Guaranteed: There will be hunger for everyone

Guaranteed: There will be hunger for everyone

“The head of the UN has warned that we are heading towards an ‘unprecedented global hunger crisis’ and people in Africa are already dying of hunger. For several months I have been documenting the signs of severe food shortages, and now they have begun. Of course, there are many reasons why we are facing such a dire situation. Weather conditions around the planet are completely out of control, the Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on global supply chains, and events in Ukraine are severely limiting the flow of agricultural resources from one of the world’s key breadbaskets. Unfortunately, what we have experienced so far is just the tip of the iceberg.

On Friday, UN chief António Guterres publicly warned that there would be an “unprecedented global hunger crisis.”

In other words, Guterres claims that humanity will face something that none of us have ever seen before. He also openly admits that 2023 “could be even worse” than 2022:

“There is a real risk that a global famine will be declared in 2022,” he said in a video message to officials from dozens of countries gathered in Berlin. “And 2023 could be even worse.”

In fact, it’s safe to say that 2023 will definitely be worse than 2022 based on the information we have at the moment.

In some parts of the world, things are already quite bad. In Somalia, for example, one deeply distressed mother lost four of her children to starvation.

If reading this doesn’t make you incredibly sad, you should check to see if you still have a heart.

What is even more tragic is that countless other people will soon die of starvation in Somalia, the situation has also worsened significantly in Ethiopia and Kenya:

“More than 200,000 people in Somalia are facing “catastrophic famine, a sharp increase from a forecast of 81,000 people in April,” the UN agencies said in a joint statement, noting that this year’s humanitarian response plan is only funded by eighteen%.

In drought-stricken regions of Ethiopia, the number of children treated for the most severe form of malnutrition jumped 27% in the first quarter of this year compared to last year, according to UNICEF. The increase was 71% in Kenya, where MSF reported at least 11 deaths as part of a malnutrition treatment program earlier this year in one county.

I have always warned that the poorest parts of the world will suffer the most.
But as food shortages intensify, Western countries will also feel the pain.

The biggest problem is, simply put, all the food that is not going to be grown this year. The prices of many fertilizers have risen by about three times compared to last year, and this will greatly affect agricultural production around the planet.

So buckle up and hold on tight because things are about to get really crazy.”
