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.… #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...… #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.… #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.…

(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.

Reports of disturbances in #Barry. My dad's sister's second husband's third cousin lives there, and we drink in the same pub. He's gonna keep me in the loop.

The information on Barry is rolling in as we speak. Last night, 50 white men showed up to a fish🐟 and chip🍟 shop on 296 #HoltonRoad, if I recall correctly.

There seem to have been a few different instigators, a number of arrests were made in #Barry last night. They went to the fish and chip shop owned by #EdithGillespie, who has a husband who is a coloured man

If you go to @GlamArchives, there's a wealth of information about the 1919 race riots in #Newport, #Cardiff and #Barry. Loads, and loads, and loads.

We visited recently to learn our history for ourselves. Here's a piece about the #aftermath of the #1919RaceRiots in #Newport

A further echo of the disturbances at Newport was heard at the local police court on Friday, when 24 coloured men+7 white men were brought up on various charges, including unlawful assembling and rioting
in George Street, #CommericalRoad+#RuperraStreet and assaulting police constable Nancarrow and various other people. One of the coloured defendants had fought with the Monmouthshire regiment in the war

1. On Friday 6th June 1919, there was a #RaceRiot in the city of #Newport in #Gwent, #SouthWales. What happened in #Newport had a huge overwhelming effect on #RaceRelations for years to come. Here's a clipping from @nytimes about the #riot
2. As @renireni pointed out in Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race:

"Riots always seem to kick off in the summer." 🔥🔥🔥

In 1919, there were riots in:

3. According to the #history, a #black man insulted a #white woman in #Newport, which lead to an altercation. It kicked off in #GeorgeStreet [see below], where 3000 white people formed into a mob and attacked the houses of the two black people on the street.
