ABSTRACT
The article presents climate forecast for the U.S. corn belt. The region is advised to move to the Canadian border to escape heat waves brought on by rising global temperatures. Bigger swings in corn prices or price volatility are expected by the article, causing spikes in food prices, farmers' incomes and the price livestock farmers and ethanol produces pay for corn. Researchers predict increase in corn price volatility between 2020 and 2040.
