This is the last day of spring, or - in the new Global Warming reality - the end of the “First Summer”, the “Third Summer” will be here in three months. The traditional or “Second Summer” could just be shortened to “Hell”.
New farming methods may become necessary, -maple syrup production in Wisconsin was cut by 2/3 this year because winter ended so abruptly. A hard frost killed almost all the fruit crops across the midwest because everything bloomed a month too early. In this new reality it doesn’t matter that the mechanical corn planters spray a highly effective nano-particle insecticide on the seeds and this is now know conclusively to be killing all the honey bees. The bees aren’t really needed, they’re as obsolete as unionized teachers, firefighters and bridge inspectors.
Corn is self pollinating (no bees needed), and high-fructose corn syrup is “just like honey” if you don’t mind the one in three chance of diabetes, and the 100% chance of obesity. And people thought the plot of the movie Soylent Green was crazy. That movie revolved around the oceans dying (that can‘t happen of course), and the corporations who ran everything having a hard time feeding the unemployed masses.
High-fructose corn syrup had just been invented when Charlton Heston was doing his stint as a food inspector. In the real world they aren’t reducing the population by making people into food, they’re just making food that reduces the population directly.
