China's rising grain prices could signal global food crisis (2003)

China's rising grain prices could signal global food crisis (2003):

"China's rising grain prices could signal global food crisis - It's Happening Faster Than We Expected. The Agence France-Presse Is reporting that a major famine may be looming for China and that their purchases of US grain could multiply. The AFP Story does not address the serious Peak Oil and Gas issues raised by Dale Allen Pfeiffer in Eating Fossil Fuels or acknowledge that US grain harvests are falling. It does add the new wrinkle of how Global Warming (caused by burning oil and gas) continually reduces crop yields. On top of a recent CNN report announcing that soon the US will not be able to export any grain at all, it is clear that the effects of Peak Oil and Gas have begun to hit sooner than anyone expected.
