#2 Our Southwest is in a dust bowl now. Looks like another summer of no rain. The same for Mexico.
Obama has fixed our farmers in California. No water for irrigation. So with no efforts to correct these problems more chronic problems. Obamas stash will only go so far. Food items will be very expensive. Another government decision that creats an investment opportunity for a few.
Thats why wall street loves the guy and will be big donors. Its like a hostile takeover. The business is gutted or canabalized. The people, well they are an afterthought. Only the government will be allowed to manage the mess they created and you know how well they will do at that.

#3 Since a lot of the damage is man-made the next administration can pull miracles by reversing a few key policies. Imagine opening up oil drilling in the US, keystone pipeline and all the jobs created. The effect that would have on fuel prices. Then think about reversing a few decision like the water one in California and how that would affect food prices. Probably take two years into the next administration to really see the affects but they would be noticeable.
Just sad that folks have such poor long term memories. Communism's complete and utter failure wasn't all that long ago and people still gave it a second shot twenty years later. We will probably go through one last 'attempt' in twenty years.

#4 rjschwarz maddening isn't it. So much water north central US. Pipe it down. One lake of fresh water is flooding lands now. Long ago it grew larger than the great lakes. This happened before the last mini ice age by the way. Get government out of the way and the people will solve this problem fast. Look at Isreal where they make the desert bloom.

"Climatologists kept repeating the message that climate change meant that Australia was headed for permanent drought. They convinced gullible politicians to waste billions on useless infrastructure to prepare for neverending drought"
Things are difficult again this year. Several areas of the world are not following the plan.

#6 Man I am buggared. Tallygaroopna and Katamatite are some of the towns dealing with the flood. Must be a local thing. Just trying to say or spell them is so my bad. Crikey!
