A meandering blog with no clear topic. You will find me talking about knitting, building, kids, social and economic issues, Alaska, and lots of other stuff.

not looking good down under


I have heard for a while about the drought in Australia, and that it is affecting the wheat harvest. I didn't realize, however, that Australian farmers have already lost 40% of their harvest. That is really, really, bad. Wheat stores worldwide are already at a low level not seen in at least 26 years, and Australia is not the only part of the world facing drought and crop loss. And as global warming intensifies, it will only get worse.
