Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
hasn't yet named an agricultural secretary. I wonder if he knows how important this appointment might be?

Back when oil was over $100 USD, and I learned here from the ET community how the credit crisis affected food supplies, I checked out the FAO website and found that worldwide fertilizer usage is expected to drop significantly next year. Other than lower yield, I didn't realize it meant a lower protein crop as well. Thanks.

It's going to take me awhile to game out the just what ramifications of what all this could be. This credit mess just keeps getting worse and worse.
