WORLD FAMINE LOOMING
Did you know that Australias rice crop this year (which helps supply the world) is only 2 percent of previous harvests? Yes, you read that right a mere 2 percent.
Worldwide, food is going to be short.
THREE YEARS RESERVE DOWN TO ONE DAY
The government of the United States, by Law was to always maintain a three year mixed- grain survival storage for every man, woman, and child in the United States.
Consequently, there used to be enough grain in storage to last the masses inside the United States for three full years, if need be. But now it all is but gone!
By 1996, the United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) claimed that there was enough food in ware-house storage to last every man, woman and child in the cities a 3 day supply and a 5 day supply for every man, woman, and child in the countryside, should a great national emergency occur.
In other words, if food trucks stopped running, the food supplies for the masses would be 3 days in the cities and 5 days in the countryside.
Then in 2003, the U.S.D.A. stopped measuring "days in reserve" of food because the amount of food in storage dropped to under a 1 day food supply for every man, woman, and child in the United States.
Instead, the calculation is now how many pounds are in the food-chain per person.
In 2003, there was 77 pounds of food per person in the warehouse food-chain in the United States.
What this means, is that during a national emergency, only 77 pounds of food per person is available before all food is TOTALLY GONE in the United States.
By September of 2005, this was down to 15.7 pounds of reserved foodstuffs - an 80% decrease in two years.
Of the 15.7 pounds of warehoused reserved food-stuffs, 11.0 pounds of the 15.7 pounds consists of unprocessed wheat.
The rest of the 15.7 pounds of survival foods in storage for every man, woman, and child, totalling 4.7 pounds, consists of the following foods:
1. Non-fat dry milk 2. Cheese 3. Corn by the bushel 4. Peanuts by the pound 5. Lentils by the pound (The U.S.D.A. Crop Production Report, September 12, 2005)
The situation is more critical in 2008.
And what ever country you live in, at least in the West, you can be certain that a similar food supply situation exists.
FOOD LAND SHRINKING
Just to feed the addition to the world population each year would take some 640 square miles of good new farmland.
The problem is that although tropical forests in the Amazon region, Indonesia, and the Congo are being chopped down for timber and to create farmland, the amount of farmland around the world has been shrinking through desertification - not growing.
We are on the verge of an unprecedented global food shortage. Food prices worldwide have risen 40% since mid-2007. You will see food prices skyrocket soon. The cost of rice has doubled in just 5 weeks.
