The Corn Is Dying All Over America

All over America the corn is dying.  If drought conditions persist in the middle part of the country, wheat and soybeans will be next.  Weeks of intense heat combined with extraordinarily dry conditions have brought many U.S. corn farmers to the brink of total disaster.  If there is not significant rainfall soon, many farmers will be financially ruined.  This period of time is particularly important for corn because this is when pollination is supposed to happen.  But the unprecedented heat and the extremely dry conditions are playing havoc with that process.  With each passing day things get even worse.  We have seen the price of a bushel of corn soar 41 percent since June 14th.  That is an astounding rise.  You may not eat much corn directly, but it is important to realize that corn or corn syrup is just about in everything these days.  Just look at your food labels.  In the United States today, approximately 75 percent of all processed foods contain corn.  So a huge rise in the price of corn is going to be felt all over the supermarket.  Corn is also widely used to feed livestock, and if this crisis continues we are going to see a significant rise in meat and dairy prices as well.  Food prices in America have already been rising at a steady pace, and so this is definitely not welcome news.

The weather conditions in the middle part of the country during the last couple of months have been highly unusual.  The following is from a recent article in the Los Angeles Times....

It's not that the Midwest hasn't been extremely hot before, and it's not that it hasn't been incredibly dry.

But it's unusual for a vast swath of the Midwest to be so very hot and so very dry for so very long -- particularly this early in the summer.

The current heat wave -- which is spurring comparisons to the catastrophic heat of 1936 --  is "out of whack," meteorologist Jim Keeney said Friday in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Corn crops typically pollinate and mature in June and early July.  That is why this time of the year is so vitally important for corn.  We have reached a make it or break it moment.

The following is how an Accuweather.com report described what is happening right now....

Either heat or drought can stress the stalks, but both can basically shut down the pollination process. When this happens few, small or no ears of corn form.

According to AccuWeather.com Agricultural Meteorologists, you can't raise a corn crop with less than an inch of rain over six weeks, combined with 100-degree and higher temperatures. However, these conditions have taken place in much of the southern corn belt through the week of July 4, 2012.

If pollination does not happen, corn farmers might as well give up.

Just check out what agricultural economist Chris Hurt said the other day....

"Pollination problems just can’t be overcome, even if the weather turns. There’s no turning back. There’s just failure."

At this point, half of all corn in the state of Indiana is already in poor shape.

With each passing day, the condition of the corn gets even worse.

As a recent article in the Chicago Tribune detailed, many farmers feel completely helpless at the moment....

Dave Kestel, who farms about 1,300 acres in Manhattan about 40 miles southwest of Chicago, said he feels helpless.

"Every day you get out there and it's the same heat and cloudless sky," he said. "You see your corn just withering out there, knowing you can't do anything about it."

The United States is suffering from a severe lack of rain.  Just look at the chart posted below.  According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, most of the country is experiencing drought conditions right now....

These drought conditions have also played a major role in the huge number of wildfires that we have seen lately.

There are a few northern states that are not feeling the drought right now, but otherwise the rest of the country is extremely dry.

So what does all of this mean for you and I?

A recent article by Holly Deyo summarized why we should all be praying for rain....

Since 75% of grocery store products use corn as a key ingredient, expect food prices to skyrocket. Corn is also a staple in many fast foods. Corn is in ethanol and the main food source or chickens. In addition to this, maize is in many things that aren't obvious like adhesives, aluminum, aspirin, clothing starch, cosmetics, cough syrup, dry cell batteries, envelopes, fiberglass insulation, gelatin capsules, ink, insecticides, paint, penicillin, powders, rugs and carpets, stamps, talcum, toothpaste, wallpaper, and vitamins. That's just for starters...

This is a huge heads up for you to purchase corn-using products NOW before these conditions reflect in grocery goods. It will be a narrow window of opportunity.

These thoughts are being echoed by many agricultural economists as well.  According to Businessweek, the outlook for U.S. food prices is bleak....

"When people look at rising prices for hamburger, butter, eggs and other protein sources from higher corn costs, that’s when more money ends up in the food basket," said Minneapolis- based Michael Swanson, a senior agricultural economist at Wells Fargo & Co., the biggest U.S. farm lender. "We were hoping for a break, and we aren’t going to get it."

Unfortunately, the fact that the corn is dying all over America is not just a problem for the United States.

As Businessweek also recently noted, the fate of U.S. corn affects the entire globe....

When rain doesn’t fall in Iowa, it’s not just Des Moines that starts fretting. Food buyers from Addis Ababa to Beijing all are touched by the fate of the corn crop in the U.S., the world’s breadbasket in an era when crop shortages mean riots.

This year they have reason to be concerned. Stockpiles of corn in the U.S. tumbled 48 percent between March and June, the biggest drop since 1996, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said last week. And that was before drought hit the Midwest.

The United States is the world’s biggest exporter of corn by far, and if there is a massive corn crop failure in America it is going to be felt to the four corners of the earth.

Just check out what Abdolreza Abbassian, a senior economist with the U.N. Food & Agriculture Organization, said the other day....

"Everyone watches the U.S. because they can rely on it. Without it, the world would starve."

Back in February, I wrote an article that suggested that we could see dust bowl conditions return to the middle part of this country in the years ahead.

A lot of people were skeptical of that article.

Not quite as many people are skeptical today.

The following is from a recent article posted on MSNBC entitled "Fears of new Dust Bowl as heat, drought shrivel corn in Midwest"....

Crop insurance agents and agricultural economists are watching closely, a few comparing the situation with the devastating drought of 1988, when corn yields shriveled significantly, while some farmers have begun alluding, unhappily, to the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Far more is at stake in the coming pivotal days: with the brief, delicate phase of pollination imminent in many states, miles and miles of corn will rise or fall on whether rain soon appears and temperatures moderate.

As I wrote about last week, if the weather does not turn around soon the implications are going to be staggering.

Even if we got some significant rainfall at this point a tremendous amount of damage has already been done according to the Washington Post....

Jay Armstrong, owner and operator of Armstong Farms in Kansas, flew his small plane over a portion of the affected area and landed with the impression that the potential damage is far worse than is commonly understood.

“At this time of year, when you look down in a place like Indiana or Illinois, you should see just lush green fields,” Armstrong said. “I saw bare soil. I just thought to myself, the market has no idea what’s coming.”

So is there significant rain in the forecast?

Unfortunately, the answer is no.

The National Weather Service says that the corn belt will experience "above-normal temperatures" and "below-normal rainfall" over the next week.

At this point it does not look like there will be any significant rainfall for the foreseeable future....

"We got a break in the temperatures over the weekend but no rain of significance is in sight for next seven days," said Jim Keeney, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service the US central region based in Kansas City, Missouri.

Needless to say, that is really bad news.

Right now we just have more heat and more dryness to look forward to.  The skies are like iron and the earth is like brass.  We like to think that we have conquered nature, but at moments such as these we see that is not true at all.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article about all of the reasons why we should be concerned about the second half of 2012.  In that article I did not even mention drought and crop failures.  Sometimes major problems have a way of piling on top of themselves.

The U.S. economy is already in bad enough shape without adding major crop failures to the mix.  This is something that we just don't need right now.

But it looks like we are going to have to deal with it.  Unless there is a major change in the weather, food prices are going to go up even more and large numbers of farmers and ranchers are going to be absolutely devastated.

Let us all pray for rain.  We desperately need it.

    Sure, you will find teens and others breaking into houses looking for “something for nothing”! They are lazy and smokin weed. Won’t work at burger king just want to take stuff to hawk. That doesn’t mean the world is coming to an end. I once had my best friend steal from me. They deny it. It hurt, but I learned to never let that person into my personal area. Don’t despair, find uplifting stories to read! There are good people out there doing GREAT things daily! I once had my car break down in the middle of the night. You know who pulled up to help me? An illegal immigrant. He spoke hardly any English but he drove me home and would not even take a dollar from me. He told me “some day..someone need help…you help him. And I have. The world is what you make it! Smile and the world smiles with you…cry and you CRY alone! Have a great day!

    • lowtolerance

      Yes, there are good people out there. Yet your encounters still leave you a judgmental old fool, don’t they? I smoke weed like it’s going out of style. The sign on my door says VP. It’s the result of years of hard work and putting myself through school. I’m a liberal yet I have a stack of ammo that atlas will never shrug off. Keep your foolish stereotypes and have a nice day.

      • sistergoldenhair

        Lowtolerance…you must be the Vp of bull!!! Ha. As for old I am far from it…I am a mature adult who put away weed years ago. Too bad you cant live in the real world..but must resort to getting high to survive. I bet my housekeeeper makes more money then you see in a year. Oh yeah I can be nasty when dealing with stinky dirty lowbrow pot heads. Boo hop what an old judgemental fool I have become..@xx

      • TX4Life

        Weed makes people lazy and most people realize that and outgrow smoking it by the age of 30. That is, if they aren’t planning to live off the productivity of others for the rest of their lives. Thankfully, many disability programs are now requiring drug tests and if you aren’t HTC free, no check for you!!!!!!!! VP? Of nothing significant.

  • bruce

    Thanks for putting this out there. Many farm states have not seen the impact of this recession as much as more urban states, due to good crops and high prices. That is about to change, in many areas farming drives the ecomony. They say here when farmers are happy, mainstreet is happy.

    You generally have a pretty good grasp of the topics, but think you need a bit more understanding on this subject. A large part of the wheat has already been harvested, combines already in the Dakotas. Even there wheat was mature weeks ago, the weather now is having little impact what happened a month ago did. Corn is indeed pollinating or has done so and temp and moisture stress are problems, but corn does not mature in june. A pollinated kernal is no bigger than a bb and virtual all water. Corn needs 2-2 half months after pollination to maturity. Much like an apple after the flower drys up it has been pollinated but takes months to maturity.

    • Cinderella Man

      Your wheat in the dakotas may be harvested Bruce but in MT we have winter and spring wheat. And the spring wheat is dying here buddy!!

  • Karen

    One more thing to say I mentioned I had left the military I left because I don’t believe in what they stand for they kill and rape innocent people I watched them issue the special forces army black riot gear they don’t issue black for desert deployments and I watched as truck load after truck load of ammo has been brought to the base where I worked the special forces will patrol this area and they are a pretty rough bunch folks the military do not care that is most they will arrest you and the government has given them full authority to do so.

    • Prepply

      Sounds like you left the military thinking that as a civilian things would be better or different. The police forces are getting issued the rest of that riot gear… They are following the same path.

  • Buzzy Watts

    I’m not worried. We can all just eat cake.

    • Prepply

      The cake is a lie.

  • bruce

    Where I am in central nebraska much of the corn is irrigated and looks good but looks do not always tell the story. Environmental stress always reduces yeild, but there is a long time until the crop is made so how much remains to be seen. As stated if pollination fails the game is over. Oh for you non farm people, “Plowing a crop under” is probably down with a disc today and not a moldboard plow. Non irrigated crops look tough, pastures are shot. Hay prices very high. Culling breeding herds should actually lower meat prcies in the short term due to increased supply. But when the factory gets killed (brood cows, sows and ewes) the futures meat production is lowered and prices go up. Reguardless of the naysayeers I am praying for rain. Our last rain was May 26th. Iwill be selling some cows next week.

    We’re down in Northern Alabama, planted a few acres, only half of it came up at all, the stuff that did come up is sad and done producing, its tough to find a full ear. Replanted wherever it didn’t grow well, a couple sprung up…. haven’t seen rain since. The only ones around here that are making it are the ones that planted early and loaded up with fertilizer so everything was full grown before the effects kicked in. P.S. Every Antichrist naysaying prayer and repentance, wake up, it’s called human responsibility, you are the reason for much of this judgment. Out of the abundance of the heart, man speaks.

  • Brooke

    This is not good news, but I’m sorry to say that this is what happens when you put “all your eggs in one basket”. We simply cannot rely on a single crop like this. The problem is monocultures and GMO seed. We need biodiversity with plants who have long roots evolved to bring water to the soil surface planted next to plants with short roots. Companion planting and permaculture techniques are insurance against Mother Nature. Nature is a synergy of everything in the environment and us humans, especially farmers, don’t seem to understand that. I live in central Illinois and I’m appalled at the lack of respect for the land that these big Ag farmers have. They leave their land naked all winter long constantly exposed to the elements. This is very bad for the soil. I work in IT and even I know about cover crops. It seems like the fundamentals of farming have been forgotten for the “easy” way of planting, spraying chemicals a couple times, and then harvesting. I am very much involved in the local food movement in my area and the organic farmers are doing just fine, but again, they use sustainable permaculture/companion planting techniques. It’s not rocket science, but it does take some extra work…heaven forbid!

    • Marilynn

      Excellent post, Brooke. Modern man thinks he knows everything and laughs at the popular notion that led up to the Dust Bowl of the 1930s: “The rain follows the plow.” Do modern agriculturists think they are smarter and more sophisticated when they plant vast swaths of genetically manipulated monocultures that are doused with a cocktail of toxins?

    • Zedge Hero

      Brooke,

  • 1madmomma

    I live in western Ohio and my husband is a farmer. (no I don’t like Monsanto and he knows it. I grow my own food. So don’t give me hate remarks!) His corn and soybean crops look bad. Corn is short and shriveled from the 100+ heat and no rain. And it is tasseling early due to stress. The soybeans are trying to blossom right now so this is the critical time for them. We desperately need rain. I have been keeping track of rainfall and in June we had 1.40″ and so far in July its 0″. July is typically our hottest/driest time of year.
    Also keep in mind that some of the midwestern states had high winds/derecho on June 29. Those 70+mph winds snapped some of the corn tops off. A double whammy to an already struggling crop. When those winds came thru here at first all I could see was a brown haze of dust. That tells how dry it is. Around here the older farmers are talking about how its like 1988. That was a bad year for farmers. Stock up on food folks, its only gonna get worse!

    • Prepply

      I don’t understand about the needing rain thing. Don’t we irrigate? (sorry I have no farming experience and was under the impression that we water our crops – kinda like everyone here in California has to water their lawns daily…)

      • 1madmomma

        No we don not irrigate farm ground here. I personally have never seen irrigation anywhere in Ohio.

        • Prepply

          Ok. I don’t know why I thought that! I guess being a non-grower I just assumed all conditions were controlled… (I mean it seems that even the genetics are manipulated… Sheesh.) Sorry. :D

          Hopefully things get more rainy soon and hopefully all other growings go well…

    Farmers complain every year: to much rain, not enough, too much, not enough….

    Of course we shouldn’t be growing so much corn anyway:
    Corn Syrup and all those corn based additives – bad – not good for you at all
    Feeding corn to cattle -bad – they should be eating grass.
    GMO – bad
    Monoculture – bad

    I don’t know how many things you have to do wrong before we realize it’s really our own fault.

    Keeping on voting for the guy who prop up big-agri and big-food and we’ll keep on being in this situation

    Why not use weather modification techniques to make it rain? It is well known that the technology exists to cause rain and control the weather. It is used by the government routinely, but the public is kept in the dark.

    Isn’t it time we all wake up and start demanding that our government work for us and not treat us like ignorant sheeple?

    Suggested reading for the days ahead:

    Deuteronomy chapter 28 (the entire chapter) but focus on Deuteronomy 28:16-18

    Leviticus chapter 26 (the entire chapter) – focus on Leviticus 26:20-21

    I suggest you heed what God is telling us through his Word. Abandon our evil, hedonistic, sinful ways as a nation, repent and turn back to Him.

    If we do not….well, worse things will come. MUCH worse things.

    I think we in the UK have stolen all your rain. This has got to be the worst summer weather in living memory here, cool, windy, dull and very wet. In fact we have too much water at the moment, flooding is common.. It’s disastrous. Please take your rain back. It’s just started raining again ….

    • GaryToo

      thats the interrupted gulf-stream for you. We will not turn around our pollution/economic growth worship so england will become alaska.

  • Cinderella Man

    I got to put this into perspective…. Today I heard from one of our truck drivers who is from Iowa that the corn crop is bust and they shut the ethanol plants down. This concerns me because we use the dried distiller grains to build our mineral supplements. 2. corn is in short supply this year. The price was hovering around $4.99 a bushel in early June and now when I checked the CME group its now around $7.30 a bushel. If the corn crop fails the skys the limit on corn. We could see 8 or 9 bucks easy. 3. this drought is devastating all food producers. From the ranchers including my Dad having no hay then they will have to deal with expensive feed in the fall and winter. Ranchers are already dumping record amounts of cattle right now and this will make the already small herd even smaller. Beef at the store is going to go outta this world!! Just get used to the fact that you might never have a cheeseburger of a steak ever again…This might put us out of business. The farmers here in Montana say the spring wheat crop is gone! This is going to be a nasty blow to my states economy. Soybean meal is already $500 bucks a ton. My co workers and I have never heard of this!!! Lets face it folks the dustbowl is back and the pain is going to be spread all around this year. Gerald Celente is right we will be handing out food as presents at Christmas this year!!

  • Yeriel

    Let’s don’t give up so quickly. Instead, let’s irrigate all the cornfields using the drip irrigation developed in Israel. If Israel can grow corn in hot dry weather, and they do, it can be done in the good old USA. Invest in the irrigation system and then let the weather do what it wants. You can probably find government assistance these days to pay for the drip system, so why wait? Get it done! Maybe you’ll have to write off this year’s crops but never again!!

  • Orange Jean

    I live in a little rented house on a 500-acre farm in rural Isle of Wight County, VA (just outside Smithfield). We are in the mid-Atlantic and got hit by that derecho storm, followed by a 2nd storm with lots of wind, hail and torrential downpours. We’ve had about 2 weeks of dangerously high heat (topping 100 degrees, often with 100% humidity)… and I thought for sure my garden was a goner (since I cannot tolerate the heat and humidity and wasn’t getting to water). But we’ve had enough rain, and now it’s cooled down a bit.

    Farmers in this area generally do monocrops (spring wheat, corn, soy are rotated but those who grow cotton usually do it year after year). Some melons, “you-pick-em” places with strawberries and blueberries and a few other odd things like 1 vineyard and a Christmas tree farm down the road from me. ALL seem to be doing A-OK; the farmer who leases the fields on the farm I live on grew wheat and got his harvest in the day before the derecho wind storm. Locally I see lots of fields with either soy or cotton (too short to be sure yet) that look green and lush and those who are growing corn, it’s tasseled out but I don’t know that it is premature – at this point the corn looks green and healthy to me.

    My little container garden; my tomatoes are thriving, as are my squash and cucs. The peppers seem stressed and are getting more bugs and my herbs too dried up… but I put those in pots that are maybe too small. We also have plenty of bees, birds, etc. So I’m not too worried at this point.

    We had these same conditions, last spring and summer, in Texas. Over 100 degrees for well over 60 days! The wind just blew and blew and stripped all of the top soil, then we had intense heat and no rain. my garden was a bitter failure, even though I watered. trees are still snapping in two though we’ve gotten some rain. praying for rain.

  • Kippercat

    Corn looks as it should in Omaha, NE. But we have had little rain recently, and not much in the forecast. We are watering our lawn daily, and it is still struggling from the heat stress. The sunlight feels strong, like it is carrying more energy or something.

    No mention of the fact that all the corn is GMO from the scumbags at Monsanto – to feed to cattle. Let it fail. We are all toast anyway. Take your pick, radiation from Fukushima (when SPF 4 goes, it’s an extinction event), WW3, environmental catastrophe, economic collapse – all at the same time. The American farmer sold out to Monsanto long ago, they deserve the Hell they have brought upon themselves. Good luck.

    the continental United States break its record for the hottest first six months
    in a calendar year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Monday.
    The last 12 months also have been the warmest since modern record-keeping began in 1895,
    narrowly beating the previous 12-month period that ended in May 2012.

    1936 (11 *7)=77 1936- 77 = 1859
    The 1936 North American heat wave was the most severe heat wave in the modern
    history of North America. It took place in the middle of the Great Depression
    and Dust Bowl of the 1930s, and caused catastrophic human suffering and an enormous
    economic toll. The death toll exceeded 5,000, and huge numbers of crops were destroyed
    by the heat and lack of moisture. Many state and city record high temperatures set during the 1936 heat wave still stand to this day. The heat wave followed one of the coldest winters on record.
    1859
    For instance, according to a Kansas history book from the turn of the century,
    drought destroyed what little vegetation the Kansas Territory had at the time.
    From June 1859 to November 1860, only a few showers fell to soak the earth.
    “It is estimated that in this awful time, 30,000 emigrants left the country west
    of Missouri, spreading the story of disaster,” the book stated.

    The solar superstorm of 1859 was the fiercest ever recorded. Auroras filled the
    sky as far south as the Caribbean, magnetic compasses went haywire and telegraph
    systems failed.
    The geomagnetic disturbances were strong enough that U.S. telegraph operators reported
    sparks leaping from their equipment—some bad enough to set fires, said Ed Cliver,
    a space physicist at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory in Bedford, Massachusetts.
    In 1859, such reports were mostly curiosities. But if something similar happened today,
    the world’s high-tech infrastructure could grind to a halt.

    Southern Illinois corn crop is terrible. Many fields will probably have zero yield. It is bad for farmers but I assume eveyone is aware that many farmers have federal crop insurance that guarantees them a set dollar amount per acre based on county averages.

  • JR

    I live in Aurora, IL. It has been very, very dry here; we are in the middle of the drought. However, two points: a.) corn grows on heat units, and the heat has been a good thing; b.) so far, as of July 10th, the corn is in fact green still. I cannot tell if it is stunted from lack of water, but the spring was normal, so there was a lot of ground moisture. As far as I can tell, this story appears to be hyperbole, at least from my vantage point. Things may get better, or get worse but that’s the report from my area at this time

  • BAC

    As our “betters” have been saying all along – this is due to global warming – sorry – the fact the earth is near the sun – sorry – climate change (phew! got there eventually)

    I’ve had to put an e-mail address in here – hi CIA? How is it going? Have not bombed Syria yet? Or Iran? – must be behind schedule…

  • HecatesMoon

    Missouri is requesting that it be declared an agricultural disaster zone. I saw one neighbor lost his little plot, but all the large fields look fine to me.

  • C

    This is gonna hurt, but in a good way. One farmer a friend talked with said he spends 2 million to make 100k profit in corn. The insurance companies can suck it up. I knew enough not to raise a family, or even take on debt, so I can absorb these increasing costs. Do I sound selfish?, when the best love you can find is so selfish it makes you just plain sick to your stomach, I don’t feel sorry for anyone or anything more. This is called life. Now, go cut down some more forests and make way for agriculture fields.

  • Snake Pliskin

    Ohhhhhh WELL Bring IT ON Got MTN house for years
    Me And the the family will be fine

    OH you mean you didnt prepare oh well your ignorent
    everthing will go on as normal. RIGHT foolish masses

    well, that puts a lot of gm corn dead

  • Josh

    ETHANOL PLANTS IN SOUTHEAST IOWA are facing financial failure. They have cut back or suspended production, because of the too-high price of corn, or absolute lack of corn. They have been trying to sell their stock; no one is buying. A mass crash of ethanol companies regionally (farmer-owned) is imminent.

  • James

    Maybe the drought is a blessing in disguise. If the big corporate farmers who call themselves, “Family Farms” go broke. This will be an opportunity for people who practice sustainable permaculture to buy land a little cheaper. The small family farms may come back.

    Persisting contrails. House Bill 2977 (Oct. 2001) read original draft of bill which attempted to ban use of “chemtrails” and “weather warfare”.

    HAARP technology

    US Air Force white paper on “Owning the Weather by 2025″

    What are those persisting contrails in the sky? Who is spraying the sky? Why?

    US Patent 5,003,186 and about 35 other patents describe this weather control method.

    It isn’t mother nature.

    • sunshine

      yeah, I think the manmade climate disasters via the geoengineering most likely causing the drought may be sure to cause hyperinflation with FOOD. Sure is funny how thungerhead clouds dissolve when those planes fly around..
      Sky high prices for food to come and won’t suprize me if the talking media heads are told to say it’s because of climate change/global warming/new ice age whatever they lable it any given day.
      oh, climate change, your fault dontcha know. It’s all that co2 ordinary people are filling the atmosphere with, those greenhouse gasses that plants suck up, thrive on and exchange for oxygen.
      Climate change causing famine! We MUST have a carbon tax to fix it. Pelosi will be shrieking you have to pass this so you can read it!
      Sure…the carbon tax .. now what would they use that for? To keep funding the geoengineering to manipulate the weather?.. at your expense!
      Odd that they keep extracting more and more $ from the people and I’ve yet to see results for the good of the country and the people.

    Much of the state of S.C. has had excessive, relentless heat and virtually no rain. July 9th, 10th and 11th we got rain. BUT, it is already too late for most of the crops

    Time to reread Wilhelm Reichs books on cloud-seeding. ie ” making” rain.
    They might be hard to find though seeing as most of his books were burned by the federal government in the 1950′s (shortly before being murdered! by the very same government)

  • gary Mahon

    Even as we had way too much rain last two yrs here, I felt that a drought was coming this year. When we only had three small snows, then the hottest March ever, it became clear. It is sad to see the dying corn in most fields, as i drive through farm country. I have never seen it this bad! Maybe, The Great On High, is trying to tell our peoples something. Maybe to humble and bring our nation back to common sense, and the One who gave us this great land, and His laws.

  • Sarah

    Maybe God is trying to rescue us from HFCS. This could be an answer to prayers for a safer food supply.

  • Petunia Skrebble

    Well, is it not coincidence that Haarp redirected the Jet STream at just the right time to cause the drought? The corn needed the moisture at this time, but if its GMO corn, well, better to die from starvation than ravaged organs by the GMO corn. Don’t ya think? Maybe too it gives us a chance to decide what we want to do about it with those terrorist bankers who are pulling the strings in Washington and using Haarp as a WMD on the American people, not including everyone else they are harming. Maybe its time to declare a war on terrorists? This time, lets get the name of the terrorists right. They are not muslim, they are satanists.

  • Jake

    Somebody is gong to make a lot of money.
    Small farmers will go bankrupt.
    Corporations will move in and buy the land up cheap.
    GMO crops will blanket north america.
    People will continue to be abused.

    We’re sending a Word from the Lord given to Julie in July 2008. It’s not pretty.

    “Blight and Blasting”

    “Take a message to America. Thus saith the Lord: I have cursed your blessings. I have poured out My wrath upon them and caused them to wither. I am bringing grief where you once had joy, and I am causing your mirth to cease.

    “For I have truly cursed, and no man can undo it. The things that were ordained for life and for good are now ordained for your destruction. The blessings I have given you will no longer bless. Instead, they will turn to your destruction and will bring you blight and blasting.

    “Weep for blessings that are no more, America. For you have seen the end of the blessings and you will now see the beginning of the time of the curse, says the Lord.”

    When Iowa sanctioned sodomite “marriages,” they only hastened the judgment of God.

      If I were Solomon, living in the U.S. circa 2012 AD, I’d add a few extra verses to Chapter 3 of Ecclesiastes:

      “A time to enjoy, and a time to party, and a time to spend wealth in excess.
      A time for nationwide talent, and a time for talent to be squandered.
      A time to mourn, and a time to be impoverished.
      A time of little hope under the sun.”

    I would take this time to prepare. If you wait on god I have a bad feeling you will go hungry and try to come into my house for food. That will likely not turn out well for you.

    Read through Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 in the Bible and you will begin to understand what is coming on both the U.S. and all the English-speaking Anglo-Saxons throughout the world. Destruction. Because we have forgotten God and His laws and are persisting in sin.

    Bull! The issue can be solved with water piping built to deliver water to crops. This method of water distribution has been done in third world countries. The problem is Americans wants the water FREE, from mother nature. They are not will to build water piping to keep crops going, they do not want the bill.
    Their using the same excuse for cattle and grass. Build the water piping to distribute water where needed.
