AGW & Agriculture:
- Connection between US & world food prices can be broken via limitations on US exports.
- US food exports also provide a buffer; in the event of food shortages caused by AGW-induced declines in US crop yields, we can simply cut off exports, and (hopefully) retain enough food to keep ourselves from starving.
- Controlled Environment Agriculture, with both hydroponic-induced yield increases, as well as enablement of temperature controls (important in a warming world) may be helpful in keeping US crop yields up despite AGW.
