New Global Famines: 20 Million Will Starve To Death In 6 Months
More than 20 million people are now said to be at risk of starvation within the next six months. This would be the result of four unique famines. This all according to U.N. World Food Programme chief economist Arif Husain.
According to a new article published on Reuters, wars in Yemen, Nigeria, and Sudan are fuel for the massive cases of impending starvations. A drought in Africa has destroyed the agriculture.
“In my not quite 15 years with the World Food Programme, this is the first time that we are literally talking about famine in four different parts of the world at the same time,” he told Reuters in an interview.
“It’s almost overwhelming to comprehend that in the 21st-century people are still experiencing famines of such magnitude. We’re talking about 20 million people, and all this within the next six months, or now. Yemen is now, Nigeria is now, South Sudan is now,” he said.
“Somalia, when I look at the indicators in terms of extremely high food prices, falling livestock prices and agricultural wages, it’s going to come pretty fast.”
The demand for reliance on philanthropy is going to be insanely high, probably higher than the world can supply. So people will ultimately be left to survive on their own, in places without water or food supplies, possibly amidst embattled regions deep in civil wars. I realize that we don’t live in Africa, but to believe you could never be placed in harm’s way due to natural disasters, wars or uprisings or weather phenomenons such as droughts or floods is to be naive. The world has never been so precarious. This is why I strongly encourage everyone to learn how to build a cheap survival bag, or, Bug Out Bag.
You can never be too prepared. Do you have water purification tablets on hand? They are inexpensive on Amazon.
Our society is unhinged. The pharmaceutical industry has everyone addicted to painkillers and antidepressants. People are beginning to appear to act as if they are zombies. They are reluctant to fight for change, they are obtuse to the obvious indicators of subjugation.
And then there is geoengineering which likely is causing the droughts in Africa. The northeast recently experienced some of its most lopsided February weather on record. One day was spring time conditions, the next was full-on winter. “Weather whiplash,” it is now being termed by researchers such as Dane Wigington at GeoengineeringWatch.org.
When will the masses figure out that we all survive together? We can’t make it if 80% of our people are subjugated by Government propaganda and pharmaceutical companies.
So what can we do? We can take the responsibility of preparation into our own hands and stop our dependence on the government. If we are placed in a position to rely on handouts, we will be enslaved by the system. Once your leverage is gone, you lose the battle. And this is exactly how the system wants it to work. They want our society to rely on food stamps, socialized healthcare, vouchers and shelters. Because they know they can pull the rug out from under us at any point.
And if disaster strikes, the situation is even worse because then we have nothing. When you can’t filter water for yourself or you can’t utilize your own food sources, or you can’t start a fire to cook raw meat or heat your home, you become susceptible to the enslavement of government handouts.
