    Camouflage foods!!!

    Perfect for the militia boys!

    Will have to order up a few cartons for the loKal Kounty Freedom Korps (and no, we’re not affiliated with the KKK, why do you ask?).

    Oops. Gotta run. Forgot to raise the (Confederate battle) flag at 0700!

    Failing crops as result of climate change

    Rice crops dwindle as a result of climate change

    Vietnam is one of the world’s largest rice producers but an increase in the number of storms exacerbated by extensive flooding brought about by climate change is destroying the livelihoods of the nation’s rice farmers.

    Below are some of the impacts that are currently visible throughout the U.S. and will continue to affect these regions, according to the Third National Climate Assessment Report 2, released by the U.S. Global Change Research Program:

    Northeast. Heat waves, heavy downpours, and sea level rise pose growing challenges to many aspects of life in the Northeast. Infrastructure, agriculture, fisheries, and ecosystems will be increasingly compromised. Many states and cities are beginning to incorporate climate change into their planning.

    Northwest. Changes in the timing of streamflow reduce water supplies for competing demands. Sea level rise, erosion, inundation, risks to infrastructure, and increasing ocean acidity pose major threats. Increasing wildfire, insect outbreaks, and tree diseases are causing widespread tree die-off.

    Southeast. Sea level rise poses widespread and continuing threats to the region’s economy and environment. Extreme heat will affect health, energy, agriculture, and more. Decreased water availability will have economic and environmental impacts.

    Midwest. Extreme heat, heavy downpours, and flooding will affect infrastructure, health, agriculture, forestry, transportation, air and water quality, and more. Climate change will also exacerbate a range of risks to the Great Lakes.

    Southwest. Increased heat, drought, and insect outbreaks, all linked to climate change, have increased wildfires. Declining water supplies, reduced agricultural yields, health impacts in cities due to heat, and flooding and erosion in coastal areas are additional concerns.

    It can and will happen here too. There’s no “prepping” for this.

    We just noticed this for the first time ever in our area of Virginia. In two different stores: produce, bread, and chicken were sold out; and eggs and cheese were in very low supply. We asked if they had more and were told that everything they had was out already. It seemed really odd. The shelves were even more empty at the two stores we visited than in the picture shown here. Why is this happening? Hyperinflation? The economy? There is no bad weather happening now.
