Wheat, a crop typically grown in cool climates, could be hit hard, say the authors -- Photo: KEITH EWING / CC BY 2.0 Scientists estimate the pests will be eating 10-25% more wheat, rice and maize across the globe for each one degree rise in climate temperature. Warming drives insect energy use and prompts them to eat more. Their populations can also increase.

Hanoi’s egg coffee has received numerous compliment for international media. Per a recent piece in The Guardian about the coffee, “It doesn’t taste of egg – more like vanilla – and while I can taste the coffee at the bottom of the cup, the egg part is surprisingly light-tasting and not at all sickly, though certainly sweet.

The strong coffee taste at the bottom of the cup seeps through the egg -- the yellow layer on top -- and is quite thick and sweet, though not sickly.
