That Breath That You Just Took, That's A Gift

"Every morsel of food, every sip of water, the air we breathe is the result of work done by other species. Nature gives us everything we need to survive. So respecting and preserving nature is key to our own survival."

30 years ago I learned the truth about the world from three brilliant mentors. Tesla.. Einstein level thinkers. 

Their explanation was simple: "Every morsel of food, every sip of water, the air we breathe is the result of work done by other species. Nature gives us everything we need to survive. So respecting and preserving nature is key to our own survival."

When you go deep sea diving you become aware that the Oxygen is life. But on land our Oxygen tank is invisible. We take it for grant it, but it's not guaranteed.

Therefore "Climate Change" should be called "Food Security" or "Life Support". It doesn't matter if you live near the coast or anywhere a tornado would hit. 

IN the past 60 days there have been 35 “never seen before” events. Total crop destruction in Australia, Nebraska, Missouri, Viet Nam, Iran, Malawi, Mozambique, Guatemala, Zimbabwe, Pakistan and Iran. 

In Nigeria floods ruin crops for 100,000 farmers.

In Myanmar floods destroyed some 972,000 acres of standing crops -- most of all paddy rice -- 36,000 acres of fish and shrimp ponds, and an estimated 20,000 head of cattle. 

In Bangladeshi farmers drown in debt as floods destroy crops. 700,000 farmers have been affected by flooding, which destroyed about $60 million worth of crops.

Heavy rains and flooding have affected nine Afghan provinces in March alone, with another seven provinces under heavy snowfall, causing avalanches and mudslides. Over 100,000 people were affected and casualties numbered 700, as 16,000 houses were destroyed. The floods damaged irrigation canals and water systems, including wells, catchment areas and water reservoirs. With the flood water level at half a metre higher than normal, buildings in the river basin areas were at risk of collapse. 

Due to the enormous uncertainties surrounding global climate change, estimates of cropland reductions vary widely--from 10 to 50 percent. But this much is clear: global warming is likely to alter production of rice, wheat, corn, soybeans, and potatoes--staples for billions of people and major food crops in both North America and Africa.

The release of chlorofluorocarbons has severely depleted the atmosphere's protective ozone layer. This study suggests that a 25-percent depletion in the ozone layer could reduce soybean yields by 20 percent.

Unlike soybeans, some crops may be more tolerant of ultraviolet radiation. Disease rates in rice also have increased when rice is exposed to higher ultraviolet radiation than normal.

Mozambique is recovering from Cyclone Idai— the Southern Hemisphere’s deadliest storm, which made landfall March 15. The storm brought massive flooding and resulted in 468 deaths in the country thus far. No food, no water: After Cyclone Idai, mounting confusion, hunger and grief in Mozambique. Cyclone death toll above 750; fighting disease.

Hundreds are dead, and more than 150,000 have reportedly fled historic flooding in the southern Indian state of Kerala. The rains are the result of a relentless, seemingly stuck monsoon, which is causing the worst flooding the state has seen in decades, if not longer.

We're witnessing something that has never happened before in the history of Kerala... Almost all dams are now opened. Most of our water treatment plants are submerged. Motors are damaged."

Higher waters are already hitting home in the United States, the report said. Cities like Norfolk, Va.; Baltimore; Charleston, S.C.; and Miami experience flooding on sunny days due to rising sea levels. Rising water threatens roads, railways, ports, sanitation systems, tourism, agriculture, power plants and underground cables that connect the internet.

Recently a million acres of midwest farmland was wiped out. Hundreds of thousands of heads of drugged cattle and feces decaying in the rain. Flood waters pouring this toxic soup into the drinking water stream. 

A breeding ground for new insects and viruses. Fungus and other communicable airborne diseases for which there is no defense. Lifting decades of RoundUp from the soil, making it impossible to replant. 

Now... Chinese Hog Farms ‘Panic’ as Swine Virus Shrinks Herds. 150 million pigs may be slaughtered. The country’s productive sow herds slumped 21 percent on year in March after a 19 percent drop in February, ministry data showed. As well as leading to a surge in pork prices, the epidemic could also cut demand for soybeans, an animal feed ingredient, where China is the world’s largest importer. China’s soybean imports in the year to September may fall to 85-86 million tons, below the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 88 million ton forecast.

How does this effect you? Look around. 

Do you see any local farms any more? 

All food is flown in, then shipped in trucks, via multiple transfer points to your local store. 

That's why we have blueberries year round. Bread that lasts for weeks. Frozen foods that nuke into meals in seconds. Fish from Chile. Chopped salads with dressings and cheese and nuts no washing to chopping from bag too table. 

Can't believe it's butter because it's not. 

Your eggs are cracked and poured from a bottle. 

No need to separate whites from yolk. 

Prices will skyrocket. We will compete with other economies just to put food on the table.

The entire corn crop was wiped out in the US just as summer gas blends demand ethanol. We will have to import the corn, and all of us will play $1 more per gallon at the pump.

I promise you, it's worse than you think.

According to a press release by WEF, “Water security links together food, energy, climate, economic growth and human security challenges, which the world economy will face over the next two decades…. The world is now on the verge of water bankruptcy in many places with no way of paying the debt back.” Do not forget the role water plays in every aspect of the global economy.

At 1.2 Celsius global temperature rise the world’s climate since the beginning of the Industrial Age is already destabilizing the ecosystem and a mass extinction of animals has begun, killing 200 species a day. There are widespread die offs of ocean and fresh water fish. We are marking an accelerating loss of ice in the polar caps, the beginning of significant release of carbon sinks that store millions of years of carbon reabsorbed into the Earth. Forests are one of these ecological systems. They are now suffering megafires and vast tracts dying off from beetle infestations and other diseases.

The world is already heading to an apocalyptic 3 Celsius scenario by 2030 if not sooner.

When we pass 2C we’ll already have a climate that can’t produce grain to the scale we need to feed 8 to 9 billion people expected to burden and overconsume the resources of Earth at the rate of triple the resources Earth has.

That means we cannot sustain these human population numbers. That means the vast majority of us are now slated for death by famine. When oceans rise and grain crops fail, the world’s population will be catastrophically reduced from 8 to 9 billion to 1 billion or less early in the 2030s.

This is a very real picture of our not-too-distant future, a future filled with famines, political chaos, economic collapse, fierce resource competition, and a sun that “cooks us.”

No corner of the planet will go untouched by climate change. No one is immune.

As we fulfill the direst prophecies of Nostradamus about global famine.
