Just wondering...

As Mother Nature reminds mankind just how puny his technological efforts are, one does wonder if the European airspace closure goes on for a while, like months or years, how will long term food supplies fare?

These days all consumers rely on just-in-time supermarket stocking, utterly reliant on air transport at many points. The days ahead will most likely affect this season's crop yields in Europe, making all affected countries ever more reliant on remote external sources of supply. Food that might be be normally moved by air transport.

Food for thought...
