Not particularly. The cost of natural disasters as a percentage of global production is remarkably stable. We're mostly taking notice more because increased populations means the absolute number of people getting hit at once goes up, which makes for great television.
No it's bloody well NOT dependent on continued application. The yield loss is small enough that it's perfectly manageable if implemented sanely. Sweden decided to curtail antibiotic use over a decade ago.

No. I'm pretty sure being a happy Europhile would require quite a few more things. Just minor ones, really, like stopping the complete waste of money that is the monthly transfer to Strassbourg, the rampant corruption, the GENERAL waste of money, curbing their drive to make large numbers of rules on just about any subject... Maybe even toning down on shouting how good a job they're doing while everyone can see the results of said job, and not liking those results at all.
Though it might be that easy to be a happy europhile if you don't have to, you know, LIVE there.
Theoretically, QA as well as a large distribution network (which one no longer truly NEEDS for indie titles due to a nifty invention called the Internet ).
Of course, much like Microsoft themselves, the publisher wants their cut...
Living in the Netherlands, I did see the sheer idiocy of propaganda the last time they were willing to let us say anything about the EU. Whenever said EU is trying to increase its power - again - we're blitzed with a wide variety of warnings that if we don't do this, the sky will fall on us (or whatever the economic or political equivalent is at the time).
We could make it work so the bombs don't start flying again by NOT trying the exact same thing that has set it off every time before, namely trying to unite Europe under one rule. Though I suppose the bit where making that one rule a Common Enemy to everyone living in Europe is a new approach.
Sadly, I have to admit he IS just that stupid.
He's been busy trying to kill privacy while turning a dozen bureaucratic police corpses into a single grand paper mill with vast investigative powers and near-zero investigative ability. Percentage of crimes solved is historically low. Priority appears to be crimes that aren't (example: 440 man DAYS burned on a single 4Chan message of a schoolkid threatening to set his school on fire), as well as traffic violations (effectively turning the police into an extended tax collection agency).
Sadly, he's not going anywhere until the next elections.
This is an obviously needed utility for C programmer community, in order to gain some "friends" on ????book.
You don't have many friends, do you.

You know, it's that rather narrow view of life that has me convinced that we're not going to know we've discovered life until it declares war on us.
... You know, given what "under administration" MEANS (think Chapter 11 if you're American) making money WOULD HAVE BEEN important
In how many of the cases does someone getting shot count as accidental, anyway? I suspect the number of deaths caused by cars INTENTIONALLY is a lot lower than the number of deaths by gun.
Oh come on, the Depression started like half a year ago. Even my grandmother isn't that bad
