There could be changes in the amount of cereals that various countries can grow with small increases in North America, China, Argentina and much of Europe and decreases in Africa, the Middle East and particularly India. There will be more places where malaria will flourish. About 290 million more people will be at risk by the 2080s, particularly in China and central Asia. There will also be other explosions in the parasite population. There will also be new mutant hybrid bugs and insects. The amount of water available from rivers may change due to changing rainfall patterns. There could be less available in Australia, India, southern Africa, South America, Europe and the Middle East, and more available in North America, Asia and central eastern Africa.
