What Global Warming Has Done To Our Crop Production And Comparison To World Population Growth!!!!!

Well, like most other things, the climate lunatics entirely and utterly fail to understand what progress is and does.  How we apply our energy and the near infinite resources this globe has.  There are two reasons why I crossed out the word “near”.  The globe’s resources are infinite 1) because of physics.  Humans can neither create nor destroy matter.  We can only change the properties.  And 2)  Humans are constantly finding new ways to change matter (and energy’s) properties.

The climate lunatics and the “overpopulation” zealots, (most often one in the same) completely fail to grasp these 2 truisms. 

So, we’re told the planet is warming and has been accelerating since about the 60s or so.  One of the many horrors predicted by the lunatics is that global warming will cause crop production to decrease.  FAOSTAT (a UN organization) keeps track of our global crop production.  They have many different ways to view this and many different categories, some of which are crossover categories.  Ensuring there is no double counting, there are nine categories which would total global crop production if summed.  Cereals, Roots and Tubers, Coarse Grain, Vegetables & Melons, Fruit excl Melons, Pulses, Fibre Crops Primary, Treenuts, and Jutes.  Typically, I don’t graph the bottom 4 because one can’t easily graph them with the top five crop production categories.  Today, I thought I’d show them both on separate graphs ….

With the exception of Jutes, everything seems to be going swimmingly!  Can someone please show me the crop production disruption caused by global warming?!?!?!?!?!?!

And, as a bonus, for the overpopulation dimwits …… here’s our total crop production in tonnes compared to the world’s population over the same time period. ….

We are producing more food per person in the world than any other time in history of this world.  World population is expected to peak around 2050 ……. assuming the lunatics allow civilization to continue.  It is the underdeveloped nations which contribute to population growth.  Developed societies have a near zero or some even under zero population growth.  In order to develop the 3rd world, we need (gasp!!!)  cheap and reliable fuel and energy. 

The depravity of the lunatics and their advocacy, combined with their intentional ignorance of basic facts remains unfathomable for me. 

As mentioned above, the source for the graphs is FAOSTAT.

    The best argument to use in talking with Greens about this is to point out that when states brought in legalized pot the state electricity usage rose significantly. About 1% of US electricity is now used to grow cannabis.

    Greens have a hard time criticising the pot industry, even though it is technically one of the worst in CO2 footprint that exists.

    So the message is this: to increase agricultural production even more, we just need desalinated seawater, energy and some nutrients, which if pressed we could extract from sea water and other sources also.

    Those people who say the world will starve due to climate change are right, sort of: its the actions of the warmists fixing a non-problem which is the danger. Maniacs turning us into totalitarian North Korea which has regular famines and megadeaths. Left to ourselves the rest of us will be able to feed the world quite well thank you.

      Heh! I hadn’t thought of the pot angle, but, it’s a good one!

      • Me says:

        Why do you think that the DEA used infrared cameras on hellicopters targeted at the roofs to spot these people, and if that isn’t enough they targeted their electriciry useage as being above normal, you know how they caught that guy that had an underground bunker grow op. Unless you are someone inportant you don’t get the treatement.

          Will all become much more difficult with LED lighting.

        • squid2112 says:

          DirkH, do LED’s provide the necessary electromagnetic frequencies necessary for good plant growth? Seems to me their frequency range is pretty limited, but this I do not know.

        • DirkH says:

          They don’t produce continuous spectrum but are available in enough colors to find one to drive photosynthesis.

        • cdquarles says:

          You only need blue and red light for plants (that’s why they’re green :P). Blue light is needed for photosynthesis and both blue and red light are used to regulate germination and seed production, provided nothing else is limiting.

          Interestingly enough, if you had the time and energy to find out which frequencies any particular family of plants like, you could greatly enhance their growth at the expense of others if the bands are narrow enough by using narrow band lighting.

        • Bruce of Newcastle says:

          Dirk – The heat is almost as important as the light. Pot plants like warmth.

          So even with LED’s the pot growers will need to heat their indoor hydroponic systems, plus add CO2. I suspect they won’t move to LED’s much because a combined light + heat system using incandescents will be ‘way cheaper than a split system with expensive LED’s.

        • DirkH says:

          MJ produces so large profits they already afford the weirdest things. Like digging in freight containers 3 stories high underground, connecting them with cut out holes and a ladder, und supplying the underground plantation with a Diesel generator hidden in some brush. That happened in England a few years back.

        • Bruce of Newcastle says:

          A neighbour of mine was caught growing once. I never noticed the black plastic behind the window drapes. The first I knew of it was when I woke up to this most amazingly powerful stink one Saturday morning. Phew! So I went outside and saw the NSW police had opened the front and back door of the neighbour’s house so the wind would air it out. Right in my direction. I didn’t see that neighbour again for quite a few months.

    Christian woman converts to Islam…marries Muslim…..her Christian family hunts them down and kills them
    ….no, wait!

    • DirkH says:

      Erasure of shame by killing those who brought the shame over you.
      Christians do not need to do that as our shame has been attached to Jesus Christ who died for it.
      Honor killings are pre-Messianic. Moslems live in pre-Messianic times.

      • Latitude says:

        Problem is, we are so naive we think we’re dealing with civilized people

        • DirkH says:

          Makes me think… The reason that Christianity was and is so strong in Northern Europe is that ancient tribal ethics here were COMPATIBLE with Jesus’ teachings. (Accept strangers into the tribe; check whether they obey the rules; not much importance to kinship but to collaboration)

          (And, these CHRISTIAN ethics are still obeyed even by our atheists and hobby satanists and communists. While they argue that it is their supreme intellect that makes them behave so, there is no logical foundation to it. Indeed they even try to become holier-than-thou by being even NICER to strangers, as if it were a competition in niceness)

          So very likely all that the missionaries had to do was get accepted into a tribe, tell them of Jesus’ life and teachings, and the Nordic tribes would have recognized Jesus as the biggest hero of all; the one with the HEIL (a mythical quality; the root of the word HEILIG == holy), and therefore would have agreed to become Christians.

      Dirk, every non-Muslim needs to read this…all the way through

      Ex-Muslim Imam Pens Open Letter, Giving Obama A History Lesson About Islam

      President Obama… I realize you thought you were brave and courageous when you defamed Christianity by equating the Crusades and the Inquisition with the present-day barbarism of Islam, but I wonder if your “courage” goes so far as to blame Muslims for the Islamic conquests? Do you have the guts to tell them that in the name of Allah, they invaded nations, practiced ethnic and cultural cleansing, going so far as to erase the very history of conquered lands. Can you tell them that they changed languages and names, enslaved millions and killed an unknowable number of innocent souls simply because they worshiped God, and not “Allah?”. I think not. You know Christians will bow their heads and pray for you whereas Muslims will simply take your head and celebrate.

      ISIS is not animated by the usual “reaction to oppression” narrative the Left trots out as an excuse for every instance of horrible behavior, whether that behavior is rioting in Ferguson, Missouri or the systematic slaughter of all those opposed to your ideology.

      ISIS is animated entirely by Islam. The manner in which they kill – prescribed and outlined in the Koran. The way they make war – prescribed and outlined in the Koran. The way they treat prisoners – also prescribed and outlined in the Koran.

      ISIS does nothing that Mohammed didn’t first do 14 centuries ago.

      You see, the problem isn’t a “radical interpretation of Islam,” the problem is the belief in Islam that Mohammed was the “perfect man,” and as such, worthy of emulation in all things.

      So the next time 200 factory workers will have to be fired it will not be announced by the CEO but by Comrade Charly.
      Looks like the Cali Marxists either don’t KNOW what Stalin had other people call him; or they miss him so much.
      Hope it passes. That would be so awesome. And, I hope Hollywood scripts will have to adhere to it. Will give a whole new level of hilarity to history films. King Louis XIV? Nah, Buddy Louis!

      That’s most unbelievably stupid! Wow!
