Coffee and Disasters and Food…

I was sipping that morning cup of coffee and realized that humans have just put a real hurt on things in this last few years or so (OK, so maybe the last thousand years or so!). What, between the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Those two escapades alone have evenhandedly affected the world in a downward direction…

The repercussions are unknown still from the Gulf oil spill (and that does not look good) and we are just starting to see the beginnings of the effects of Fukushima. These are literally the largest environmental disasters ever on earth and it is starting to show. One more disaster may break the camels back…

I am not even caring about the financial effect. That is all a game because the financial world is a farce anyway and we should all know that by now… (Though the financial will affect what I see as most important.)

I am talking about the food crises that seems to be looming ahead on the horizon. These two events alone have put a real hurt on fishing and food production in the world…

I know that the whole world has been polluting and destroying the planet forever (Including Russia big time!) and we seem to not be capable of getting that part of us under control. We have gotten good at covering things up, but the issue is still there and it looks like we are reaching a saturation point…

So as it (food issues) sneaks up on you while you sip your cup of (more expensive by the day) coffee. Just think about the hundreds of food items all over the world that seem to be in a bind right now and it all seems to have started with grain shortages several years ago…

I really think that this is a serious problem that has been building a long long time but it came to a forefront when countries like Russia and Ukraine had a drought that stymied grain production. But now with fishing capabilities being put under attack by man made disasters. The problem has become compounded. Would you eat fish from the (Corex) Gulf of Mexico? Would you eat fish from Japanese radioactive waters? Fine – but do so at you own health and risk… (I would not!)

Coffee gets too expensive! I will drink chicory without hesitation… 🙂

Windows to Russia!

PS: I heard a good statement: (The world wastes a billion tons of food every year!) My, we are amazing creatures aren’t we…
