Since the 1960's, the export of wheat by the US has varied considerably from year to year.

This from the USDA's Economic Research Service.

Since the early 1960s, U.S. wheat exports have fluctuated sharply. The trend was upward until 1981/82 (the international trade year for wheat is July-June), when exports reached a high of over 48 million metric tons, but then reversed, with exports falling to less than 23 million metric tons in 2002/03. The U.S. share of world wheat exports has fluctuated from a high of 50 percent in 1973/74 to 30-40 percent in 1982/83-95/96, and between 20-30 percent thereafter. Increased planting flexibility in U.S. farm legislation and low returns relative to competing crops has led to a decline in U.S. wheat area, limiting export potential.

Over the last decade, U.S. wheat exports have exceeded 30 million metric tons only twice. They peaked in 2007/08, when they reached 34 million metric tons, comprising 30 percent of world wheat exports. Although in 2007/08 marketing year, total world wheat trade grew by 4 million metric tons, U.S. wheat exports increased by almost 10 million metric tons over the previous year. This was the biggest year-on-year increase for the United States in 20 years

In August of last year, Russia stopped exporting wheat, because of the loss of their crop. If the US emerged last year as the biggest exporter of wheat, the absence of Russia from the world market could be the reason.

It apparently depends on who you choose to believe. I sure as hell don't trust NPR.

Yes, they routinely report false information (that could be easily verified or falsified...) so that it can be used in internet arguments against you, and you alone.

What HE chooses to believe is Socialist/Communist propaganda, anything that involves HATE AMERICA and an inner rage against conservative values.

He is a PIN HEAD

But the type of climate changes that happen in decades that normally happen over the period of thousands of years, or require major events (e.g., solar fluctuations or volcanoes), that ain't natural.

Napa: But the type of climate changes that happen in decades that normally happen over the period of thousands of years, or require major events (e.g., solar fluctuations or volcanoes), that ain't natural.

....First, how would you know it required thousands of years? We had a mini ice age around 1500 that created the 'glaciers' of Greenland (and in Europe), where the melting has revealed that Greenland was actually farmed prior.

....The fact is, hundreds, if not thousands of volcanoes are active under the oceans and specifically very active under the Arctic at this very moment, while they all release CO2.

....And finally, 0.0387% by volume of CO2 in our atmosphere, or .0387 of 1% is nothing, but required by all plant life that produces the food that feeds the world. Planting a few million fruit trees would reduce this very small CO2 level and feed even more people.

===============

Napa: But I guess that some old fogies, who have probably never taken a university-level science class, can be forgiven for not knowing what the hell they are talking about.

....Obviously, your major was not science.

===============

Owl: It is truly disturbing that the "know nothings" and naysayers have, or can even claim to deserve, a place at the table in any debate on scientific matters.

....And why are you chiming in? You barely made it through high school; if that.

================

Para: I think its time for the US and the other agricultural exporting nations to join in an international cartel to control the export and delivery of commodities, the ORGANIZATION OF FOOD EXPORTING COUNTRIES ("OFEX") and let the governing council start the spot price for wheat to be pegged at the floating price for a barrel of oil.

....Absolutely!

I only point at things to come. I haven't studied economics since high school but my elementary math tells me that if we divert .05% of our grain harvest to bio fuel we created a price increase of almost 100% so if we loose 20% of a harvest we can expect a price increase of 4000% . Currently we Canadians export our grains to starving people as well as sell it on the world market. Russia is our biggest competitor in world markets. When Russia held back their production and used it domestically we didn't have enough to feed the hungry and sell to the world. East has pointed out the outcome. Now imagine a world where all nations only produce their domestic need for an entire year? Then 50% of their need the next year? I'm not producing arguments just opening a possibility. There's a wonderful documentary that pops up on the history channel now and then that defines just how much cereals have controlled and continue to control our culture. I believed what was presented. I'm talkin NO Romans without cereal. No civilization without cereal.

As far as I know Al Gore lives near Santa Barbara CA now and it's not a small energy conserving home either.

Things could have been much worse.

Lest we forget that the Democrats chose this guy to be their leader and to be president.

God intervened in the 2000 elections or the Wooden Indian con artist would have been the Commander in Chief.

God intervened again in 2004 and saved us from the Democrat's next choice the fake, phony, fraud John Lurch Kerry and his crooked running mate ambulance chaser John Edwards (is he out of prison yet?)

Sadly, in 2008, God finally had to tell us we went to the well too many times and would have to suffer the fate of our own terrible choices and learn things the hard way ... the Democrats gave us the anointed one and God said if we are that hell bent on self destruction he could help no more.. Barack Hussein Obama.

Have we learned our lesson yet?

Apparently, God doesn't like America much.

Lesson learned.

Maybe "he" doesn't like it much since he was hi-jacked and stamped on it's currency...only to have the people of the supposed "Christian" nation put a higher value on the currency than on the beautiful earth he made.
