World only has 10-week supply of wheat, expert tells UN Security Council: This is seismic
 

 
Ezekiel 5:16

When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:



NEW YORK - Global food insecurity has reached levels not seen since the financial crisis of 2008, and itís only going to get worse without aggressive intervention, a food insecurity expert told the United Nations Security Council this week.

Russiaís invasion of Ukraine "did not start a food security crisis," but it did add "fuel to a fire that was long burning," said Sara Menker, CEO of Gro Intelligence, a global company that uses artificial intelligence and public and private data to predict food supply trends.

"This isnít cyclical. This is seismic," Menker said during a special meeting of the UN Security Council. "Even if the war were to end tomorrow, our food security problem isnít going away anytime soon without concerted action."

Before the Russia-Ukraine conflict began, the two countries supplied a combined one third of the worldís wheat exports and were in the top five exporters of corn. Coupled with widespread fertilizer shortages, supply chain issues and record droughts, the world has about 10 weeks worth of wheat on hand, Menker said.

"Without aggressive global actions, we stand the risk of an extraordinary amount of human suffering and economic damage," Menker said.

War threatens global food supply

Russia claims the 10,000-plus sanctions the country is facing for its aggression toward Ukraine have disrupted routes, impeded Russian vessels from delivering goods and restricted commercial transactions because of banking difficulties.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said those claims are false.

"The decision to weaponize food is Moscowís and Moscowís alone," Blinken said. "Sanctions arenít blocking Black Sea ports, trapping ships filled with food, and destroying Ukrainian roads and railways; Russia is. Sanctions are not emptying Ukrainian grain silos and stealing Ukrainian farm equipment; Russia is."

Blinken said sanctions imposed by the U.S. and many others arenít preventing Russia from exporting food and fertilizers because they exempt exports of food, fertilizer and seeds. "And weíre working with countries every day to ensure that they understand that sanctions do not prevent the flow of these items," he said.

U.N. food chief David Beasley warned the Security Council that the war in Ukraine has created "an unprecedented crisis" of escalating food prices that are already sparking protests and riots and growing hunger. The crisis could add at least 47 million people to the 276 million "marching to starvation" before Russiaís invasion of its smaller neighbor.


The executive director of the World Food Program said 49 million people in 43 countries are already "knocking on famineís door."

Beasley recalled that when food prices got out of control in 2007 and 2008 over 40 countries faced political unrest, riots and protests.

"We are already seeing riots and protesting taking place as we speak ó Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Pakistan, Peru," he said. "Weíve seen destabilizing dynamics already in the Sahel from Burkina Faso, Mali, Chad. These are only signs of things to come."

Beasley urged world leaders to do everything possible "to bring the markets to stability because things will get worse."

Whatís causing global food insecurity?

Menker said the global food crisis can be attributed to five factors "occurring simultaneously." Combined, theyíre creating "unprecedented" challenges that will impact the worldís supply of food for several years.

Lack of fertilizer: Fertilizer prices have nearly tripled over the past year ó and quadrupled over the past two years ó Menker said, thanks to supply chain issues, restrictions on natural gas and export restrictions amid the Russia-

Ukraine war. The fertilizer shortage could significantly reduce crop yields for big suppliers like the United States, Brazil and western Europe later this year and into next year, "severely impacting global food security and inflation for three-to-five years at a minimum," Menker said.

Climate change: Global drought conditions for wheat are the worst theyíve been in 20 years around the world, Menker said. "Major breadbaskets" like the U.S. and Brazil, the worldís two largest exporters of agricultural product, are also experiencing extreme droughts.

Cooking oil shortage: The price of palm oil has nearly tripled in the last two years, Menker said, and the world has lost 75% of sunflower oil exports to the war in Ukraine. China has also notably increased the amount of cooking oil it imports.

Grain shortage: Russia and Ukraine accounted for a third of the worldís wheat exports before the conflict began. Now, the world is seeing record low grain levels on top of fertilizer shortages, supply chain issues and droughts.

Supply chain/logistical bottlenecks: Supply chain issues created by the pandemic have been exacerbated by the Russia-Ukraine war. "All Ukrainian ports remain closed, making it impossible to move any of Ukraineís harvested grain across its borders," Menker said. "Shifting to rail will move less than 10% of pre-war flow. Itís not enough."


"Itís a once-in-a-generation occurrence that can dramatically reshape the geopolitical era," Menker said. "We cannot solve food insecurity on a national scale anywhere. While the next few years will likely be difficult, we can coordinate a global response."

And that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. People forget that the supply chain has BEEN fu*ked up, noticeably at the start of the pandemic, but even beforehand. But hey, what do we know...

My thing donít be quoting the Bible like this GOD way of fulfilling a prophesy. Then u saying it like itís the end of the World. Your promoting it like it isnít any but thatís a false narrative.

Saying itís hard to believe and calling
It wrong is two different things. You need to have some factual info to why you think itís wrong. If you presented facts on who you are and someone says theyíre pretty sure you a homos*xual with aids but could be wrong . Would you think itís a logical statement?

The thread title is a bit misleading

Each country has itís own supply

Some can last a few months

Some canít last a week

The article itself is on point and worth reading

First off, I'll quote whatever the fu*k I want to quote. Secondly, it IS fulfillment of prophecy. Just because there is a famine doesn't mean there isn't any food available, it just means there is very little. Furthermore if you knew like I know, a global famine IS going to occur both through natural means and through the elites pulling strings to make it happen. You'd better hope you aren't one of the ones who starve to death.

Lamentations 4:8-9
8 Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.
9 They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.
