The first Fall estimates of how bad world crop harvests are, was issued Sept. 12 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and in less than 24 hours, controllers of key international agencies, acting on behalf of the dead monetarist/globalist system, rushed to say: don't dare do anything about food shortages, nor hyperinflation. 'Wait and see.'
They are doing what's expected of them as genocide operatives. This is just one more aspect of the necessity to get Obama out of office, to upset what is otherwise a doomsday for the human species.
The U.S. corn crop — accounting for a third of the planet's production — is down 13 percent from last year. At the end of the corn marketing year in the U.S., there will be only some 2.5 weeks of corn usage on hand as "carryover," when in the past, two to three months of usage was on hand. Overall, the world corn crop will be down at least 3% from 2011; the world wheat crop, down 5 percent from last year.
Moreover, these estimates are likely too rosy, a notorious practice of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The only reason there are still any kernels left in the bins, is because people and livestock are eating less. This is depopulation in action.
But yesterday, the Director-General of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Jose Graziano da Silva, said that he saw no need to convene an emergency Group of 20 forum on food and food prices for now. He said, "...this is a decision that needs to be considered from week to week. At the moment, the prices are very volatile, and we are following them very closely." He spoke Thursday at a conference in Turkey.
Da Silva said he will meet on Sept. 16 with the agriculture minister of France, the current head of the agriculture committee (called AMIS, Agriculture Market Information System) of the G-20, and they will continue to "monitor" world food and prices. In mid-August, these two, plus officials from Mexico, the current chairman of the G20, and U.S. officials all met, and formally said they would decide whether to act on the food situation, after the release of the Sept. 12 USDA report. Now they decided to punt again.
- California Dairy Sector Faces Wipe-Out -
The notion that agriculture and food can be watched "week to week" is obviously a sick excuse of letting the breakdown and hunger process proceed. Farming is way beyond season-to-season, or even year-to-year; it is generation-to-generation, in terms of skills to build up of land, water, and especially agriculture.
Look at the dynamic of "do nothing" in terms of the California dairy sector right now. A member of the National Farmers Union delegation from California, at the Sept. 12 "Farm Bill Now" rally in Washington, D.C., warned about the destruction of dairy. The NFU and other groups were protesting Congressional dysfunction over agriculture and food.
The U.S. right now is not producing enough milk to meet current demand, even with ersatz milk and cheese products made from reconstituting imported milk proteins and fats, from China, New Zealand, and elsewhere.
In the next 90 days, 20 to 30 percent of the entire California dairy sector — the biggest in the nation — may go out of business, due to the impossible fodder crisis, and the refusal of government to intervene to match farm output prices with farmers' costs.
