No Food Reserves?

If the Earth is on fire, there will be global crop and food losses, yes! If the Earth is cooling, there will be global crop and food losses, yes! If a very large volcano explodes there can be a global crop loses and food shortages, yes! If a very large meteorite hits the Earth, there can be global crop and food, yes! So, has the Congress made sure that there are enough food reserves to see the American people through difficult times as the nation adapts to any of the above ? Or, have the esteemed members of Congress and those caring government elite officials only made sure they and their own eat? If the ones who have food are those arming elites in government, do you plan to simply starve to death while they and theirs eat well? Let us be frank, there is no excuse for Congress to have ensured that there is an adequate food reserve. Have not every government and most politicians screamed doom is upon us! So, how much food reserves are there? It just takes one big volcanic explosion to disrupt food production for years. Knowing the incredible level of dumb that permeates all levels of the U.S. government, I am willing to bet there are insufficient reserves to meet any serious loss of of crops caused by warming, cooling, volcanic explosions or even a rogue meteorite. How will deal with all those making big bucks eating as you watch yours starve?

What If, A Year Without Summer?

Luxury liners have life boats to protect passengers in case of a rare sinking event. Even though rare, a sinking ship with no life boats is a death sentence for the passengers and crew. Planes have emergency slides and life vests just in case there is an emergency on the ground or over water. Without the vests and emergency slides in an emergency on the field or on water, passengers and crew most likely die horrible deaths. In 1816, a volcanoes erupted and gave the world a year without summer. Millions died as a consequence from the loss of food crops and cold. In 536 A.C.E., a volcano exploded with such force that it ushered in the Dark Ages and caused the deaths of untold millions as it blanketed the earth in a shroud of dust. Having knowledge of these past events, The Congress and bureaucrats are not prepared to deal with the consequences of such an even occurring. And, even though low in probability, if it happens the consequences will make the impact of global warming pale in comparison. On demand food delivery is premised on the belief that at no time will food production be greatly diminished world wide. So, with no global food reserves if such an event occurs, you, the reader, will die. Your fight to stop global warming! would be right up there with driving to a hearing to enact legislation to improve air safety measures and not using the seatbelt. Maybe, it is time for those in Congress and government to understand that focusing on only one possible disaster is not a strategy that maximizes survival. It is only a strategy that minimizes work and increases play time while leaving hundreds of millions vulnerable to a catastrophe with immediate consequences that make global warming seem tame.
