Peak food as modern agriculture fails

Peak food as modern agriculture fails

In the following video presentation, Christian Westbrook, also known as the Ice Age Farmer, talks about huge agricultural losses caused by severe weather and suggests that we are now hitting peak food.

"There will never be more food available at such low prices than right now," Cristian said, calling out peak food, right now.

His video presentation is just over 20 minutes. That's just about enough time to have your cup of tea or coffee while listening why he thinks we are hitting peak food, where do we go from here and what do we do about it.

It's interesting to see the influence of crop failures on food prices, and Christian's advice to grow your own food is always good, but he relates it to 'a grand solar minimum' which is, I'm sorry to say, just total hogwash, especially when he correlates the effects to previous solar minimums, which had entirely different factors playing their part, most completely unrelated to the Sun. This has already been researched extensively; That 'Maunder minimum' is not of importance, if we even reach its peak low, as a species. The main cause for crop failures is not solar radiance related, but pure extreme weather and climatic shift (biosphere collapse) related. Which is, in turn, mostly sourced in decreasing pole-equator temperature differences. Screwing up jet streams, screwing up weather, causing global energy displacement galore and changes so fast that no ecosystem can adapt in time. Thus far, the main source of all these problems are greenhouse gases and other pollutants emitted by humanity. I know humans prefer to omit that guilt trip, but it doesn't make the data go away. We have caused this, not the Sun, not natural cycles.
I'm also somewhat put off by his Ice Age Farmer nick. The only way an ice age would come about is by nuclear war. Not by a few volcanoes erupting. This too has been extensively researched already. And most importantly: The planet is not cooling. Not by a long shot.
