Or, thank goodness for rice, and potatoes.

For many parts of the world, our civilization has been based in large part on eating grass seeds. Grain. Either we eat it, or our animals do.

To mess with grain is to shake the foundations of human civilization.

We do have stand-ins for our starch. Tubers, beans. But grass seeds are huge. A Global rice disaster would mean starvation for billions.  A wheat failure could be almost as bad for the poor.

Guess whats about to happen?

Bread is about to get rather expensive in the next decade.
