    Crops are going to be affected. We will pay higher prices, for food.

    We never had droughts before the invention of the Internal Combustion Engine.

    Not Once.

    Not ever.

    Droughts are a new invention, created by the GOP to bring despair amongst the flaming liberals....

    CHICAGO, July 20 (Reuters) - U.S. corn and soybeans rose to record highs on Friday, extending the biggest gains in 2-1/2 years, as scorching temperatures and a relentless drought baked crops in America's heartland, including top producing states Iowa and Illinois.

    Expected crop shortfalls and surging prices, with corn and soybean posting their fifth straight week of gains, prompted the United Nations agriculture agency to talk of a "serious situation" though not yet a food crisis.

    The new-crop contracts for each crop jumped 2 percent to contract highs at the Chicago Board of Trade, with the extreme drought conditions forecast to continue through early August, a time when soybeans are most vulnerable.

    "Everything today is focused on the weather for soybeans," said Karl Setzer, analyst at MaxYield Cooperative in West Bend, Iowa. "Historically, August is when the soy yield is determined, but because everything is early this year, we are seeing the buying interest show up earlier."

    Best I can tell it is most of the Red states that are affected by the drought

    How long before they realize that their blockage of Global Warming legislation is only making their lives worse?

    We Blue states have plenty of water

    s0n........you consistently display a level of naive that is beyond gone.............

    "Global Warming Legislation" hasnt been uterred on either side of the aisle for years now. The topic is radioactive on Capitol Hill........even John Kerry said it recently for Christsakes.


    Legislation is not happening because nobody gives a flying fuck......there are dozens of other legislation initiatives that people are more concerned about.


    Dude.....you have the political IQ of a small soap dish.
