Yuca, or cassava, is a major staple food in the developing world, providing a basic diet for over half a billion people. It is one of the most drought-tolerant crops, capable of growing on marginal soils. Here in the US, the name “tapioca” most often refers to the starch made from the yuca root.
The beauty of the climate change religion. Anything can be explained away with enough faith. All you have to do is believe man made global warming causes casual tornadoes and for you, that reality will be true. AND the government will put a gold star on your social credit report.
‘This is crazy’: AOC says ‘casual tornadoes’ are a new threat to the country

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said tornadoes are the latest climate change threat after a tornado warning was issued for Washington, D.C.
“There's people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” the New York Democrat said Thursday in an Instagram video after the city was placed under a tornado warning. “This is crazy.”
After her brief video, Ocasio-Cortez discussed how tornadoes were part of the threat of climate change.
“The climate crisis is real y’all,” she said. “Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?”
“Other regions deal with wildfires, tornadoes, droughts, etc. But ALL of these threats will be increasing in intensity as climate crisis grows and we fail to act appropriately,” she said.
This month, Ocasio-Cortez held a rally with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., where she said there should be “no middle ground” on climate change legislation.
"I will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to come back today and say we need a 'middle-of-the-road' approach to save our lives,” she said.
In February, Ocasio-Cortez released the Green New Deal resolution, which called for the federal government to take drastic measures to combat climate change. The resolution was slammed as impractical by Republicans and moderate Democrats.
