Farmers could join endangered species list, speaker warns
- Farmers could join endangered species list, speaker warns
Dece. 7, 2010 Steve Sharratt
Extreme weather patterns is wreaking havoc on many parts of the world could put the global farmer on the endangered species list, says an international agricultural expert.
Allan Parker offered the synopsis during the annual meeting of the P.E.I. Potato Board in Charlottetown Friday as he described the dismal situation of the Russian potato crop and the damage that savage weather can cause on an agricultural commodity.
“We see polar bears in some parts of the world on the endangered species list, but I’m afraid we’re going to see farmers make that list as well since they are on the front line of global warming,” said the president of Parker Potato Ltd., who is also a director of the DokaGene Group in Russia.
Parker said Russia — with the third-highest potato production in the world — has suffered a near-collapse of the industry after losing 60 per cent of its massive harvest. A nine-week drought and temperatures upwards of 35 degrees Celsius this past summer let the crop wither away.
He also said Ukraine — considered the breadbasket of Europe — suffered too much rain and extensive late blight in its potato crop.
“It’s making farming more like a lottery,’’ he said, noting the fastest-growing risk claims in the insurance industry are not fires anymore, but flooding and extreme weather events.
Food Shortage Looming (Zetatalk)
Early in the ZetaTalk saga the Zetas warned that worldwide food shortages would appear during the 3 years prior to the pole shift. The topic of food shortages was featured in the April 6, 2008 newsletter. Just when the food shortages appeared is debatable, but worldwide shortages began appearing in the year 2000 and have steadily gotten more acute. The April 27, 2008 newsletter detailed a rice shortage, resulting in worldwide rationing. At the start of the ZetaTalk saga in 1995, the Zetas warned that drought would be the major cause of devastation affecting crops. They warn that family gardens, and developing the skill sets necessary for successful gardening such as saving seed will almost be a necessity, if not prior to the pole shift then certainly after the pole shift.
