This is happening daily pretty much everywhere and things will only get worse. People are going to be financially unable to use their cars very soon and will have to think of different ways to get around such as biking, buses, trains and walking. Things are never going back to ‘normal’ when it comes to this.
This is not being reported on as much as it should me. This water is used by millions in the US Southwest. If I lived in that area I would get out sooner rather than later. There is going to be no water there in10-20 years. Maybe even sooner than that.
Monkeypox is spreading so quickly that they fear that it may already be aerosolized. Meaning that you can catch it from sneezes and coughs. Some governments are starting to tell people not to worry. This means that you should actually start to worry a little about this. A second pandemic within five years?
CO2 levels right now are 50% higher than they were during pre-industrial times. We are all pretty much screwed and on track to making ourselves go extinct. We should have never climbed out of the trees.
Due to poor harvests in the US, India, Italy and just about everywhere else wheat prices are going to continue to climb. The war in Ukraine is only adding to the issue. If you do a lot of baking start prepping sooner rather than later. Things are only going to get worse.
Thankfully the cases are of the West African strain, which is milder than the Congo strain. However, people who have compromised immune systems, such as myself, will get it worse. This is slowly shaping into yet another pandemic. Since just about every country mucked up how they handled the corona virus I am not holding much hope that they will deal with this one in a better manner. Remember, capitalism is more important than the lives of people.
California is pretty much screwed. The central valley, where most of the state’s food is grown, is turning into desert because the water supply is quickly running out. Small towns in the valley have run out of water and have to have it shipped in so that they can wash and cook. Also, California grows a lot of fresh produce that is shipped to the rest of the country and beyond. Food prices are going to soar this summer.
Before I start this week’s list I would really like to talk about the school shooting in Texas. It’s disgusting what happened and it proves that all cops are cowardly bastards. Gun laws in the United States need to be more harsh, so that insecure incel men can’t easily purchase guns right after they turn 18. If there had been a waiting period those little kids would probably still be alive right now. The United States has an angry incel terrorist issue that needs to be taken seriously by their government.
A food insecurity expert has given this warning to the UN, so you know that this is a very serious issue. Wheat production in both Russia and Ukraine usually equals a full 1/3 of the world’s supply, so the war going on right now is halting production and blocking the exporting of this grain. Putin would rather starve the world than pull out of Ukraine. Tells you all that you need to know about the evil prick.
New Zealand is the biggest exporter of chinook salmon. In fact 85% of the world’s supply comes from there. Right now these farmed fish are dying off in huge numbers because the water is growing too hot for them to survive in. It’s climate change in real time.
The prices of basic food items, such as pasta, bread and minced beef are going through the roof. This is happening pretty much everywhere right now. Tons of people are starting to use food banks so that they can have more than one meal a day and to feed their children. This is only going to get worse as the months go by.
I’ve decided to start a weekly feature all about the apocalyptic crap that is going on around us; weather disasters, famine, disease, and economic meltdowns have all been in the news lately. I will give a link, my opinion on the subjects that I present and give the reasons as to why we should all be concerned. We can’t reach our post-apocalyptic Shangri-la without having to crawl through the muck first.
You read that right, Italy’s longest river, the Po, is producing so little water that the wheat growing region of Northern Italy is in threat of collapsing. This region alone produces something like 40% of Italy’s GDP. Not to mention how much of Europe relies on this wheat. Most of the pasta in Europe comes from Italy so if this growing region totally dies the price of wheat is going to go insanely high, higher than it is already.
Why is this happening? Because the Alps are not receiving enough snow. Not enough snow, then there is not enough water. Plus, on top of all of that the permafrost and glaciers that once covered the mountains are almost gone. This is also happening to the Colorado River in the United States. We should all be concerned about this because where are all the people from these areas going to go once the water is gone?
Mother nature is very, very angry with us right now. The news on this is changing pretty much on a daily basis, but from what I have read there are 2 different versions of this, one with a 1% fatality rate and the other is at 10-15%. There is a ton of info saying it is spread by both sex and droplets. It is related to smallpox. If you were born after 1972 you never got a smallpox vaccine which means you may be more prone to catching monkey pox. Keep your fingers crossed that this will not turn into yet another worldwide pandemic.
