One of my commenters passed this video on to me. I find it important enough to pass on to you. Thanks to 'Red.'
I have to say that I have found Ice Age Farmer to be a good source of information, particularly about our food supply and the Grand Solar Minimum we are now experiencing. He has both a YouTube channel and a web site. Both contain information that includes documentation. It is all well and good to impart information to viewers and readers, but to extensively back up claims is unusual in this age of digital information.
There are many who believe life will continue as it always has, with store shelves holding every conceivable food known to man being available at all times. To those folks, I am happy for you, living in a world of rainbows and unicorns. Must be lovely there.
However, there are those of us who stay aware of conditions around the world. Our food supply depends not only on what happens here in our homeland, but also depends on conditions world wide. And taking those conditions into consideration, I, for one, intend to continue to put back as much food for my family as is humanly possible.
Anyone who is familiar at all with history knows that there have been periods in history when weather has had a dramatic effect on the food supply. We have gone through times of drought and times of excess rain, snow and the resulting flooding. This has nothing to do with the ever popular 'climate change' hoax, but with the natural cycles in our weather patterns.
Throughout history there have been tyrannical governments who chose to control their citizens through limiting their food. The resulting deaths due to starvation was horrendous. If you think that just because we live in America, those who wish to maintain power won't use some of those same tactics to keep us in line, think again and pay attention to all the rules and regulations that now exist concerning food production.
Procrastination is not an option. Pay attention. Stay aware. And keep on prepping!
