2010 Food Shortage Alert!!!

ok girls, I hope you take this seriously and do the right things but, Eric at LATOC forum has posted a chilling article about the real situation concerning food production and how we are headed for some shortages (at the least) this year.
here's a link to the article.
2010 Food Crisis For Dummies

here are some excerpts from it.

If you read any economic, financial, or political analysis for 2010 that doesn’t mention the food shortage looming next year, throw it in the trash, as it is worthless. There is overwhelming, undeniable evidence that the world will run out of food next year. When this happens, the resulting triple digit food inflation will lead panicking central banks around the world to dump their foreign reserves to appreciate their currencies and lower the cost of food imports, causing the collapse of the dollar, the treasury market, derivative markets, and the global financial system. The US will experience economic disintegration.


The world is blissful unaware that the greatest economic/financial/political crisis ever is a few months away. While it is understandable that general public has no knowledge of what is headed their way, that same ignorance on the part of professional analysts, economists, and other highly paid financial "experts” is mind boggling, as it takes only the tiniest bit of research to realize something is going critically wrong in agricultural market.


make the necessary arrangements for food now so that you aren't caught unprepared.

I posted about using 2 lt. soda bottles to store beans and rice and things in. Save your bottles and start filling them up now before the doodie hits the fan. I know you both garden, so buy your seeds now as well. Try and get things acclimated to your areas and buy seed that you can harvest more seed from the plant too. Heirloom and non hybrid varieties. Buy hybrids for the abundance but also grow heirlooms for their sustainability.
Sugar is already going up so stock up now, especially if you will need if for making sweet pickles or jellies and jams. Anyway, read that article, I'm about half finished and it's really worth reading. Great analysis of the situation.

love,
mom
