We have a shortage of fertilizer, we have a shortage of tractors, and we have a shortage of farmers… .”

Yes, millions of us might be starving to death in 20 years, but on the bright side, bailed out banks are buying private corporate jets... /sarcasm

His analysis seems sound. Remember the oil shortage of 1970s led to oil glut of 80s-90s , which led to shortage up to 2008.
