Global Crop Failures Continue: In Australia This Is Going To Be The WORST HARVEST Ever Recorded

 

Global food production is being hit from seemingly every side.  Thanks to absolutely crazy weather patterns, giant locust armies in Africa and the Middle East, and an unprecedented outbreak of African Swine Fever in China, a lot less food is being produced around the world than originally anticipated.  Even during the best of years we really struggle to feed everyone on the planet, and so a lot of people are wondering what is going to happen as global food supplies become tighter and tighter.  The mainstream media in the United States is so obsessed with politics right now that they haven’t been paying much attention to this emerging crisis, but the truth is that this growing nightmare is only going to intensify in the months ahead.

In Australia, conditions have been extremely hot and extremely dry, and that helped to fuel the horrific wildfires that we recently witnessed.

And everyone knew that agricultural production in Australia was going to be disappointing this year, but it turns out that it is actually going to be the worst ever recorded…

Australia’s hottest and driest year on record has slashed crop production, with summer output expected to fall to the lowest levels on record, according to official projections released Tuesday.

The country’s agriculture department said it expects production of crops like sorghum, cotton and rice to fall 66 percent — the lowest levels since records began in 1980-81.

The continent of Australia is considered to be one of the breadbaskets of the world.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 2018/19 Australia exported over 9 million tons of wheat to the rest of the world.

But thanks to relentless crop failures, Australia has started to import wheat, and that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

So instead of helping to feed the rest of the world, Australia is now relying on the rest of us to help feed them.

And what is happening this year didn’t just barely break the old records.  In fact, one senior economist says that this will be the worst summer crop production the country has ever seen “by a large margin”…

“It is the lowest summer crop production in this period by a large margin,” Peter Collins, a senior economist with the department’s statistical body ABARES told AFP.

Of course if the rest of the world was doing great we could certainly survive a downturn in Australia.

Unfortunately, that is definitely not the case.

Right now, billions upon billions of locusts are voraciously devouring farms in eastern Africa and the Middle East.  As I detailed the other day, giant armies of locusts the size of large cities are traveling up to 100 miles per day as they search for food.  When they descend on a farm, all the crops can be consumed literally within 30 seconds.  It is a nightmare of epic proportions, and UN officials are telling us that this crisis is only going to get worse over the next couple of months.

In Uganda, the army has been called out to help fight this locust plague, but it is making very little difference…

Under a warm morning sun scores of weary soldiers stare as millions of yellow locusts rise into the northern Ugandan sky, despite hours spent spraying vegetation with chemicals in an attempt to kill them.

From the tops of shea trees, fields of pea plants and tall grass savanna, the insects rise in a hypnotic murmuration, disappearing quickly to wreak devastation elsewhere.

The most effective way of fighting these locust swarms is to spray insecticide on them from the air, but even that only produces very limited results.

However, at least it is better than doing nothing.

The UN is trying to raise a lot more money to get more planes into the air, because if nothing is done the number of locusts “could grow up to 500 times by June”…

The U.N. has said $76 million is needed immediately. On Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a visit to Ethiopia said the U.S. would donate another $8 million to the effort. That follows an earlier $800,000.

The number of overall locusts could grow up to 500 times by June, when drier weather begins, experts have said. Until then, the fear is that more rains in the coming weeks will bring fresh vegetation to feed a new generation of the voracious insects.

Overall, these locusts are affecting nations “with a combined population of nearly 2 billion”, and the amount of food that these locusts are destroying is unprecedented.

Meanwhile, China has been dealing with the worst outbreak of African Swine Fever in history.

African Swine Fever does not affect humans, but it sweeps through herds of pigs like wildfire.  There is no vaccine, there is no cure, and once African Swine Fever starts infecting pigs in a certain area the only thing that can be done is to kill the rest of the pigs to keep it from spreading anywhere else.

Unfortunately, China has not been able to get this outbreak under control, and the losses have been staggering.

According to the New York Times, the number of pigs that have been wiped out in China already is equivalent to “nearly one-quarter of all the world’s pigs”…

The disease was first reported in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, in early August 2018. By the end of August 2019, the entire pig population of China had dropped by about 40 percent. China accounted for more than half of the global pig population in 2018, and the epidemic there alone has killed nearly one-quarter of all the world’s pigs.

But of course China is not the only one dealing with African Swine Fever.

In fact, cases of African Swine Fever have now been identified “in 50 countries”, and U.S. pig farmers are deathly afraid of what would happen if this disease starts spreading here.

As a result of this crisis, pork prices in China have gone through the roof, and many families are no longer able to eat pork at all.

Never before in the modern era have we seen so many major threats to global food production emerge simultaneously.

There are more than 7 billion people living on our planet today, and we need to be able to grow enough food to feed everyone.

If we aren’t able to do that, food prices will start to get really high, and people in the poorest areas simply will not have enough food to feed their families. (Click to Source)

‘Biblical plague’ of bats forces town into lockdown leaving locals afraid to leave homes

The bat-tornado was so intense that the local hospital’s air ambulance was grounded as they made it impossible to fly in Ingham, Australia

By Kelly-Ann Mills – 12:48, 6 FEB 2020 – UPDATED13:02, 6 FEB 2020

 

The flying animals have taken over the town of Ingham in North Queensland, but they are a protected species so very little can be done.

Mayor of Hinchinbrook Council Raymon Jayo told news magazine show A Current Affair: “It just seems to me that every bat in Australia is now in Ingham.

“There’s four different species and because they all have young at different times, there’s hardly a window of opportunity when we can interact with these bats to try and move them on.”

But outspoken local politician Bob Katter told the program if it was up to him, he’s “be down here with a shotgun”.

He said: “There comes a point where I think not breaking the law really becomes ‘dogging it,’ as we say in North Queensland.

“And I think that point has probably been reached.”

President of the Ingham’s Chamber of Commerce, Rachael Coco, added: “If this was happening at parliament house, somebody would have come up with a solution by now.”

He added that  that tourism in the area has taken a dramatic hit since the bats arrived.

Trees around one primary school are full of the upside down fruit bats, with many parents refusing to send their children to school until they are gone.

Mum Susanne Kaurila added: “They’re not stepping a foot in that ground until something is being done.” (Click to Source)

Australia Launches Massive Campaign To Take Down Anti-Vaxxers

e832b0062bf7053ecd0b470de7444e90fe76e7d51ab213429cf8c2_1280_vaccine-777x437

The Australian government isn’t pinching any pennies when it comes to subverting anti-vaccine causes. In fact, they are reportedly now spending $5.5 million dollars to campaign against the anti-vaccine movement. A movement that’s already taken government hits, such as “no jab, no pay.” The country has also banned some individuals who have promoted anti-vaccine rhetoric and media.

The campaign, called “Get the Facts about Immunisation,” is a series of handouts and videos encouraging vaccination. The videos and handouts also feature parents who are grieving the losses of children.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Health Minister Greg Hunt explained “it is these areas of low coverage which pose risks to the community, especially to people who can’t be vaccinated, like newborns and those with medical reasons.” (Click to Site)

Real life Zombies: High on a new street drug called flakka, Truly Frightening

Now the practices of the sinful nature are clearly evident: they are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality (total irresponsibility, lack of self-control), idolatry, sorcery, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions [that promote heresies],  envy, drunkenness, riotous behavior, and other things like these. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  Galatians 5:19-21 Amplified Bible (AMP)

flakka_2-900x506

Called flakka, but known on the street as ‘gravel’ and by chemists as alpha-PVP, the terrifying hallucinogen has earned a reputation as one of America’s scariest drugs – and it’s being synthesised in China and shipped in the kilograms to Australia.

Users can order the drug online and have it delivered to their mailbox the next day, or find an synthetic alternative in their local sex shop shelves – with no understanding of its dosage or contents.

Tyren Edwards, National Chief Scientist at Safe Work Laboratory, told Daily Mail Australia flakka was easier to get a hold of than methamphetamine in Australia.

‘Methamphetamine is harder to get hold of than flakka in Australia, it’s definitely out there … (but) you can only judge it on the seizures of synthetics which are hardly ever reported.’

Mr Edwards said as little as six grains of flakka was enough to send a user into a chemical state of oblivion, and could result in death in just 10 minutes.

He said the drug could be manufactured for just $0.75 a hit.

Videos of flakka users in the US show people writhing on the ground and screaching, hiding from non-existent gunman, running naked through city streets, trying to have sex with a tree and claiming they are God. (Click to Site)

The War On Cash Goes Nuclear In India, Australia and Across The World

A UFO nearly caused an air crash over Toronto when a passenger plane with 58 people on board came face-to-face with the mystery object.

Two flight attendants were injured when the pilots put the plane into a sudden nose-dive to avoid a head-on crash.

They later reported the object which appeared on their flight path might have been a hot-air balloon or a drone but aviation experts have voiced doubt over both theories

We are living in a world where paper fiat money is becoming a novelty.

In Australia, Citibank has just become the first to declare that it no longer will accept notes or coins. Only digital transactions. This follows on the heels of India banning large cash denominations.

The cash-oriented changes of these two countries are especially troubling in light of the eventual plans to phase out large denomination euro notes and the US 100 dollar bill by 2018.  Just as the Economist predicted nearly 30 years ago, the world is going cashless. (Click to Article)
