Bad weather in the United States and disease in China are threatening food shortages globally and massive inflation. Our national security and stability is at stake over the next few years.
One of the biggest reasons inflation has remained so low over the past half decade is record growing seasons in the United States and Russia for #corn #wheat and #soybeans However this year is the worst season on record as cold, rainy weather delayed #plant19 by several weeks.
Planting progress for all three crops was beyond dismal this year. In fact, it was the slowest planting progress ever on record and many farmers simply chose to skip this year.

It wasn’t an Act of God. It was an Act of Chevron. An Act of Exxon. An Act of Big Oil. gregpalast.com/new-orleans-wi… #NewOrleans #Louisiana #HurricaneKatrina #Barry #BigOil #Pollution #Environment #ClimateChange
Take a look at these numbers dug out of #Louisiana state records:

Conoco 3.3 million acres
Exxon Mobil 2.1 million acres
Chevron 2.7 million acres
Shell 1.3 million acres

These are the total acres of wetlands removed by just four oil companies over two decades.
#NewOrleans used be to a long, swampy way from the Gulf of Mexico. #Hurricanes & storm surges had to cross a protective mangrove forest nearly a 100 miles thick. Then Standard Oil, Exxon’s prior alias, began channeling pipelines & tanker routes thu the soft delta prairie grass.

1/4 EYES ON: I'm still pointing at "Hurricane Barry" and saying something is up!!

Doesn't feel right, check this thread out. I got this tweet today, NWS is predicting an apocalypse. But I saw on TV last night people walking around bourban street? No Rain.
Last night NOLA - #Barry fizzled & turned, literal quotes from the story:
"Never mind, the National Weather Service said Friday" "The storm ultimately deviated a little further west of the mouth of the river and did not intensify as much as it could have."

No rain now, just before landfall??

In 2005 I explained exactly how #NewOrleans drowned and would drown again, maybe in the next few days... gregpalast.com/new-orleans-wi… #Louisiana #HurricaneKatrina #Barry #BigOil
I hope you don’t think #Trump and his army corps of engineers gives a damn about a black city sinking. #Katrina turned #Louisiana from blue to red, a form of voter purging that includes murder in its method. gregpalast.com/new-orleans-wi… #Barry
But DON’T blame the Lady. #Katrina killed no one. In fact, she missed the city of #NewOrleans completely, going wide to the east. It wasn’t Mother Nature that drowned, suffocated, de-hydrated and starved nearly 2,000 people in 2005. This is the real story. gregpalast.com/how-mother-nat…

(1) IMO #HurricaneBarry's NOLA impact will be FAR WORSE than forecast.

Cat 1 vs TS label only means WIND SPEED - which is largely irrelevant in this case.

The VOLUME OF WATER that will come in exceeds what the barriers/pumps can handle.

River already high, ground sodden.
(2) I would love it if my above prediction turns out to be wrong. Pre-disaster talk that under- or over-estimates the impact can cause problems in future disasters. Responsible people try to get it right.
(3) Read this article to see why I am extra worried about NOLA this time.

The Atlantic is beginning to wake up as Tropical Storm #Barry will impact the Gulf States over the next 48-72 hours and invest #93L over the Atlantic's Main Development Region. The Calibrated ECMWF EPS has locked onto a 80-90%+ chance for this storm to develop.
The small burst in activity over the Atlantic may be attributed to the passage of the Madden Julian Oscillation, currently passing Africa and moving out over the Indian Ocean. Research has shown the MJO enhances the frequency of seedlings for TCs and modifies the large-scale env
If #93L ends up finding a way to develop into a tropical cyclone, the suppressed phase of a strong Kelvin wave will likely destructively interfere with the storm in a few days, either weakening the disturbance, or killing it (unless the disturbance can lift out of the tropics)

1) Now that #Barry has formed in the Gulf of Mexico, let's talk about how the forecast has evolved from a few days ago.

First, it appears the GFS handled Barry's initial structure better, with a low-level circulation removed from the mid-level vortex.
2) This is a result of continued northerly shear & dry air advection, which is both from the upper-level ridge poleward of Barry & also a dangling PV Streamer which folded under the ridge off the eastern coast.
3) While previous forecasts had Barry track west towards the LA/TX border, its decoupled structure argues against that now.

The system is now more likely to be steered by low-level flow into a weakness. The ridge SE of Barry is stronger in the low-levels than the one to the NW.

Finished season 1 of #Barry last night. I've never seen a tonal shift this intensely satisfying outside of anime. It's actually something I especially love in anime - funny/cutesy show that goes mega dark in a hurry.
I think there's actually a deeper meaning to this than just "this is an original idea." It really hammers home how you really can't balance a normal life with a life of crime. It may seem possible for a while, but it always catches up to you in the end.
I haven't watched Better Call Saul yet, but I gather it's more comedic than Breaking Bad and therefore maybe closer to this but yes, I frequently thought of BB while watching this.
