Swedish Benefits from Climate Change

According to a new report from the European Commission, if any countries could be said to be winners from climate change, Sweden is one of them.

The report predicts that crop yields in northern Europe will rise by up to 70 percent by the year 2071. That would help Sweden’s farming industry, at the same time that droughts, fires and other factors would hurt agricultural production in Mediterranean countries.

More people in Europe are expected to die from heat, but that would be largely offset in northern Europe by lives being saved from the cold.

But Sweden would be adversely affected by rising sea levels, while more acidic oceans would hurt fish stocks.
