Plant growth is positively affected by increasing temperatures:
Plant growth is positively affected by Increased level of CO2 in the atmosphere:
Plant growth is positively affected by fertiliser:
It takes a lot of energy to produce fertiliser:
«In 1998, the average energy value for ammonia production in North America from steam methane reforming of natural gas was 36.7 GJ/ton … Converting this value to comparable units, 36.7 GJ/ton is equivalent to 10,194 kWh per ton of ammonia, or 5.1 kWh per pound. The original WCROC wind to ammonia pilot facility design will require 14,600 kWh per ton of ammonia produced. Thus, using wind energy requires roughly 4450 more kWh per ton of ammonia, or 2.2 kWh per pound.«

It takes a lot of energy to produce food. Increasing energy costs will increase food prices.
It seems likely to me that United Nations policies will tend to inflate food prices.
