20 Facts About The Emerging Global Food Shortage That Should Chill You To The Core​

BY TYLER DURDEN
TUESDAY, APR 05, 2022 - 04:30 AM
Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

A very alarming global food shortage has already begun, and it is only going to get worse in the months ahead.

I realize that this is not good news, but I would encourage you to share the information in this article with everyone that you can. People deserve to understand what is happening, and they deserve an opportunity to get prepared. The pace at which things are changing around the globe right now is absolutely breathtaking, but most people assume that life will just continue to carry on as it normally does. Unfortunately, the truth is that a very real planetary emergency is developing right in front of our eyes.


The following are 20 facts about the emerging global food shortage that should chill you to the core…

#1 One of France’s most important government officials is telling us that we should brace ourselves for an “extremely serious” global food crisis…
France’s Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the EU must get to grips with the prospect that the war in Ukraine could prompt an “extremely serious” global food crisis.
#2 Joe Biden recently admitted that food shortages are “going to be real”, and his administration is now openly using the word “famine” to describe what is coming…
The Biden administration is worried Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will cause famine in parts of the world, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chair Cecilia Rouse told CNBC on Friday.
#3 It is being reported that food prices at German supermarkets will soon go up between 20 and 50 percent
Just days after Germany reported the highest inflation in generation (with February headline CPI soaring at a 7.6% annual pace and blowing away all expectations), giving locals a distinctly unpleasant deja vu feeling even before the Russian invasion of Ukraine broke what few supply chains remained and sent prices even higher into the stratosphere…
… on Monday, Germany will take one step toward a return of the dreaded Weimar hyperinflation, when according to the German Retail Association (HDE), consumers should prepare for another wave of price hikes for everyday goods and groceries with Reuters reporting that prices at German retail chains will explode between 20 and 50%
#4 Rationing has already begun in Spain
In Spain, the country started experiencing sporadic shortages of different products like eggs, milk and other dairy products almost immediately following the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. In early March, major supermarkets like Mercadona and Makro began rationing sunflower oil.
#5 Rationing has also already started in Greece
In Greece, at least four national supermarket chains have started rationing food products like flour and sunflower oil due to critically low supplies caused by the crippled supply chains coming out of Russia and Ukraine.
#6 The head of BlackRock is warning that this will be the very first time this generation “is going to go into a store and not be able to get what they want”
On Tuesday, BlackRock Inc. President Rob Kapito told an audience in Austin, Texas, hosted by the Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association, that an entire younger generation is quickly finding out what it means to suffer from shortages, according to Bloomberg.
“For the first time, this generation is going to go into a store and not be able to get what they want,” Kapito said. “And we have a very entitled generation that has never had to sacrifice.”
#7 Since this time last year, some fertilizer prices have gone up by as much as 300 percent.
#8 Many farmers in Africa will not be able to afford fertilizer at all this year, and it is being projected that this will reduce agricultural production by an amount capable of feeding “100 million people”
With prices tripling over the past 18 months, many farmers are considering whether to forgo purchases of fertilizers this year. That leaves a market long touted for its growth potential set to shrink by almost a third, according to Sebastian Nduva, program manager at researcher group AfricaFertilizer.Org.
That could potentially curb cereals output by 30 million tons, enough to feed 100 million people, he said.
#9 Russia is normally one of the biggest global exporters of fertilizer
Russia is a key global player in natural gas, a major input to fertilizer production. Higher gas prices, and supply cuts, will further drive fertilizer prices higher. Russia is one of the biggest exporters of the three major groups of fertilizers (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium). Physical supply cuts could further inflate fertilizer prices.
#10 In a typical year, Russia and Ukraine collectively account for approximately 30 percent of all global wheat exports.
#11 Half of Africa’s wheat imports usually come from either Russia or Ukraine.
#12 Other nations rely on wheat exports from Russia and Ukraine even more than Africa does
Armenia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Eritrea have imported virtually all of their wheat from Russia and Ukraine and must find new sources. But they are competing against much larger buyers, including Turkey, Egypt, Bangladesh and Iran, which have obtained more than 60 percent of their wheat from the two warring countries.
#13 One Russian official is warning that his nation may soon only export food to “friendly nations”
A Russian government official has threatened that Russia will limit its vital food exports to only nations it considers “friendly”.
Dmitry Medvedev, a senior Russian security official who previously served as the nation’s president, has threatened that Russia may soon cut off the West from food exports.
#14 On Friday, it was announced that another 5 million egg-laying chickens in Iowa would have to be put down because of the bird flu.
#15 The death toll from the bird flu in Iowa alone will be pushed beyond 13 million as a result of this latest incident.
#16 Overall, this is what the total national death toll from the bird flu currently looks like: “22 million egg-laying chickens, 1.8 million broiler chickens, 1.9 million pullet and other commercial chickens, and 1.9 million turkeys”.
#17 China’s agricultural minister has announced that the winter wheat harvest in China could be “the worst in history”.
#18 We are being warned that the winter wheat harvest in the United States will be “disastrous” due to severe drought.
#19 During a recent interview, one prominent U.S. farmer stated that most Americans won’t like it when “your grocery bill is up $1,000.00 a month”.
#20 The head of the UN World Food program says that what the planet is now facing is unlike anything that we have seen since World War II
“Ukraine has only compounded a catastrophe on top of a catastrophe,” said David M. Beasley, the executive director of the World Food Program, the United Nations agency that feeds 125 million people a day. “There is no precedent even close to this since World War II.”
We have been warned over and over again that this day was coming, and now it is here.

Like I said at the beginning of this article, I hope that you will share this information with as many people as possible, because this crisis really is going to affect every man, woman and child on the entire planet.

In my entire lifetime, I have never seen anything like this, and conditions are getting worse with each passing day.

A truly nightmarish global food crisis really is upon us, and hundreds of millions of innocent people are going to deeply suffer as a result.

It is finally here! Michael’s new book entitled “7 Year Apocalypse” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.

If #19 is true,
#20 The head of the UN World Food program says that what the planet is now facing is unlike anything that we have seen since World War II
...it'll be far worse than than anything seen since ww2.
The average American's grocery bill increasing by $1000/month would, in short order, add about 300% inflation on top of the inflation we've already seen since ww2.

No, we'll see food riots.

And IMHO, those will be more meaningful.

We may...MAY...also see a reversal of this invasion of the former Untied Skates. When things get violent, the Instant Democrats may instantly switch their loyalties back.

Of course, Mexico may instantly decide to fortify THEIR border, against OUR side.

Things will be getting interesting.

Gardening will make a big comeback.

Use politicians as fertilizer.

Or using EBT/Food Stamps.
.

What worries me is .gov just increasing food stamp levels as much as needed, so all the rest of us have to compete with the EBT crowd for supplies at the stores.

If #19 is true, that tells me there will still be food available. So, which is it?

It would be better if it was there and really expensive than if it weren’t there at all.

Does this mean we will start seeing "I did that!" Joe Biden stickers in grocery stores as well?


My wife has already been doing that in the meat section in our supermarket. :belly laugh:

Yes, cause in places like Commiefornia, we could still steal it and not have to worry about prosecution.

I've joked for years that I carry my emergency food supply around with me wherever I go.
When the shtf, you won't have to worry about anyone stealing your emergency food supply either. Lol

All of this BS is being inflicted upon us by the government. The US is a huge exporter of food. I haven't seen any announcements that we will stop exporting food to maintain our levels here in the US. When there's no food on the shelves maybe that will slow down immigration.

Could be the opposite. Healthy foods like veggies, fruit, meat, will be too expensive or not available so they'll eat the garbage food there'll still be plenty of.

Why not just order double of what they really want then?

Demolition of supply chains is pre-civil war sabotage against We the People


The United States of America is about to be plunged into a civil war. It will be ignited by the imminent Roe vs. Wade nullification decision by the US Supreme Court.

Once the Roe decision is rendered, the radical Left will erupt into full-blown domestic terrorism, launching unrestricted warfare against Christians, gun owners and conservatives. What's coming will make the 2020 BLM and Antifa riots look like child's play.

The sabotage of food facilities across the United States is deliberate. Similarly, the sabotage attacks, regulatory takedowns and cyber warfare assaults on energy infrastructure are also being carried out by the regime in order to deprive the people of fuel and transportation.

America's food and energy infrastructure is being disrupted with sabotage / blockade operations that are acts of war against the American people. This is almost identical to the way Lithuania is now running a railway blockade of Russia's access to Kaliningrad.


The Obama / Biden regime is using sabotage operations to shape the domestic battlefield in preparation for the coming civil war.
