Brisbane faces floods clear-up of "post-war" proportions ~ link ~ Deadly floods in Australia's third-biggest city were peaking on Thursday below the levels Brisbane had feared, but the state premier said they would require a reconstruction effort of "post-war proportions." The floods have so far killed at least 17 people, left 43 missing and caused billions of dollars of damage in Queensland state. One central bank economist has warned that it could cut the GDP measure of national income by as much as 1 percent.
"The Brisbane river has now reached its peak," police said in a statement, as an official weather bureau flood gauge in the centre of the city of two million showed a depth of 4.45 metres.

The Disaster management Centre said that 180,151 people were living in 453 centres for the displaced set up in affected districts. The government has appealed to the public to donate essentials including dry rations, mattresses, bed sheets and drinking water.
Rapid Climate Change: Cold, Snow and Food Inflation ~ link ~
This summer Russia banned exports of wheat to ensure their nation's supply, which sparked complaints of protectionism. The U.S. agriculture community is already talking about rationing corn over ethanol mandates versus supply concerns. We've seen nothing yet in terms of food protectionism.
Global food shortages have forced emergency meetings at the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization where they claim "urgent action" is needed. They point to extreme weather as the main contributing factor to the growing food shortages. However, commodity speculation has also been targeted as one of the culprits.
It seems that the crisis would also present the perfect opportunity and the justification for the large GMO food companies to force their products into skeptical markets like in Europe and Japan, as recently leaked cables suggest. One thing is for sure; food shortages will likely continue to get worse and eventually become a full-scale global food crisis.
Here are seven reasons why food shortages are here to stay on a worldwide scale:

All Evidence Points To A Dramatic Increase In Food Prices Worldwide ~ link ~ For the last two weeks we have reported and researched the possibility of a food shortage due to a mixture of freezing temps, moves by our government that seem to hurt rather than help food prices, and hot, dry weather in the regions that haven’t froze.

Stirling
Soaring food prices and riots in places like Algeria offer Sarkozy ammunition to press for more coordination between G20 governments to combat wild swings in vital commodity prices as well as exchange rates versus the long-dominant U.S. dollar.

Violence Over Surging Food Prices In Algeria Spreads As Rioting Leaves Many Dead In Neighboring Tunisia ~ link ~ A week ago we noted that the first Fed 'excess liquidity' inspired violence of the year broke out in Algeria, where following the recent release of FAO data confirming food prices have just hit an all time high, rioting broke out "over rising food prices and chronic unemployment... with youths torching government buildings and shouting "Bring us Sugar!" To be expected, this event received no coverage in the US. In the meantime, the violence has escalated and spread to neighboring Tunisia, where weeks of clashes have left 14 dead. The reason for the lethal violence- "high unemployment and the surging cost of living." One would think that excess economic slack from pervasive unemployment would bring about a plunge in the cost of living... Unfortunately, that is not the case in a centrally planned world.
Australia floods deal new setback to wheat exports ~ link ~ Australia's wheat industry suffered a fresh setback from the country's floods disaster on Wednesday, with a key grain port shutting down overnight, further restricting exports.
The central Queensland coalfields and gas fields of south-western Queensland have been badly affected. The widespread disaster has brought a major part of the state's economy to a halt, said Warwick McKibbin, a member of the RBA’s policy board. "If you look at the infrastructure damage and all the networks that have been broken, a hit to the economy of 1 per cent is not out of the question," Mr McKibbin told Fairfax newspapers.
The floods in Queensland, which makes up one fifth of the country's economy, would in effect wipe about $13 billion from Australia's gross domestic product of $1.3 trillion.

Queensland floods to wipe 1% off GDP of Australia ~ link ~ Economists says the damage bill from the Queensland floods could be 1 per cent of gross domestic product or more than $10 billion thanks to lost export income.
Rising Food Prices Fueling Inflation ~ link ~ "If you break down the inflation numbers then the impact of food has been extremely significant," Will Shropshire, head of investor trading, product development and agriculturals for JP Morgan said in an interview with Reuters.
Shropshire said prices for agricultural commodities had risen to a level that "reflects the tightness of the balance sheets (of the commodities)." He added prices could rise further if markets are hit by any more supply concerns.
"If we have any more shocks to supply the impact could get increasingly dramatic," he said.
Shropshire is correct about the supply problem, but he neglects to point out the demand side contribution via the Federal Reserve printing money. What we have here is a perfect storm situation for much higher prices. It can't be hidden anymore by Nixonian indexes. The sophisticated traders who watch markets daily may not understand the theory, but they see the market activity in front of them.

Timeline of recent mysterious bird, fish deaths ~ link ~ (NaturalNews) The recent mysterious deaths of birds and fish are causing alarm among naturalists around the world. Birds are literally falling dead out of the sky, and fish are washing up dead on shores and rivers across North America and around the world. The reaction from the mainstream media seems strangely subdued, as if they're all just blowing this off as some unexplained quirk about the natural world that should be largely ignored.
NaturalNews readers think differently. We are concerned when thousands of dead birds fall out of the sky for no apparent reason. The sky itself may not be falling, but previously live animals are clearly falling out of it. If that's not enough reason to wonder what the heck is happening to our planet, then what is?
These are clear signs that something is wrong. Red flags from nature, if you will. Here's the timeline of recent deaths that have been reported:

If this happens, look for Israel to make sure that the missiles of its enemies are destroyed. Also look for this to trigger their use against Israel and for all hell to break loose. This could be the trigger for the coming General Middle East War, which itself will trigger the Third World War and Armageddon. Stirling
