CC: There is ultimately the question of how we got into discussing this. There are many countries that are among the top producers of food in the world who could be benefited by use of the French Republican Calendar, as that calendar tells you when plants will be in season in the Il-de-France region. Because France is North of the Tropic of Cancer, and most food producing nations are also in this happy arrangement, either due to latitude, or altitude, or both, the FRC is often valid in those countries as well. For example, it is valid in Iowa, where I live. Mikey seems to disagree with these basic statements. That is, of course, his problem. Obviously, the FRC does NOT apply in the Southern Hemisphere. That got us started on an argument of where most of the food is produced. I suggested the Northern Hemisphere, which is kind of obvious, I mean, there is more land there. Somehow Mikey disagrees. Well, that's his business. Now that we have established these basic things, can we move on? And obviously the industrialised world produces more than the unindustrialised world. That also stands to reason. And with the exception of Australia, New Zealand, and to a degree South Africa, the industrialised world is in the Northern Hemisphere. That also stands to reason. Mikey doesn't agree. Again, I think he just doesn't like admitting obvious things. But there you are.
