  • Restricting the drilling and production of natural gas in the US and Western Europe has lead to a shortage of Natural Gas. This, in turn, has led to shutting down NatGas dependent Fertilizer plants. Since 1/2 of 3rd world agriculture depends upon this fertilizer, food production is threatened. Next year we will see Global Food Shortages.

    The year after will see GLOBAL FAMINE on an unprecedented scale.
