Possible Potato Shortage – climate change effects french fries

Like french fries? Or other assorted potato based dish? You wouldn’t be alone, most people do and we’re going to have to live with less because last season wasn’t great so there might be a shortage and this is partially thanks to climate change.

The weather was unseasonably wet and cold, thanks to the changing climate which gave farmers smaller crops than expected. This is something that happens, bad years are normal for any sort of agriculture for a variety of reasons. Still, climate change is making weather patterns unpredictable meaning that normal methods that farmers might employ for mitigating the damage are not always able to be done in time.

We probably won’t see any real impact to our beloved taters unless this continues for a few more years, which it might because, as I’m sure you’re aware, climate change is very real. Although we may not see another bad year for potatoes, it’s just as likely that we will see more.
