Thread Name: BS: Global Rice Crisis
Subject: RE: BS: Global Rice Crisis
Mis-use of land for biofuels instead of food, increasing populations, use of products from food crops for everything one can name, drought and changing climates, the gambling by investors on the commodity market, distribution patterns, etc.-the CBC article is an overview of the many sources of the problem, but incomplete.

Thousands plus may starve before governments work toward a more rational system of production and supply.

Governments and people in general never plan ahead, hence carom from crisis to crisis. What, me worry?
