One more stamp from the same series above, from Italy. Pasta is already an universal food, but now the drought of Italian rivers will affect their pasta production. Durum wheat (painted in this stamp) for pasta making, is a lot less harvested this year - and worse. https://www.theguardian.com/environ...ught-climate
I am shocked by seeing the drying up Po river on the map - my everyday sticky-rice is coming from North-West of Italy, where Swiss and French borders are near-by, and that is where the Po starts. Our food environment, wherever you are in the world, is directly connected to the Climate Crisis.
