You are so right we are in an event that will be of epic porportions. I've kept my eye not only on this country with the flooding out of fields and draught conditions. Fire burning grazing lands of animals also. But many other countries are having the same problems.
I read a few weeks back where food in one part of China went up 40% because the crops were flooded out. A friend of mine in England wrote me on their news it said the cattle in Japan were dying from radiation yet the government tells them it is safe to eat it. Africa is having the worst draught in many years.
At work I mention to those about the prices going up in the grocery store for anything with wheat in it. Hardly no one notices. It took me a while to figure out why. I do not get food stamps so I pay attention to the prices. I noticed when a box of mac and cheese went from 75 cents to $1.22. I told my son then these people do not see because the money is not coming out of their pocket. They will not see until those food stamps don't last them but a half of a month.
We have been told in multiple prophecies this time would come but many shake their heads thinking we are foolish for what we believe. We will see who is foolish when those that haven't stocked up can't afford to buy a loaf of bread and are hungry.
The Holy Grail of water managers is to find a drought-proof water source. Weather modification (“weather mod”), or cloud seeding, is a particularly appealing ideal. When American chemists discovered that dry ice dropped into clouds produced snow, and that clouds seeded with silver iodide produced rain, they rhapsodized about ending drought. Under perfect conditions, weather mod can increase precipitation by 10 to 15 percent. Ski areas, including Vail, Colo., hire companies to seed snow-producing clouds. And China claims that it produced 36 billion metric tons of rain a year between 1999 and 2006.
But critics, including the National Research Council, question weather mod and its efficacy. Bottom line: though evidence suggests weather mod works to a limited extent, it is unlikely to produce a major supply of water soon.

The ocean is a more promising water source. For centuries people have dreamed of converting saltwater into a limitless supply of fresh water. In 1961 President John F. Kennedy said that “if we could ever competitively, at a cheap rate, get fresh water from saltwater” it would “dwarf any other scientific accomplishments.” By 2008 over 13,000 desalination plants around the world produced billions of gallons of water a day. But “desal,” which is costly and environmentally controversial, has been slow to catch on the United States.
