[This geoengineered drought is nothing less than a massive land grab and effort to move people off the land and into big population centers a la Agenda 21, in addition to other nefarious humanity-crippling intentions. If and when farmers sell off to big Agra and other well monied psychopathic interests, you can be sure the rain will return. They've done it before. At any rate, take heed and have plenty of stored food and water on hand. - Zen]

Are dust bowl conditions  returning  to the western half of the country? The Federal government has declared portions of 11 states to be “disaster areas”. And of course these extremely dry conditions are going to severely affect food prices.  The following are 15 reasons why your food bill is going to start soaring…

15 Reason Why Your Food Bill Is Going To State Soaring

Source: Michael Snyder, Economic Collapse

Did you know that the U.S. state that produces the most vegetables is going through the worst drought it has ever experienced and that the size of the total U.S. cattle herd is now the smallest that it has been since 1951?  Just the other day, a CBS News article boldly declared that “food prices soar as incomes stand still“, but the truth is that this is only just the beginning.  If the drought that has been devastating farmers and ranchers out west continues, we are going to see prices for meat, fruits and vegetables soar into the stratosphere.  Already, the federal government has declared portions of 11 states to be “disaster areas”, and California farmers are going to leave half a million acres sitting idle this year because of the extremely dry conditions.  Sadly, experts are telling us that things are probably going to get worse before they get better (if they ever do).  As you will read about below, one expert recently told National Geographic that throughout history it has been quite common for that region of North America to experience severe droughts that last for decades.  In fact, one drought actually lasted for about 200 years.  So there is the possibility that the drought that has begun in the state of California may not end during your entire lifetime.

This drought has gotten so bad that it is starting to get national attention.  Barack Obama visited the Fresno region on Friday, and he declared that “this is going to be a very challenging situation this year, and frankly, the trend lines are such where it’s going to be a challenging situation for some time to come.”

According to NBC News, businesses across the region are shutting down, large numbers of workers are leaving to search for other work, and things are already so bad that it “calls to mind the Dust Bowl of the 1930s“…

In the state’s Central Valley — where nearly 40 percent of all jobs are tied to agriculture production and related processing — the pain has already trickled down. Businesses across a wide swath of the region have shuttered, casting countless workers adrift in a downturn that calls to mind the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

If you will recall, there have been warnings that Dust Bowl conditions were going to return to the western half of the country for quite some time.

Now the mainstream media is finally starting to catch up.

And of course these extremely dry conditions are going to severely affect food prices.  The following are 15 reasons why your food bill is going to start soaring…

#1 2013 was the driest year on record for the state of California, and 2014 has been exceptionally dry so far as well.

#2 According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, 91.6 percent of the entire state of California is experiencing “severe to exceptional drought” even as you read this article.

#3 According to CNBC, it is being projected that California farmers are going to let half a million acres of farmland sit idle this year because of the crippling drought.

#4 Celeste Cantu, the general manager for the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority, says that this drought could have a “cataclysmic”impact on food prices…

Given that California is one of the largest agricultural regions in the world, the effects of any drought, never mind one that could last for centuries, are huge. About 80 percent of California’s freshwater supply is used for agriculture. The cost of fruits and vegetables could soar, says Cantu. “There will be cataclysmic impacts.”

#5 Mike Wade, the executive director of the California Farm Water Coalition, recently explained which crops he believes will be hit the hardest…

Hardest hit would be such annual row crops as tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, cantaloupes, garlic, peppers and corn. Wade said consumers can also expect higher prices and reduced selection at grocery stores, particularly for products such as almonds, raisins, walnuts and olives.

  1. I think this will become one more Pro-GMO push as food become to costly or for that mater the only seeds that grow ..

  2. PRICELESS (Documentary) This is just another one that belong in that topic

    Every morning, every United States senator wakes up and his first thought is… “Today I have to raise $20,000… or at the end of the next elections I will not have a job.” This documentary is about the government and citizens who want to do a better job for the country they love. Why is it that so many Americans seem concerned about the impact of money on the elected leaders? Is it because some of the policies they’re making or lack of oversight that’s affecting people’s daily lives?

    Given the major mishaps the US government has let happened, or ignored, or funded with tax dollars, maybe that is why every election year so many of the people vote for the candidate who’ll promise the most change. But, can anyone office-holder, with the way things work, or don’t work in the Washington DC, keep their promise to represent ordinary Americans? And if money really is the change-stopper how exactly does that happen?

    Steve Cowan set out on the road to follow the money trail, to find out who the government is really working for and if not the people what can be done to take it back. The search for answers begins in a supermarket because before getting into energy, or foreign policy, Steve thought to start simple. The need for healthy food is about as basic as it gets and we don’t usually think of whether it’s wholesome or not as being affected by money and politics.

    No matter where Steve traveled in California’s central valley, often called nation’s fruit and vegetable basket, he was surrounded by crops being sprayed with all sorts of insecticides, herbicides and fungicides. And according to the State’s department of pesticide regulation, over 100 million pounds of these chemicals, many extremely toxic, are used each year in the central valley alone. Lot of these pesticides can easily contaminate our water and soil, so Steve wondered if the government is aware of the danger.

  3. hmm? so one state that also ripped out dams that stored water for crops to save a smelt or some useless fish that could have been bred in aquariums for release in flood years to re spread.. is the only/main supplier?
    sorry how many items re mex imports of such have i seen with assorted complaints about it?
    it may be a 10 yr drought..it may well not be too.
    and sorry the rest of the droughted states? well last time I looked you have almost every place BUT cali under snow or rain etc
    if you guys cant store water with all hat snow ice etc you get most years? and learn to be Careful! not wash cars daily weekly not run taps before you need to use ie before a shower or to run cool on a warm day. then you might deserve to run out. wear clothers(outer) for more than one day, reuse wash water for two loads etc.
    its NOT hard

    • LOL .. .. Yes I have to tone it done sometimes George when i post these in other sites . Really they can fucking rot in the shit pool hell they deserve . and by the way Its “ASSHOLES!”
      Thanks Geo .. keep on blasting them

  4. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68WSPU7w7EE But also google Howard Lyman because there you will find much more info to obtain -and faster than via video
    This is the kind of action that has to happen more and more. Also google wild Plants that are edible

    and check this out: https://www.google.fi/search?q=wild+plants+that+are+edible&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=AtUFU-eUNM2DyAPMsYFw&ved=0CDcQsAQ&biw=1171&bih=594

    Since I believe that ALL events -even the most horrible ones- have a Cosmic Message in them about something Cosmic and Divine we’ve somehow neglected or forgotten or not chosen to care about , thus all these less than perfect /less than wanted events and situations and states occur and won’t stop until we remember and honor those Divine ways of being, doing again.
    In this “where to get one’s food”-thing is screaming loud and clear to me to go out and learn as much as I ever can about the Wild Food Life is providing Its Children -all free! This whole Planet WOULD be a true Garden of Eden if it wasn’t that Man has destroyed it!
    In Scandinavia -especially in Finland- the autumn Harvesting of all the edible treasures that Nature provides it harvested to a high degree -but by no means all of it….
    Here’s some more: https://www.google.fi/search?q=wild+plants+that+are+edible&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=AtUFU-eUNM2DyAPMsYFw&ved=0CDcQsAQ&biw=1171&bih=594#q=how+many+wild+edible+berries+grow+in+Finland&tbm=isch

    and the last Inspirational Wild Edible Plants web[site: https://www.google.fi/search?q=wild+plants+that+are+edible&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=AtUFU-eUNM2DyAPMsYFw&ved=0CDcQsAQ&biw=1171&bih=594#q=how+many+wild+edible+Mushsooms+grow+in+Finland&tbm=isch&facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=YFNDHdc8usNPsM%253A%3Bd5l8w48IX__arM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.dlc.fi%252F~marian1%252Fgourmet%252Fpic%252Ff_cep.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.dlc.fi%252F~marian1%252Fgourmet%252Fi_mushro.htm%3B263%3B263

    Google Edible Plants for your own Country /Area. These I have here are for Finland = Kinda Canada northern latitude/s (Vegetation -especially the wild one- follows latitudes more than just Countries , of course with a few exceptions)
    Yeah, California -right now- is DRYING away from no rains at all! and England is being flushed away from so much rain so at least half the country is UNDER water! But as long as your Neck of the Woods have somewhat normal growing conditions this is one important food source, not to spit at but to use the way it was intended by Life.
    So, the saving grace will be to learn “all”about the Wild Edible Plants and learn to harvest them . That’s my two cents :)
