Ireland has entered an unprecedented heatwave.
Temperatures are up in the late 20s and reaching as high as 32C.
This spells bad news for farmers who have struggled over extreme weather conditions during recent years.
Silage for meat production is under stress, as are crops.
Farmers in the crop producing areas are reporting expected losses of up to 50%.
We should not be surprised.
The climate change model seems to be playing out much as was predicted.
Food production or lack of it, has historically been the force behind the fall of empires and civilisations.
Mother Earth has been stressed and stretched beyond endurance and we are beginning to experience the results of that.
I have made a video this morning in relation to my observations…
On another subject, I am not writing about my transition from my 100 Day juice Fast at the present.
I will write about this in the coming weeks, but feel the need to just get into it and get on with it for the time being.
This website has been rather sparse of late and it’s my intention to write more and post more on here.
So, for the time that’s in it, Facebook will be on hold.
