  Food price increases

Hmmm...I'm really not surprised with the raised prices of food that we
have rite now. What I'm surprised at are those people that claimed that
they are surprised that the food prices have increased.

Come on lar, where had you lived in? A cave?

Since a few years ago......even if you live in a cave, surely you had
noticed that the world's global climate had changed a lot.

The heatwaves that had killed off thousands in Europe and China, the
tsunami, the earthquakes, the sudden downpour and its resultant floods,
the droughts. All these are featured in the news. With these kind of
weather, how do you expect the grain crops to be ok? Rice, which is the
main staple grain in South East Asia can only be harvested in sunny
season. With the rains and flood coming in at unknown time, of course most
of the grains are lost.

Then, don't let me start about the biofuel. We planted these supposedly to
offset the petroleum's increased prices. But since it is more highly
prized than the common food grains, a lot of farmers had switched to these
biofuel plants. Now, we might have biofuel to run cars, but is it ok when
the rest of the poor people of the world died of hunger?

Since hurricane Katrina, the price of oil had started to increase. Now, it
is on the highest price ever set for per barrel. Since oil price is high,
commonsense said that the price of the rest of the items had to increase
too. The reason? All the transportation of items, inclusive of food items
depends on oil. What, you want the chickens to march across the road to
the slaughterhouse? A friend said, not to worry...we have fish to eat. Do
you know that most of the seas had been fished to near extinction? Bet you
don't know that...

Uh, don't forget that the human population is still on an exponential
rise. Of course, a person in a lifetime eats more that it supposed too. We
live to eat, not eat to live. Just see your friends plate, after they
finished their meal, they(most people) always left a bit of rice....which
they said for prosperity. whatever...

I really thank my God, that our family now has a higher income. At least,
we are able to still buy some rice for our meals and eat those with some

So, when you are having your meal, at least do spare a thought to the
unfortunate people. Eat what you can only, do not waste food. Remember, a
lot more people are hungry than those well fed.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
