food supplies. Plants need water to survive,and without plants to eat, livestock such as cattle starve too. When the top layer of soil in a farmer’s field dries out it becomes dusty and blows away, taking with it vital nutrients the plants need. The result is less food, which is a big problem because the world’s population is set to increase from 7 billion today to 9 billion by 2050, so we will need more food, not less.
