Future of the Environment

A tree casts a shadow over a wheat crop at a farm in Condobolin, 285 miles (489 km) west of Sydney July 5, 2011. Australia's grain farmers, forecast to produce a close to record wheat crop in 2011/12, are becoming less optimistic about a bumper harvest as soils around the country start to dry out because of low rainfall.
