The US Department of Agriculture declared a natural disaster on Thursday as a widespread drought stretched over 1,016 counties in 26 states, covering over half the country. The natural disaster is said to be the largest in US history due to its breadth.

That's horrible. You know there are drought-resistant crops out there. If this trend continues, the farmers should start rethinking their choice of crops.

Maybe it's just my suspicious woo-woo mind but... this crop failure thing could just be a way to cover massive food price manipulation. They sure hyped the hell out of the swine flu scandal, turned out it wasn't even pandemic.

oh and *hic*

Same for Finland. This was yesterday a couple of hours ride south of us. Biggest potato producing area in the country. I think they might want to switch to rice. damned.gif

I wouldn't call a conspiracy-minded person a "woo woo". Well, some I would, but your suspicions may have some merit if you can prove THEY can control the weather.

Oh wow Octo! gaah.gif that is so not good. It's been good here for crops, was a cold wet spring but the hot weather hit just in time for taking off the first cut and the ranchers and farmers have been going flat out. Also my honey bees finally have the weather they need yay.gif

Can't believe you said that! damned.gif I was just done telling JR I need to start a thread questioning this extreme weather. Is it it man made? Whip out the evidence... reading.gif

We need to do that. drinking.gif

Quote:So what is all this phony honey made of? It is difficult to say for sure, as pollen is the key to verifying that honey is real. According to FSN, much of this imposter honey is more likely being secretly imported from China, and may even be contaminated with antibiotic drugs and other foreign materials.

That' so last year here in Houston.

This year... http://www.khou.com/news/local/Areas-of-...79256.html

and

http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/...707575.php

Cypress is just northwest Houston.

Last year the drought was so bad it cracked my garage foundation and stress cracks all around my house sheetrock. Good foundation repair companies are so backlogged there is a approximate 8-10 week wait. If the house survives the drought then is at risk again when it starts raining.

Water main breaks all over the city...

Damn! That's a lot of water. damned.gif

Seems like the same scenario also played out in at least the UK, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Japan. Tornadoes in Poland too.

They don't have to control the weather, they only have to lie about the harvest to send the markets reeling.

You should have seen the sights I saw on my drive down from Wisconsin. Everything was so brown in a lot of areas that it could have been mid-winter.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
