[quote:soulsurvivor:MV8yMDE3NDY4XzMzOTAzMTkxXzgzQTREQTk=] Look at the big picture and understand that the terraforming of earth is well underway and that includes all lifeforms on earth. To state that you can avoid the food shortages by growing your own food shows your ignorance of the fact that global food production is tightly controlled by the use of bioweapons. Global carbon taxes are the new stock market. [/quote]
More doom from the UN:
• Extreme weather means climate ‘is no longer reliable’
• Rising food prices threaten disaster and unrest
World grain reserves are so dangerously low that severe weather in the United States or other food-exporting countries could trigger a major hunger crisis next year, the United Nations has warned.
Failing harvests in the US, Ukraine and other countries this year have eroded reserves to their lowest level since 1974. The US, which has experienced record heatwaves and droughts in 2012, now holds in reserve a historically low 6.5% of the maize that it expects to consume in the next year, says the UN.
“We’ve not been producing as much as we are consuming. That is why stocks are being run down. Supplies are now very tight across the world and reserves are at a very low level, leaving no room for unexpected events next year,” said Abdolreza Abbassian, a senior economist with the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
With food consumption exceeding the amount grown for six of the past 11 years, countries have run down reserves from an average of 107 days of consumption 10 years ago to under 74 days recently.
