Even The Price Of Sex Is Set To Soar!

Price of condoms, tyres and rubber gloves to soar

The price of natural rubber has risen by 65 per cent in recent months after tapping across south-east Asia was disrupted by poor weather and flooding.

Prices have already tripled in the past two years and the heavy rainfall, which has affected collection and production, has further forced costs up and stocks down.

Major manufacturers are now warning that prices for their goods may have to rise to offset increased production costs.

Tyre companies including Bridge-Continental, Michelin and Goodyear have already been forced to pass on some of the rises to their customers and analysts believe further hikes will inevitably follow.

Condom retailers have reported rises of up to 20 per cent as the cost of the raw product continues to climb and rubber glove manufacturers have warned they are also seeing their margins squeezed.

While prices for natural rubber remain just short of their all-time high on exchanges around the world, demand did decrease during the financial crisis.

However with some economies beginning to climb out of recession, demand has started to improve once again.

Analysts have predicted further price rises in the coming months.

Job Jacob, senior economist at the Association of Natural Rubber Producing Countries, told the Financial Times, he expected conditions to worsen.

He said: “The concerns over natural rubber supply are likely to persist until the end of 2011.”

What makes me laugh is how they seem to blame all these prices rises on the weather (sugar, wheat, cotton etc), how long before they start blaming the price of oil on the weather?

You are absolutely correct - a 2 second cursory glance and a bit of background research reveals this is an ARTIFICIAL SHORTAGE created by rubber tapping countries giving tyre manufacturers an excuse to whack the prices up!

(Also done in conjunction with a temporary localised climate abberation in 2008-9)

Billions of acres of the World's Farmland have been bought (covertly) up by the World's Billionaires and deliberately taken out of cultivated production by over 80% to create food shortages and force prices thru the roof!

This is so they can blame their artificial food shortages on Climate Change and force you into their wholly owned GREEN MACHINE!

Millions of people are starving to death in poorer countries because of these satanic vultures!

Global Production Of Natural Rubber On The Decline 4/17/2009 - Production of natural rubber (NR) entered into a declining phase in all producing countries, according to estimates at the end of March 2009. Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, China and Sri Lanka accounted for around 94 percent of the global production of NR during 2008.

Total production in these seven countries is anticipated to decline by 2.2 percent in 2009, further to the 0.4 percent dip in 2008. In Thailand, the largest NR producing country accounting for about 33 percent of the global supply, production dropped by 13.9 percent during the first two months of 2009 on a year-over-year basis.

The Department of Agriculture of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives of Thailand anticipates the production during the year 2009 to be lower by 0.5 percent from 2008. Production in Indonesia is anticipated to decline during 2009 by 6.0 percent, in spite of the expected expansion in tappable area by 30,000 hectare, according to estimates of the Directorate of Perennial Crops, Ministry of Agriculture.

Being the second largest producing country accounting for around 29 percent of the global supply, this 6 percent decline would bring down the global supply by 165,000 metric tons. In Malaysia, where the production had declined by 10.7 percent during 2008, a further decline by 4.6 percent is anticipated for 2009. Estimates of the Malaysian Rubber Board reveal a 43.5 percent decline in output during January 2009 as compared to January 2008. Tapped area, which came down by 173,000 ha in 2008, is anticipated to come down further by 20,000 ha in 2009.

India has scaled down the production forecasts for 2009 in the backdrop of an unusually severe drought experienced during the first quarter of the year in the country's major rubber growing region. Production declined by 11.2 percent during the first quarter, according to the estimates of the Rubber Board of India. Production during the year 2009 is anticipated to decline by 2.7 percent to 857,000 metric tons. Although tapped area could marginally expand by 2,000 ha, average yield is anticipated to come down to 1,850 kg/ha in 2009 from 1,912 kg/ha in 2008.

Vietnam had witnessed a 1.8 percent decline in production during the first quarter of 2009, according to the Vietnam Rubber Association's estimates endorsed by the Vietnam Rubber Group.

The production during the year 2009 is anticipated to decline by 2.0 percent due to shrinkage in tappable area by 16,700 ha coupled with a decline in average yield to 1,661 kg/ha from 1,700 kg/ha in 2008. In China, although production is anticipated to increase by 13.7 percent in 2009, this is only a return to the normal production after the drastic fall in the previous year.

(HERE IT IS)

Production had fallen by 13.3 percent during 2008 due to an adverse climate. Even with this anticipated 13.7 percent increase, production would still be marginally lower than the pre-2008 level. The Rubber Research Institute under the China Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences in Hainan Province anticipates that the production would be 580,000 metrio tons in 2009 as compared to 510,000 metric tons in 2008 and 588,000 metric tons in 2007.

How many billions of acres exactly?

The are roughly 36.7 billion acres of land surface on the planet. Now a fair chunk of that is either desert, tundra, mountains, lakes, urban areas etc unsuitable for farming. According to the FAO there are potentially only 41.4 million square km available for arable use = 10.2 billion acres of useful arable land.

Now how many are you saying have been bought by the world's billionaires?
