Could Extreme Cold Weather Cause Food Shortages?

Snow in North Dakota in June? It happened in 2009.. A friend in Alberta, Canada, said at the time people were wondering if they’d have a spring season there with frost warnings well into June.

A headline that spring read “Crops Under Stress as Tempertures Fall.” It brings up an important question. What if we face a greater threat from cooling weather than from global warming? Some scientists are saying it’s possible, based on the way the sun is behaving.

It reminds me of a movie from the 1970’s called Deadly Harvest where cold weather caused crop failures and food shortages. The family featured in the story decided it was time to grow food using hydroponics. Back in the ‘70’s there were concerns about a coming ice age, not global warming.

Who’s right about which way the climate will change? We’ll have to wait and see. Be prepared for change.

To see Deadly Harvest, buy a copy by first clicking on its title linked in this post. Then get ready for some thought provoking entertainment.

  1. When the midwest grain belt gets hit by climate change, we are in for some trouble on all fronts. A hungry population leads to much danger. It won’t be pretty.
