Shipping Shutdown: Exporters Warn of Global Food Trade Collapse

Author: iceagefarmer

Description: Global shipping has dropped off, and exporters are warning that refrigerated container (reefer) shortages pose major problems for food trade. Soil is even wetter than last year in US Midwest, presaging a difficult -- and potentially catastrophic -- 2020 season. UK is under water. China is shutdown. Australia reported record low crops. Grow food. Store it. Prepare for a limited collapse of our food system.
