    The strongest El Nino in decades will mess with everything

    It has choked Singapore with smoke, triggered Pacific typhoons and left Vietnamese coffee growers staring nervously at dwindling reservoirs.

El Nino is back and in a big way.

    Winter is coming...and there'll be less on the menu in Russia
    There will be a bitter pill for the ordinary Russian consumer to swallow this winter and perhaps not that much else after Russia slapped a USD 9 billion ban on foreign foodstuffs. The well-worn Game of Thrones catchphrase sums up the barren table ahead for Russians, but Western producers will suffer too as a domino effect sweeps through the supply chain.
