It's been an interesting year for the Minecraft server community, as Minecraft has had a rocky year.It has lost a large number of servers in the last couple of weeks, but the most recent instance was a crash of Minecraft 1.8.7 on the US server.The fivem server is a new way to run Minecraft that lets players run their own servers on a network of computers.It's not the most popular server, but it ha...
A new book by the Australian Institute of Food and Agriculture (AIFA) is warning of the impact of growing food on our planet.
Rice serving size is the measurement of the amount of rice in a bowl of rice, but not necessarily the amount consumed.
In a paper published in the journal Science Advances, the AIFA’s Dr Richard Healy and Dr Pauline Anderton of the University of New South Wales and Australian National University say growing rice will affect global food prices.
The world is now facing a climate crisis that is unprecedented in our history.
But rice isn’t the only food that we are eating, they say.
Food prices are rising due to the increase in rice production in China, the US, India and elsewhere.
And the AISA says growing rice has an impact on the cost of other foods, too.
“While the costs of other food are expected to rise, rice prices will continue to rise.
A high rice consumption is associated with a large increase in the price of meat, eggs and dairy products,” the paper said.
It says the growing cost of rice is linked to its ability to absorb carbon dioxide emissions, and its ability in reducing methane emissions from the ground.
While rice consumption may be high in many parts of the world, the paper points out that growing rice is associated in the developing world with higher emissions.
This is because rice is the only crop grown in the rice belt of India and China.
If this trend continues, “food prices will rise for consumers of the largest cereal grains in the world,” the report says.
However, the authors say this is unlikely to change, because of growing rice production.
According to the AUSA, the cost per kilogram of rice has been rising in China and India over the past decade.
Since 2009, the price per kilo has increased by about 4.5 per cent per annum.
Although the report does not suggest a specific price rise, it is expected that “by 2030, the average price of rice will rise by 50 per cent,” the authors said.
A major concern about rice is that it has been genetically modified.
Scientists are currently developing new rice varieties to help the rice farmers of China, India, Brazil and the Philippines.
As the researchers point out, the process to create new rice can be expensive.
More recently, scientists have discovered that the gene for rice’s ability to produce methane, the greenhouse gas, has been modified.
It is believed this will allow farmers to produce more rice.
“These new rice variants, if successful, will result in greater rice yields and greater carbon sequestration in the soils and water,” the AAFA’s Healy said.
“By 2030, this will result on a larger reduction in methane emissions and the greenhouse effect.”
He said it was important that we do not get complacent.
“It is important to make sure we are making progress to keep rice production sustainable,” he said.
