Global Food Crisis goes into hyper-drive… thanks BP!
If you’re at all informed of current issues you’ve probably heard the phrase ‘global food crisis’ thrown around like global warming. What you probably haven’t heard or thought of for that matter, is the effect the gulf oil crisis could have on said ‘food crisis.’ Oil prices go up (per fears of regulatory sanctions, etc & because they can) + Seafood from anywhere north of Central America (aka - the entire Gulf of Mexico) becoming either toxic or obsolete all together = lots of livelihoods down the tubes = lots of increases in seafood prices in addition to the oil cost increases = accelerated Global Food Crisis. Welcome to twenty ten and beyond, get your boats ready for some rough seas folks.
