Effect of climate change on the United States

Higher levels of warming often negatively affect growth and yields, it continues, as do increased pests, water stress, diseases and weather extremes. Crop and livestock production will be affected.

I'm sitting at a talk given by the lead author of that report and the graphs and data are alarming.
