Hot summer sparks global food crisis

"This summer's heatwave has drastically cut harvests across Europe, plunging the world into an unprecedented food crisis, startling new official figures show.

Separate calculations by two leading institutions monitoring the global harvest show that the scorching weather has severely reduced European grain production, ensuring that the world will not produce enough to feed itself for the fourth year in succession, and plunging stocks to the lowest level on record. And experts predict that the damage to crops will be found to be even greater when the full cost of the heat is known."

While Iraq grabs the headlines, the real crises are gathering steam under the radar. They are all crises revolving around overpopulation and the exhaustion of non renewable resources. One way or another a revolution is coming.
