I'm pretty sure bacon is a continuing theme on Campfire. I would have posted this there, but they probably have me on ignore. Maybe someone here can x-post there.....

Of course this post is tongue in cheek for me, but I believe that we will see shortages of all kinds of food as climate change rears its ugly head. Man may be able to change where they grow food in the future, but you can't just change that scenario over night. There are bound to be shortages as we experience extremes in weather. Just look at the massive drought and extreme heat this summer. This will be a growing problem with an ever increasing world population.

Start Hoarding Now: A Global Bacon Shortage Is Coming
<snip>
The European Union reports that pig herds around the world are “declining at a significant rate.” And this could lead to a serious pork (and most crucially, bacon!) shortage — a problem that Britain’s National Pig Association chairman, Richard Longthorp, now warns is “unavoidable.”
