Not to be an alarmist, but aren’t insect swarms another sign of the Apocalypse?Not to be an alarmist, but aren’t insect swarms another sign of the Apocalypse? As if we didn’t have enough reason to hate global warming right now, new research coming from Purdue University shows that our mild winters and longer growing seasons is making our climate far more livable for crop pests, which means that the corn fields in the midwest could be in serious trouble. When the researchers took the study a step further, they found that the expected climate will mean that these insects will be popping up in places that they’ve never even been before, making the western US a target as well. Let’s hope they can find a solution to this problem before it begins.
