Thoughts of the Anizasi disapearance almost A thousand years ago came to mind. A drought event like they experenced is not out of the realm of possibility.
How much longer are we going to be able to do and subidize unsubstianable activities on marginal acres?
Just a few ?'s I have been mulling around the last few days

Have y'all looked @ the paleo section on drought site? N. Amer. had "spells" worse than the '30s last 200 yrs pre-1200 AD.

i agree on the peak civilization..........
we are not there yet, not by a mile..........but what we are seeing in commodities is a glimpse..........its the start........
you thought the fiscal cliff was a headline story.........my guess is, we go over something much bigger and much worse when its all said and done.........
this also goes hand in hand with a net zero sum with regards to standards of living and wealth on a world scale..........everything will rebalance until the zit pops........
doubt I am around to see that, but who knows.........
