He also said the world needs to be more sober about climate change by realizing that it, apart from causing extreme weather events, could also affect consumer good prices, public well-being and employment.
That means beer prices on average would double, even adjusting for inflation, according to the study in Monday's journal Nature Plants.

Scientists are warning severe climate events could cause shortages in the global beer supply. It was after a day at a scientific meeting in China, and a few participants had gotten together, including climate scientists, a crop modeler and himself, an economist. In addition to this, lesser supply of beer can preeminently impact the availability and economic viability of the beverage, leading to unreasonable price increases in some nations. Only 17% of the barley [goes into] making beer. "Our study showed that even modest warming will lead to increases in drought and excessive heat events in barley-growing areas".
Decreasing yields would leave less barley for beer production, as its use as food and cattle feed takes precedence. The impact on beer prices would vary accordingly.
Prices will spike the most in Ireland, Italy, Canada and Poland.
"There's a pretty well-understood connection between rising temperatures, reduced water supplies and the impact on crop yields", said Sluyter, who was not involved in the research.
These extreme weather events are expected to occur as often as every two or three years in the second half of the century if we stay on the current climate trajectory, the report said. "So for instance, I've seen numbers like a 7% reduction in corn, 6% reduction in wheat", she said. People's diet security is equally important to food security in many aspects of society.
