Researchers pushing the climate change/sustainability agenda have released a new report replete with dire predictions about devastating food shortages and famines in the coming years. If humans don’t change course, they say – and by humans, they’re presumably referring to multinational corporations that are raping, pillaging, and polluting our world – then masses of people might starve and society could collapse.
The report by Lloyd’s, entitled Food System Shock, is chock full of scary but typical scenarios – too many people on the planet, not enough food, and that pesky global warming that’s always looming on the horizon. Whatever the actual set of real circumstances, it’s clear that the analysis is focused on rapidly changing the way the world operates in order to avoid a major catastrophe. Referring to food production in terms of “global supply,” the researchers involved with the report warn that future climate trends bode ominous for generating enough food for everyone to eat. They say that the food “system” is “under chronic pressure to meet an ever-rising demand, and its vulnerability to acute disruptions is compounded by factors such as climate change, water stress, ongoing globalization and heightening political instability.” MORE
