“If we have been living under conditions 200 years ago, there would be starvation in Norway the coming year.”
Email from reader in Norway
In northern Europa from June to September there has been unusual amount of precipitation. Our local newspaper told us that if all the rain had been coming down as snow, the snow height on the ground would have been 4,6 meter……
The grain harvest has been very bad this year, and so was it the two years before. The potato chips industries have problems with the quality and the volume of the harvest this autumn. The fields have been too wet for many farmers to use their machines.
This reminds me of the first 30 years of the 1300th century and the first 30 years of the 1800th century. It was cold and wet. If we have been living under conditions 200 years ago, there would be starvation in Norway the coming year.
What will this winter be? I do not know. It was blistering cold last winter, especially in December and January. Some stations in the southern part of Norway measured record low temperatures in December, in Agder and Hordaland, for 100 and 200 years.
According to my local wood seller, people have doubled their purchase this autumn. And so did I.
Thank you Robert for your efforts and your new website.
