With all the obesity in the USA, a food crisis might be the best thing for people’s health here.

“Vast swathes of the planet are set to go hungry. Those who were previously hungry may starve”

...with our resources we don’t need to play any role in this. We will, but don’t need to.

In the USA, Walmart has already announced a price hike of 5.8% on average for a 31-item basic basket for this Autumn.

Has Walmart ever preannounced price increases, especially a long time in advance? That sets off my BS detector for the who article.

Normally you just go into a store and see price were higher than the last time you went in. Sometimes they try to sneak in a big price increase like when a bag of chips goes from $3 to $4. They'll put up the new $4 sign, but say $1.11 off/now only $2.89.

no one gives a chit about the masses who are destined to starve in any event.

chances are good that the politically connected with legislative control of present grain resources will profit tidily in this current round. our next generation of leaders.

most in the west will pay whatever the cost for their beers, and the darkskinned brethren they profess compassion for will eat dirt and die in grizzly fashion.

“...frightening, with the UNO predicting an increase of 60 per cent by 2030”

A 60% increase over 20 yrs is “frightening”?

Gee, no mention of the central valley in California where huge swaths of farm land are sitting fallow because of the obamanation’s water restriction (to save some fish). Wonder why? /sarc
