This article was originally published by Mike Adams at Natural News under the title: EMERGENCY ALERT: On the heels of rail carriers canceling grain shipments, CF Industries warns that FERTILIZER rail shipments are now being halted during spring planting
As you may recall, ten days ago I warned that rail carriers were declaring “force majeure” and halting shipments of grain to dairy herds and other cow herds across America. In that announcement, I also warned that this was an engineered collapse of the food supply, where rail carriers were essentially being ordered to drop certain loads in order to maximize the coming wave of food scarcity and famine.
Now, devastating news from CF Industries — one of the largest fertilizer producers in the world — confirms the engineered food collapse plan is being expanded to include fertilizer shipments.
According to an April 14th announcement from CF Industries, Union Pacific is halting the delivery of fertilizer shipments right in the middle of peak planting season for farmers. CF Industries warns that, “railroad-mandated shipping reductions [will] result in nitrogen fertilizer shipment delays during the spring application season and that it [will] be unable to accept new rail sales involving Union Pacific for the foreseeable future.”
Even more alarmingly, CF Industries warns that “it is one of only 30 companies to face these restrictions.”
This means that Union Pacific is essentially dropping fertilizer shipments and grain shipments all across America. Put another way, America’s food infrastructure is being deliberately shut down.
The implications of this are nothing short of catastrophic. It affects not just fertilizer but also DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) which is necessary for all tractors, transportation trucks, construction equipment, and other machinery that use diesel engines. As CF Industries explains:
CF Industries ships to customers via Union Pacific rail lines primarily from its Donaldsonville Complex in Louisiana and its Port Neal Complex in Iowa. The rail lines serve key agricultural areas such as Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, and California. Products that will be affected include nitrogen fertilizers such as urea and urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) as well as diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), an emissions control product required for diesel trucks. CF Industries is the largest producer of urea, UAN, and DEF in North America, and its Donaldsonville Complex is the largest single production facility for the products in North America.
Without DEF, you can’t run tractors. And to the “Green New Deal” lunatics who think that halting all diesel engines will magically make the world green (while they absurdly try to suck all the CO2 out of the atmosphere, which will kill all plants, by the way), you’re about to experience the starvation, chaos, and violence that comes from shutting down agriculture. Good luck to all.
Spring crops will FAIL across North America if they don’t get nitrogen
This engineered halting of fertilizer shipments appears to be timed to severely disrupt spring planting across North America. This is consistent with what we have all observed with Joe Biden’s deliberate shutdown of America’s energy infrastructure which began on day one of Biden’s fake “presidency” when he signed a stack of executive orders shutting down energy pipelines.
From that very first day, Joe Biden and his handlers (Obama) have been meticulously deconstructing America’s food and energy infrastructure, causing shortages and price inflation. Yet as prices and scarcity, both continue to worsen, Jen Psaki says it’s all “Putin’s fault” as a convenient cover story.
The truth is that fake president Joe Biden is trying to plunge America into mass starvation, food riots, and chaos. The shutting down of energy, food, and fertilizer transportation is just one small part of this nefarious plan.
CF Industries president Tony Will reveals how fertilizer is being selectively targeted:
“The timing of this action by Union Pacific could not come at a worse time for farmers,” said Tony Will, president, and chief executive officer, CF Industries Holdings, Inc. “Not only will fertilizer be delayed by these shipping restrictions, but additional fertilizer needed to complete spring applications may be unable to reach farmers at all. By placing this arbitrary restriction on just a handful of shippers, Union Pacific is jeopardizing farmers’ harvests and increasing the cost of food for consumers.”
In the understatement of the year, CF Industries also points out that without nitrogen fertilizer, crop yields “will be lower,” saying:
The application of nitrogen fertilizer is critical to maximizing crop yields. If farmers are unable to secure all the nitrogen fertilizer that they require in the current season because of supply chain disruptions such as rail shipping restrictions, the Company expects yield will be lower. This will likely extend the timeline to replenish global grains stocks.
In truth, without nitrogen fertilizer, crop yields will be nothing short of catastrophic.
Perhaps that’s why China has been buying up all the grain supplies around the world, stockpiling like mad in anticipation of a global food collapse that’s being engineered.
A perfect storm of black swan events spell FOOD DOOM on a global scale
If 2020 – 2021 was the “covid” chapter of global collapse, 2022 – 2023 is going to be the “famine” chapter. A convergence of black swan events is spelling out the absolute certainty of global food scarcity and mass famine. Some of those events include:
- The unleashing of economic sanctions against Russia, halting Russia’s ability to export fertilizer and food crops such as wheat.
- The Grand Solar Minimum sun cycle is producing lower levels of solar radiation that will reach the surface of the Earth for the next several years, leading to global crop failures (and, historically, the fall of nations and empires).
- Unbounded money printing by the Federal Reserve, leading to rapid devaluation/collapse of the value of the dollar vs. food.
- Skyrocketing food inflation, which the UN’s FAO now puts at 12.6% month over month, means food prices will double every six months at this rate of inflation.
- US government programs that are paying farmers to destroy crops, deliberately contribute to food scarcity.
- Skyrocketing diesel fuel prices, which raise the cost of inputs for farming because farms run on diesel equipment. Transportation of crops is also carried out by diesel trucks.
- Climate change lunatics are trying to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, which will starve food crops and devastate global yields since CO2 is the key nutrient that plants need to grow (even more than they need nitrogen).
The upshot of all this is abundantly clear:
- Accelerating food inflation. Food prices will, without question, double by the end of 2022 and may actually go much higher. Food prices will almost certainly double again in 2023.
- As food prices skyrocket, food riots will break out worldwide. This has already begun in Sri Lanka, Peru, and other nations, and it will only spread globally.
- Later in 2022, food riots will break out in the USA, first appearing in Democrat-run “blue” cities and then spreading.
- In 2023, we are certain to see food rationing and price controls both demanded and enforced by governments around the world, including the US government.
- Widespread food insecurity will lead to global uprisings and revolutions. Nations will fall. Sri Lanka is already in default on its dollar bonds and facing the toppling of its political leadership, and we’re not even out of April yet.
- In response to the rising chaos, governments will declare national emergencies and roll out police state controls to try to control the masses. China’s brutal lockdown of 25+ million people in Shanghai is an early preview of things to come on a global scale.
Most importantly, people who do not have alternative sources of food will likely starve. This means you either need to store food or learn how to grow food. Ideally, you’ll have capabilities in both categories. This is what’s going to keep you alive.
I understand there are some people who, when faced with this bad news, resort to saying things like, “I can’t handle any more bad news. I choose to pretend that the food supply will be fine.” To those people, I would beg you to reconsider your stance, because you can’t pretend to be not starving when you are starving. The food scarcity will shock people back to reality if they’ve been living in a delusional dream world. (There’s no such thing as transstarvationism, just like there’s no such thing as transgenderism. You can’t actually change your gender, and you can’t actually live without eating.)
Anyone who chooses to ignore this engineered food collapse will likely starve.
Some interviews and podcasts you need to hear
For starters, listen to my recent interview with Ben Davidson, an expert on space weather who warns about the effects of solar cycles on crops:
David DuByne’s interview was also extremely informative, where he covered the effects of the Grand Solar Minimum on crop yields, warning about famine cycles throughout history:
I don’t have a recent interview with him, but the Ice Age Farmer is also offering excellent analysis of the food scarcity situation. In an interview from last year, he warned that “engineered food scarcity” was being implemented to starve the world:
Here’s an important video from David DuByne (ADAPT 2020) from yesterday:
Here’s my “planned starvation” podcast warning from April 6th, which explains what’s happening with grain deliveries being halted by rail carriers:
On April 4th, I also warned about food hyperinflation and the food riots that are already spreading around the world:
If you want to learn how to grow a lot of food in a small amount of space, learn from Marjory Wildcraft: ICanGrowFood.com
Here’s my latest interview with Marjory:
I also expect to be posting a podcast update this weekend, covering the halting of fertilizer deliveries via rail.
the biden plan is to get as many illegal aliens into the country to eat up the food supplies.
I couldn’t or wouldn’t have predicted this happening, but then again I’m not surprised at what is happening because of these communist democrats. I’m not so worried about my self, but I’m more worried about my family, what will happen to them. Especially the grand kids and great grand kids.
Pssssst! GOP is in on it too.
Sins of the people and nation comes with mighty consequences…Psalm 9:17…
Soft sugar coated preaching of the day is why we are in the shape we are in…all you hear is God loves you…God loves the sinner and hates the sin…this could not be farther from the truth of scripture…..turn your bible to Psalm 5 and Psalm 11 and key in on verse 5 in both Psalms and see who it is that the Lord hates…it ain’t only the sin, its the SINNER…He hates the workers of iniquity and iniquity is sin folks, now let that sink in.
John 3:36, the wrath of God remains on the wicked daily.
Yet the church is just as guilty, the majority of Christian are a putrid odor in the nostrils of the Lord for they have turned to false gods just as the children of Israel in the ancient of days…go and read Jeremiah and see what the Lord brought upon His chosen nation of old. In fact He tells Jeremiah to not even pray for the people of Israel for He has shut his ear to Jeremiah’s pleas.
Yet tho those Christians who are obeying the Lord, get your storehouses filled and get ready….
20 Come, my people, enter your rooms
And close your doors behind you;
Hide for a little while
Until indignation runs its course.
21 For behold, the Lord is about to come out from His place
To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their wrongdoing;
And the earth will reveal her bloodshed
And will no longer cover her slain.
For those who care to live like the worldlings, Proverbs has you covered too…The wise see evil coming and hides himself till it passes, yet the foolish pass on and are punished.
All glory be to the Lord God, for His is the power and dominion over all His creation. Amen.
People don’t want to hear that sort of thing anymore.
Find something they want to hear and tell it to them, preach it from the rooftops, if you want to be popular and successful.
Like the Pope does these days (Pray for him, pray for God to guide him).
Fake news.UP has taken 100 locomotives out of storage and hired more engineers to get the goods where they are needed.
Since planting season is upon us, we should know that in short order.
Keep telling yourself it’s fake news.
Adams does occasionally contradict himself, and sometimes his predictions can occasionally seem a little far out, or do not play out. Nevertheless, he is pretty well informed. He does in fact have friends and associates that are in position to know things not generally publicly disclosed, and he likely knows things most of us don’t. He does profit from selling a variety of goods, but I believe he is ultimately motivated by wanting others to to be prepared.
All that aside, it doesn’t take a Mike Adams to discern what is happening and to understand what it all means. No matter how complex a society or civilization is it runs on two things, food and energy/fuel – period. The shutdown of oil or gas pipelines and the withdrawal of drilling permits I believe are crimes against the people and citizens of the US, and are going to / is causing havoc in inflation and standard of living. Add in the restrictions to import and/or transport fertilizers, especially during planting season and severe transport issues that will soon be caused by DEF shortages and extremely high fuel costs will definitely cause bare shelves.
We all heard about the prezz releasing oil from the strategic oil reserves, what a lot of people didn’t hear is much of that oil is being shipped to Europe. Furthermore, the prezz’s administration has already made arrangements to start shipping LNG to Europe in time for next winter, this will also cause costs for nat gas to rise substantially here.
Because everything in the economy and society is ultimately intricately related, there are lots of causes and effects to play out we can’t see quite yet. Therefore, what is happening now will compound. Who in their rational mind would believe all this is just coincidental, or even merely incompetence. Food AND fuel AND supply chains AND transport/distribution systems AND the timing? If you can’t see what is happening you can’t be helped. The smart ones are using what time remains to prep.
The government already gave everyone the key to survival:
stock up on lentils.
Yeah, that will do it. (sarc)
Systemic starvation and our government isn’t raising a finger…who is feeding those coming across our border? We will be fighting them for food. Bank on it.
Long time no see!
Just doubled my long term food stores. This is getting looney.
Get some buckets and oxygen absorbers and store up some cheap beans and rice in food grade buckets with air tight lids.
It will suck to eat it every day, but I went to Belize. Went up into the mountains. Visited the people that live there. They eat beans and rice three meals a day. An egg is a treat. My beans and rice had some chicken. Most natives rarely get that treat.
If you aren’t ready, you may just go hungry. It ain’t getting any better and Biden has two more years. Can you go a just one winter without food?
I also like cans of powdered eggs with a 25 year exp date. It’s a great protein source, so many ways to prepare them.
Have seeds you can sprout for their fresh vegetable value. If you can heat only one room in your house, have one with south facing windows and sprout seeds there.
Buy some extra non counterfeit olive oil, put it in your freezer. The bottom shelf of mine is reserved for long term foods. I freeze flour that I vacuum sealed, oil, spices, gravy mix. This stuff normally is good for a year or two without refrigeration. Freezing it extends its life dramatically. I rotate it and buy replacements when on sale. Big advantage I save money doing this way, and have built up a supply for a disaster. If power fails it still retains a great shelf life.
The oil is a key item, huge healthy calories, don’t underestimate its value to your survival. Add a couple tablespoons of oil to every meal, and you can get the calories you need to weather a winter.
And no the fake pandemic didn’t kill me and I’m still a pure blood.
