WORLD FAMINE LOOMING ?
WORLD FAMINE LOOMING?
Did you know that Australia’s rice crop last year (which
helps supply the world) was only 2 percent of previous
harvests? Yes, you read that right – a mere 2 percent.
Worldwide, food is going to be short.
Did you hear the shocking news that the loss of fish
stocks worldwide may be as high as 90 percent? (Hauraki

THREE YEARS’ RESERVE DOWN TO ONE DAY
The government of the United States, by Law was to
always maintain a three year mixed- grain survival
storage for every man, woman, and child in the
Consequently, there used to be enough grain in storage
to last the masses inside the United States for three
full years, if need be. But now it all is but gone!
By 1996, the United States Department of Agriculture
(U.S.D.A.) claimed that there was enough food in
ware-house storage to last every man, woman and child
in the cities a 3 day supply and a 5 day supply for
every man, woman, and child in the countryside,
should a great national emergency occur.
In other words, if food trucks stopped running, the
food supplies for the masses would be 3 days in the
cities and 5 days in the countryside.
Then in 2003, the U.S.D.A. stopped measuring "days
in reserve" of food because the amount of food in
storage dropped to under a 1 day food supply for
every man, woman, and child in the United States.
Instead, the calculation is now how many pounds are
in the food-chain per person.
In 2003, there was 77 pounds of food per person in
the warehouse food-chain in the United States.
What this means, is that during a national emergency,
only 77 pounds of food per person is available before
all food is TOTALLY GONE in the United States.
By September of 2005, this was down to 15.7 pounds
of reserved foodstuffs – an 80% decrease in two
Of the 15.7 pounds of warehoused reserved food-stuffs,
11.0 pounds of the 15.7 pounds consists of unprocessed
The rest of the 15.7 pounds of survival foods in
storage for every man, woman, and child, totalling
4.7 pounds, consists of the following foods:
1. Non-fat dry milk 2. Cheese 3. Corn by the
bushel 4. Peanuts by the pound 5. Lentils by the
pound (The U.S.D.A. Crop Production Report,
September 12, 2005)
The situation is more critical in 2008.
And what ever country you live in, at least in the
West, you can be certain that a similar food supply
FOOD LAND SHRINKING
Just to feed the addition to the world population
each year would take some 640 square miles of good
The problem is that although tropical forests in
the Amazon region, Indonesia, and the Congo are being
chopped down for timber and to create farmland, the
amount of farmland around the world has been shrinking
through desertification – not growing.
We are on the verge of an unprecedented global food
shortage. Food prices worldwide have risen 40% since
mid-2007. You will see food prices skyrocket soon.
The cost of rice has doubled in just 5 weeks.
Our ancestors were very wise, honest and full of common
sense. They had food cellars where they had food canned,
that could last them well over a year, insuring them that
they would be able to plant a crop the following summer,
and still be able to survive waiting for crops to mature
Advice is being given by a number of wide-awake news
watchers, to pull your head out of the sand, check your
food supplies, and if you do not have 6 months to a
year’s food in reserve, then you had best sell something
or do whatever you have to do, to immediately prepare
yourself and your loved ones for safety.
They advise if you can store two years at this time:
DO IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
Just as important, if you live in a big city, it is
time to start arranging to move out – while you still
What will happen after that? Watch carefully. There
are some interesting times ahead.
