NOTE from ANDREW STROM:  Last year we began to warn about
coming Food shortages. We would never do so lightly. And usually
I would avoid such talk, because I am very aware of all the false
prophecies over the years telling people to store "freeze-dried" food,
etc. But I am deadly serious about this. It is one of my greatest
concerns - especially for the poor. But likely it will affect us all.

As you can see from the below articles, there is a terrible danger
of a "Perfect Storm" developing in food supplies in coming months -
with huge worldwide droughts (-already here) combined with credit
shortages for farmers, and an international shipping crisis - all
coming together. I have added a couple of links at the end of the
first (brief) article - which are very important to check out. Please
click on those links, my friends. -Truly a crucial subject. Pray
and prepare!

If you are wondering why your grocery bill keeps creeping, the
answer may have to do more with the weather than anything else.
You see, drought conditions are now plaguing the globe.

China is experiencing its worst drought in 50 years and is stockpiling
food, because the government knows it has to feed 20 percent of
the world’s populations with only 10 percent of the world’s arable land.

In Australia things haven't been this bad in 117 years, as rainfall
has been below normal since 2002.

In Africa, water scarcity has depleted soil moisture to the point
that the continent has lost the nutrients needed to grow plants in
half of its agricultural soil.

In South America, Argentina has not had significant rainfall since
November.  Brazil’s corn harvest is down 15.5 percent and Uruguay
has declared an agricultural emergency.  In short, it’s getting ugly.

Marla:  What about here in the US?

Greg:  It’s a mixed bag.  Drought is spreading through California,
Washington, Montana, and Minnesota.  Fifteen percent of Texas
is in extreme drought, and the Carolinas and Georgia need rain
desperately.  The midwest is doing OK though.   And while no one
thinks that we’re on the verge of mass starvation, depending on
how severe this drought is, we could see crop yields world wide
fall 20 percent this year.

Marla:  So, we will see prices rise.

Greg:  Probably, and here is another reason why.  Governments
know that when people get hungry, they often times get violent.
You might remember the food riots in Mexico last year.  So it’s
not just China that is stockpiling food... of course hoarding takes
more food off the open market, which pushes prices up.

Marla:  And didn’t I read that the credit crunch is hurting farmers as well?

Greg:  Great point.  Last year, a lack of credit impinged on farmers’
ability to obtain seeds, equipment, and fertilizer.  So you’re already
hearing people say if another stimulus package is considered later
this year, it should, at a minimum, target food production....




God bless you all.
