... As energy resources like natural gas were curtailed the resulting price increase and subsequent shortage of fertilizer was discussed in great detail well in advance.

Now, we are starting to see exactly what those warning voices were talking about.

An interesting article in ZeroHedge Saturday... draws attention to how the media can no longer try to ignore the created global food crisis.

ZeroHedge - People on the other side of the planet are dropping dead from starvation right now, but most people don’t even realize that this is happening. Unfortunately, most people just assume that everything is fine and dandy. If you are one of those people that believe that everything is just wonderful, I would encourage you to pay close attention to the details that I am about to share with you. Global hunger is rapidly spreading, and that is because global food supplies have been getting tighter and tighter.

If current trends continue, we could potentially be facing a nightmare scenario before this calendar year is over. (read more)...

Factually, according to media reports on the region, the worst food crisis in history is happening – yet most U.S. and European Union media are avoiding it. The famine is happening in almost complete western silence....

Vladimir Putin’s military action against eastern Ukraine had nothing to do with the severe food shortages and inflation in Sri Lanka {link}. Nor did Russia have any influence over the Dutch government trying to stop food production {link}. Additionally, Putin had no control over Justin Trudeau’s decision to limit harvest yields by blocking the use of nitrogen-based fertilizer {link}....

You do not need to be a farmer to understand that nitrogen/phosphorus-based industrial fertilizer has been the reason why farm yields have generated massive amounts of food on a global basis....

Joe Biden, NATO, the G7, the European Union, the World Bank, USAID, and every western leader in the United States and Europe stated in early and mid 2022 there will be food shortages in 2023....

No action is being taken because they do not want to take action. No effort to avoid the crisis is being done, because they do not want the crisis avoided....


Sobering Realities: Quotations on Planet Earth in the 21st Century:

The green revolution has won a temporary success in man’s war against hunger and deprivation; it has given man a breathing space. If fully implemented, the revolution can provide sufficient food for sustenance during the next three decades. But the frightening power of human reproduction must also be curbed; otherwise the success of the green revolution will be ephemeral only.”
- Norman Borlaug, winner of 1970 Nobel Peace Prize

No one is addressing the elephant in the room - that is, unending population growth.

The root cause of food scarcity is the growing demand for food resulting from unending population growth. Modern agriculture is a stopgap measure to temporarily increase food supply, not a permanent license to increase population exponentially. (See Borlaug's statement above.)

The issues of unending physical growth, population growth, mass migration, and ecological sustainability are inextricably intertwined. Unending population growth is the root cause of environmental degradation. In developing countries, population growth is driven by high fertility. In developed, Western countries, population growth is driven by mass immigration.

No mater what the cause, every nation has not only the right, but the responsibility to control its population numbers. The consequences of not doing so will be increased environmental degradation and decreased agricultural production per capita in those nations.
