20 Signs That A Horrific Global Food Crisis Is Coming

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

In case you haven’t noticed, the world is on the verge of a horrific global food crisis.  At some point, this crisis will affect you and your family.  It may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow, but it is going to happen.  Crazy weather and horrifying natural disasters have played havoc with agricultural production in many areas of the globe over the past couple of years.  Meanwhile, the price of oil has begun to skyrocket.  The entire global economy is predicated on the ability to use massive amounts of inexpensive oil to cheaply produce food and other goods and transport them over vast distances.  Without cheap oil the whole game changes.  Topsoil is being depleted at a staggering rate and key aquifers all over the world are being drained at an alarming pace.  Global food prices are already at an all-time high and they continue to move up aggressively.  So what is going to happen to our world when hundreds of millions more people cannot afford to feed themselves?

Most Americans are so accustomed to supermarkets that are absolutely packed to the gills with massive amounts of really inexpensive food that they cannot even imagine that life could be any other way.  Unfortunately, that era is ending.

There are all kinds of indications that we are now entering a time when there will not be nearly enough food for everyone in the world.  As competition for food supplies increases, food prices are going to go up.  In fact, at some point they are going to go way up.

Let’s look at some of the key reasons why an increasing number of people believe that a massive food crisis is on the horizon.

The following are 20 signs that a horrific global food crisis is coming….

#1 According to the World Bank, 44 million people around the globe have been pushed into extreme poverty since last June because of rising food prices.

#2 The world is losing topsoil at an astounding rate.  In fact, according to Lester Brown, “one third of the world’s cropland is losing topsoil faster than new soil is forming through natural processes”.

#3 Due to U.S. ethanol subsidies, almost a third of all corn grown in the United States is now used for fuel.  This is putting a lot of stress on the price of corn.

#4 Due to a lack of water, some countries in the Middle East find themselves forced to almost totally rely on other nations for basic food staples.  For example, it is being projected that there will be no more wheat production in Saudi Arabia by the year 2012.

#5 Water tables all over the globe are being depleted at an alarming rate due to “overpumping”.  According to the World Bank, there are 130 million people in China and 175 million people in India that are being fed with grain with water that is being pumped out of aquifers faster than it can be replaced.  So what happens once all of that water is gone?

#6 In the United States, the systematic depletion of the Ogallala Aquifer could eventually turn “America’s Breadbasket” back into the “Dust Bowl”.

#7 Diseases such as UG99 wheat rust are wiping out increasingly large segments of the world food supply.

#8 The tsunami and subsequent nuclear crisis in Japan have rendered vast agricultural areas in that nation unusable.  In fact, there are many that believe that eventually a significant portion of northern Japan will be considered to be uninhabitable.  Not only that, many are now convinced that the Japanese economy, the third largest economy in the world, is likely to totally collapse as a result of all this.

#9 The price of oil may be the biggest factor on this list.  The way that we produce our food is very heavily dependent on oil.  The way that we transport our food is very heavily dependent on oil.  When you have skyrocketing oil prices, our entire food production system becomes much more expensive.  If the price of oil continues to stay high, we are going to see much higher food prices and some forms of food production will no longer make economic sense at all.

#10 At some point the world could experience a very serious fertilizer shortage.  According to scientists with the Global Phosphorus Research Initiative, the world is not going to have enough phosphorous to meet agricultural demand in just 30 to 40 years.

#11 Food inflation is already devastating many economies around the globe.  For example, India is dealing with an annual food inflation rate of 18 percent.

#12 According to the United Nations, the global price of food reached a new all-time high in February.

#13 According to the World Bank, the global price of food has risen 36% over the past 12 months.

#14 The commodity price of wheat has approximately doubled since last summer.

#15 The commodity price of corn has also about doubled since last summer.

#16 The commodity price of soybeans is up about 50% since last June.

#17 The commodity price of orange juice has doubled since 2009.

#18 There are about 3 billion people around the globe that live on the equivalent of 2 dollars a day or less and the world was already on the verge of economic disaster before this year even began.

#19 2011 has already been one of the craziest years since World War 2.  Revolutions have swept across the Middle East, the United States has gotten involved in the civil war in Libya, Europe is on the verge of a financial meltdown and the U.S. dollar is dying.  None of this is good news for global food production.

#20 There have been persistent rumors of shortages at some of the biggest suppliers of emergency food in the United States.  The following is an excerpt from a recent “special alert” posted on Raiders News Network….

Look around you. Read the headlines. See the largest factories of food, potassium iodide, and other emergency product manufacturers literally closing their online stores and putting up signs like those on Mountain House’s Official Website and Thyrosafe’s Factory Webpage that explain, due to overwhelming demand, they are shutting down sales for the time being and hope to reopen someday.

So what does all of this mean?

It means that time is short.

For years, many “doom and gloomers” have been yelling and screaming that a food crisis is coming.

Well, up to this point there hasn’t been much to get alarmed about.  Food prices have started to rise, but the truth is that our stores are still packed to the rafters will gigantic amounts of relatively cheap food.

However, you would have to be an idiot not to see the warning signs.  Just look at what happened in Japan after March 11th.  Store shelves were cleared out almost instantly.

It isn’t going to happen today, and it probably isn’t going to happen tomorrow, but at some point a major league food crisis is going to strike.

So what are you and your family going to do then?

You might want to start thinking about that.

  • This is why it’s so important to teach our children how to be self-reliant, which includes teaching them to grow food. A family garden is an absolute must, not just because of today’s growing food crisis, but so that our children will be prepared as adults in the uncertain future.

    • Unfortunately, in America, there have been laws in place for years upon years, (no doubt from like WWII) that you can’t “hoard” food and that the gov’t can commandeer it. Now there’s a law that either has been passed or is waiting approval that puts EXTREME regulations on what you can grow, whether or not you can use seed YOU’VE dried and kept or if you HAVE to buy “their” seeds. All kinds of things. For the home farmer & “homesteaders” that you can’t sell farm animals, not one step of the animal off their property for some odd reason. I’m sure there’s many who can give you more details that I can, but I did a college paper on homesteading, (leaving out the controversy – I’m wordy enough and we had a page limit, which of course I broke by half again!), and I kept running across these issues. Animals are numbered according to gov’t standards and are registered w/ the gov’t as such and then the gov’t can track that animal should you try and sell it, which for some reason you can’t. So, while your idea is awesome, the good ol’ US of A has forestalled such commonsense methods of providing for your family. And “hoarding” – so called – is so totally illegal that I’d be surprised to find an aware person who didn’t already know that. (Incl jars of food YOU “canned” yourself!) We’re about to go “off-grid” against our will, no job, no money, a pension so small that one needs a microscope to see it, all that good kind of stuff. Tent City here we come. Try and find one TP’sTB won’t come thru and confiscate illegally all our stuff and then the cops shred our tents w/ box cutters and such. YouTube/Google it, it’ll break your heart. *sigh*

      • The world is overpopulated by one billion people and the reason all these laws prohibiting growing of food is Government Agenda 21—if you haven’t studied up on this and it is clear that none of the commenters have then you are way behind—crawl back under your rock and wait for the sky to fall

      • AGENDA 21 gives you all the answers and you are so right to learn this stuff and share it now

  • TucsonKK

    Stock Up!!!!
    If you have indoor or outdoor animals stock up!!

    Toothpaste, razors, toothbrushes, soap & deodorants will great barter when.

  • Gary2

    Michael-you are correct. I can not believe how much food prices have risen in the last 6 months.

    Living in close proximity to the great lakes water is not an issue.

    • Gary2—the us owns very little of the Great Lakes today—-they sold it to Switzerland to bottle Nestle’s water—the only part the US owns is being shipped daily to China to pay off tiny parts of our debts to them—the members of Agenda 21 are buying up all our aquifers so there won’t be a need to grow food—soon and very soon the Us will not have water for the bloated population that we can no longer sustain

  • JC Vaughan

    May we all live in interesting times.

  • God Frequency

    You forgot about the food supply lost due to the Gulf oil disaster, the sugar cane crops in Australia, food supplies in Pakistan, and China, due to flooding. Crops wiped out by record cold in places like Georgia. Over fished oceans, the lost wheat crops in Russia. Mass animal die offs, the crops lost in Oregan. Mass fish deaths in Brazil. The record dry spell in Oklahoma Kansas, and Texas recreating another Dust Bowl.

    Then once it all breaks down, no one will be farming because they won’t be able to get fuel, and they won’t grow crops for the masses, because they won’t be getting paid to do so.

  • #3 is bullshit.

    This food vs. fuel myth or that making ethanol causes corn prices to go up is perpetrated by Big Oil in Big Lamestream media to kill the ethanol competition to gasoline, as was done during Prohibition when John D. Rockefeller sponsored the Women Christian Temperance Movement with $4 million in 1918 to try to buy CONgress and pass Prohibition.

    Why? Because Mr. Rockefeller was in the gasoline business in the cities and his main competitor were the thousands of farmers who made and sold ethanol to car users. Henry Ford’s original Model T was designed to run on alcohol, and later modified to run on both alcohol and gasoline at the flip of a switch on the dashboard.

    Today, one of the worst feedstock for making alcohol or ethanol is corn (only 250 gallons per acre) and it still doesn’t contribute to corn prices or take away from the food supply.

    The reason is pretty simple. To grow 1 lb of beef required 10 lb of corn, because cows cannot digest starch. But if you distill the corn, you get 3.3 lb of mash (leftovers comprised of proteins, minerals, vitamins, etc.) and if you feed that to the same cow, it grows 17% more weight. That is because the starch has been removed.

    During Prohibition, the IRS revenuers would go to county fairs and spy out the farmers with the fattest cows and fattest pigs, because those farmers were the ones moonshining and feeding their mash to their animals!

    Today, corn prices are manipulated by speculators and by Big Oil to destroy the ethanol industry. (for more info on the Big Myths of Big Oil) (to contact me if you care)

  • Wobbly-1

    Just tie rising food prices together with fuel costs and devaluation of the US dollar and most of us are finding out that we are not near as “well off” as we believe we are. Everything is going up except my paycheck. It will soon take more fiat dollars to buy necessities and fuel the car but I am not getting more dollars on my paycheck…..

  • James

    I am really amazed at the notion of the U.S. that it can feed the World, while at the same time grow crops for the production of Ethanol. All of this with really expensive fertilizers and fuel. This is unsustainable. As we grow all of these crops, we deplete the soil that could be used to grow healthy food for the U.S. and keep the food cheap. In order to prevent soil depletion, we will have to increasingly use expensive fertilizers that have natural gas as a component. Up until a few years ago, we were having shortages in the natural gas area. Now, we are using Fracking to release more of this gas, while at the same time rendering our underground water sources useless. The U.S. only produces corn, wheat, and soybeans to produce the bulk of our food either through the production of meat, or transformed into cereals or meal to be made into Frankenfoods. Very little of our food comes from fresh locally grown gardens that produce green vegetables and fruit. We need to go back to local farms that are operated by families. With the high unemployment that may never go away, we could send these people back to a more rural, agrarian way of life. This would be the new way of life for a lot of Americans that really have no chance of ever working in a job for employers. The Industrial Revolution is for all practical purposes, dead. Now we are experiencing conditions that should lead to a reverse Industrial Revolution where people migrate from the cities and factories back to an agrarian way of life. Agriculture can provide many jobs that don’t involve actual farm ownership or working on a farm. There are jobs that would support the farms such as agriculture mechanics, farm suppliers, local buyers that purchase the crops for local use, and provide resources for local food processors for use by the local peoples. Some areas may experience growth in farm implement manufacturing. As the fuel and energy resources wane, there will be more need for animal powered implements and animal breeding. The U.S. needs to get a reality check and realize that the “Good Ole Days” are going to change. The new “Good Ole Days” will include a new way of life that can be healthy, prosperous, and enjoyable.

    What surprises me most after reading this article is that people still think that the Bible is just a book of stories. If they would pick up the Bible and read they would find that what is described in the article above is exactly what God said would happen in the last days. I guess they aren’t just stories.

    Please listen to your heart and think about what is happening in this world and you will see that God is true and is trying to warn us that the time is close and are only hope for us is to confess that Jesus is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings and seek him as our

    What is going to happen when food prices soar and millions of Americans can no longer afford to feed themselves? All hell is going to break loose in The Banana Republic of America (the Third World basketcase that used to be the United States of America). Bob Marley had a song titled “Them Belly Full”; the lyrics were “Them belly full, but we hungry/A hungry man is an angry man.” Yes, a hungry man is an angry man, and a desperate man as well. Desperate people do desperate things, and if you think large urban centers like Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore and Philadelphia are rough now, just wait. When countless Americans are going hungry, the crime problem in BRA cities will reach epic proportions. And I’m talking violent crime: armed robberies, muggings in broad daylight, brutal home invasions, Mexico City-style kidnappings (por favor, que no mates a mi esposa—voy a darte todo el dinero, te lo prometo….yo te suplico, no la mates!).

    “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”– Gerald Celente

    Signore Celente is absolutely right. Things are going to get seriously nasty in this Third World horror movie that used to be the USA. If you have a gun, be sure to keep it in a safe, secure place because you’re going to need it. The uber-rich will have bodyguards in their gated communities; the rest of us will be left to defend ourselves when the hungry, the homeless, the destitute, the angry, the hopeless and the just plain desperate come a knockin’. Gun control? As the late great Irv Homer (a Libertarian talk show host from Philly) used to say, gun control is when someone breaks into your home and you control the trigger with your finger. Self-defense will be very important when the you-know-what hits the fan in the BRA.

    God help the rotting, decaying, collapsing empire known as The Banana Republic of America (formerly the USA).

    “Oh my, we’re all going to die, help us!”, etc..

    Um, yeah. You are going to die.
    God declared that way back in Genesis.
    But you can do something to help mankind in general.
    What that particular thing or things are, that’s up to you, and the circumstances you find yourself in.

    Save a dolphin. Help a friend. Drive someone to the hospital, if he/she is ill. Why? Because he/she doesn’t have a car, and can’t get there themselves alone. Call 911 if your neighbor’s house is on fire. We all have our part. Do yours.

    Don’t laugh. That same person you helped in the past, might be the person who called the fire department to save your life during that heart attack you’ll have 13 years from now.

    I think the world has seen many horrific food crises during it’s history. Humans have died of thirst and/or starvation since time immemorial. I would think this is particularly difficult to go through but this time as the world has a lot more people to feed and (eventually) only limited resouces to do it. With mass media we are also aware of global problems whilst in an older age we wouldn’t have known much of what was going on around the world other than in your little corner of it.

    We have no control over the mess this planet is in now, and yes it’s karma. We’ve overused and abused our resources so I guess it has to come back and bite us at some time.

    I live in the Lockyer Valley in Queensland, Australia and on Jan 10 this year we were clobbered by an “inland tsunami” that virtually destroyed our town. I know first hand what happens when TSHTF. No power or communication – we were isolated. When we could get out to shop people had been panic buying (mostly the people who were in no danger or had access to plentiful supplies already). By the time those in need got to the stores there wasn’t much left.

    We were lucky. We had supplies, fuel for the generator, it forced me to make my own bread which tasted great. I should have done it long I learned you need to keep a stock of essentials and a little store of food. Some candles were also useful. We were also lucky in the fact that we supply our own water. It made it a lot easier but I don’t think I’d like to be in a big city in this senario. Grow a few veggies, keep a few chooks and you won’t starve. If everyone could have this the problem would be a long way toward being solved. It’s like camping at home :o)

    watch for that instant karma now and keep safe :o)

    I have purchased a 1 year supply of long term storable food.

    I pray that that the United States will survive the coming crisis.

  • William

    One would think that the resources of America would be expended in the refinement and further development of ways to feed all American citizens at reasonable prices. But, that has not happened. Americans would rather have unnecessary wars of choice for the benefit of foreigners, like the unnecessary war of choice in Iraq. And, clearly the diversion of corn into ethanol has proven to be a bad idea.

    The republicans are paying farmers not to farm. It is not welfare when the money goes to white christians. Capitalists don’t care about people starcing if they can get another 2% yield.

    like morpheus’ reply; changes!, oh yes , step into a good cafe anywhere in europe or the coastal areas of america , and you will hear conversations , like you’ve never heard before
    except in eclectic circles, “word is out ” we can say !?,,, no more “progress ” just bad news from here to armagedon, meanwhile we are sitting on the threshold of the golden age, That is if we’d like to swing around and take some responsibility, which is far from certain
    just note this as an option , and run it by your brain, an amazing tool , when we truly put the proper information in!,
    there are aspects to all this which qualify as “mystical” , but we needn’t go there, in order to understand what this new wave of changes is about, and how we can thrive during such periods, there will be more on this later

    Be nice if the Middle East would use oil revenues to develop desalination plants and begin to irrigate. I don’t like alarmist messages unless they include positive solutions. You might want to think about that before you print this kind of garbage.

    You can only pump water if the pumps work. In undeveloped countries the pump is most likely operated by diesel or gasoline. Have 2 years of typhoons in the Philippines and the farmer is broke.

    the big myth is a shortage of oil we have enough oil to run the world for thousands of years it is self replenishing not from fossils peak oil book and making it look like it is the truth controled by big oil also enough natural gas in okla and texas alone to meet all our energy needs for thousands of years i know iworked there for big oil most wells are capped
    also the myth the ogila aquifer is going dry was shown up when a few years ago scientist showed it had unexpectedly almost completly refiled. the whole problem is the money powers create money out of thin air then buy everthing up with it. including driving up the price of all commodities ban all corporations and do away with the federal reserve is the only solutions

  • Faux Gary

    Duhhhh, uh, tax the rich and buy food for everyone.

  • DownWithLibs

    Food for thought:

    If the people who believe that God/Jesus are just figments of our imaginations are correct, then we loose nothing. We die and that’s just about it. Light fades and game over.


    What if us Christians are right. What if there is a God who created all in 6 days (and took the 7th off!), and he did see a bunch of numbskulls running loose on earth that wouldn’t know one of his laws from a hole in the ground. And, instead of grinding us to dust and starting over (like I would have), he sent his only son – Jesus – to be the last sacrifice so that the aforementioned numbskulls would have a fighting chance at a peaceful eternity in Heaven with him? What then for those who don’t believe and don’t accept his FREE gift? What happens when we die if the Christians are correct? Probably not the best time to find out that you were listening to the wrong voice – satan (Yes, he is trying to win souls too! Even boasted to God that he would) – and you miss your chance. Maybe the Bible that you dismiss so easily might be worth a little looksee? That is called free will. You can choose to read, see and believe or you can just sit back and make fun of those who do. It’s your choice. No one here is trying to shove our beliefs down your throats. Believe it or not, but we are trying to do the opposite. Inform you of your choices before it is too late because we care. And that is what they call being Christ-like!

  • mondobeyondo

    Go to your nearby McDonalds, and mention to the teenage cashier type person, that a global food crisis is imminent. Then wait for that “you are really a crazy idiot” stare.

    Do the same thing at the Walmart grocery aisle. You will get the same result.

    Gail B and Greg R: I agree, this planet can only sustain 2 billion there is only so much limited resources and livable land. Anyone that drives a car can see that we are over populated everywhere, and the ideal is one child or better yet, none per couple. Adopt a pet.

  • DMyers

    A global food crisis is inevitable. Mass starvation is the same. This has already played out on many fractal levels, this path to exhaustion of the environment. Plants, animals, all manner of life act this way, exploiting abundance until it is decimated, then suddenly collapsing from having slurped up their very own subsistence. Nomadic animals find a fertile location and move in with a celebration that lasts until the area is wiped out and cannot support the prey or crop any longer. What then? Go find another fertile spot and do the same to it.

    As it is sometimes expressed, “He ain’t gonna stop till he hits the wall.” This is another way of characterizing what I was saying above. Life expands until it hits a limit, a universal principle to which even the human form of life is subject.

    Through this gift of nature, fossil fuels, nature has ironically allowed us to push the limits. With a natural carrying capacity of two billion, the earth supports seven billion people. That’s how far we’ve pushed the limits. But the limits aren’t gone. They’re still pushing back, and they will prevail or may even snap back. There is a limit on how many humans the world can feed, and it isn’t necessarily the same as the one humans have computed using all available data.

    I can only imagine that people whose job is to draw water out of the big aquifers in the West have a little thought in the back of their minds every day: “Man it’s still coming out so we’re gonna keep pumping. But it’s gonna run out. You know it. My God, what the hell will happen when this runs out? It just can’t, can’t, can’t happen.” That’s the game. If I stop or slow down pumping because I want to preserve this resource for later generations, then some other guy will move in and pump up the part I left, in addition to his own.

    Truly, the nature we have not conquered is our own. We follow the path where our natural tendencies lead. We’re going to keep using until its all gone, and no rational intervention will change that.

    This is not pessimism. You can see them yourself, the phenomena mentioned above. If you fall off a tall building and land on the street, you will die. Is that pessimistic? The cause and effect in that situation do not lead to a happy ending. See it for what it is.

  • rafiq

    daVID ? use yer head and your common sense as ethanOl is a waste regardless of the bs you are being force fed–burning food for fuel goes waaaay beyond criminal and the production of this garbage wastes water and destroys the SEALS of your car’s engines,and reduces mileage as well. EPIC FAILURE.

  • M

    A food shortage is only an issue for about 6 weeks , then the population downsizes to the food available. Its not rocket science folks , there is going to be a massive die off .

  • John

    It is clear the Globalist’s do not want Biofuels. They are too easy to manufacture and result in De-centralized production, uncontrollable by the forces of evil. Hence the intense Anti-Biofuels propaganda. We do not need to ferment corn (almost all the Ethanol prduced in Kansas is made from Grain Sorghum but the media doesnt tell you that, do they?) to make alcohol. Anything with carbohydrates in it can be used, hence cellulosic feedstocks. Wake up! Examine the truth for yourself. Dont listen to the Globalist controlled media. Biofuels can help the U.S.

  • aarroozz

    @ImpeachRonPaul If you live in America you eat the best and cheapest food in the world. To appear somewhat informed you should learn a little about soil science. Land that is allowed to go fallow (no crop harvested)for a period of time has the ability to replenish the minerals and micro-nutrients that have been stripped after years of intense chemical based agriculture. This also allows natural occurring bacteria and microbes necessary for the breakdown of nutrients to be re-established. In turn this allows them to be utilized by the human body. Farm subsidies were lobbied for by the large corporate farms and they receive over 95% of these payments. The average farm wage for a family farmer is about $25,000 and is one of the most dangerous professions.
    Globalist not Americans place our politicians in office and they could care less if you are a Democrat or Republican. They are both responsible for what is happening in our country, and neither represent the people or respect the U.S. Constitution. We must carefully purge most of the politicians and the judges they appoint before we will ever experience prosperity.

  • Brian Gazeley

    Till now the real hardships of lacking energy and food have hit mainly the poorest people in Africa/Asia/Latin America but like a tsunami slowly but surely devastating shortages are now heading for Western shores. No longer a matter of if but when and the aftermath will be frightful. Indeed it will no doubt turn out to be everyone for him / herself although the Japanese ( non Christians ) have proved themselves an exception.

    What I do not understand are those Christians ( a relatively small part of humanity) who say one can only be saved through Jesus Christ. What about all humankind made up of many many different peoples equally devout in their own beliefs and equally good and compassionate in their own ways of life. One would suppose that a person who calls himself a Christian would recognize that all people on earth are Gods creatures whether they have chosen to follow the teaching of Christianity or not. Will Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus and also those who have never even heard of religion or don’t want anything to do with religion be refused so called salvation when humanity faces the colossal devastation that this article refers to.

  • Geoff Orchard

    The answer lies in the village. Local people growing local food to feed themselves and their neighbours with the least amount of additional input as possible. Anything else is ultimately unsustainable as one resource or another runs out. The idiots that think electric cars running on various variants of lithium batteries will save the world never seem to stop and ask where on earth will you find enough lithium for a billion cars. Or for that matter all the rare earths required to make the damned cars in the first place. Don’t mention everybody trying to charge their car batteries off the grid at 5:30 when they get home from work, just when a fair proportion of us are trying to warm up the house and cook tea.
    The (developed) world has to change but I have yet to see a natural leader with the capacity to lead the way out of the no exit valley we seem to have stumbled into.
    P.S. Thanks for the note about cows, corn, starch and mash. Should start off a good argument at Monday’s tea break.

  • Doe

    Add to all this the greed of the elite and you can see another important factor causing even more starvation and food shortages.
    Goldman Sachs came up with the idea of the commodity index fund, which really was a way for them to accumulate huge piles of cash for themselves…

  • CabotAR

    Now this is putting everything into perspective for all of us.

    Great article & well needed for a wak-up call for all of us to prepare with the rest of the people continue on in their ignorant lifestyle.

    Those who prepare will survive. That simple!

  • Very interesting and informative article!!! Was just informed by a close friend, not to plant a garden this year because of the radioactive fallout coming from Japan from the jet stream. Nano size particles mixing together with rain water sifting down to earth in the rain water. Several reports of dairy farmers in Ohio have found their milk taunted with radiation coming all the way from Japan. The best thing to do is too stock up on canned good of every variety and store enough to feed you and family for a year if possible!!! This web site will give you a lot of information:

    Food shortages…just great…one more thing sucking the people dry.

    My family is stocking up on a 12 month supply of basic necessities…ammo, food/seeds, clothing, cleaning supplies and HBA. We can’t afford to buy everything we will need for the next year. We are focusing on just the absolute necessities. We think it will keep the stress down considerably. We are also thinking it will free up needed cash for fuel and utilities. If we are frugal enough, we may even be able to buy other less essential items later…or just keep saving. Trying to buy local as much as possible.

  • Grow as much of your own food as you can.
    grow synergistically so that you aren’t dependent on outside inputs.

  • As has been stated, it is inevitable that the food shortage is coming. There are many mentions about it in the Bible. But we can take a clue from Joseph. He knew the famine was coming so he stored up enough food for seven years. I am not saying we have to save enough for that long, but it does make sense that we start getting a supply of extra food and water put back so when a disaster occurs we are prepared. There are a lot of people out there who think that nothing bad is ever going to happen and won’t prepare. So, maybe we need to save a little extra to help out our neighbors.

  • Dr. Prepper

    aren’t we all but frogs in a giant pot slowly being brought to a boil?

    Where is God’s hand in all of this? I guess we’ll know the answer when man’s dominion on this gift of the Earth has gone too far and the prophets return to collect the faithful.

    with enough time and power…modern corporate economic and political control will destroy this planet and make it uninhabitable even for the top 5% of the top 5% who enjoy the profits of controlling it all for themselves.

    We might think that God has failed us by allowing such selfish, destructive and profit-driven evil to succeed on God’s green acre….but isn’t it us who failed God for knowingly allowing it to have happened?

    The dice are cast, the time is short. It’s either time to get into that top 5% that run the world for the top 5% of the top 5%….or to buy your gear, get your training, plant your garden, and hunker down for the eventual shit storm that we or our children will have to face head-on.

    Were it not for this blog and YouTube I would have nowhere else to turn. If I ever bring up economic collapse or food shortage or inflation or food riots people look at me as if I have 3 heads.

    Collapse…what collapse?

  • James

    rafiq you are misinformed.
    First of all only the starch from corn is used to create ethanol. The rest of the food remains. So, if by “food” you mean corn syrup production, you are correct. Secondly, ethanol does not “destroy the seals of your car’s engine(sic)”. Ethanol only comes in contact with the fuel system and it is only used in 10-15% concentrations. In vehicles that are E85 compatable, there are no leaks. The mileage is reduced because ethanol and E85 has a lower heating value, but a higher octane rating. Engines with a higher mechanical compression ratio have a greater operating efficiency with E85. E10 blends will only reduce the mileage in a worst-case scenario by 2.5-3.5%. Most claims are based on gasonline/E85 vehicles which are not built to take advantage of E85. I have convertered an engine to burn E85 and built it to run on E85 or racing gasoline with a 12:1 compression ratio. The thermal efficiency of the engine is much greater than in a typical 9:1-10:1 gasoline engine. While there is a loss in fuel efficiency, the thermal efficiency of the engine (much more power per lbs of fuel burned) is much greater than with gasoline in the same engine. 500hp w/ E85, 325 w/ 91 octane gas; 11 mpg vs 14 mpg in a purpose built older vehicle restoration/modification. If you cannot speak from a standpoint of Science, Chemistry, Engineering or Agri-Science, STFU.

  • Don Levit

    I have a lot of respect for religion.
    I attend a Unitarian Universalist congregation on Sunday and Chabad on Saturday and Tuesday nights.
    UU believes there is wisdom in all religions,
    Chabad is a mystical orthodox Jewish denomination that believes only in the Old Testament, and does no interfaith dialogue.
    So I am getting what I think is a good balance.
    Judaism honors other religions, as long as they don’t use their religion to force people to believe or to do things.
    Personally, in my opinion, this idea of believing in Jesus Christ in order to go to heaven is the most selfish belief a person could have.
    Judaism, on the other hand, refers very little to an afterlife.
    Live a good life, do good deed, man needs a Regulator.
    But to hold up eternal life as the dessert is too tempting for rational people to make decisions regarding belief.
    For me, I’ve tried the Jesus bit. I almost went insane.
    For me, sanity is a given – eternity is not.
    I’ll side with sanity.
    God wants us to try to reach our potential for our good and His glory.

  • The Unicorn

    Theres an old saying” More pigs = more land.” Theres also the saying that “Nature leaves no void.” Again the BIG problem is the Goverment control freaks and their constant ability to make laws which counter anything which could benefit a substainable system.
    Take alcohol for example
    1)convert grain to alcohol
    2)feed distiller grain to animals or humans
    3)take waste from animals and add some corn stalks convert to CH4
    4)collect the CH4 methane and use as fuel to distill alcohol
    5)Spread waste onto land
    6)make engines designed for alcohol like a 30/1 compression ratio

    There you go food,fuel,and fertilizer plus there are other products that can be recovered in the process.

    One example I like to use is the DNR, if you have ever been fishing they usually have size limits like a fish must be so large to keep,well thats totally counter to the way nature works.Nature over produces young/small fish.The best way to set the law would be unlimited fish under a certain size but leave the Large breeders to repopulate.

    I could give example after example but I’m tired of writing and nobody cares anyways.

  • My friend Jack at always said, “The most dangerous revolutionary a government fears is the farmer.” I would also add the home gardner and canner (food preservation) to that statement. If you can grow your own food, you don’t need the government and the government always wants you to “need” them.

  • flubadub

    Leaders from China, Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa just finished up a nice little sitdown arriving at the conclusion that what is needed is an international reserve currency system. Not good news folks.

    If food inflation – inflation in general – is a problem now it will get a turbocharged boost into hyperdrive if the dollar loses its status as the world’s reserve currency.

    To impeachronpaul: Thats funny, the Patriot Act was extended (and will be continued) under Demoblicans. You’re right about Republicrats, you’re only half-asleep, and you need to wake up to
    the Demoblicans being every bit as bought and paid for as the Republicrats. Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich BOTH want to bring home the ENTIRE U.S. military. Not just from Iraq/Afghanistan, but from Germany, South Korea, Japan, etc. If you’re a manipulated auto-bot, then you’ll think thats “isolationist.” However, France and Germany don’t have soldiers all over the world, and they’re not isolationist. We can’t afford it anymore, anyway. The same type of manipulated minds think its bad for Bushwars but ok for Obamawars.

  • tawney

    Everyone needs to really think about taking care of themselves and those around them if possible. This country is going to hell headed for a depression besides a food shortage.Do everything you can to prepare.Start stocking food,growing gardens get a bunch of chickens,rabbits. Be sure to stock medicines and put together a really good medical box. IT’s NOT just about food…it’s going to be a depression other things will be needed besides food. look at different emergency list sites and start getting things together…if you cant all at once do as much as possible cut out other will be OK just do it.God Bless take care of your families and those you love if there is any left help the rest.

  • the coming world food crisis is no accident.
    it is being engineered by the global elite and organisations such as the un /world bank and imf to help bring in a world dictatorship government and enslave us all.
    carbon taxes etc are on there way and no-one really knows about it thats the biggest enemy and the fake global warming scam is only just starting to rear its very ugly head.
    if you want the real info on whats going on look up a guy called alan watt on the net
    check out his podcasts
    this guys the real deal, the world you are born into really isnt what you think it is!

  • It’s amazing how bad things are getting, and you have a lot of people that just don’t get it. It’s like their minds can only run on one track at one speed. Well as of now the grocery stores still have food. Sore what you eat and eat what you store has always been the smart strategy…

    We help Americans find jobs and prosperity in Asia. Visit for details.

  • Thanks for sharing… Very grim, but true facts… Not just the animals that we rely on for food, but the water shortage and impact it is going to have is also grave.

    Luckily we get a lot of rain where we are, so collecting barrels of rain water has been our fist step to getting prepared…

  • Paul

    Hey impeachRonPaul. What are you?… just another freeloader? Those programs that you consider a freedom have a cost and it is to the taxpayer. Those freedoms keep our taxes high so that they can be paid for. You are lucky I am not in office because I think Ron Paul is doing a good job but he is not recommending enough of those freedoms to be cut. JUST STOP THE SPENDING AND THEN MAYBE THERE CAN BE A BALANCED BUDGET OR EVEN A REDUCED DEFICIT.

  • Jasper

    The real problem is over weight americans. Look at all the fat out of shape housewives not to mention the pot belly couch potato husbands.
    Americans need a food shortage so they understand the value of food instead of consuming as much as possible. Have you ever noticed how much food americans throw away after a meal? Try going to a buffet and looking at all the fat people loading up on 5 plates of food they never finish. Food shortages will also prevent diabetis, save on health care cost and help people get back into shape.

    Seems to me that all these problems have happened in the last 2 1/2 years that Obama has been president. At least in the US. Now that the US is also considered poor, who is going to take care of the rest of the world? It’s planned by the democrats to make everyone dependent on the government. why I don’t know, but I also am preparing for hard times. I also have a small garden to help when it happens here. What happened in Japan made 2 companies shut down because we couldn’t get parts. That’s a tragedy!!! How could the greatest nation in the world fall to such levels. We don’t even produce enough products to take care of ourselves. Sad,sad, sad.

  • Obummer is just following his orders. The Elite are in control, and they’re calling ALL the shots. When everyone stops submitting to these illegal pat downs, being body scanned and actually thump someone skull, for touching their kids…this crap will stop! TSA skates by, saying “we’re doing our job!” Our Police can’t “feel us up” and get away with it, and the TSA is below them!! Those scanners were ready to go, months before the “underwear bomber” thing happened. The Patriot Act was all written up & ready to go years before 9/11….these sicko’s have it all scripted out, ready to dump it on us in advance.

  • Keep in mind: Everything that’s happening to the US was all done in Nazi Germany, too!!! Same script, different country!! Only difference is that the American people aren’t as passive as the German folks were, just blindly following orders to get onto the cattle cars. We’re all headed that way, if we don’t say “NO”….pull your heads outta the TV, and start reading history. You’ll see the resemblence.

    Now more than ever we need to get right with Jesus, so that we are prepared, He will take care of his rightous own ,..He always has, Jesus said to put his kingdom FIRST, then all these things will follow,..( clothing,FOOD,..DAILY NEEDS ). It probably wouldnt hurt to be wise and perhaps by packets of seeds,ie; vegatables, fruit, maybe a few extra tins of food to store away, when you do your food shop.Remember not to get too overly worried, Jesus say’s not to worry and to give our concerns to Him,…but we need a daily relationship with Him if we’re serious about our love for Him and therfore eternal life, because Jesus also said , not all who call Him ” Lord, Lord”, will enter heaven because the decisive question is whether they OBEY his father in heaven, ( do His will ….living an obediant, rightous life in Jesus,..taking up one’s cross and following Him each day ) then we can be SURE that HE will take care of us in our time of need. Praise the Lord !

  • PaulF

    My canned response to “impeachRonPaul”‘s canned idiocy and Christophobia:

    First of all, Churches control nothing in our society. Nothing – which is obvious.

    Secondly, Ron Paul is not a person who wants churches to control society. If you believe he has said or done anything remotely impeachable you are completely out of touch with reality.

    Unless, that is, that you think that teaching basic morality that is any way connected with the Judeo-Christian worldview is “enforcing religion” on people. Such a naive and illogical view fails to take into account several critical points:

    1) There is no such thing as “neutrality” when it comes to moral issues – it’s a matter of different sets of values. Such as those of materialistic atheism vs. [Judeo-Christian] theism. Your insistence that theism have no “effect” on law whatsoever is merely the imposition of an alternate philosophy/religion – atheism.

    2) One does not need religion at all to demonstrate the evil of the types of things you undoubtedly support such as homosexual “marriage” and abortion – one only needs the power of reason and natural law, which anyone can understand.

    3) All Western nations, including this one, have a long history of explicitly acknowledging God’s existence and basic morality. Look to our very Declaration of Independence for but one example, which speaks of our “Creator” and “truths” that are “self-evident”.

    You seem to be merely a confused person who thinks he has the right to enforce his atheist religion upon society. But Western society was built on the morals and philosophy of theism, not atheism.

    I think I’m going to save this response and post it here every time I see you repeating your (virtually always off-topic) idiocy.

  • DownWithLibs

    @ Don Levit:

    If you will recall in the Old Testament, it was the Jews who had trouble following the Laws that God gave them. So, He sent Jesus – a Jew – to be the last sacrifice. God actually made it EASIER for people to be saved by simply believing that this event occurred 2,000 years ago. He made it easy enough for anyone to get into Heaven. As far as this being a selfish ideal, I believe this to be the most selfless ideal ever. Just think, God loves us all enough to have sacrificed his ONLY son, whom he loved very much, just so us dirty, greedy, selfish humans could share in eternal happiness. To believe it is selfish to believe in this shows that you may need to dig back into your bible and find the truth. The bottom line, you can be as good as humanly possible but you will NEVER be able to match up to Gods perfect standards. Belief in Jesus gift is the only way.

    Now you said that you tried the “Jesus bit” and almost went insane. I would like to know what it was you were doing or what it was you belonged to to make you feel that way? I would really like to hear from you.

    P.S. – Just so you know, God hates religion too! It’s true. You will find a passage dealing with this topic in Judges. I feel that this may have to do with your “going insane”. Religion is man-made rules and laws that only serve to get between you and God. True Christianity is simply you, God/Jesus and the word (bible). You read, pray and listen. Yes, it is that simple. Just like accepting Christs sacrifice on the cross is all you need to get into heaven. 🙂

  • dodiligence

    Brian Gazeley this post is for you and any others that need some clarification on salvation. There truly is only one way. Jesus himself said “I am the door any that would try to come in any other way is a thief and a robber.” also ” I am the way, the truth, and the light”. You see we can not do enough good works or deeds to earn our way into heaven. God said “all our righteousness is as filthy rags” and “all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Jesus said “except a man be born again he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.” You see through Adam the fall of all mankind came into the world, we are born with a sin nature. We are spiritually dead. As it is written “through the first Adam all die, but through the second Adam (Jesus Christ) shall all be made alive. Now the only way to be made alive and born again, is to accept what Jesus has done for us and be filled with his spirit. Which means we no longer have that sin nature and we have Gods nature. As he said ” I will take away from them a stony heart and give them a heart of flesh, and I will write my laws in there hearts and in their minds.” and they “do by nature the things contained in the written law.” Jesus was perfect in every way, he loves us so much that he was made a curse for us that we could be made righteous. He took our place, he took all of our sins as his own, and imparted to us his righteousness. He was the only one worthy to do this and the only sacrifice God would accept for the sins of the world. Now you might ask why? why did it have to be this way? why didn’t God give everyone a heart after his own, God doesn’t want robots he doesn’t want people to love him because they are programmed to, he wants people to be with him because they choose to (free will). See living a Christian life is not about religion, it is about a relationship, as a father to his children. This world is full of religious people that will not enter in because they are not born again. and Jesus declares that he will tell them “depart from me I never knew you” do not let people that have professed christianity only to see their lives full of hypocrisy, bitterness and the like, discourage you. These things are not for us to judge whose and what they really are. All that we can do is look at whose and what we are. The bible says that we ought to judge ourselves. For every man shall give account for his or her own life. And yes we all our Gods creation but all are not his children. As Jesus said to some that were challenging him “you are of your father the devil and the works of your father you will do. We are saved by grace (Gods Riches at Christ Expense) through faith and that not of ourselves it is a Gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast. There is a lot to be understood and I am just giving you a few things for a little clarification and understanding. Crack open a bible and ask the Lord to help you see what you need to. And please make no mistake about this “EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS.
    side note:
    Food shall be so good cheap upon the earth that they shall think themselves to be in good case. Then of a sudden death and destruction will hit, sword and famine is determined and nothing will stop it.He that has ears to hear let him hear what the Spirit says. Gods people. fear not these things that are coming for God is our guide, and a guide to all those who will put their trust in him. Peace be to the children of God.

    There are many sheeple around that listen to the government. They keep getting it wrong and are against us. I would recommend listening to truth warriors that keep getting it right like I been listening to them and they called the stockmarket crash and economic collapse coming many years ago.

    Thank god for people reading this blog too. It is a blessing.

  • ian

    why is there no encouragement, for people owning residential blocks, to start planting vegitables, to,sell to retail outlets,to ease the global shortage . as you have garbage collection, a large lorry could collect, produce, and credit the home owner for the goods, ie what the owner does not consume he or she sells ! two birds with the one stone. mini farms, pensioners should be allowed to profit, to realise on the schemes full potential. open to all!!

  • jesusSaves

    mpeachRonPaul: it won’t play out exactly as you envision but you will have your wish when Jesus returns to take the Christians from this earth.

    Absolutely guarantee the remaining people will get everything down here; we as Christians are just passing through.

    Just live in the light of eternity and you won’t feel the need to stock up on food.

    • Michael

      So what happens if the economy collapses and the rapture is not as soon as you thought it was?

      Look, I am a Christian and I live in light of eternity.

      But if you don’t prepare (especially with all of the warnings we have been given) you are not being wise.

      If Noah had not built that boat, him and his family would have drowned with the rest of them.

      If Joseph had not prepared, his family and most of Egypt would have starved.

      You need to be prepared to stay and prepared to go. That way if your view of the end times is not as accurate as you think that it is you will still be okay.

      Don’t bet the safety and security of your family on your ability to forecast how Bible prophecy will play out.

      I have been studying Bible prophecy for decades and I am telling you that you should be making preparations.


      • John Whittle

        Micheal, you are absolutely right in what you say and I can endorse your interpretation of the scriptures because I am like minded. A few months ago, a preacher came and spoke about things going on in Israel which would never be revealed or broadcast by the media because they don’t want to apply ‘scare tactics’ to the world about biblical truths being fulfilled before our very eyes regarding Israel. Probably because they themselves refuse to acknowledge the truth of the Bible. This preacher stressed to us the importance of a famine coming soon and to be prepared, but also for those who put their trust in Almighty God, He will provide, because HE has promised and it is written. But this promise is ONLY for those who put the full trust in the LORD. Yes I believe that the rapture of the saints is imminent. I believe that soon all born-again believers who have stayed faithful to God will be taken up from this sin-sick world while Almighty God deals with it and it’s inhabitants most severely because of their refusal to accept His Son Christ Jesus the Messiah. (It is written).How do we know this will happen? God has spoken. End of debate! So, my dear brother, we must endure till the end and only the LORD Himself will make the way out which is the promise of Salvation to all who believe. To those reading this who are not saved….GET SAVED QUICKLY BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE. Put you whole trust in the one and only Saviour, who has the words of eternal life. His Name is JESUS.

  • Mootball

    Use your fiat currency now to “stock up” on needed things, follow your instinctual cravings to prepare for the future. We, as humans, have the necessary wiring to know when to “save” for these upcoming events, so use your intellectual facilities to do so! Proper preparation prevents piss-poor performance! Continue to educate those that will listen, it will pay off in building the community of people that you will want to be around, those that don’t listen, or who wish to neutralize your alarm, well, maybe let them find out on their own. Let them go. Be aware of those who will try and use and steal from you. Build your community. With trust.

  • Phyllis Poole

    There will be some hard times coming but God will intervene IF WE ASK.
    There will many more natural disasters – these are chastisements from God. We can’t just keep killing innocent, defenseless humans, fornicate, masturbate with each other -(gays and contraception) cheat, steal, lie etc.etc. and expect God to not intervene. The devil was given his time to take humanity and God’s church to ruin (from 1800’s to 1900’s). You can see the difference in how humanity lives from that time. All kinds of inventions, materialism, children without parents at home. Mafia taking over unions and political parties. AND the elite (masons) living in the Waldorf Astoria masterminding it all. Read book on some masons who have denounced the group. I know much more. Search 3 days darkness Fatima Pope Leo XIII for starters.

  • James

    Your high security, bogey man politics, arrogance and ignorance are at the heart of your current predicament. Only when you put down your arms and put away your religiosity will you begin to view the world as different and not as an extension of the good ‘ol USA. The world does not revolve around you. And it never has. But keep believing it does and you’ll see where you end up 50 years from now, perhaps sooner. I’m not a Muslim but if I were I’d be real angry with America these days. I’m simply amazed at the restraint that the Muslim world has had thus far. Do most Americans think that the US or Britain or Canada or any other country can fight the terrorists? Really? Really? C’mon. Do you actually trust your government, your military that much? This is all smoke and mirrors. Economics and diversions. None of it is about protecting America. Could a terrorist not put poison gas into a buildings ventilation system? Could they not poison water systems? Could they not set multiple forest fires? Could they not blow up a nuclear facility? I mean, really , if they wanna get ya, they’ll get ya. Just stop giving them reasons to get ya. Mind your own business. Plenty of countries around the world do great things to help other countries, all without military intervention. Amazing, the US is capable of it and the US does some amazing charity around the world, that is for sure, but the damage done by America around the world is more than anyone can fathom.

    If you only knew what the higher archiearchy (evil) are doing to eliminate their own kind. Firstly, google “gangstalking”, “”, the “Hidden Evil” search othe links it is horrifying, I have been a victim for four years and know the person that instigated my harassment. My case amateur developers where they prey on the elderly and woman on thier home that own properties. I was shocked to see that this inhumane behaviour was involving thousands of other people globally. I believe that their targeting baby boomers because there is no purpose to have us around any more, no work, no pensions? To eliminate the population to bring in the New World Order…….see for your self google and see what you find out. People need to know this…….also google ‘chemtrails’ my opinion from my experience God is real….I know where I would rather be is to be on Gods side rather that be at a dead end when this calamity hits. It doesn’t hurt to have Jesus in our life what have we got to lose??

      I am also a victim. Stay strong and it will pass. I know, I beat them. Show no fear and they will lose intrest. There is much help and support online if you seek it.

    Store up whole grains, salt, water, vegetable oil, etc. They’re fairly cheap right now. Put them in water proof and rodent-safe containers, like coffee cans. Write on them the name of the food and the date. Keep in cool & dark areas, even under tables, beds, in closets, etc. Then add some of your favorite foods to your storage.

  • Mama G

    Went to the store for groceries yesterday. I was going to buy some bacon for Sunday breakfast. It jumped from $3.98 to $4.88 in just a couple weeks. I know it is a little thing but yet, so very big. We don’t have to eat bacon, I know this. What happens when oatmeal (which we usually eat 6 days a week) goes to $5.00?

    I’m glad for the wake up call. I notice prices going up around me but this one price increase opened my eyes. Sunday breakfast is a “treat” breakfast. I realize it is going to affect my family more than I have previously realized.

  • dodiligence

    For all of you who believe in the “Rapture” please go back and study your bibles, just between you and the Lord, and ask him for understanding. This is a man-made doctrine to deceive people and has been used to lull God’s people to sleep. It is indeed a very comfortable thought that we as christians will not be here or see all of these things coming on this earth with our own eyes. But it simply is not the truth. Do you not realize that it is tribulation that separates the wheat from the tares, as he said “then shall it be known who are my chosen” But you may say what about 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 ? Indeed. Put that with 1 Corinthians 15:52 that that tells us it is the last trump. Go to Revelations 11:15-18 and read about the last trump. and remember what the Lord said in Matthew 24:4-35. He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Daniel 11:33-35. Psalms 91. There are those that are truly seeking God and are hid in the secret place as in Psalms 91 and those promises apply. There are those that really belong to him, but have not been giving it their all and they will be tried by fire to be purged and made white. But this one thing we as Gods’ children can be sure of. God will not forsake us. Regardless what we have to go through to get us where we need to be, and make us who we are supposed to be. He that began a good work in us will complete it. So when tribulation, persecution and worldly troubles arise, lets pull closer to him, and not let doubt and disbelief try to pull us away from him. Remember the parable of the sower. And read the faith chapter in the book of Hebrews chapter 11. What things they had to go through verse 36-38. They had to endure these things and we believe somehow we are a special generation that will not see any sorrows, contrary to what the Lord himself has told us. And Michael you are correct to prepare is Gods’ wisdom. Remember Proverbs: the ants gather their food in the summer. This is Wisdom.

    “many are now convinced”

    Who? And why? What reasons do they give?

    This is a good example of why you guys are blowing 90% smoke. Actual results from Japan are that it is much much less worse a problem than Chernobyl. Claims to the contrary are magical thinking. Japan is doing fine.

  • TK

    Michael and JesusSaves:

    I absolutely agree with Michael, and disagree with JesusSaves.

    Most people today do not pay attention to the fact that for the last 1800+ years Christians have believed that Jesus will return at the last day.

    If you read John chapter 6, and look for the term “at the last day” (it is in ch 6 four times!), you will find that the last day is in reference to the righteous dead being resurrected.

    Then if you read the famous and falsely advertised “pre-trib” rapture verse in 1st Thessalonians Ch 4 and verse 16, you find a very interesting phrase “the dead in Christ shall rise first”, meaning that before we are raptured, the dead in Christ shall rise first.

    There is only 1 logical conclusion that can be reached after reading these 2 passages.


    So, in conclusion, we will go through the tribulation. Please prepare and do not be deceived into believing that God will wisk us away before times get tough.

    • John Whittle

      And,when God pours out His wrath upon the nations, it will be horrendous. Hey, did you also read this:- ‘But God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain Salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ’ who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him’ I have it in writing and it’s right there in 1 Thessalonians 5: 9 – 10. That’s the good news for all who receive Chrust. Have you not read these wonderful words of truth? ”All flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer’ And, as I’m sure you are aware that ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God and became flesh and dwelt among us. Talking about Jesus being God. So TK, if Jesus is not the one who saves….who is? And if Jesus does NOT save…as you presume, then do tell us what the Bible means in Matthew chapter one verse 12 which specifically and categorically says:- ‘And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS for he shall SAVE people from their sins’ TK, you are in serious error when you disagree with the Jesus saves doctrinal truth. Put that right quickly old son and let God bless you for your obedience. JESUS SAVES….BELIEVE! There is no other Saviour TK. ONLY JESUS.

Be ready this is going to be a severe and the Japan example will repeat and that is the end of US.

    While saving foods, water and such, be sure you know the propper methods for storage. Otherwise you will find yourself with stale and rotten food and algea filled water. Know how to find outside water sources and purify it for drinking. As you do your shopping, purchase and learn about gardening and HEIRLOOM garden seeds. You will need some form of multi vitamin along with your stored foods to stave off malnutrition and such (don’t forget medications, masks and gloves). You can grow your own fresh foods indoors, but to keep this up, you must have HEIRLOOM varieties so you can save seeds for future plantings. Learn about humanure, waste disposal, first aid, personal protection/self defense, how to homestead, etc. I am a Christian 100%…. After the great flood, GOD said he would NOT destroy the earth again because of man, but that he would not stop man from destroying himself. I know there is a major food shortage beginning, we brought this on ourselves. There are going to be many MANY people wanting what others have. There are going to be riots, home invasions and personal attacks on a scale you can’t even imagine. Disease is going to increase with the rise in starvation. Be prepared to deal with that as well. A food shortage is only going to be the beginning. Simply gathering food and hoping for the best in 6 months to a year is NOT going to cut it. You BETTER figure out how to be self sustaining after your stored up goods are gone and you BETTER learn NOW how to protect it, cache it in different places and keep it hidden from others. You BETTER learn how to protect whatever you will have. Who do you trust with your life? You don’t even want to tell THEM you are saving, storing, prepping, hording, whatever you want to call it. Because when someones child is starving…friendship goes right out the window. Its kill or be killed for that last bag of rice. Winner takes the last bite of beans. Search online for sites about prepping. You can lurk and learn…BE PREPARED, because if you think you can just wait and take what John Q Public has saved…you will end up with a bullet in you or worse…do you want to leave your spouse or children starving and unprotected? USE YOUR BRAINS!!!

  • theRichStoleAmerica

    Yet Republicans keep paying lazy red state farmers not to farm!

  • Interesting comments. I fully believe there will be food shortages and am preparing. For the Christians reading this remember when Jesus said that “if the goodman had known when the intruder was coming he would have stayed home to protect his house” paraphrased… well YOU have all been warned and need to make preparations. store up food now. The article says that companies are no longer taking orders for storable food. I purchase mine at and you can too.

      TO STORE WATER, SAVE A GALLON OF HILEX BLEACH AND USE ONE SHOTGLASS TO A FIVE GALLON JUG OF FRESH WATER AND CAP IT TIGHTLY. the bleach will not hurt you and keep the water from contamination. we learned this from the boyscouts of am, many years ago.

    They have been planning for this time since 1974 when the NSSM200 study came out , and it says they wanted full Population control by 2000 so they are 11 years behind schedule .

    So today we have our our father time of Eugenics and you can bet he here to see his Plan come to fruition . Read this Kissinger statement , , Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world. “Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.” , and you do know he was at Obama’s last state Dinner along with his Co Founder of the Trilateral Commission Think Tank on POPULATION SECURITY issues , Dr. Zbigniew Brezezinski , , , and was in the NYSE telling those guys in 2009 Obama is ready for the NEW WORLD ORDER ; ,
    You Know these guys are Not fooling around , they are the architects on how to roll up the Side walks of Freedom and we are seeing them activate the plan , read this it is a research firm from Canada that lays out the KISSINGER NSSM200 plan step by step pretty well ;

  • tommy Jim JIM

    This talks about the Trilateral Commission effect of the Plan for Population Control
    The Ideology that makes up the advisory list in the Whitehouse is clear with an Agenda , Obama Returns to End-of-Life Plan That Caused Stir , when you read the quote next and this guy co-wrote the Obamacare plan with CZAR John Holdren , you tell me Human LIFE is sanctimonious in these guys minds ??? Environmentalists are nothing more than today’s 21st Century Marxists , and they will sell human Life down the road for EARTH FIRST principles , this is a Debate we need to bring out into the OPEN , Google the word ” OVERPOPULATION ” to see the Technocratic societies debate going on that no One realizes is whats driving everything from the ideas about Climate change to seeing the progressive parties accepting Communism and Marxism .

    I have understood the population explosion intellectually for a long time. I came to understand it emotionally one stinking hot night in Delhi a couple of years ago… The temperature was well over 100, and the air was a haze of dust and smoke. The streets seemed alive with people. People eating, people washing, people sleeping. People visiting, arguing, and screaming. People thrusting their hands through the taxi window, begging. People defecating and urinating. People clinging to buses. People herding animals. People, people, people, people. —Paul Ehrlich , this is the Home Page to the Technocrats scientific explanations on PEAK EARTH

    The population bomb is still ticking 13 December 2009
    These guys wrote the stimulus bills and the direction those funds were to be implemented , and its basically went to Operate Government and Nothing to stimulate private sector capital Formation and expansion . Pauls argument with Agronomist Norman Borlaug is clearly one that needs future debate , .

    “The “Population Bomb” Echoes , , this is recent article just put out by the Co Author that advises Obama with John Holdren the Czars of our Century who are the architects of the War of attrition we are seeing emerge . These guys wrote the health care bill and all the Stimulus and OMNIBUS bills to fund these New Plans , and they directed the funding to their specific sectors of society to collect our society into the New World Order of Control and Domination over Resources and Our Independent access to them , all in the name of saving the Planet from Humanity , in their Mind its Gods work they are doing .

    This is the face of International Bolshevism

    with Food Inflation coming from a Future lack of adequate supply due to both World Population growth expected to rise and Farmland in the world reaching full development , the need for a Alternative Growth Facilities around the world are something Free Enterprise could rebuild the economy with and sustainablity at the same time Like This ; ?

    This is why we see the Rise of International Communism and Marxism in our Governments . We the People of the USA need to Consider what We do to Sustain our nations ability to provide OUR Vital HUMAN NEEDS First , in this face of Tyranny due to the threat of Global OVERPOPULATION , this is why we see the Kinds of Anti-Supply-side Policies coming out of Washington , The see no way too unleash the Free Enterprising Productivity to Remedy this situation thats Looming , they Instead are Going in Reserve like instead of Focusing on Expanding Supply they are Looking at ways to reduce the Demand on Supplies . Past historical events in Europe and Asia in the early part of the last century that saw massive human strife and conflicts were due to these same effects of supply-shortages of vital human needs , and it was alleviated after WW2 with the Massive Industrial Expansion of Technology that was the Enabling force in Supply-side resource expansion that was the salvation for World Peace .
    Look at the CZARS that advise Obama and read their writings . The US Society only consumes about a 1/3rd of the Food we produce so considering that we are trying to feed a World Population thats unsustainable is where the debate needs to be started so we the people can grasp this situation and get a handle on a Run Away Government thats drafting policies that are collapsing the Capitalist supply-side Free enterprising markets , and we the people are not being fully informed as to why Our Liberties are eroding away , all in the name of Collective Salvation , , of which we have Heard President Obama speak of in the youtube links , so whats he really mean by that is the debate we need to have and ask Does that Term fit with the Fundamental Transformation Obama spoke of in the 2008 campaign , and is it connected to this Global Food Security Threat ?? Is it just a repeat of the Past Efforts by the Bolsheviks era that consolidated Resources by convincing the Society that Government control over Production and allocation was the best way to remedy that struggling people were experience ? If we forget the past events we are destined to Repeat their mistakes !!!! These Links explains a great deal of what Collective Salvation is ,

    And Why Do we Americans have to be subject to Losing our Liberties and abilities too Prosper while we Build and Expand supply for the Future ?? Why can’t we Innovate our way forward to try and alter this Coming supply shortage ?? Is it because the Technocrats in the Bureaucracy don’t think there is any use ?? We need to be Heard on this so we can Apply Knowledge and sense to alter this Inflationary rise on our Vital Needs .
    There’s a ton of NEW Innovation that can alter this trend but we have to be able to with incentives driving prosper to inspire Great thinking that can evolve with innovative solutions for this challenge thats bearing down on US all .

    The simple fact is: You pray for the best and prepare for the worst. Notice I didn’t use the word “Hope”. What a wasted word. Hope is not going to do anything for you. Hope won’t grow the garden, or help you survive.
    We all may be batsh*t crazy, but then most Christians are considered to be crazy by atheists too. Even the Boy Scouts say to be prepared. It too, has Christian roots. So let’s learn from Aesop’s Fables and work and store for the “winter”.

    We Need to Increase production in the Current farmland of our cereal grain production because we are facing issues on 2 fronts , first we are facing problems with OVERPOPULATION in the world and second we have Reached a Flat lined rate of production in our Grain production over the past 10 years, , so what we need is production expansion in the Fresh Food veggies and fruits categories is where the Subsidies need to be shifted too for helping to form private investment capital around creating these Growing facilities like this ; . shift production too the Indoor growing facilities that produce a natural Fresh Veggie and Fruit Produce can help expand the overall food supply by allowing more farmland to grow creal grains rather than these Fruits and Veggie crops .

    We have to do something about this water shortage too , , and what can be done is projects like ; , and do projects like this only with desalination plant projects to feed the water to the Vertical Farms growing facilities and also extend the Pipeline to the edge of the Ogallala Aquifer and recharge the water in the Aqualier , all these can be great goals that your conversation this morning sparked in regards to the idea on shifting the role of Farm Subsidies use .
    And this Bio Algae as a alternative energy resource can be a great way to create and meet the needs of energy away from doing it with our Food Resources like Corn , so we can expand the overall supply of human vital needs and bring down the Cost of LIFE , this is the basis for how capitalist supply-side economics works .

    Prepare now for higher prices and potential financial crisis, with long term food storage, because you don’t want to compete at the grocery store when a crisis hits.

    Its only a horrific crisis if you are one of the starving. The big stick marked with the secret runes , translated as Local Carrying Capacity has been coming for a long time. Much to the grunting masses of the world surprise , you are not entitled to food grown on american soil. No matter how much make beleive money there is to exchange for it. Right soon its going to be real money for real food , or your hyperbreeding issues will be solved in 6 weeks or less via famine death.

  • I fully agree we are on the verge of a global and unending food crisis, but how you could make that list without including extreme, crop destroying weather events from climate change is a mystery to me.

    A lesser known but also devastating cause of crop yield reduction is toxic tropospheric ozone:

    Michael and TK spoke well – leading you to the Word of God, Who IS Jesus Christ.

    Take HEED to Jesus.

    When asked about these times, Jesus responded to His followers: “Take heed, lest any man deceive you…” Did you hear that? Take heed to whom? Take heed to Jesus; the Word of Almighty God! Else; YOU WILL BE DECEIVED.

    Where can you find Jesus Christ? In the Scriptures; for He is the Logos of God, and He is God, and He is with us who follow Him.

    A TRUE follower of Jesus Christ (there is only ONE CORRECT definition) is one who ABIDES IN HIS WORD.

    Jesus says (to them who are believing in Him) “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” TK has chosen to abide in His word, and she knows the truth, and she has not been deceived.

    You go and do likewise.

    I Am Michael A.

  • this article is correct about that people are in need, BUT using Japan as an example shows uss a little bit of how exacurate it is. I have most of my friends- and spend much of my time in- japan, and the crisis in Japan after the earthquake was not even close to as bad as people gotten the expression of –> newspapers need readers- that’s how it is. the strongest headline gets most readers. There has always been hunger in the world, but that’s not a reason to stop fighting it- or stock upp because we fear it.We should learn more about it, and how to handle it. that would make uss less scared, and able to help those who need it, instead off spending our time writing hysterical newaper articles about it.

  • LDC

    The approaching food crisis demands that the US government heed the warnings of Lyndon LaRouche and follow in the steps of Franklin Roosevelt. Shut out the speculators and fix food prices now.

    Finish them off; Cap food prices now

    • joe

      History has shown how well price fixing works. It either diverts all the fixed goods to whatever market doesn’t fix them (leading to massive shortages), or forces the goods to the underground markets (leading to massive shortages for many people), or drives the producers out of business because oil, labor, marketing costs are not fixed (also leading to massive, permanent, irrecoverable shortages)….

  • This is why I have 48 cans of beans + spagettios in my house. I have a feeling it will come sooner than we think.

    • Mai Ling Allen


      48 cans of beans – one can per day (if each can provides a minimum of 1200 calories – the minimum to support life long term) = 48 days of food.
      Do you think the crisis will be over in 48 days and you will be able to go back to fully stocked stores?

      If not – you will need a lot more. You need to prepare your food storage based on having at least a minimum amount of calories intake plus balanced vitamins and minerals or else you will die.

      Think about it.


  • B.Chandler

    inflation and food shortages at emergency shelters is not enough proof for your point. to me it seems you regurgitated a lot of opinions and speculation. did you talk to farmers? did you go and find out if there are people changing their lives and starting to farm in U.S. without using fossil fuels to do so? before you strike fear into the hearts of your readers with a bunch of speculation why not try going out and doing some research on the facts. you can come visit my small start-up farm out here in NC and i will give you some of my eggs so you will calm the F down.

  • BigPimpin

    50% of these comments are very poorly backed and have very littile to stand on. despite this the important points that the author puts forth can very heavily impact the futre stability of the world as a a whole.

  • Paul Felix Schott

    Lord i Pray that we stay One Nation Under GOD, and United that all should be Free. May we always have Patriots like Paul Revere. To tell us the wicked are coming to dig in our pocketbook.

    Our Government needs to Lower all taxes while we still have a United States of America.

    When this Old World starts getting you down. From Pollution the cost of OIL, Heating Fuel,The Fuel you put in your Vehicles, You Electric Bills from
    cooling air conditioners and lights not to speak of the Evil. The TAX that all Governments Federal, State, County and City put on everything they can thing of.

    They are supposed to serve us. Not put a burden on its people. That they are elected to serve all the people you, not their own Pocket Books.

    The Wicked keep putting higher taxes on everything. Making it a Heavy Burden on many that are already struggling just to put food on the table.

    Too many Americans have lost their home to the tax collector or to foreclosures from the unjust bankers greed. More are out of work and lost their homes then in the GREAT DEPRESSION, in the last ten years. All Americans and many Nations need good jobs and more of them. Not more TAXES AND WARS.

    All Taxes need to be lowered now while there is still time to save America.

    There is a Industry that will employ workers and is growing by more then 50% every year. There is a clear way for all up on the roof the Sun Light is free fuel from GOD. Some wicked in Government have been backing Coal, Oil, Gas and the Nuclear industries for too many years.

    These kickbacks to them were called Subsidizing Industry Technology. Most all Wise Men and smart Economist and Environmentalists call this padding their pockets and subsidizing back to the
    Stone Age.

    The best deal would be to lower Taxes for all this is not the Roman Empire or the Persian Empire.

    The Chinese Know Renewable Energy is a good thing. Most of the rest of the World is still a slave to Oil, Coal and Nuclear Power. All the Governments of the World now know it is wise to use Renewable Energy it is the Local Governments that are a little slow to learn what is best for all not just there pocket book.

    They fear people going off the grid all that tax money they will no longer be able to take from you. Wind and Solar Farms are growing all over the Earth. This could have happened years ago if the greedy wicked were stopped by the Real Good.

    The Freedom to get your own Power from the Wind and Sun, Solar Energy has been there for years. Are Libraries and Schools should have been the first to have gone Solar and Renewable Energy. And why are they not? Churches are all over the Planet. They are going to Solar Energy.

    Thank GOD for the Pioneers like John Schaeffer that Started Real Goods The first and Best catalog for Renewable Energy and Scientist Bill Young at the FSEC Florida Solar Energy Center and Monica D. Key Lindbergh for many years wrote to our legislators promoting Solar and Renewable Energy and many others.

    These Pioneers helped put Wind, Solar And Renewable Energy in the Spotlight for all the World to see.
    The Great Scientist Albert Einstein Stared it with a Dream that the day would come that all the World would use Solar Energy. His many years of work with the law of the Photoelectric Effect, and showing this to the World won him the Nobel Prize in Physics. We still do not teach this to our young.

    GOD Bless all that help tell this to the World

    All Taxes need to be lowered cut in half or there will be a lot more Poor and needy and not in just other countries. This 2012 year the World will see hunger like never before. More then 100 million will be sick from malnutrition going with out food. Taxing the poor and taking there Land away from them is Wicked. Very soon the Rich will become the Poor.

    If your Legislature will not lower Taxes vote them out of office and VOTE in someone that will Lower your Taxes. If your Son or Daughter was raised in a christian Home we need them in our Government as Leaders.

    United We Will Always Stand
    In GOD We Trust

    GOD Bless
    and May HE Guide you all.

    Many a Nation have fallen from taxing their people to Death. You want Prosperity and for thing to Flourish and grow lower all taxes. You want thriving, success, or good fortune for only a few, keep over taxing all.
    Solar, Wind and Renewable Energy Freedom from OIL. The Humanitarian thing to do. Solar Energy.
    Why let the Wicked in office in our Nation if they do not believe in GOD and the Bible vote them out of office.

  • I have also taken notice of these subtle signs that could indicate a potential food crisis. After seeing how stores are literally cleared out in hours after Hurricane Katrina, massive scale blizzards that leave gas stations without gas for over a week, and after seeing radiation scares from the Earthquake in Japan…. I noticed that iodine supplements were gone for nearly a month because of the potential radiation scare.

    This reality is very scary, and I’ve also watched some videos that mentioned some very interesting ideas when it comes to what it takes to survive during a Food crisis. I left the link to the video under my comment. The video is titled 42 THINGS THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE TO SURVIVE DURING A FOOD CRISIS.

  • Additionally, the government sponsored push for ethanol has caused major shortages in corn in the USA, and spikes in just about everything food related. What the average person doesn’t realize is that many of our everyday foods have a component of corn or corn syrup in them, thus when there is a shortage of corn, there is a spike in the price, and eventually a spike in other foods derived from corn.

  • mickielou

    And in this coming food crisis who is going to protect you when you have a nice garden and your neighbors are starving? If they can’t steal it – they will kill you and take it. You better also go buy an armed compound to grow all that food in!!!!

  • Mocha2007

    1. A lot of the information here is vague.
    2. They don’t cite any reliable sources, and the ones they do cite don’t significantly affect the topic.
    3. My personal thought: “More 2012 Crap? Here we go again.”
    4. People are paid to write articles like this by companies that sell “2012 disaster kits”, etc. So you buy them and they profit off of stupidity.

    You would be an idiot to believe that a food crisis is coming anywhere in the near future. Ever heard of gardening? It’s when you grow your own food. Look it up.

    • Ryan

      I got to say you are funny my friend

    • bbroome62

      Yep. The world has been coming to an end ever since man has been able to communicate.

  • alfred k. rockson

    so people now that we are seeing these signs, what are we going to do to combat this happening because live is important and must be preserve as Jesus Christ coming is back with prophecies, which some are yet to be fulfill.

    The problems that caused the last stockmarket crash of 2008 has not been corrected because the president said they are TOO BIG TO FAIL. and so the problem will re-occur again only this time worse than before, because the wolves are in the henhouse. My only question is………..if the muslims were to nuke wash DC would they be doing us a favor ? ?

    store water in glass water jugs with one shotglass full of hylex bleach to keep it pure and not contaminated for long times. YOU WON’T TASTE IT BUT IT KILLS BACTERIA. ALSO SAVE SPAM AND HAM IN TINS. SEEDS THAT ARE NOT HYBRIDS WILL BE VALUABLE AS MONEY. DEHYDRATED FOODS WILL KEEP IF SEALED IN AIRTIGHT CONTAINERS TO PREVENT MOLDS AND BUGS OUT. DON’T FORGET THE AMMO TOO. The rich have their yachts already packed and ready to go. new yachts now have helocopter pads on the decks for fast transport out of the cities. WATCH YOUR LARGE BOAT MAGS FOR PROOF OF THIS. ONE IS HMS. ANOTHER IS PMY.

  • Comforting to see some peoples are genuinely concerned enough to commit thought here and contribute as they are able. Thank You every one for sharing

  • We’re stocking up on the 1 year food supplies at They’re organic and good tasting without the preservatives lasting at least 15 years.

  • Suzan Rhodes

    Then there is Agent Orange Corn. Mansanto has recieved permission to create a gm corn that resist Dioxen. The most toxic Chemical created on foods GM by Monsnto. This is really bad and will poisen food everywhere.

  • Rob

    Invest in a fishing pole, hunting rifle, home protection weapons, ammo, bow and arrows, in the event you need to harvesy your own food. Learn what insects you can eat, etc. A book on edible plants, seeds, insects, etc could save your live. Never count on the Government. The Welfare bunch out there will be the first to die off because they have not learned to go it alone.

    • Pantomimer

      With the right seasoning, people can taste good too.

  • Shawn Treece

    Iodine supplements are great specially for those people who have thyroid issues. I wont prefer taking extra seafoods instead of iodine supplements. `*`..

    Take care

  • boyzie2

    many people think different things in what will or wont happen, but one day there has to be a food shortage we all know that because of how fast the population is growing at an alarming rate, so I think it is best to be prepared, so I think keeping water and food is a good point,

  • Job Bill

    You people are weird!!!!!!!!!

  • Albert8184

    The food crisis is being manufactured as a pretext to disguise deliberately engineered famines as a method of population control. The NWO does think there are too many people, after all, for the Earth to support. And I do agree to some extent. Human interference with nature, disguised as “modern health care” is throwing the population out of balance. Nature needs to be able to cull the herd, and we’re too obsessed with a fear of natural death.

  • Christian Olsen

    Look its four years later and no Kaboom.

    • bbroome62

      Oh stop spoiling everyone’s fear mongering.

  • jousty

    During the great depression a food shortage was taking the world by storm. People left the cities for the fields in search of food and work. If a government can’t feed it’s own people. For a leader it’s war or death. You can live without oil for thousands of years. Without food some say hours.

    The fitnessgram pacer test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds, line up at the start. The running starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal (beep). A single lap should be completed each minute after you hear this (other beep). Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.
