For the second time in little over a year, it looks as though the world may be heading for a serious food crisis, thanks to our old friend "climate change". In many parts of the world recently the weather has not been too brilliant for farmers. After a fearsomely cold winter, June brought heavy snowfall across large parts of western Canada and the northern states of the American Midwest. In Manitoba last week, it was -4ºC. North Dakota had its first June snow for 60 years.

There was midsummer snow not just in Norway and the Cairngorms, but even in Saudi Arabia. At least in the southern hemisphere it is winter, but snowfalls in New Zealand and Australia have been abnormal. There have been frosts in Brazil, elsewhere in South America they have had prolonged droughts, while in China they have had to cope with abnormal rain and freak hailstorms, which in one province killed 20 people.

None of this has given much cheer to farmers. In Canada and northern America summer planting of corn and soybeans has been way behind schedule, with the prospect of reduced yields and lower quality. Grain stocks are predicted to be down 15 per cent next year. US reserves of soya – used in animal feed and in many processed foods – are expected to fall to a 32-year low.

There are obviously various reasons for this concern as to whether the world can continue to feed itself, but one of them is undoubtedly the downturn in world temperatures, which has brought more cold and snow since 2007 than we have known for decades.

OK. Let's get Joe Biden to be the spokesman for global cooling and pit him against Al Gore in a debate. What a riot! War of the Dim-wits!

It is a good thing that some of the local sugar cane farmers planted their soybeans earlier than normal this year. I have noticed more soybeans planted this year than normal too. I hope the crop comes in good this year.

There was some Snow in Wyoming or Montana last week

...it was at altitude


**** I'm curious what the differences are in both the northern plains and Texas coast this year: I could picture differences in the Jet Stream patterns today from say 5 years ago?
