Is The Overpopulated Planet Heading For Severe Famine
The End Of Civilization Could Be At Hand
We like to say modern man conquered the famine. I remember the famines in Africa that prompted the Live Aid concert, and since then there have been no more famines.

Well we could find out very soon as a severe drought in Northern China and India is not too far away. Right now these areas are running out of ground water and that usually means food will soon follow.
