Climate change is helping pests and diseases that attack crops to spread around the world, a study suggests.

Researchers from the universities of Exeter and Oxford have found crop pests are moving at an average of two miles (3km) a year.

The team said they were heading towards the north and south poles, and were establishing in areas that were once too cold for them to live in.

That's pretty scary.

just an interesting flip side  on the news  (weather channel) this morning.....  they said the horrible drought  last year in Texas  has   "eradicated"  the bole weevil  in the state  and  now Cotton crops have improved.

  But,, ya Freezing cold is very cleansing in many ways...
