I admire his passion. Shame it’s not shared by the ones who have the power to do something about it.


Aside from the military conflict he refers to as being a cause for such a lot of food shortages particularly in war ravaged countries, there’s another kind of conflict that seems to be on the increase which will have just as bad an effect on the rest of the world including on developed lands... commercial conflicts, sometimes referred to as ‘trade wars’ are already starting to have an impact.


These things have been compounded by COVID. 


In NZ and Australia, orchardists are struggling to harvest crops due to a labour shortage as low paid foreign workers are not available due to border closures caused by COVID. Strawberry growers in NZ look close to going out of business as it’s no longer a viable business to be in.


The same will no doubt be true for other crops. There’s either going to be a massive shortage of food or the prices are going to go up... a lot!


Probably both.
