Global warming causing hot dogs to slip out of buns

For a long time there has been a list of "Things Caused by Global Warming." (link)
The lists keeps growing and, as the December Paris UNFCCC Cop21 approaches, you can be sure of the Shrill adding a few more doozies to supplement the list.

Some crazy additions have been 
  • early marriage: "CLIMATE change has been blamed for increasing social problems such as early marriages, a report has stated."
  • Cataractspeople around the world are in greater danger of losing their vision because of climate change.
  • Old Women become ProstitutesThe effects of climate change have driven women in communities in coastal areas in poor countries like the Philippines into dangerous work, and sometimes even the flesh trade, a United Nations official said.
  • Taller Mountains: The European Alps have been growing - the rate of uplift has accelerated in recent decades because global warming has sped up
  • End Olympic GamesTokyo governor Shintaro Ishihara warned  the 2016 Olympics could be the last Games, with global warming an immediate threat to mankind.
  • Ice Sheet GrowthGlobal Warming May Trigger Ice Sheet Growth
  • Ice Sheet shrinkageScientists have worried that the Antarctic ice sheet was shrinking
  • Sex ChangeCould a sex change, caused by rising temperatures, cause the end of the prehistoric Tuatara?
Much more of this foolishness at Number Watch.

The latest idiocy from the Shrill is Bread will be smaller in future.  Really?  Surely, if the baker uses lust a little more dough the loaf won' t get smaller. 

But wait! What causes bread to rise?   Why it's our old friend, vital-to-life carbon dioxide (CO2).

From Bake Info
The Carbon dioxide produced by these reactions causes the dough to rise

American Thinker has a great piece - Global warming causing hot dogs to slip out of buns
We know that global warming is a big threat.  Oh, it may help us with our mummy problem, and be a boon for great tits, but it causes more problems than it solves – shrinking horses, causing seals to be oversexed, causing poison ivy to become even itchier, making trees less colorful,  making trees more colorful, making reptiles walk uphill, destroying opium in Afghanistan, and even increasing cannibalism to unacceptable levels, with that last prediction courtesy of former CNN founder and exotic diner Ted Turner.
And now it turns out that global warming is causing a new problem: it is shrinking the size of our buns 
The implications for this are manifold.  With smaller bread, buns will be smaller, and hot dogs will slip out of buns.  Salsa dripping from smaller tacos and burritos will create slip and fall hazards, and predictably, areas with undocumented migrants will be hardest hit.  And what are we going to do when sandwiches become more wich than sand?
