In the late 12th Century, when the Medieval Warm Period ended, there was a famine that started in Mongolia and then moved into China. Now that the 20th Century Warm Period is ending, the famine is starting to happen again. The famine started in Mongolia three years ago and is not entering China.
We can expect grain prices to spike, and then... maybe what happened eight hundred years ago .... war!!! Hunger is a great motivator. Just look at Genghis Khan when he took his people to China and then tried to take them to Japan.
I would rather have a little Global Warming than another Little Ice Age as Global Cooling is much more likely to cause world famine. Again, the danger will be war!
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it! Rogue

UPDATE 1-China buys 400,000 T Australian, 100,000 T Canadian wheat

Feb 20 (Reuters)- China has bought about 400,000 tonnes of Australian wheat and about 100,000 tonnes of Canadian wheat in recent days, European traders said on Wednesday.

The purchases were in addition to about 350,000 tonnes of U.S.-origin wheat that Chinese interests also bought in past days.

"The Chinese appear to have a larger requirement for wheat than thought and were today again making inquiries about, and checking prices for, large purchases running into hundreds of thousands of tonnes for May shipment," one trader said.

The Australian wheat was thought to be largely for April shipment, with some for the first half of May. It was mainly Australian standard white wheat, traders said.

Flour mills in China, the world's top consumer and producer of the staple grain, have resumed wheat imports from the United States and Canada, spurred by record domestic prices and falling global prices of the grain, traders said in January.

Some European traders said they believed China had bought more than the 350,000 tonnes of U.S. wheat reported in past days, with market talk ranging up to 400,000 to 500,000 tonnes.

"I believe the new round of Chinese wheat purchases from the U.S., Australia and Canada has reached 1 million tonnes," a trader said.

Chinese importers were also said to be checking prices for noticeable volumes of corn because of high domestic prices but no purchases were reported by traders.(Reporting by Michael Hogan; Editing by Anthony Barker)

Long drought threatens Mongolia's main river
English.news.cn 2012-04-24

ULAN BATOR, April 24 (Xinhua)-- Mongolia's main river is in danger of drying up due to a continuous drought, prompting the government to call for water-saving measures.

Minister of Nature, Environment and Tourism Damdin Tsogtbaatar made the appeal on Tuesday after visiting the Tula River, which has seen some sections of its riverbed exposed.

Tula is the most important domestic water source for residents in the country's capital. Its drying up not only affects Ulan Bator's environment but also threatens the water supply for more than 100 million residents, nearly half the country's population.

The long-lasting drought and increasing desertification and reduced vegetation along the river were believed to be the main causes.

What’s amazing is that every investigative agency in the country has proved them wrong yet they persist in being total idiots and publicly making complete fools of themselves.
Where would anyone get the notion that the Democratic nominee for president was never vetted while assuming he’s using logic in making such a determination? Does his logic also tell him Obama’s opponents were too stupid to check him out? That maybe the press sat on their ass and had no interest in all the excitement this young new charge was generating?
Logic indeed!
Good Morning Poppo!

<quoted text>Very true.
The bottom line is this :Barack Obama is the President Of The United States.
He is regarded as such by the ENTIRE WORLD.
The Majority of the American Electorate awarded him a SECOND term.
That is ALOT of folks who dismiss the the Birfoons as crackpots.
Even the Majority of Republicans dont beleive them .
Yet....the birfoons still act as though there is some moment of vindication awaiting them ...a moment anyone can see is never coming.
History is going to use the Birthers as an example of a synptom of teh Right's slide toward incontinance and irrelevance...nothing more then an embarrasing footnote.
The world has no respect for Obama. People respect us for two reasons. Our friends because we help protect them and our enemies because they know what will happen if they piss us off. Now our firends, like Israel, can not count on us and the Muslims, Russia, China, etc. no they can push us as they know Obama will do ....nothing!!!
Speak softly and carry a big stick. And if they get out of line, whack them, whack them hard!!! Then, and only then, will you adversaries respect you.
Oh, it works for cops too. Law abiding citizens respect cops as they are protected by them. And the bad guys respect cops as they know what will happen to them if the sops catch them. Same goes for countries.

Jacques,
Did you hear Vice President Joe Biden's remarks yesterday about self defense?
He said, "Buy a shotgun, not an AR-15"

Have you ever seen someone hit with a shotgun blast?
I can assure you, at close range it will excavate an area the size of a grapefruit.

Who's the "WE" that's paying the president's salary? You are probably collecting a check on my hard earned dollars because there are so many of you people on public aid till its a crying shame. As far as hating you...you're not worth the energy. It's like this.. I don't like pit bulls, I don't like snakes and I don't trust white folk. Call it what you want, frankly my dear Watson, I don't give a dam! You are all a bunch of coward ass tricks. You can't even admit to your racism so you lie and say it's his policies. Me, I flat out own what I say. I don't like you back stabbing sons of bitches. I said it and I'll say again and it has to do with your damn lying ass ways, your attitude, and hatred. It is seen more often in Caucasians than in any other group sharing our planet... Which is why MOST people do not have a "favorable" view of youR IGNORANT ASSES! People like you don't help your plight at all.

Donors Trust: Little-Known Group Helps Wealthy Backers Fund Right-Wing Agenda in Secret / February 19, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/aao2v2c
Since 1999, the nonprofit charity Donors Trust has handed out nearly $400 million in private donations to more than 1,000 right-wing and libertarian groups. The fact it has been able to quietly do so appears to explain why it exists: Wealthy donors can back the right-wing causes they want without attracting public scrutiny. The most detailed accounting to date shows Donors Trust funds a wish list of right-wing causes, prompting Mother Jones magazine to label it "the dark-money ATM of the right." We’re joined by John Dunbar, politics editor at the Center for Public Integrity and co-author of the group’s months-long investigation into Donors Trust. "They’re essentially a pass through," Dunbar says of Donors Trust. "They act as a kind of a middleman between what are very large, well-known private foundations created mostly by corporate executives, like the Kochs, for example, and they direct the money of those contributions to a very large network of right-leaning, free-market think tanks across the country."
