BLACK HORSEMEN VISION
The PROPHECY of the GREAT FOOD CRISIS

There is coming a world food crisis.
This world system is heading to its end.
In the book of Revelation we see the emergence of the Black Horseman.
He is carrying a pair of scales in his hand.
It is a symbol of the emergence of Trade Authority that will ultimately brings the world to food crisis.

A quart of wheat for a denarius, and 3 quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and the wine.
Revelation 6.6
This is a prophecy that the Trade Authority will make food prices become expensive, while the other material such as oil and wine was not too affected. see Joel 2:24

The Prophecy of the Black Horseman is being fulfilled today, the prices of food bounce up, and this has triggered a famine that struck mainly in poor countries.
Our Lord, Jesus Christ prophecy that
There will be famine in various places …. Matthew 24:7

Bosnia on red alert during hottest summer on record
8/23/12  Bosnian authorities put the entire country on red alert Thursday against a heatwave that has seen the Balkan nation bake in its hottest summer on record, the national weather institute said.
Meteorologist Dzenan Zulum said the months of June, July and August had been the hottest since measurements were first recorded 120 years ago.
In some places, the mercury has soared to 41 degrees Celsius (105.8 Fahrenheit) and temperatures in the capital Sarajevo have in recent days been about seven degrees Celsius warmer than normal.

"We predict a similar temperature for the next two or three days followed by a slight cooling from Sunday," Zulum said.
Farmers say between 50-80 percent of their crops have been damaged in the heatwave, and water distribution to several towns has been disrupted.
Bosnia is also battling dozens of forest fires in the south and east of the country, with many hundreds of hectares (acres) of land burned.

BPA Levels high in People Who Eat Canned Foods
Nov 2011  
Eating canned food every day may raise the levels of the compound bisphenol A (BPA) in a person's urine more than previously suspected, a new study suggests.
People who ate a serving of canned soup every day for five days had BPA levels of 20.8 micrograms per liter of urine, whereas people who instead ate fresh soup had levels of 1.1 micrograms per liter, according to the study. BPA is found in many canned foods — it is a byproduct of the chemicals used to prevent corrosion.

When the researchers looked at the rise in BPA levels seen in the average participant who ate canned soup compared with those who ate fresh soup, they found a 1,221 percent jump.
The levels of BPA seen in the study participants "are among the most extreme reported in a nonoccupational setting," the researchers wrote in their study. In the general population, levels have been found to be around 1 to 2 micrograms per liter.
The study noted that levels higher than 13 micrograms per liter were found in only the top 5 percent of participants in the National Health and Examination Survey, which is an ongoing study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Bad influence of [hormone-disrupting] chemicals on health in general, and BPA is one of them.

Obesity Linked to BPA Exposure
Feb 2012
Bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen, is wreaking havoc with the health of Americans in particular. China and Canada alike have deemed BPA a dangerous chemical, but the U.S. seems to be oblivious to the connection between its super-sized citizens and this chemical that has been linked to ailments such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
While lifestyle definitely factors into the growing obesity problem, scientists are noting that not only are children and adults fattening up at a rate double that of 30 years ago; newborns, lab rodents, pets and wildlife that live in close proximity to humans are also gaining weight. This shines a light on the fact that maybe calorie intake is not the only thing driving the epidemic. Can a person really say infants, pets and wildlife are suddenly getting lazy too?

Angel Nadal, a BPA expert at Spain's Miguel Hernandez University, said, "When you eat something with BPA, it's like telling your organs that you are eating more than you are really eating."
Nadal published his latest research in PLoS ONE, last week. His findings show that the chemical triggers the release of double the insulin necessary to break down food. High insulin levels desensitize the body which leads to weight gain. This chemical also plays a large part in the current surge in Type 2 diabetes according to his studies. With half of the developed world overweight and over 250 million people suffering from diabetes, this study should not be taken lightly.

Food Storage
20 Crops That Keep and How to Store them

Sleeping Quarters for Storage Crops
Success with storage crops hinges on finding methods that convince the crops that they are enjoying a natural period of dormancy in unusually comfortable conditions. This typically involves slowing physiology by controlling respiration (usually by lowering temperature) and/or providing moisture so crisp root vegetables sense they are still in the ground. Some staple storage crops, such as garlic, onions and shallots, need dry conditions to support prolonged dormancy.

Most storage crops need to be cured to enhance their storage potential. During the curing process, potatoes and sweet potatoes heal over small wounds to the skin, garlic and onions form a dry seal over the openings at their necks, and dry beans and grain corn let go of excess moisture that could otherwise cause them to rot. Harvesting, curing and storage requirements vary with each crop — see the charts in How to Harvest, Cure and Store 20 Storage Crops for full details. In my experience, harvesting and curing vegetables properly leads to much more flexibility when it comes to long-term storage conditions.

Storing Potatoes
Line plastic laundry baskets with newspapers, with potatoes arranged in layers between more newspapers. Place the packed, covered baskets in an unheated garage.
In the basement, make short towers of potatoes by stacking them between layers of open egg cartons. Cover the towers with cloth to protect the potatoes from light.

Place sorted potatoes in cloth grocery bags that have been lined with black plastic bags, and store in a cold space under the stairs. A similar method: Sort different potatoes into paper bags, then place the bags in milk crates to prevent bruising.
Use an old dresser in a cool room or basement for storing potatoes in winter. Leave the drawers partially open for ventilation.

In a shady spot outdoors, place a tarp over the ground and cover it with an inch of loose straw. Pile on potatoes and cover with more straw, a second tarp, and a 10-inch blanket of leaves or straw.
Bury a garbage can horizontally so that its bottom half is at least 12 inches deep in the soil. Place potatoes in the can with shredded paper or clean straw. Secure the lid with a bungee cord, and cover with an old blanket if needed to shade out sun.

Midwest drought: A changed world emerges
September 21. 2012
- At first glance, it looks like a typical fall across the Midwest.
Its not.  Beneath green pastures and lawns brought to life by August rains, the earth is still desiccated.
Corn stalks are half as tall as they should be and the husks contain stunted ears, or nothing at all.
The drought of 2012 isnt just a rural tragedy. Ohio and Mississippi river barges carry less cargo to avoid running aground in low water.
Homeowners are paying for expensive repairs to basements and foundations separated from the shrinking soil around them.
Businesses that depend on water, canoe rental, campgrounds, fishing, feel the economic pain, too.

The northern Great Plains and Upper Midwest remain drought- stricken.
All of 9 states cant shake the drought.
Almost 65% of America is enduring drought conditions.
Prices of food, gas, retail goods and utilities have all ticked up.
The extreme drought has been exacerbated by near-record heat.
The summer of 2012 was the third-hottest in U.S. weather history.

September 25, 2012 10:50 AM  
Global bacon shortage "unavoidable," group says

(CBS News) BLTs next year might have to forego the B, according to a British trade group.

Britain's National Pig Association, "the voice of the British pig industry," warned recently that a global shortage of bacon and pork "is now unavoidable" because of shrinking herds.

The trade group reported Thursday that annual pig production for Europe's main pig producers fell across the board between 2011 and 2012, a trend that "is being mirrored around the world." The group tied the decline to increased feed costs, an effect of poor harvests for corn and soybeans.

Even though the pig association issued its dire prediction as part of a campaign to get British supermarkets to pay pig farmers more for their products, the possibility of a pork shortage received plenty of coverage in American news outlets.

Yeah, all of the pieces are more or less set.

The Math That Predicted the Revolutions Sweeping the Globe Right Now

It's happening in Ukraine, Venezuela, Thailand, Bosnia, Syria, and beyond. Revolutions, unrest, and riots are sweeping the globe. The near-simultaneous eruption of violent protest can seem random and chaotic; inevitable symptoms of an unstable world. But there's at least one common thread between the disparate nations, cultures, and people in conflict, one element that has demonstrably proven to make these uprisings more likely: high global food prices.

Just over a year ago, complex systems theorists at the New England Complex Systems Institute warned us that if food prices continued to climb, so too would the likelihood that there would be riots across the globe. Sure enough, we're seeing them now. The paper's author, Yaneer Bar-Yam, charted the rise in the FAO food price index—a measure the UN uses to map the cost of food over time—and found that whenever it rose above 210, riots broke out worldwide. It happened in 2008 after the economic collapse, and again in 2011, when a Tunisian street vendor who could no longer feed his family set himself on fire in protest.

Bar-Yam built a model with the data, which then predicted that something like the Arab Spring would ensue just weeks before it did. Four days before Mohammed Bouazizi's self-immolation helped ignite the revolution that would spread across the region, NECSI submitted a government report that highlighted the risk that rising food prices posed to global stability. Now, the model has once again proven prescient—2013 saw the third-highest food prices on record, and that's when the seeds for the conflicts across the world were sewn.

[img]http://lh4.ggpht.com/hcURiLQ6ltc8Eu4jO3VxEyYnekvzEF56HlYYOPvMSZOfA_fe0YnxCcWJohnOV7X5Hpj5zvh48gR3yerwQSUohB9WVyBFlcf7stzjNg=s0[/img]

"I have a long list of the countries that have had major social unrest in the past 18 months consistent with our projections," Bar-Yam tells me. "The food prices are surely a major contributor---our analysis says that 210 on the FAO index is the boiling point and we have been hovering there for the past 18 months."

There are certainly many other factors fueling mass protests, but hunger—or the desperation caused by its looming specter—is often the tipping point. Sometimes, it's clearly implicated: In Venezuela—where students have taken to the streets and protests have left citizens dead—food prices are at a staggering 18-year high.

"In some of the cases the link is more explicit, in others, given that we are at the boiling point, anything will trigger unrest. At the boiling point, the impact depends on local conditions," Bar-Yam says. But a high price of food worldwide can effect countries that aren't feeling the pinch as much. "In addition, there is a contagion effect: given widespread social unrest that is promoted by high food prices, examples from one country drive unrest in others."

Here's the list of the countries Bar-Yam has cited as suffering from unrest related to the rise in the cost of eating:

   South Africa
   Haiti
   Argentina
   Egypt
   Tunisia
   Brazil
   Turkey
   Colombia
   Libya
   Sweden (yes, Sweden)
   India
   China
   Bulgaria
   Chile
   Syria
   Thailand
   Bangladesh
   Bahrain
   Ukraine
   Venezuela
   Bosnia

In Thailand, where clashes between mass demonstrators and authorities in Bangkok have claimed multiple lives, food prices have been steadily rising. In 2012, a trend towards rising food prices prompted the UN to issue a warning: the poor will be hit hard, and unrest may follow. The nation's rampant inflation caused prices to continue to rise further still in 2013. Today, there are fatal riots.

In Bosnia, which erupted into violent conflict last week, high unemployment and hunger are prime drivers of a discontent that's been simmering for months. On February 9, Chiara Milan wrote "Today, after more than one year of protests and hunger, eventually the world got to know about [the protesters'] grievances."

Food shortages caused by drought helped spur Syria's civil war. High food prices helped precipitate the fare hike protests in Brazil. The list goes on.

The food riots in places like wealthy, socialist Sweden and the booming economies of Brazil and Chile highlight the fact that the cost of eating can fuel unrest anywhere; even in nations with robust democracies and high standards of living. With the inequality worsening across the globe, this is worth paying special attention to—lest we forget there are millions of Americans going hungry every year too.

So. The cost of food is high; discontent is raging. Thankfully, Bar-Yam's model sees at least temporary relief on the horizon.

"As to the trend for the next few months: Grain prices have gone down, starting with corn last summer," he says. "This has yet to propagate through the food system to lower prices, but they should drop soon. This may help reduce the unrest that is happening."

However, he emphasizes the structural threats to the global food system haven't been addressed. Bar-Yam has written at length about what he believes to be the root cause of food price swings: financial speculation and food-for-fuel policies like ethanol subsidies. Both, he argues, artificially drive up prices on the global market and, in turn, cause hunger and unrest.

Whether or not the prices will drop, he says, hinges largely on US and European policy decisions.

"Everything now is very sensitive to what will happen with the ethanol mandate," Bar-Yam tells me. "The EPA has proposed not following the mandated increase this year, keeping it about the same as last year. There is a Senate bill to repeal the mandate sponsored by Feinstein and Coburn. The European Union has stated that it will implement a regulation of commodity markets (because of the impact on poor populations), and the CFTC is still fighting the market traders in trying to regulate the US markets."

The way the global food system works right now, with wheat, corn, and rice traded globally as commodities, domestic food production doesn't necessarily guarantee a population will get enough to eat. Ukraine, for instance, produced record amounts of wheat last year—but exported most of its gains. This web of imports and exports creates a global marketplace that is vulnerable to price shocks. That's why Bar-Yam believes that speculators and bad ethanol policy are essentially feeding global unrest.

"The main thing is that matters are very much in flux," he says. "We may still have higher food prices if the policies are not implemented but if they are, we may have a significant reduction in prices and lower unrest globally."

If not, in other words, the riots will burn on.

Extremely Contagious Pig Virus Has Already Killed More Than 4 Million Hogs In The U.S.

If you eat pork, get ready to pay a lot more for it.  A highly contagious pig virus known as “Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus” has now spread to 27 different U.S. states, and it has killed more than 4 million hogs since last May.  Smithfield Foods, the largest pork producer in the entire world, estimates that approximately 10 percent of all adult female hogs in America have contracted the disease already, and there is a very good chance that any offspring that they have will die.  That is because the mortality rate for this disease for piglets is between 80 and 100 percent.  Fortunately, we are being told that this disease does not affect humans.  However, considering the fact that California is in the midst of one of the worst droughts in recorded history, and considering the fact that the U.S. cattle herd has shrunk

Bananageddon: Millions face hunger as deadly fungus Panama disease decimates global banana crop
4/4/14

Scientists have warned that the world’s banana crop, worth £26 billion and a crucial part of the diet of more than 400 million people, is facing “disaster” from virulent diseases immune to pesticides or other forms of control.

Alarm at the most potent threat – a fungus known as Panama disease tropical race 4 (TR4) – has risen dramatically after it was announced in recent weeks that it has jumped from South-east Asia, where it has already devastated export crops, to Mozambique and Jordan.

A United Nations agency told The Independent that the spread of TR4 represents an “expanded threat to global banana production”. Experts said there is a risk that the fungus, for which there is currently no effective treatment, has also already made the leap to the world’s most important banana growing areas in Latin America, where the disease threatens to destroy vast plantations of the Cavendish variety. The variety accounts for 95 per cent of the bananas shipped to export markets including the United Kingdom, in a trade worth £5.4bn.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) will warn in the coming days that the presence of TR4 in the Middle East and Africa means “virtually all export banana plantations” are vulnerable unless its spread can be stopped and new resistant strains developed.

In a briefing document obtained by The Independent, the FAO warns: “In view of the challenges associated with control of the disease and the risk posed to the global banana supply, it is evident that a concerted effort is required from industry, research institutions, government and international organisations to prevent spread of the disease.”

US bacon prices rise after virus kills baby pigs
4/8/14

A virus never before seen in the U.S. has killed millions of baby pigs in less than a year, and with little known about how it spreads or how to stop it, it’s threatening pork production and pushing up prices by 10 percent or more.

Scientists think porcine epidemic diarrhea, which does not infect humans or other animals, came from China, but they don’t know how it got into the country or spread to 27 states since last May. The federal government is looking into how such viruses might spread, while the pork industry, wary of future outbreaks, has committed $1.7 million to research the disease.

The U.S. is both a top producer and exporter of pork, but production could decline about 7 percent this year compared to last — the biggest drop in more than 30 years, according to a recent report from Rabobank, which focuses on the food, beverage and agribusiness industries.

Already, prices have shot up: A pound of bacon averaged $5.46 in February, 13 percent more than a year ago, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Ham and chops have gone up too, although not as much.

Attention Shoppers: Fruit and Vegetable Prices Are Rising
4/15/14



Grocery shoppers may soon need more green in their wallets to afford their next salad.

The cost of fresh produce is poised to jump in the coming months as a three-year drought in California shows few signs of abating, according to an Arizona State University study set to be released Wednesday.

The study found a head of lettuce could increase in price as much as 62 cents to $2.44; avocado prices could rise 35 cents to $1.60 each; and tomatoes could cost 45 cents more at $2.84 per pound. (The run-up in produce prices is in line with other projections showing that overall food cost gains are expected to accelerate this year.)

The latest projections were compiled by Timothy Richards, an agribusiness professor at ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business. He studied the drought’s effect on farmland and consumer purchasing trends to determine the eight fresh fruits and vegetables likely to see the largest price increases this spring and summer.

And the price increases may already be happening. Grocery prices rose by 0.5% for the second-straight month in March, according to the Labor Department’s consumer-price index, released Tuesday. It was the largest two-month gain in the food-at-home category since 2011. Fruit and vegetable prices rose 0.9% last month, after a 1.1% gain in February. Meat and dairy prices are also increasing. Meanwhile, overall consumer prices rose just 0.2% last month, as broader inflation in the economy remains tepid.

California is the largest domestic producer of each of the products Mr. Richards identified, ranging from grapes to peppers. And in the case of avocados, it’s the only state with a significant crop.

The drought has wiped out between 10% and 20% of California crops for the eight items, but the size of the expected price increases varies widely. Lettuce prices could jump as much as 34% and avocado prices could rise 28%, the largest projected increases.

“People are the least price-sensitive when it comes to those items, and they’re willing to pay what it takes to get them,” Mr. Richards said. “It’s hard to make a salad without lettuce.”

In basic economic terms, the drought reduces supply, which puts upward pressure on prices. But how high the price can rise is determined by consumers’ willingness to pay more against their ability to find a substitute.

Packaged salads, for example, would increase in price by only 13%, even though many of the ingredients in them are projected to increase in cost by a greater percentage. That’s because consumers view premade salads as a “luxury” good and would readily switch to lower-cost alternative if the price gets too high, Mr. Richards said. They could chop the lettuce themselves or buy frozen vegetables.

The impact could spread beyond the produce aisle. Items such as lettuce, tomatoes and peppers are commonly used in deli sandwiches and salsas, among other products.  The drought could also cause those items to cost more.

Still, the run-up in prices is likely to be somewhat temporary, Mr. Richards said. When prices increase, farmers outside of California, including foreign suppliers, will be incentivized to ship more crops to the U.S. That will in turn put downward pressure on costs.

But with water-supply problems expected to persist for years, California farmers will have some difficult choices to make, he said. They’ll need to determine which crops should receive the limited amount of available water, and which should be allowed to fall away.

“We could be looking at future,” he said, “where California is no longer bread basket for the country.”

Meat Prices Are Soaring
April, 2014
 Drought Monitor April 1The average price of USDA choice-grade beef has soared to $5.28 a pound, and the average price of a pound of bacon has skyrocketed to $5.46.  Unfortunately for those that like to eat meat, this is just the beginning of the price increases.  Due to an absolutely crippling drought that won’t let go of the western half of the country, the total size of the U.S. cattle herd has shrunk for seven years in a row, and it is now the smallest that is has been since 1951.  But back in 1951, we had less than half the number of mouths to feed.  And a devastating pig virus that has never been seen in the United States before has already killed up to 6 million pigs in this country and continues to spread like wildfire.  What all of this means is that the supply of meat is going to be tight for the foreseeable future even as demand for meat continues to go up.  This is going to result in much higher prices, and so food is going to put a much larger dent in American family budgets in the months and years to come.

US orange production hit by disease, juice prices soar
4/18/14

A citrus disease spread by a tiny insect has devastated Florida's orange crop, which is expected to be the worst in nearly 30 years, and sent juice prices soaring on New York markets.

The culprit? The gnat-sized Asian citrus psyllid, which is infecting citrus trees across the Sunshine State with huanglongbing, or citrus greening disease, which causes fruit to taste bitter and fall from trees too soon.

"It feels we are losing the fight," said Ellis Hunt, the head of a family-run citrus farm spread over about 5,000 acres (2,000 hectares) in the central Florida town of Lake Wales
.

The deadly bacteria has slashed his annual production over the past few years from one million boxes of fruit to 750,000.

Citrus greening disease has become such a problem this year that the US government has lowered its forecast for the upcoming harvest four times.

The latest figures, published earlier this month by the US Department of Agriculture, predict production of 110 million boxes of fruit, or roughly 4.95 million tons.

That is 18 percent less than last year, and the lowest since 1985, when citrus groves were hit by a deep freeze. It is also far from the record 244 million boxes collected in 1998.

The outlook surprised investors, as the USDA forecast dip was "bigger than the trade had anticipated," according to Joe Nikruto, senior market strategist for RJO Futures.

Following the release of the latest USDA figures, the price of frozen concentrated orange juice rose to its highest point on the Intercontinental Exchange in New York since late March 2012.

Juice for May delivery, the most traded, rose seven percent in three trading sessions to $1.67 a pound.

The price has also been driven by drought in Brazil, the world's top producer of orange juice, but Nikruto explained: "The USDA numbers are fueling this fire."

- Putting juice back on breakfast table -

On his Florida farm, Hunt is fighting the good fight but all the insecticide, fertilizer and extra minerals in the world don't seem to be helping.

"We spray at least every four weeks... but we are not keeping pace with the spread," he said.

Some small growers have practically abandoned their trees, as the rise in prices will not make up for their production shortfalls.

Authorities are scrambling to help the citrus industry -- which generates $9 billion a year in Florida alone and employs 76,000 people -- stay afloat.

Millions of dollars have been poured into research on ways to battle citrus greening disease.

Of course, experts are bearing in mind that spreading bacteria-fighting chemicals on 70 million trees across 530,000 acres would be no easy task.

"We will witness replanting and increases in production within the next three to five years," said Daniel Sleep, an official in the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
.

"With the vast array of resources that have been committed, no other outcome seems possible."

But once the immediate crisis is averted, another problem looms: how to convince American consumers to put orange juice back on their breakfast tables.

The United States remains by far the world's top consumer of the drink, but that consumption has dropped by 30 percent since 2003.

Why? Grocery store shelves are loaded with other beverage options, including diet sodas and flavored waters with lower calorie counts for weight-conscious Americans.

**Do you also see what else they're doing? They're pointing you further to these poisonous alternatives(these "diet" sodas with Aspertame et al in them).

"Juice is often associated with breakfast and as our society changes, we rush ourselves a little bit and we have a tendency to skip it," Sleep noted.

The juice-breakfast link is however helping to keep prices from going up too much, Nikruto says, as it is difficult to "charge more for a product that people are demanding less every day."

An Unprecedented Plague Has Hit Oranges And Another Has Hit Bananas

What is causing all of these plagues to hit our food supply?  Have you heard of citrus greening disease?  Probably not, but it has already gotten so bad that it is being projected that Florida’s orange harvest will be the smallest in 30 years.  Have you heard of TR4?  Probably not, but it has become such a nightmare that some analysts believe that it could eventually wipe out the entire global supply of the type of bananas that Americans eat.  In addition, another major plague is killing millions of our pigs, and a crippling drought that never seems to end is absolutely devastating agricultural production in the state of California.   Are we just having bad luck, or is there something else to all of this?

Citrus greening disease has been a steadily growing problem that has reached epidemic levels this year.  Because of this disease, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is projecting that orange production in the U.S. this year will be down 18 percent compared to last year.  Here is more on this horrible plague from Yahoo News…

   A citrus disease spread by a tiny insect has devastated Florida’s orange crop, which is expected to be the worst in nearly 30 years, and sent juice prices soaring on New York markets.

   The culprit? The gnat-sized Asian citrus psyllid, which is infecting citrus trees across the Sunshine State with huanglongbing, or citrus greening disease, which causes fruit to taste bitter and fall from trees too soon.

   “It feels we are losing the fight,” said Ellis Hunt, the head of a family-run citrus farm spread over about 5,000 acres (2,000 hectares) in the central Florida town of Lake Wales.

Another horrifying disease is threatening the global supply of bananas.  In fact, according to a recent CNBC article, the kind of bananas that we eat today could eventually be totally eliminated by the TR4 fungus…

   Banana lovers take note: The world’s supply of the fruit is under attack from a fungus strain that could wipe out the popular variety that Americans eat.

   “It’s a very serious situation,” said Randy Ploetz, a professor of plant pathology at the University of Florida who in 1989 originally discovered a strain of Panama disease, called TR4, that may be growing into a serious threat to U.S. supplies of the fruit and Latin American producers.

   “There’s nothing at this point that really keeps the fungus from spreading,” he said in an interview with CNBC.

   While there are nearly 1,000 varieties of bananas, the most popular is the Cavendish, which accounts for 45 percent of the fruit’s global crop—and the one Americans mostly find in their supermarkets.

Another plague that is affecting our food supply is a virus known as porcine epidemic diarrhea.  It has already spread to 27 different U.S. states and has already killed up to 6 million pigs since first being spotted in the U.S. last May.

As a result of this virus, pork production is going to be down substantially this year, and it is being estimated that Americans could pay up to 20 percent more for pork by the end of the year.

And of course perhaps the worst plague of all that we are experiencing at the moment is the nightmarish drought in California that never seems to end.  Conditions are so dry that it is being estimated that California farmers may leave up to 800,000 acres fallow this year.  In other words, they are not going to grow anything at all.

Needless to say, this is going to result in much smaller overall harvests.  Just check out these numbers from the New York Times…

   A recent report on prospective planting from the federal Department of Agriculture forecast a 20 percent decline in California’s rice crop and a 35 percent decline in cotton this year from last year’s crop.

And it isn’t just rice and cotton that we need to be concerned about.  In a previous article, I included the following information which shows how dependent the rest of the U.S. is on fruits and vegetables grown in the state of California…

   The state produces 99 percent of the artichokes grown in the US, 44 percent of asparagus, a fifth of cabbage, two-thirds of carrots, half of bell peppers, 89 percent of cauliflower, 94 percent of broccoli, and 95 percent of celery. Leafy greens? California’s got the market cornered: 90 percent of the leaf lettuce we consume, along with and 83 percent of Romaine lettuce and 83 percent of fresh spinach, come from the big state on the left side of the map. Cali also cranks a third of total fresh tomatoes consumed in the U.S.—and 95 percent of ones destined for cans and other processing purposes.

   As for fruit, I get that 86 percent of lemons and a quarter of oranges come from there; its sunny climate makes it perfect for citrus, and lemons store relatively well. Ninety percent of avocados? Fine. But 84 percent of peaches, 88 percent of fresh strawberries, and 97 percent of fresh plums?

   Come on. Surely the other 49 states can do better.

The lack of fresh produce is already being felt in California.  Usually, fresh produce accounts for about half of the food handed out at food banks in the state, but these days fresh produce is in short supply…

   The effects of California’s drought could soon hit the state’s food banks, which serve 2 million of its poorest residents.

   Fresh produce accounts for more than half the handouts at Bay Area food banks, but with an estimated minimum of 500,000 acres to be fallowed in California, growers will have fewer fruits and vegetables to donate.

   With less local supply, food prices will spike, increasing as much as 34 percent for a head of lettuce and 18 percent for tomatoes, according to an Arizona State University study released last week. With fewer fields planted, there could be as many as 20,000 unemployed agricultural workers who will need more food handouts, especially in the Central Valley.

By themselves, each one of these plagues is very serious.

Taken together, they represent an emerging “perfect storm” which could have a dramatic impact on our food supply.

So why is all of this happening?

Why is our food supply being hit with so many plagues?

Dozens of Texas communities with less than 90 days of water

5/19/14

Joe Mooneyham no longer grows any flowers or plants in his backyard. Instead, the Pebble Beach resident in Bandera County is nursing a quiet optimism that it will all come back. "I haven't watered since September of last year," Mooneyham said. “Everything was just emerald green." He misses the greenery, the deer and the water.

Medina Lake, which used to send gentle waves lapping at his backyard dock, has receded more than a mile and a quarter away. "Every day I go on and check the level," Mooneyham said. Pebble Beach is a community whose name is borne out in the field of small stones that were once covered by several feet of lake water. It's also a community reporting less than a three-month supply of water for its residents.

Neighbors a few miles down the road are having water brought in by the truckload, or face spending tens of thousands of dollars to dig for it. "The well-service people have been lowering pumps. Some have had to have new wells drilled. It's just a fact of nature," said Bandera County Judge Richard Evans. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality keeps tabs on those places where the water is scarce enough to draw concern.

Pebble Beach is on the list, and so are 33-others which could be out of water within three months. A dozen municipalities are reporting they could go dry in 45 days or less.

California Drought Threatens Food Supply
May 23, 2014
 Collapsing Aquifer in California Central Valley, American breadbasket, where fruit, nuts and vegetables are grown which feed us.
Now, for the first time this century, the entire state is in severe to exceptional drought.
Its really depressing for growers to leave ground out, unplanted.  They still pay taxes and payments on everything.  Its a breadbasket of our whole country, and so much ground being fallowed is not good!

USDA warns of sticker shock on U.S. beef as grilling season starts
5/23/14

The Department of Agriculture has warned of sticker shock facing home chefs on the eve of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the unofficial start of the U.S. summer grilling season.

The agency said conditions in California could have "large and lasting effects on U.S. fruit, vegetable, dairy and egg prices," as the most populous U.S. state struggles through what officials are calling a catastrophic drought.

The consumer price index (CPI) for U.S. beef and veal is up almost 10 percent so far in 2014, reflecting the fastest increase in retail beef prices since the end of 2003. Prices, even after adjusting for inflation, are at record highs.

"The drought in Texas and Oklahoma has worsened somewhat in the last month, providing further complications to the beef production industry," USDA said.

Beef and veal prices for the whole of 2014 are now forecast to increase by 5.5 percent to 6.5 percent, a sharp advance from last month's forecast for a 3 to 4 percent rise. Pork prices are set to rise by 3 percent to 4 percent, up from a 2 to 3 percent advance expected a month ago.

The USDA said overall U.S. food price inflation for 2014, including food bought at grocery stores and food bought at restaurants, would rise by 2.5 percent to 3.5 percent in 2014.

That is up from 2013, when retail food prices were almost flat, but in line with historical norms and unchanged from April's forecast.

"The food-at-home CPI has already increased more in the first four months of 2014 then it did in all of 2013," USDA noted. At-home spending accounts for about 60 percent of the U.S. food CPI.

A major factor for rising pork prices is the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv), responsible for more than 7 million U.S. piglet deaths in the past year.

Egg prices are also climbing - up 15 percent in April alone - and are expected to rise by 5 to 6 percent on the year, and higher milk prices are feeding through to other products in the dairy case, particularly cheese.

Sweet lovers and caffeine addicts will see some relief, however, since global prices for sugar and coffee remain low, USDA said.

The agency forecast prices of sugar and sweets to rise by 1 percent to 2 percent in 2014 and prices for non-alcoholic beverages to rise by 1.5 percent to 2.5 percent. Both forecasts were lowered this month.

"It appears supermarkets are maintaining minimal price inflation on packaged food products, possibly in an effort to keep prices competitive in light of rising cost pressures for most perishable items," USDA said.

So far the severe California drought has not had a discernible impact on national fruits or vegetable prices, USDA said, while warning that the effects are still to come.

Deadly pig virus cases in U.S. projected to surge after summer
6/19/14

U.S. veterinarians are warning that outbreaks of a deadly pig virus will climb this autumn after a summertime hiatus, likely killing another 2.5 million pigs over the next 12 months and amplifying an increase in pork prices.

Concerns persist about the expected jump in infections of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv) despite assurances from U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on Wednesday that the nation is likely "on the other side" of the disease due to approval of the first vaccine directly available to farmers.

Harrisvaccines, an Iowa-based company, developed the vaccine approved by USDA this week. But Joel Harris, head of sales and marketing, said there were uncertainties about how much the vaccine will thwart PEDv in cold weather.

"There could be situations where the virus could overwhelm the immunity of the herd," he said.

The spread of PEDv, which thrives in cold and damp conditions, has slowed due to warmer temperatures after peaking in February. PEDv does not threaten humans or food safety, according to the USDA.

"There is still plenty of disease out there and it will be back with a vengeance in the fall," said Eric Neumann, a veterinarian studying the transmission of PEDv.

The fast-moving virus has killed an estimated 8 million pigs, or about 10 percent of the U.S. herd, and helped lift retail pork prices to all-time highs around $4.10 a lb since it first was discovered in the United States in April 2013. Prices could reach $4.64 by December, said Ricky Volpe, an economist for the USDA.

A renewed PEDv outbreak could mean millions of dollars more in losses for U.S. pig farmers and further damage to international trade. Already, export markets such as China, Russia and Japan have restricted imports of live U.S. pigs due to PEDv.

From July 2014 to June 2015, another 2.5 million pigs could die, said Dale Polson, a senior veterinarian for pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim, describing the outlook as "cautiously optimistic."

Immunity in pigs and the control of transmission have greater potential than the new vaccine to sway the death toll, he said.

"Vaccines can serve a purpose of boosting existing immunity," he said. "The degree to which they're capable of doing so is a bit of a black box."

The National Pork Board is urging researchers studying immunity and transmission to move quickly to prevent PEDv from coming back strong in the fall.

Some pig herds have developed repeat infections, which was not expected. Researchers know the virus is transmitted through pig feces but animal feed may be a factor, too.

The latest USDA data show 7,250 confirmed PEDv cases. The number of new cases reported under a voluntary monitoring system slowed to 138 in the week ended June 7 from 142 in the week ended May 25 and 158 the prior week.

The USDA this month ordered farmers to report new cases and pledged $26 million to fight outbreaks.

Milk Costs Most Ever to Signal Higher Prices for Pizza
9/8/14

Milk futures rose to a record as exports by the U.S. climbed amid shrinking inventories of cheese and butter, signaling higher costs for pizza and pastries.

The U.S. shipped a record 17 percent of milk production in the first half, according to Alan Levitt, a spokesman at the U.S. Dairy Export Council. Cheese stockpiles in July dropped 8 percent from a year earlier, and butter supplies tumbled 42 percent, the Department of Agriculture said last month. U.S. dairy costs are higher than world prices, signaling imports will increase, said Jon Spainhour, a partner at Rice Dairy LLC.

“Usually, we use the first six months of the year to build the inventory we’re going to sell in the last six months,” Spainhour said in a telephone interview from Chicago. “People are saying that ‘I know those imports are coming in, but in the meantime, I’ve got to make sure I’ve got enough to get on the supermarket shelf.’ ”

Milk futures for September settlement rose 0.7 percent to close at $24.45 per 100 pounds at 1:11 p.m. on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Earlier, the class III variety, used as a cheese benchmark, reached a record $24.47. The price has jumped 26 percent this year.

Dairy consumption increases in the North American autumn as U.S. football fans boost pizza orders and bakers need more butter for holiday cakes and pastries, Spainhour said.

U.S. cheese consumption will rise to a record 4.88 million metric tons in 2014, USDA data shows. Milk use will climb to an all-time high of 93.4 million tons.

“We just didn’t build the stocks we needed to, and domestic cheese buyers are still scrambling to build that inventory,” Spainhour said.

In July, retail whole milk was $3.65 a gallon, the most for the month since 2011, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

JPL: Don’t Expect Drought Relief From El Niño

PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — The anticipated blockbuster return of El Niño is looking more like it will be a flop, a climatologist said Monday.

Scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory say that unless developing weak-to-modest El Niño conditions strengthen, California will continue to stay bone dry.

El Niño describes a weather pattern involving a warming of equatorial waters in the eastern Pacific Ocean, a condition that is associated with increased rainfall on the west coast of North America. El Niño conditions in 1997 and 1998 doubled rainfall up and down California, Patzert said.

“Those very strong El Niños happen every 30 or 40 years. Most are more modest and are not good forecasters of heavy rainfall,” he said.

Patzert said that if the ’97 event was a Godzilla El Niño , the weather pattern shaping up now in the eastern Pacific is more like “El Gecko.”

“It is not going to be a drought-buster,” he said.

Low Inflation? The Price Of Ground Beef Has Risen 17 Percent Over The Past Year

Thanks to the Federal Reserve, the middle class is slowly being suffocated by rising food prices.  Every single dollar in your wallet is constantly becoming less valuable because of the inflation the Fed systematically creates.  And if you try to build wealth by saving money and earning interest on it, you still lose because thanks to the Federal Reserve's near zero interest rate policies banks pay next to nothing on savings accounts.  The Federal Reserve wants you to either spend your money or to put it in the giant **** that we call the stock market.  But when Americans spend their paychecks they are finding that they don't stretch as far as they once did.  The cost of living continues to rise at a much faster pace than wages are rising, and this is especially true when it comes to the price of food.

Yes, you ARE paying more for food
1/19/15

The idea that there's no inflation might not make much sense to plenty of ordinary people.

And yet, a report issued Friday by the Labor Department indicated that, when considered as a whole, the U.S. economy isn't seeing especially higher prices. In the past 12 months, the Consumer Price Index for all items rose 0.8%, below the year-over-year rate of 1.3% recorded in the November report and far under the 10-year average. The "core" rate, which leaves out food and energy price changes, was up 1.6% in the last 12 months. Not bad.

Of course, it all depends on how you look at it. While it's the job of professional economists to study these things, regular folks normally aren't building spreadsheets. They're concerned with eating and driving, with all the daily thinking about the world's costs in a different way. That includes spending a lot of time noticing the items that are getting pricier, especially the necessary ones like food.

And if you believe you're paying more for what you eat, you, in fact, are correct. For 2014, the index for food rose 3.4%, up from a 1.1% increase the prior year. That outpaces the food index's average annual climb of 2.7% over the last 10 years. The index for food we eat at home was up 3.7% last year, well ahead of the 0.4% increase in 2013. Regarding food eaten at restaurants and other establishments, that index rose 3% last year after a 2.1% gain in 2013.

The following numbers might be closer to what typical consumers are noticing on grocery store receipts. Note that the CPI report also offers much greater detail than this, such as pointing out that the tomato index rose 16.5%, but here are some details on various major food group index changes:

--Meats, poultry, fish, and eggs: Up 9.2% in 2014, the largest change from one December to another since 2003. In comparison, the 2013 change was 2.9%.

--Beef and veal: Up 18.7%.

--Dairy and related products: Up 5.3%.

--Fruits and vegetables: Up 3.2%. Both fell in 2013.

--Nonalcoholic drinks: Up 0.7%.

--Cereals and bakery products: Up 0.5%, the same change as the previous year.

These changes are measured with indices that date back years, starting at 100. For instance, the total food index was 245.976 in December 2014, compared with 237.869 in December 2013 -- that increase in the index is the 3.4% change. So while the percentages aren't necessarily direct translations of dollar-price changes you're recording, they're good indications of the gains nationally.

With commodities and their pricing, it's always a story of supply levels and the demand in the market. The nation's food industry has faced a number of challenges, but recent issues have included a cattle herd that's been much smaller than normal, lifting beef prices, and poor weather in the West that hindered certain crops. Relatively stable cereal and bread pricing, meanwhile, has been able to stay that way because of high wheat production, the USDA recently said.

As for why the overall CPI's rise is on the low side -- only one time in the last 50 years has a December-to-December change been less, and that was 2008 -- energy is a big factor here. That index fell 10.6% last year, with the index for gasoline dropping 21%. However, the electricity and natural gas measures were both higher.

Who pulled out the plug? The 'bathtub ring' on the banks of the Colorado river that's thousands of miles long

   Eleven of the past 14 years have been droughts for Lake Powell reservoir
   Reservoir at Arizona-Utah border is 45 per cent below 'full pool' capacity
   Lake will drop even further as it gives water to Hoover Dam's Lake Mead

3/30/15

A drought in the western United States has left water levels in the Colorado River basin far below their normal levels.

Lake Powell, a reservoir at the Arizona-Utah border, is 45 per cent below its capacity, and the lack of water has left a 'bathtub ring' at the bottom of its majestic rock formations.

The lake, from which the Colorado eventually snakes through Grand Canyon National Park, has lost 4.4 trillion gallons of water in a recent drought.

The river's basin has been experiencing the drought for eleven of the last 14 years, shrinking a reservoir that was one-fourth the size of Rhode Island when it was at 'full pool', according to National Geographic.

Scroll down for video
Lake Powell, which is the country's second-largest reservoir when it is at 'full pool' capacity, now has a white bathtub ring in its canyons from dropping water levels
+18

Lake Powell, which is the country's second-largest reservoir when it is at 'full pool' capacity, now has a white bathtub ring in its canyons from dropping water levels

The Colorado provides water for Nevada, Arizona and California, the last of which has seen large areas in 'extreme' and 'exceptional' drought levels and is trying to restrict how much water residents use.

Seven states and 40million people get water from different parts of the river's basin, which extends into the southern reaches of Wyoming.

Many climate scientists think that the Southwest is also due for a megadrought this century that would far outlast the current phenomenon.

Lake Mead, the reservoir next to Hoover Dam, shrunk to 39 per cent of its capacity last year and was at its lowest level since the dam was built in the 1930s.

To help the other reserve keep a steady supply, Lake Powell will release 8.23 million acre-feet (2.68 trillion gallons) downstream over the course of this year.

The release is estimated to lower the water level at Powell, the second largest reservoir in the country behind Mead, by another meter.

It is in danger of seeing its surface elevation fall below 1,075 feet above sea level by September, which would be the lowest level on record, set in 2005, and increase the size of its bleached white ring.

Minerals in the water turn the walls of the sandstone canyons white, according to the Weather Channel.

Egg Shortage In America As Bird Flu Has Already Killed 45 MILLION Chickens And Turkeys

Did you know that 25 percent of all egg production in the United States has already been taken offline due to the bird flu crisis?  You aren’t hearing much about this in the mainstream media, but at this point bird flu has claimed the lives of 45 million chickens and turkeys in America.  When I wrote about this a month ago, the number of dead birds was sitting at about 20 million.  In just 30 days, the death toll has risen by an astounding 20 million.  This is a major crisis and it is already causing egg shortages around the country, and yet very few people seem alarmed about this?  Why is that?

And it isn’t just one strain of the bird flu virus that we are talking about.  Right now, there are two strains which are spreading like wildfire.

So far, the H5N2 strain has hit the states of Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Arkansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin.  It has also been identified in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.

The H5N8 strain has not been doing quite as much damage yet, but it has been killing birds in California, Idaho, Indiana, Oregon and Washington.

In addition, Canadian officials have discovered that the H5N1 strain is spreading in British Columbia.

This is the worst bird flu outbreak in the history of North America, and it continues to spiral out of control.  Things have already gotten so bad that some manufacturers are considering switching to “eggless eggs”…

   America is facing a major egg crisis due to bird flu, experts have warned.

   They say 25 percent of the country’s egg production is already offline due to the virus, with more producers expecting to be hit.

   To replace eggs, manufacturers are increasingly turning a hi-tech San Francisco firm that makes an ‘eggless egg’ using a secret blend of plants.

With egg production down 25 percent at this point, and the worst probably still to come, some fast food chains are already cutting back.  For instance, Whataburger has announced that it is going to be limiting the number of hours that it serves breakfast…

   Whataburger says it is limiting its breakfast-serving hours, citing egg shortages due to the Midwest bird flu crisis.

   The fast-food chain will serve breakfast 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays, and 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. on weekends. It previously was available 12 hours a day. Whataburger says in a statement that the changes will allow it to supply all of its locations.

   The U.S. Department of Agriculture says confirmed outbreaks in the Midwest have cost chicken and turkey producers more than 44 million birds. Egg prices have soared.

   Major chains such as Taco Bell, Dunkin’ Donuts and IHOP say they’re monitoring the situation but haven’t yet been affected.

I hope that people start waking up and taking this more seriously, because this is a really big deal.

But of course of even greater concern is what would happen if the bird flu started spreading among the human population.

At this point, the CDC says that there are no human cases, but they are urging caution…

   “While these recently identified HPAI H5 viruses are not known to have caused disease in humans, their appearance in North American birds may increase the likelihood of human infection in the United States,” the CDC said.

In fact, the CDC has issued a special alert to medical professionals instructing them to watch for any signs that this virus has crossed over…

   “Clinicians should consider the possibility of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5 virus infection in persons showing signs or symptoms of respiratory illness who have relevant exposure history,” the CDC said in a health alert issued to doctors.

   “This includes persons who have had contact with potentially infected birds (e.g., handling, slaughtering, defeathering, butchering, culling, preparation for consumption); direct contact with surfaces contaminated with feces or parts (carcasses, internal organs, etc.) of potentially-infected birds; and persons who have had prolonged exposure to potentially-infected birds in a confined space.”

I know that we have had some false alarms with swine flu and ebola in the past few years.

But without a doubt, a major pandemic is one of the greatest potential threats that we face.  Throughout history, there have been massive pandemics that have killed millions upon millions of people, and scientists assure us that it is only a matter of time before the next one strikes.

Just the other day, Bill Gates spoke about his belief that a future pandemic could come along at any time and kill tens of millions of us…

   One of the world’s richest men, who spoke in 2010 about how vaccines (which he heavily pushes throughout the world) are helping to cull the world’s population, is now predicting that as many as 33 million people could soon die from a modern-day pandemic similar to the 1918-1919 Spanish flu.

   Microsoft founder Bill Gates hasn’t said how such an event will culminate, but he’s sure it will, and he’s actually spent a pretty penny working on predictive models to show what sort of event will kill the most people in the near future. It won’t be a big volcanic explosion, a gigantic earthquake, an asteroid, or even impending world war, according to Gates — at least not in his lifetime. Instead, it will be an outbreak of some horrific disease like Ebola.

Of course for many in the scientific community, a major pandemic like that would be a perfect solution to the “overpopulation problem” that they believe the world is facing.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “46 Population Control Quotes That Show How Badly The Elite Want To Wipe Us All Out“.

Most Americans seem to believe that there could never possibly be major food shortages in this country.  But in my new book, my co-author and I discuss how incredibly fragile our food chain really is.  We live at a time when the entire planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and we need to realize that it is not wise to be dependent on the “system” because the “system” is failing.

In the months ahead, we are likely to see significant shortages of eggs, chicken and turkey.  And certainly prices for all of those items will never be lower than they are right now.

So now is the time to stock up and to add to your food storage supplies.  Because once the general public starts freaking out about all of this, it will be far too late to do anything about it then.

Pale horse ghost seen in Egypt riots February 2011


Behold, a Pale Horse and its Rider’s Name Was Death  
Behold an Orange Horse and the rider’s name was Trump.  Laughing  
I just listened to Obama give Washington’s account of the situation with ISIL in Iraq and Syria.


   


Washington claims they are defeating ISIL in Iraq, but Russia and Assad are defeating the Syrian people in Syria.  Obama denounced Russia and Syria President Assad, but not ISIL, as barbaric. The message was clear: Washington still intends to overthrow Assad and turn Syria into another Libya and another Iraq, formerly stable and prosperous countries where war now rages continually.  It sickens me to hear the President of the United States lie and construct a false reality.

A global famine, sickness and death will sweep across the world and those who have not seen hunger, illness or sadness will weep. This has been foretold in the Bible.  It will happen.

Revelation 6  The Fourth Seal: Death

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale (ashen, green, chloros) horse and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.  And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
