Having just recently filmed a new Tomorrow’s World telecast about the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” of Revelation 6, the prophetic equestrians have been on my mind a bit lately.
Into those thoughts comes this article from the Financial Post passed on by Mr. Davis: “Forget oil, the new global crisis is food”
Here’s the opening two paragraphs:
A new crisis is emerging, a global food catastrophe that will reach further and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen.

The times of famine and lack pictured by the third horseman of Revelation 6 are coming. Surely such lack has always been with us in various places and at various times, but not like it will be.
On the other side of that coin another article published the same day (January 7) and in the same e-paper gives me little hope for the hardiness Westerners will have to bring to bear in the coming difficult times. Apparently, the once-popular Dot It Yourself, or DIY, attitude is being replaced with a DIFM attitude: Do It For Me. For the sensitive out there, the title of the article may be a step too far in the “slang” direction (“The lazy… um… bottom nation”), but the material is still interesting reading. You can check it out here.
Hard times are even harder when they hit a nation full of soft people. (And I say this as a card-carrying member of “Softies Are Us”…)
