Can we turn on the water NOW!?

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation is warning of a food shortage, everything from soybeans, to sugar, to corn and wheat. You know, the staples. There is already a rice shortage. Raw cotton prices have nearly doubled. Knowing that these staples, such as corn and wheat are used in agricultural feed, this will cause the price of beef, pork, chicken and dairy to skyrocket.

It's may be rough ride in 2011.
