Future Food Shortages

Using Steven Gibbs HDR, I have seen many trails and tribulations in the days ahead. Many of these have to do with a tragic global famine that will soon be upon us. The tragedy comes from the massive loss of life.

Perhaps some people might wonder what causes the famine. I believe that one problem that nobody talks about is how farms function. They are very dependant on petroleum products like diesel fuel to run the tractors and propane to dry the corn. The future propane problem is that if you do not have LPG gas in the storage tanks you cannot dry the grain and it becomes moldy and spoils. So essentially a lack of propane gas destroys the entire system.

Few people know that our stockpiles of grain are at their lowest level in years - any disruption could cause a panic in the pantry.
