Thai Rice Prices Jump As Global Food Crisis Reignites
Expensive rice will pressure many of the world's households that rely on the grain. The problem with rice is that it's a staple, and rising prices could fuel discontent or, worse, food riots. What's more alarming is that the Food and Agriculture Organization's food price index, which tracks international prices of the top traded food commodities worldwide, remains at levels associated with triggering the Arab Spring, a series of anti-government protests across the Middle East in the early 2010s.

Crushed Bug ‘Additive’ is Now Included in Pizza, Pasta & Cereals Across the EU
house crickets are on the menu for Europeans across the continent, without the vast majority of them knowing it is now in their food.


Udder Nonsense - diapers and masks for cowd
Let’s give the yogurt scientists the benefit of the doubt and say that their end-to-end solution really does trap all methane released and that the net effect will make life on this world better. Any serious researcher would ask, “At what cost?” The diapers are no doubt made from paper, cloth, and/or plastic products. What are the environmental considerations in the energy required for their production? At some point, they will be retired and buried in the ground. What is the environmental implication of burying millions of cow masks and diapers annually? If they are made of cloth, how much energy will be required to heat water to wash them? How much will the newest cow fashion add to the price of the final products? Will people on the lower end of the financial spectrum be pushed out of the Danone yogurt market to make the elite feel a little better about their yogurt choices?

The Mainstream Media Admits That We Are Facing "The Worst Food Crisis In Modern History"
Maybe the UN should take the money they are using to facilitate and subsidize both human and drug trafficking across the southern border of the USA and use it to help those who are starving around the world > UN officials are doing what they can to help, but the truth is that they are being absolutely overwhelmed by the scope of this crisis.

China Now Grows More Corn Than Rice
This doesn't mean that Chinese people are necessarily eating a lot more corn but rather that their livestock is hungry for the grain as much as some of their vehicles and machines are to consume corn in the form of ethanol fuel.

Avian Flu Is Crushing Farmers, by Salena Zito
"The biosecurity measures all of the farmers infected or not, like not having visitors on your properties — covering your workers from head to toe in bio suits and constantly and meticulously disinfecting equipment, clothing, buildings, walls, tires — is expensive and mind-numbing," he said. "Even the simplest thing such as a fertilizer truck or a delivery from UPS or Amazon or your children's school bus can track the disease onto a farm and destroy their flocks, their income and their family's legacy."

USDA Reveals US Corn-Harvested Acres At 2008 Levels Amid Megadrought
The unexpected cut to US harvested corn acres means grain supplies are a lot tighter than realized. A report Thursday showed the corn area in the world's largest producer is at the smallest since 2008 with crops failing in states such as Texas and Nebraska. That's due to persistent drought conditions in the western part of the country that could also hit harvests for wheat plants that are currently dormant for the winter

US Government Approves World's First Vaccine for Honeybees
“They’ve approved a vaccine for bees? Tell us again how depopulation ISN’T the agenda? 1/3rd of our food supply relies on bees. 1/2 of the fibers, oils and other raw materials require bees. Pesticides are one-factor causing bee decline. No, get a vaccine.”

Will The European Union Ban Or Tax Meat Production?
A handful of European countries have legally binding net-zero plans for emissions and climate metrics, and the Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark are small countries with large agricultural footprints. Small landmass with heavy agriculture industry makes for an easy target. The Dutch, like the Swedes and the Danes, are very serious about reducing emissions, as well as limiting meat consumption. The problem is they consume and produce lots of meat. In Haarlem, a city west of Amsterdam, they have banned meat advertisements starting in 2024. Treating meat like cigarettes or alcohol to impose meat alternatives on consumers so consumers can eat highly processed fake meat products, or rely on imported meat, is a major turning point in reason and rationale.

Shortage Fears Spike As Some Costco And Walmart Stores Run Out Of Eggs
Avian flu has decimated the US egg-laying hen population at commercial farms. Tens of millions of hens have been culled to prevent one of the worst bird flu outbreaks on record from spreading, though efforts have failed as the virus continues to decimate US egg production, sending retail prices sky-high.

cross-posted from: https://exploding-heads.com/post/70087 > In recent years, the number of newborns in China has dropped significantly while more and more foreign companies are moving their supply chains out of the country. This reflects a declining demand for infant formula and a declining workforce in the country.

Citrus farmers are certainly hoping for the best. Orange production is way down. Florida had 2 Hurricanes this year, record-breaking heat and drought, and now several days of very frigid weather ahead. N. Florida won't see highs above 40 for 6 days. Lows in 20s for several days.


Fire crews from 29 departments took part in the battle to put out the flames.

“Once operational, the 200,000-square-foot facility will be the largest cultivated meat production center in the world with the capacity to produce at least 10,000 metric tons of cultivated meat, without the need to slaughter a single animal. This is a watershed moment for the cultivated meat industry that will allow BELIEVER Meats to meet growing demand for decades to come.”

November advance in prices for final demand goods was led by a 38.1-percent jump in the index for fresh and dry vegetables. The index for fresh vegetables (except potatoes) jumped 43.1 percent. Prices for raw milk and for nonferrous metal ores also advanced.

“That food, produced with care by British farmers, is critical to our nation’s security and success. But British food is under threat,” she added. “We have already seen the egg supply chain crippled under the pressure caused by these issues and I fear the country is sleepwalking into further food supply crises, with the future of British fruit and vegetable supplies in trouble. We need government and the wider supply chain to act now—tomorrow could well be too late.”

The fires now in December are just two of several in autumn and winter. In August, 500 pigs burned inside a barn in Klepp på Jæren . A few days later , 300 pigs died in a fire at Bøttum in Ringsaker. Two months later, 150 cattle lost their lives in a large fire at Byrkjelo in Gloppen . In November, a barn in Gausdal caught fire and 90 cattle were lost.

cross-posted from: https://exploding-heads.com/post/65690 > “Germany bans farmers from properly fertilizing land to serve EU green agenda,” declares Breitbart.com. “As of Thursday, the use of nitrate fertilisers has been greatly restricted for large swathes of farmland in North Rhine-Westphalia,” the site reports, referring to one of the most abundant food production areas in Germany. > > The ban originates with EU bureaucrats waging war on nitrogen, the essential element that makes up nearly 80% of Earth’s atmosphere and is critical for crop production. After having declared war on carbon — the building block of biological life — globalists are now targeting nitrogen as a means to deliberately engineer widespread famine and mass death (depopulation).
