Default Food Shortage 2010 USA

Anyone hearing this? Already government coverups to hide the seriousness of low food supply. Supermarket looks full to me! Fact or fiction?

Fiction. I have been in the food production system my entire life. I am not saying it can't and won't happen but I am saying that for 2010 it is fiction. However, I will say prices are going to be higher, as they already are. Where did you hear this nonsense and did you see any facts to substantiate the conspiracy theory?

9) Major Food Shortages.

For the past several decades, most Americans went to college to get a non-productive job on Wall Street and nobody went to school to become a farmer. There is currently a major lack of farmers in the U.S. and to make matters worse, the Real Estate bubble destroyed immeasurable amounts of farmland to build houses we didn't need and couldn't afford.
Inventories of agricultural products are the lowest they have been in decades yet the prices of many agricultural commodities are down 70% to 80% from their all time highs adjusted for real inflation. Catastrophic food shortages are possible in 2010, not just in the U.S. but all around the world

More BS

Africa-Gate? U.N. Fears of Food Shortages Questioned

The U.N.'s controversial climate report is coming under fire -- again -- this time by one of its own scientists, who admits he can't find any evidence to support a warning about a climate-caused North African food shortage.
The statement comes from a key 2007 report to the U.N., and asserts that by 2020 yields from rain-fed agriculture could be reduced by up to 50% in some African countries thanks to climate change.
But this weekend, a key author of the team behind that report told The Sunday Times that he could find no evidence to support his own group's claim. The revelation follows the retraction by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of a claim that the Himalayan glaciers might all melt by 2035, dubbed 'Glaciergate' by commentators.

Shortage for sure at current prices. Too many dollars chasing too few tomatos. Agree with others, nobody wants to dig the hole.
