So we have South Africa and South America below freezing.

The Midwest in the US is too cold to plant in time and the bread basket of Europe a war zone with no port access to ship even if they got planted.

India has stopped exports.

We are now in a situation where regardless of price there simply isn’t enough food to feed half the planet.

This has happened before, about every 400 years during GSM. THIS TIME AROUND THE WORLD HAS 8 BILLION PEOPLE, BEFORE ONLY A BILLION HIT FAMINE.

This isn’t something that might happen, it already has happened. How this plays out before next spring when 3 billion people wake up to starvation will be epic.

If you think our glorious leaders have your back you’re nuts.

I can hear it now, Pete Buttigieg hitting the talk shows saying, “the government doesn’t make food”

And Biden saying, “well I said to expect food shortages”

I wonder when the hardcore store runs will begin?

My guess is food runs already started.

Holy shit! It is freezing in the southern hemisphere in late fall? Shocking! Next, you'll tell me it is mostly at high elevations.

Cash grain prices are reality, without the bullshit of opinion, and the cash prices are saying very clearly, “you are fucked”.

POCKETS OF BOTH NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA FREEZE The spring planting window has all-but closed across North America, yet a high percentage of the nation’s crops failed to make it into the ground, thanks to persistent cold/wet weather. Even those that were sown are expected to suffer drastically lower yields due to a global shortage of key agriculture inputs such as fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides.

/During periods of a normal jet stream flow this doesn’t happen, which is most of the time. However during a GSM this does happen and causes empires to go tits up.

Chicken wings for $34? Pent-up inflation driving food costs higher


Take the case of Jeff Good, who co-founded three restaurants in Jackson, Mississippi. Around 18 months ago, a 40-pound box of chicken wings cost him about $85. Now, it can go as high as roughly $150. Expenses for cooking oil and flour have nearly doubled in the past five months, he said. But it’s not just ingredient prices going up. He’s paying more for labor and services, too. Even the company that maintains his air conditioners has tacked on a $40 fuel charge per visit. To cope, he’s raised menu prices.

/no shit. Prices have doubled in the last few months. This BS saying food is up 10% is a fantasy.

On any Sim game, when food doubles you get killed, full stop.

In real life the same is true.
