Preparing For A World Food Shortage

Preparing For A World Food Shortage | Weather And Disasters | Scoop.it

Is a world food shortage coming? Are you prepared to survive world food shortages by having enough staples on hand to last for several weeks?. Hoarding food in the face of shortages is almost always discouraged by governments since this practice drives up prices and accelerates shortages. When times are relatively good however, it’s not a bad idea to stock up on long lasting staples and canned goods. Some of the world’s major religions, such as Mormonism, encourage members to keep several months worth of emergency food supplies on hand. In these uncertain times such a practice of preparing for food shortages might not be a bad idea at all.

What Causes A Heat Wave

What Causes A Heat Wave | Weather And Disasters | Scoop.it
What Causes A Heat Wave

In the summer in warm climates, an area of high pressure with little or no rain or clouds, the air and ground easily heats to excess. A static high pressure area can impose a very persistent heat wave.
The position of the jet stream allows air on one side to be considerably warmer than the other side. Heat waves are far more common and more severe on the warm side and at times an unusual position of the jet stream places unusual warmth in an unusual place for hot weather, and imposes a heat wave. El Niño and La Niña (opposite reaction to El Niño) can severely disrupt the positions of the jet streams.

How To Survive Tornados Video | Weather And Disasters | Scoop.it
There aren’t many things in nature as pure a killer as a tornado. Destructive … unpredictable … incapable of listening to reason. All you can do, really, is get out of its way.

But there are smart ways to do that and not-so-smart ways. For instance, a lot of people think that when they see a funnel cloud heading their way, the smart thing to do is jump in the car and drive like a maniac. No, that’s the not-so-smart thing.
