 Out of concern to reduce these emissions, some researchers recommend flooding rice paddies only intermittently. Unfortunately,​ new research indicates that this only worsens the matter, and that the impact of rice cultivation is twice as bad for global warming as previously believed.((Josh Gabbatiss, https://​www.independent.co.uk/​environment/​rice-farming-climate-change-global-warming-india-nitrous-oxide-methane-a8531401.html|“Rice farming up to twice as bad for climate change as previously thought, study reveals”]],​ //The Independent//,​ Sept. 10, 2018.)) Perhaps Swedes will change from eating rice to potatoes, peas, and carrots, but the culture of India uses rice as a staple, so the prospects for alternative food choices in Asia seem remote. ​ Out of concern to reduce these emissions, some researchers recommend flooding rice paddies only intermittently.

-Millet -- which is nearly as high in protein as wheat -- may be the most climate-friendly grain. It is a C4 plant, which means that it uses a different enzyme for carbon fixation than C3 plants (that is, most other grains), thereby improving water efficiency.((Wikipedia,​ [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Millet|“Millet”]],​ viewed 28 May 2019.)) Other edible grasses related to millet are sorghum and teff.+Millet -- which is nearly as high in protein as wheat -- may be the most climate-friendly grain, although its cultivation has declined worldwide over the past 50 years.
