Since more people retire at 62 than any other age (because that’s the earliest they can tap into Social Security), let’s use that as a benchmark. If you’re an average, single middle income earner and retire at that age now, you’ll get $17,532 from Social Security next year.

Politicians say nothing, but US farmers are increasingly terrified by it – climate change

Saturday 08:05 GMT

Farmers around here are itching to go after that amber wave of soya beans, but there was that 5in rain a couple of weeks ago and then a 7in rain, and it drives even the retired guys batty.

Everyone knows it has been getting wetter and weirder, especially Dr Gene Takle, a Nobel prize-winning climate scientist at Iowa State University. Iowa has been getting soggier in spring and fall, with scary dry spells interspersed, and more humid at night by as much as a third since 1980.
