Throughout 2019 there has been a slow drip of stories related to problems with agriculture, farming production and the global food supply. Taken individually, these reports haven’t garnered much attention – they’ve flown innocuously under the radar.
However, if one stands back and looks at these stories collectively a clear (and disturbing) single storyline emerges. Michael Snyder calls it the biggest and most under-reported story of 2019.
Based on a multiplicity of data, TLB projects food shortages and soaring food costs in the latter part of this year going into 2020.
This will happen. Really it’s already begun. The only question is, how bad will it get?
A very large percentage of American farms this year have been negatively impacted by colder than average temperatures, the late arrival of Spring, and massive flooding. A great number of farms are well behind in terms of the crops that should have been planted by now and many farms have already determined that they will be unable to plant anything this year.
Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and even New England have all experienced temperatures that are either at or near record cold. This was due in large part to a stubborn weather pattern that saw the jet stream dip abnormally far south bringing cold air over the Pacific Northwest, the Great Plains and the Mid West.
Additionally, record snowfalls were recorded in portions of Michigan and Minnesota.
The melting of snow combined with additional heavy precipitation across the country resulted in historic and widespread flooding. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts called it the worst flooding in State history in terms of damage. At least 74 of 93 counties in Nebraska have declared a State of Emergency.
Millions of acres of farmland are affected by the floods. Millions of bushels of corn, wheat and soybeans have been destroyed. Many farmers will be financially unable to recover and will go out of business for good.
And because not all of the snow has melted yet issues with flooding may continue well into Summer.
Barges that would normally be carrying millions of tons of grain to market via the Mississippi River are unable to operate due to flooding. Many of the locks and bridges that closed in March have since re-opened, but the water is still too high for large boats to pass under many bridges. According to AP this situation may continue into June.
The combination of cold and wet has prevented farms from getting crops like corn, wheat, soybeans, oats, and sugar beets planted on time. Strange Sounds has done an excellent job covering and chronicling these events. According to them,
As of the end of April, corn planting was behind the 5-year average in all Midwest states.
By May 12, only 30 percent of the nation’s corn acreage had been planted, 36 points behind the 5-year average. The corn planting in Illinois as of May 12 was the slowest on record, dating back to 1979…
The floods have not just affected crops. A large number of livestock have been wiped out as well. In Nebraska alone as many as a million calves have been killed. And remember many animals are fed with the corn crop that is now way behind schedule.
Additionally, mad cow disease has impacted deer and elk populations in 26 states.
Due to security issues along the U.S.-Mexican border shipments of fruit and produce have declined. According to ZeroHedge, markets are seeing price increases for avocados, cucumbers, eggplants, bell peppers, squash, cherry tomatoes, watermelons, and most other fruit and vegetables imported from the tropics. About 43 percent of all fruits and vegetables consumed in the United States come from Mexico.
Farmers are losing income, missing payments and going bankrupt. According to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue farm debt has reached historically high levels. The situation has forced regional banks to restructure and refinance existing loans. Farming bankruptcies are already occurring at a higher rate than at any time since the last recession and these rates will only grow worse in the aftermath of recent floods.
Last year in Wisconsin dairy farms closed at a rate of two per day.
The ongoing trade dispute with China has also driven down commodity prices.
Speaking of China in that country and across Asia African Swine Flu is absolutely devastating pig farms. China raises more pigs than any other country on earth and according to some estimates as many as 100 million animals may have been killed by this run-away disease.
Meanwhile in Norway a sudden algae bloom has killed at least 8 million farmed salmon. Worse still, the algae – fueled by warm conditions – continues to spread.
Anomalies with the the global food supply are occurring around the world. Radiation continues to leak into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima. Corexit used in the aftermath of the Gulf Oil Spill has dangerously contaminated much of the food chain in the Gulf of Mexico, including the fish, shrimp and seafood products consumed by Gulf Coast residents.
From corn to beef to pork and beyond, food production is going to be below expectations in 2019. Prices are going to soar and shortages will occur.
With all of this happening concurrently the question must be asked – is all of this being orchestrated deliberately? Are the United States and other nations engaging in weather warfare to harm the production of crops for political and economic purposes?
For those still naive enough to believe that weather modification and geoengineering are conspiracy theories here is a list of 140 related U.S. Patents. It would be foolish to believe that covert weather wars aren’t already being waged.
In 1974 Henry Kissinger’s National Security Study Memorandum (NSS 200 / The Kissenger Report), which was classified until 1989, advocated the use of food as a political weapon and as a means of population control. Kissenger predicted a series of contrived famines that would be implemented through mandatory programs via the U.N., USIA, and USAID.
Countries targeted for depopulation included Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, and Turkey.
In the Book of Revelation the third and fourth horseman of the apocalypse bring forth conditions that affect the availability and pricing of food and the eventual result is famine that kills those who dwell on the earth:
When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”
When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth. – Revelation 6:5-8
Are the shadows of these events already reaching back through time to loom ominously over us in the present day? While one should always trust in the Lord and put their faith and trust in Him for daily provision, it would be foolish not to prepare for hard days ahead while one still has the ability to do so.
One day – perhaps one day soon – time will be up.
