Food prices to double by 2030


www.news.com.au...]

The prices of some staple foods will more than double by 2030 unless world leaders take action to reform the global food system, Oxfam has warned.

The British-based aid group called today for an overhaul of the world's food system, warning that in a couple of decades, millions more people would be gripped by hunger due to population growth and climate-hit harvests.

It becomes clearer everyday that there is an emerging issue relating to population control and government regulation.

I think 2030 is a very relaxed estimate and I believe this piece of information is timed right when there has been a series of hardships throuh out the world. Just another suppresssion strategy.

There is already nearly a blillion people not eating well. This does not get the attention of the media and people continue to waste do much food that it is disgraceful.

Now today more fear mongering by the media

Star for you. I love reading your replies Boncho. I am not arse kissing, I am just saying. Most of your posts make me laugh.

The first thing I thought was, it is 2011 now, 2030 is hmmmm

30 -11=19

We have 19 whole years to see if this happens.
We need more time.



ETA: Sorry for the trollish comment. You can tell me what you think here if you want.

Starvation is the normal condition for people born on planet earth. Most will be born and will die never knowing a decent meal or clean water. 99% of Earth's history has been the story of enslavement and starvation.

If you eat food every day and have access to hot and cold water, you should step back and be amazed. You enjoy a lifestyle unknown and inconceivable to the vast majority of those who have lived on this planet.

Tell people in 3rd world countries to stop breeding like flies, that would help.

Not much. There is still some old meatloaf in the fridge from several months ago. There might even be a slight stinch of rotten hamburger meat in there somewhere.

ETA: Seriouslty though. I will star and flag you to get some attention. I will leave you to your business. I was just poking fun before I head off to bed. Please do not put me on your foe list.

Whew. It's a good thing we are all going to die in 2012, otherwise we would have to accept this.
[/EndSarcasm]

 

Honestly, I don't even know what this means. If the price itself doubles, but if the value of the dollar is half, of what it is now, then that would actually mean the price quadrupled. Or is the devaluation of the almighty dollar, a factor that is used in the equation that determines this?

If you dislike someone you can click on something, I think under the avatar and add them to a list of people you do not see eye to eye with. There have been a few....lol...One was a serious troll named Bernard Schnitzel.

lol. You would be guessing wrong then.

I had already removed you from it, before you added me to yours.

On the member profile page, where it shows who is on the 'My Friends List' and the 'My Rivals List,' there is a little red minus sign, inside a circle.
Kinda like this ~> ( - )

If I am understanding correctly, then the answer is no.

The 'Alert' is for sending a message or complaint to an area where all the Mods can see it. The 'Alert' that is in the dropdown menu, in the mini-profile, is the same as the 'Alert' that is at top and bottom of each page underneath 'Flag It'. The only difference is, the one that is in the mini-profile will automatically insert the link that is for that specific post. Basically just the quickest and most effective method of getting a message to a Mod.

Doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing, like reporting someone for whatever. For example, I have used it before, just asking for some assistance, but nothing that was actually important. I even told them that lol.

"This is not important, but if any Mod who is reading this, can spare a couple minutes, I would appreciate it......." Or something like that.

Nothing new

www.dailymail.co.uk...

There are many reasons for food prices soaring.

In the UK virtually now food is the monopoly of a few big supermarkets. They want bigger profits and better dividends then you can be sure there will be a food shortage.

You can be sure we will be told that we need to use GM crops to keep up with supply.

The most certain thing is we will swallow it all be it in smaller mouthfulls.

So in twenty years time food prices will be double. WOW! what a shocker
