International Drought Concerns


There are many international drought concerns now:

 Droughts more worrying than flash floods: Balakrishnan

Sunday, Jan 15, 2012

SINGAPORE – While Dr Vivian Balakrishnam commended the recommendations put forward by the expert panel working to ease the flooding situation, he said more should be done to guard against dry spells as well…According to ST, Singapore is likely to face a dry spell soon, due to the north-east monsoon, which typically starts in February.

Argentine Drought May Be Worst for Crops in Over 70 Years
Jan 6, 2012

Dry weather that’s hurting soybean and corn crops in Argentina may cause more damage than the 2008-2009 drought that was the worst in 70 years, a farming group said today, disputing a government statement…Corn and soybean crops are suffering after weeks of low rainfall in Argentina and southern Brazil because of the La Nina weather pattern.

Argentine Production (Bloomberg – Jan 12, 2012)

…dry weather in South America threatened to reduce global grain supplies.

The USDA cut its estimate for Argentina’s corn production to 26 million tons, 10 percent less than last month’s forecast, and said soybean output may total 50.5 million tons, 2.9 percent below the December projection.

Israel Faces Official Drought for Year 8

Jan 2, 2012

Israel is being hit with another official drought for the eighth year in a row, according to the country’s Water Authority.

And of course, in 2012, many parts of the USA, Mexico, and Africa.  Because of its strident advocacy of portions of the homosexual agenda, it would not surprise me if California is not entering a time of drought.

Droughts and floods contribute to food shortages, higher food prices, and sometimes famines.

My 2009 book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect mentioned the following was about to happen:

Odd weather patterns result in food shortages and natural disasters. Matthew 24:7
The world is actually in a berserk transition, as the real age of peace is not yet here. It may be a period of chaos. It is the beginning of sorrows Matthew 24:8

Perhaps the droughts and odd weather problems can serve as another wake-up call. As my book indicated, weather-related troubles with their related food issues, of course, have been biblically expected:

7…And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:7-8).

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

Now there is good news as ultimately, God’s kingdom will come and those issues will be gone:

16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (Revelation 7:16-17)

And while that is true, a terrible hour of trial is coming first (Revelation 3:10). And prior to that, we should expect to see higher food prices (cf. Revelation 6:5-6).
