When China Comes Calling:

When China Comes Calling:

The dust bowls that are a quarter the size of the USA,
Blow hard on the minds of the prescient,
The rise of the Yangtze River screams the death knell of temples,
As the peasants climb away from home,
The grain stocks are almost gone and crops are failing,
Oceans rise and push inland slowly,
Squeezed between hungry blowing Earth and drowning swamps,
The deserts, oceans, and river are coming,
But who's going to feed that nearly a billion,
When China comes calling?

The Earth Policy Institute's analysts believe that China's grain storage
will be completely depleted by 2004 - and that the huge country will
for the first time in history turn to grain exporters such as the USA for
food imports - In such quantities that US citizens will be competing
with Chinese import companies for food. At the same time, crop yields
worldwide are declining due to the advance of global warming. See the
