YOUR supermarket trips could soon become a whole lot more expensive,
with prices on track to skyrocket across Australia.
AUSTRALIA is in the grip of a horror drought — and we could soon be
feeling the squeeze at the supermarket checkout.

At the moment, 98 per cent of NSW and almost two-thirds of Queensland
is either in drought or is drought affected, with farmers in parts of
Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia also suffering.

The situation has led to heartbreaking scenes across the country, with
many farmers forced to slaughter their animals or watch them die in
front of their eyes as they struggle to feed and water livestock.

Some farmers have described this crisis as the worse they’ve ever
seen, but experts have warned producers aren’t the only ones who could
feel the impact.

Richard Heath, executive director of agriculture research firm
Australian Farm Institute, said while “every drought was different”,
they generally led to grocery bills rising at double the rate of
inflation.

Australia’s drought crisis: This is how you can help

“Every drought is different depending on what time of the year it
starts and where it’s more severe, and that flows on to what food
types might be affected,” Mr Heath said.

“Drought is not a new feature of Australian agriculture and generally
what’s happened in the past is there has been in increase in grocery
prices overall … generally the price has increased at about twice the
rate of the consumer price inflation during equivalent periods of
drought in the past.

A warmer wetter climate, a longer growing
season and increased plant food (CO2) would
result in so much more food that prices
would tank, and that would be terrible.

Families might save anywhere from hundreds
to thousands of dollars each year, shaved
from their grocery bills, and nothing could
be more revolting to the hysterical "Global
Warming" freaks.

The same planet as Greenland...Planet Earth.....So when I referenced the climate record from Greenland Ice Core records... you tried to make fun of it by asking "Greenland is the global climate?"

(July 4, thread title "WHO Ever Said "Global Warming" Wasn't "Real"?)

Are you a two faced hypocrite ? ?

So I ask you... "Australia is the global climate? " Ha, ha, ha

Oh.. I forgot... that's right... 97% of all Climate Alarmists are hypocites..
