The globule warming Is becoming a Big problem.
the weather around the world is changing.
and it is in a very bad way.

this from BBC news.

Britain's wheat harvest this year could be almost 30% smaller than it was last year due to extreme weather, the National Farmers' Union has warned.

BBC site

NFU combinable crops chairman Andrew Watts said: "A myriad of factors have hit arable farms this year, from the extreme weather through to news that there will be restrictions on neonicotinoids (neuro-active insecticides) to come in the future.

"restrictions on neonicotinoids (neuro-active insecticides)" see site above.
So the Know its very bad but will not just come out and say it!

However, he said lobbying had led to potential restrictions on the use of certain pesticides amid concerns about their impact on bees and fungicides.

what they are saying is We have been wright all along.
I hope they wake up to GM to.

If the experts are to be believed and extreme weather is to become more frequent over the coming years,

They Pay farming subsidies to farmers to NOT farm land!!!
well now they need to make them work.
it will make new jobs to.
but they like to play a game of back and forth trading.
and That is what is weakening the UK & Euro.

stop buying what you can make your self.
each countries should be self sufficient.
or as near as possible.

When I was a kid (50 + years ago) we had good years and we had bad years. Got nothing to do with warming, it's all quite normal!
Farmers love it when they have a bad season, it allows them to put the prices up, and they rarely put them back down again!

That is Definitely Not a Global Warming Issue. Though it is a sad issue none the less.

But, .. . I a confused. . ..

If the government pays subsidies to Not farms. Then what is the problem. It seems they would be happier since they have to pay less this time around.

I am curious though. ... Do those subsidies come form TAX dollars .. ? If they do are you BRitching about that ?

Just curious. . . ..

Are you in the UK too ?

And. . . have the prices fluctuated through the years OR did they take a Big Jump and pretty much stay that way?

Let it fail,. wheats are not a needed nutrient for the body,.
just employment for farmers.

Drought sucks,. but there are ways around it,. the worst that will happen
is the fatties from breads will loose weight. not starve, cows do not need wheat
to live,. just grass,. and many veggies can be grow indoors. Adjust
