orgprophet: spinifex ... you can not prep if you can not get things, when the gfc hit it was a liquidity issue ... banks stopped trusting other banks to be able to pay so the system was grinding to a halt .... when confidence erodes that credit no longer is issued to

orgprophet: other banks or other suppliers of goods, the shelves will become empty ... banks can become closed, credit cards all suspended ... and you will have to live on what you have available ... this happens when hyperinflation kicks in or confidence is lost

spinifex: A major storm front is supposed to lash South Oz this arvo. Winds to 120k. A good test for the pallet wrap hut!

WolfDen: Yeah sounds like good weather Spinifex!

spinifex: Getting some good rains now. Hope it extends to the dry areas 100km north of here - farms up there have been missing out a lot this winter and struggling to keep stock fed.

The article is based on work, by a guy that has a YT channel called ice age farmer, that I watch from time to time. There is massive global crop failure and swine flu etc.. And global economy is in failure.

Oh man. Aaaand on that note, I need to simultaneously convince my talkative 8yo that I don't have a big stash of anything while simultaneously re-stashing the long term stuff and hiding it. Thankyou for the heads up, those numbers do not look good

i think something we should consider is to start growing some basics on our own. I am testing simple hydroponics set ups (6 and 24 pod rigs) for kang kong and some other veges. I am trying out tomatoes again because the recent rains here killed the fledgling tomato plan. must remember to keep the plants that can't take the rain into the house.
Even for those of us who live in an apartment, we _can_ grow some food
The third world will starve first. All those poor illiterates who regularly chant Death to the West. I won't be making any donations to famine relief or losing any sleep over it.
Not really, because the goody tooshoos bleeding hearts will jump up and down enough here to force the government to force farmers to give X amount of their produce to said charity to send to third world countries leaving us with even less, meanwhile destroying prime farm land in favour of UN boot licking to build massive wind and solar farms
By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail. -- Ben Franklin
Smart luck is when you work your arse off, so when the opportunity presents itself, you don't have to pray for dumb luck.
And meanwhile, all we ever hear about is the left banging on about "man-made climate change", whilst conveniently ignoring the role of the sun as the predominant driver of climate on this planet. Because you can tax "carbon polluters" but you can't tax the sun...
Our friends at the ATO have already been taxing the sun.
Those with solar and connected to the grid ... you have paid tax on collecting sunlight or had it added to your annual taxable income. Those who have failed to declare their 'income' from solar generation have probably also committed a tax evasion offence and will at some point be asked to pay the missing amount plus 'interest'. I heard on the radio one old couple who lost their pension because 'income' earned by having grid connected solar put them over the income threshold for qualifying.
If you round up and deport the cheap illegal workforce that sustains the industry ... the vegies don't pick and pack themselves and the legit workers they get replaced with don't do it at the same cost.
Environmental laws in California are making things very hard for horticulture industry as well.
