For many months and years, contributors to Beforeitsnews and other alternative news websites have been warning readers to prepare for catastrophe. Now, in CNN’s lead story of today, Labor Day 2012, mainstream news is also finally sounding the alarm. 2013 is only 4 months away now; I hope that everyone has been following through. We are nearly out of time.
(CNN) – Prediction: 2013 will be a year of serious global crisis. That crisis is predictable, and in fact has already begun. It will inescapably confront the next president of the United States. Yet this emerging crisis got not a mention at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. We’ll see if the Democrats do better.
The crisis originates in this summer’s extreme weather. Almost 80% of the continental United States experienced drought conditions. Russia and Australia experienced drought as well.
Will 2013 bring us social turmoil in Brazil, strikes in China or revolution in Pakistan? The answer can probably be read in the price indexes of the commodities exchanges — and it is anything but reassuring.
