Blog note: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.
Worst grain harvest in 35 years due to unseasonable weather, Denmark
Posted by TW on October 02, 2018. Watchers.news.
An immense amount of rainfall followed by drought and hot weather has devastated Danish crops this season, making this year’s grain harvest the worst since at least 1983. If you take it crop for crop, it’s the worst harvest in maybe 100 years, one expert said.
“The principal explanation is the extended period of drought, lasting from when the crops were sown until they were harvested,” said Asbjørn Børsting, the head of Dafoko, an interest group within grain and feed.
Poor weather in the autumn of 2017, when there was a high amount of rainfall, is also partly to blame, said Troels Toft, section director at Seges, a research center for the agricultural sector.
“Autumn last year was tough, and lots of farmers sowed seeds in awful mud or were unable to sow them before winter,” Toft said.
This year’s grain yield of 6.5 million tonnes is the worst in 35 years, according to national statistics keeper Danmarks Statistik. But Børsting thinks the situation is even more dire now because of how grain is dispersed today, CPH Post Online reports.
The figure represents a ten million tonne or 35% reduction in comparison with 2017.”You can measure and compare using many methods, but if you take it crop for crop, it’s the worst harvest in maybe 100 years. It was extremely feeble,” Børsting said.Danish parliament last week approved an aid package of US$ 46.5 million for the sector.
