Yemenis abandon farms, seek food security in city


www.alertnet.org

As men and women pick corn and roll up the withered stalks in the fields of their tiny village near Sanaa, Humeid al-Masajidi says goodbye to a way of life his family will abandon forever.

"Starting next year there won't be any farmland here. This is the last time this land will be harvested. We've all sold the land," the 35-year-old farmer said, pointing to the fields around the village of Beit al-Masajidi, nestled beneath mountain peaks and dotted with scraggy sheep.

Wow... the following bullets from the article really sum it up...



* Farming no longer sustainable, people move to city

* Instability may worsen as food insecurity grows


We are seeing things change right before our eyes as a world for probably not the last time. These changes have always occurred and have influenced humanity in many ways.

The question is, will this change be something radical yet local, or will it have a much wider effect on humanity as a whole?

Im almost positive this happens almost always, sad but true.

Mother nature gives and takes away with the same hand.

Atleast they can still grow food if they would like, in the states they fine us for having a lemonade stand without a permit on your own property

The Yemeni's are more likely to lose food security if this keeps happening.
By abandoning farms and moving to the city is going to decrease output.
Which means they will be dependent on imports to feed their population.
If food imports are restricted for any reason then starvation will insue.

The Yemeni's really do need to start looking at boosting farming or the above will happen.

This youtube video covers almost every possibility you can conceive of.

Either way, as my handle entails, I think whatever's going down, we better check in with the dolphins about it.
