Global food problems looming
"After reading about the droughts in two major agricultural countries, China and Argentina, I decided to research the extent other food producing nations were also experiencing droughts. This project ended up taking a lot longer than I thought. 2009 looks to be a humanitarian disaster around much of the world." The fires in Australia are due to a severe drought. I have checked the claims in this article, there really is widespread drought in the world's bread baskets.
