As oil prices increase (somewhat irreversibly) the price of food in the West are going to go up- for the very simple reason that their farms and delivery system is so oil dependent.

If the food prices rise in the West, there will be more food exports to the West from the countries that produce food for cheaper. Because the Western countries typically have more purchasing power (for the moment), the prices of food are going to go up globally.

It is critical then that the countries that are import-dependent just because imports are cheap must focus on food production in their own countries. They are in for big trouble if they don’t manage that within next one-two years.

Book Meme

I got tagged on this long long time ago. I feel so terribly at loss when it comes to tags!

Anyway, the nearest book happened to be “Lost History.”

Following the instructions, I get to:

Working out the implications of a rotating Earth while demanding decisive observational proofs for Earth’s motion will become one of Islamic astronomy’s most heated controversies after the 13th century, reaching well into the Copernican period, and perhaps even feeding it.

Parallel debates will take place in Europe among intellectual theologians like the Frenchman Nicole d’Oresme and Jean Buriden. While Muslim astronimers will be open to the idea of a rotating Earth, they will refuse to believe so until much stronger evindence for it’s motion is available. Discussions of a moving Earth will spread farther into Europe, although there such issues continue to be firmly located within theological deliberations, whereas in the Islamic world the argument will be part of a purely scientific discourse.

There is some evidence to suggest that Copernicus will inherit these important astronomical questions from Arabic astronomy.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
2. Open the book to page 123
3. Find the 5th Sentence
4. Post the next 3 sentences
5. Tag 5 people.
