FRIDAY MORNING IN ENERGY: And I’d like to talk energy, but really, I’ve got to talk trade first after we’ve got new tariffs coming, a lot of research notes, and very nervous markets… #OOTT #tradewar #China #trade
… as always you can follow our coverage here on Reuters.com. Our lead story right now is, the US escalated the trade war with more tariffs after the Chinese made major changes in the agreement that blew everything up earlier in the week.

Trump has said he’s in no rush to complete the deal. So we’ve got that going for us. #trade #china Ttradewar

Farmers face the biggest Brexit hit and still they don’t think they need to worry! THREAD
In a grim report published on Friday, the #government Agricultural, Horticultural and Development Board @TheAHDB predicted that post-Brexit #farming incomes would fall by 25%. @FarmingUK /1
This wasn’t just in an apocalyptic #NoDeal scenario. If it was, farmers seeing this figure could mutter Project Fear and carry on their arduous work. The problem is that this collapse occurs IN ANY BREXIT SCENARIO @bbcfarmingtoday. /2
It is no exaggeration that entire enterprises, for example poultry production, could be unviable if the AHDB predictions are correct as @RCorbettMEP notes. This is a problem because, in Shropshire @BBCShropshire poultry accounts for 86% of all cattle and livestock. /3

I think we can all agree that food is pretty important for survival.

Climate Change is already impacting food security- it is not a distant, ambiguous concern: 

More than 1 million acres of US cropland ravaged by floods

"A “whiplash” between very dry periods, followed by very wet periods, is exactly what we can expect from climate change"

#Tech in #Farming has been changing the world since the invention of the wheel millenniums ago. Since then, all new innovations either make crops easier to #harvest, more bountiful shorter farming time and more resilient and healthier crops.

Want to know what #tech is hot now?
#Hydroponics has been a thing for a while now while #urbanfarming is still a growing idea. Among #tech that are being used in #farming are drones, #IoT and use of data analytics to ensure the precise farming.

While some may not be tangible but they result to exponential results!

🔥🔥 MUST READ THREAD - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT 🔥🔥

Our government was infiltrated by COMMUNISTS almost 20 years ago, at least, and it continues to this day. None other than George #Soros helped to accomplish it.

*Please retweet this thread, it needs to be seen!* 👇👇
This went on with the cooperation of #BillClinton and our own Congress with a pilot program in 1999 and a permanent agency in 2000.

1/ Here’s what I found touring farming businesses around Newark and #Nottinghamshire yesterday for @ffc_commmission #ffccontheroad (Grateful for my @CoticLtd bike!) #food #farming #countryside
2/ Farming dominates the rural landscape. But in most rural areas more people work in industry than agriculture. #ffccontheroad
3/ Farmers told me that while their generation has had to diversify not only farm activity, but their own skill set. They need to be mechanics, accountants, labourers, investors, land managers and entrepreneurs. They typically have fewer staff than their parent’s generation.
