    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme is] presents the debate associated with introducing GMOs as a traditional debate between science and progress against dogma. After reading it, I hope that science will win for the sake of all of us."

Agricultural Investment Impact on Global Rice and Wheat Markets under Climate Change

There is growing consensus about the threat of global warming, that our planet will continue to warm up as the concentration of greenhouse gases increases in the future. The agriculture sector is particularly vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change. This book shows how agricultural investments will impact global wheat and rice markets under climate change in the long term. The projection results show that the volatility of international wheat and rice prices will increase in the next two decades, due to climate change impacts. Simulation studies show that constant increases in agricultural investments in major producing countries will help stabilise international wheat and rice prices. In this book, a simulation study examines the role of agricultural investment growth in decreasing food loss, and finds that agricultural investments play a crucial role in alleviating climate change risks in the global wheat and rice markets.
