Global Cooling and Food Shortages

Are we prepared with energy and food for the current global cooling?

For the second time in little over a year, it looks as though the world may be heading for a serious food crisis........None of this has given much cheer to farmers. In Canada and northern America summer planting of corn and soybeans has been way behind schedule, with the prospect of reduced yields and lower quality........In China, the world's largest wheat grower, they have been battling against the atrocious weather
In Europe, the weather has been a factor in well-below average predicted crop yields in eastern Europe and Ukraine.

Canada’s wheat production may fall 18 percent this year as dry, cool conditions in the western Prairies slow crop development........Cooler temperatures for the past four to six months may curb yields to 33.4 bushels an acre, the lowest initial projection in seven years
