Sunflower with global climate change 

Sunflowers cover a field near the Tuscan city of Siena July 1, 2005. Global climate change will bring hotter, drier summers to the Mediterranean and hit two of the region's biggest earners, agriculture and tourism, according to a study released by environmental group World Wildlife Fund on Friday. The study forecast what would happen if the world's average temperature increased by two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels in the period 2031-2060 -- a situation many scientists believe probable due to the greenhouse effect.
