Widespread water shortages caused by rising global temperatures could lead to food shortages and mass migration, an expert has warned.
The head of the World Meteorological Society, Michel Jarraud has warned that of all the threats posed by a warming climate, shrinking water supplies are the most serious.
It is predicted that by 2025, some 2.8 billion people will live in 'water scarce' areas - a huge rise from the 1.6 billion who do now.

so global warming is bringing famine? or is this an issue regardless of 'global warming'?

Sounds like they're getting the financial rescue plans aligned.

A crisis always attracts the money fumblers.

The future is scary but we don't have to give up without a fight. While I accept the environment is changing because of man's ill affects with waste and what not, I think we can do our best to save our fragile world. We just have to be rational.

Makes you wonder doesn't it. When I spotted this and saw a similar report on Aljasera TV, they also referenced the situation in Malawi and the correlation to El Nino. El Nino isn't a permanent condition; next year could be La Nina so......maybe its a temporary food shortage?

Of course, anytime there's a "crisis" it fits the AGC/AGW theme and serves the narrative that lends support to mass migration to western civilization. So its really difficult to figure out what's real and whats "political" science.

Of course.....this isn't "news"; there's nothing new about water shortages and starvation in Africa.....its what they do in Africa, so I'm not sure that maybe this story isn't being floated due to the phenomenon of "its a slow news day", kinda like "Dog Bites Postman".

According to the Canadian Press, El Nino-fueled floods have created supply shortages and contributed to price increases on produce from California and Mexico.


A lot of places rely on imports from areas that are getting too much rain, and not enough rain. That, along with currency problems (like a Cdn dollar worth half a USA dollar), food is either not there, or too expensive.

Canada will be fine, not all of us have only a 2 month growing season, and we have massive amounts of grain, but the countries that cannot afford to import, and cannot grow due to poor soils/no water....

Cauliflower is at $7 each, grapes are $5 per lb.
Some produce isn't worth buying.

That could explain why the UN also predicted that insects would become a worldwide source of food.

It makes sense-there is an abundance of insects and from personal experience they don't taste that bad-imagine eating a soft boiled egg without peeling off the shell. The good thing about bugs is they are abundant and breed rapidly, the bad news is that you'd need to eat a lot and that could diminish the population.

We need multiple game plans if we want to be able to prepare for tomorrow. A lot of people should be encouraged to grow their own food, raise livestock, hunt, and so forth.

I think we should not abandon using markets for supplies and food, but be more frugal when it comes to markets; which have a strong pull on the world's economies.

a reply to: Thecakeisalie This brings me to recall my most astounding invention to date. Wait for it. Presenting- Deuce in a box. The amazing grow your own food plus storage container in one! In this convenient and easy to carry 8"x3"x4" dual compartment hinged box you can have your deuce, and eat it to. Too good to be true you say? Not at all. Simply open the bottom of the box's hinged lower lid. Deposit your deuce, a log works best, a double coiler is adequate but needs some strategic rearranging. Close the perforated lid and insert your pair of flies. In no time you will have a whole host of little fly critters, once they are big enough to crawl out of the deuce box and into the serving side of this miracle food from next to nothing device. It's as easy as taking a dump. Disclaimer- this world saving device has not yet been sanctioned by the U.N.

Factory recall notice. It has come to our attention that deuce in a box can only be used seven times. The caloric output of deuce in a box decreases with each use. Subsequently the "reload of deuce in a box" is smaller creating an exponentially diminishing return. Deuce in a box should only be used in survival and migrant situations and is not meant to replace real food. Cause let's face it, you can only grow so many flies on so much # before you get sick from it.

Setting the scene for training people up to accept that in addition to economic migration, religious migration and citizenship demanders, there will also be food shortage asylum seekers. These are migrants who don't fit into any of the other categories.

Venezuelan government encourages home gardening
latino.foxnews.com...

***The socialist government is offering workshops and classes to enlighten those who know nothing about farming. In an interview with Fox News Latino, Maria Jimenez, a field technician with the government-run Siare Foundation, explained that all that is required is “any available place at your house with enough light.”

“In a balcony you can cultivate in self-made wooden tables or in bottles,” she said. “You can grow tomatoes, chives, cayenne, pepper and much more.”***

home gardens are a great idea everywhere. I'm pretty sure the Brit government encouraged but can't find reference.

I love getting local produce. cheap, fresh, saves a trip to the store. (not this time of year, sadly)

I'm told there's enough food in the world, the problem is distribution, esp Africa / third world, and some large cities.

Well, in that scenario it will happen the same as at it always happened before; third world countries will starve while advanced civilization continues to get nourished.
