As many as six million British households could be subjected to power cuts this winter if Russian gas supplies to Europe stop, The Times reported Sunday, citing a Whitehall document.
It said that imports of natural gas from Norway could halve next winter amid surging EU demand. Britain buys around half of its total supplies from the Nordic country.
Shipments of liquified natural gas from major producers such as the United States and Qatar could also halve this winter, the UK government warned, pointing to fierce global competition for supplies of the fuel.
Meanwhile, interconnectors from the Netherlands and Belgium could also be cut off in winter, as the two countries struggle meeting their own demand.
The UK, which has vowed to end the importation of Russian oil by the end of the year, is now seeking to bolster electricity supply by extending the life of its coal and aging nuclear power stations
The enemy ( Ukrainian forces ) are actively using large-calibre artillery with a calibre of 152 mm. Here is such a shell weighing about 40 kg and flying at a speed of about 1000 meters per second.

They massively write about the fact that Putin may be dead, and his place is taken by a ringer. MI6 intelligence supplied them with information of this level!
“Senior MI6 bosses say the Russian president has been seriously ill and that if he had died, his cronies would hush it up to keep power for as long as possible.”
So, the media write that Putin’s recent speeches were recorded in advance, and the body double could be used for the first time at the Victory Day Parade. Conspiracy theorists rejoice, we sympathize with all other readers.

Now the Mariupol water area is a safe water area. All ships entering and leaving the port are accompanied by Russian military boats.
Nazi from the 36th brigade confessed to the murder of a prisoner
A former soldier of the 36th brigade spoke about how he and his fellow soldiers killed a prisoner after drinking alcohol.
“I lost my arm, got into a hospital, it was full, I returned to the bunker. I was laying there for 3 days, they brought a prisoner, he was with us, in the bunker. Painkillers did not help me, I drank alcohol, my friend persuaded me to kill the prisoner. I could not , he killed him and gave me the knife.”
It seems that Ukrainians have finally begun to suspect something is wrong ….
Several petitions have already appeared on various platforms with a request to stop the export of grain from Ukraine. Residents of the country remembered the Holodomor and asked to prevent its repetition.
The compilers of one of them referred to UN data, where the organization calls the current situation the largest food crisis in history.
“Due to the sanctions and the Ukrainian crisis,the world’s wheat reserves will last for 10 weeks,” the authors noted.
In Europe, however, they only plan to accelerate the pace of export of grain from the territory of Ukraine, and the country’s authorities contribute to this.
“The Kyiv authorities are also exporting grain along the Danube in order to pay for the supply of weapons,” the text of the petition also says.
The food boom in Ukrainian stores has already begun – salt and cereals, including buckwheat, have disappeared.
“But the authorities of Ukraine continue to sell our grain to Europe, not thinking about the Ukrainians and the coming famine,” the petitioners concluded.
They made us kneel.
A resident of the Primorsky district talked about humiliation at the hands of Ukrainian fighters.
Kiev has offered Berlin to abandon the Nord Stream – 1 gas.
You may support Ukraine, however, the reality is that Kyiv is tightening the supply of gas by order of the United States of America.
Germany should stop or reduce the transit of gas through this pipeline, the head of the Ukrainian GTS said.
Transit of Russian gas to Europe before the imposition of a full embargo by the EU should be directed through the Ukrainian gas transportation system, and not through Nord Stream 1. Germany can unilaterally restrict gas transportation through Nord Stream 1 without coordination with Hungary or other countries, he declared.
At the same time, Ukraine itself has significantly reduced the transit of “blue fuel” to Europe through its territory since May 10 and refuses to replenish pumping volumes.

⚠️ WARNING ⚠️ VERY GRAPHIC.
As a result of Ukraine hitting school № 22 in the centre of Donetsk, two people were killed and more than ten were injured.
58 food processing plants, farms, fisheries cattle farms and more have been destroyed.
From London to Yemen, there have been fires, poisoning avian bird flu, explosions and euthanasia that destroy the world’s food supply.
Over 5.1 million chickens have been killed, deer, pigs and cows. Of course, this is all a conspiracy theory and for us conspiracy theorists we’re told it’s a coincidence. Last month it was 24 fires, this month it’s 58. The billionaires are stocked up for years ready to watch us all starve.
If you grow food I suggest you plant a lot more NOW. Don’t take my warning with a pinch of salt, this is more likely to kill you than the vaccine.
Interesting to see the media call the food processing fires a “conspiracy theory”
There is growing concern farmers worldwide are reducing chemical fertilizer, which may threaten yields come harvest time, according to Bloomberg. The repercussions could be huge: Lower yields may exacerbate the food crisis.
There are alarming signs commercial farmers in top growing areas in the world are decreasing the use of essential nutrients — nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
Ukraine cuts Russian gas to Europe, threatening energy supply
So without any provocation, Zelensky cuts off European Gas from Russia. This only harms us. But these are orders from the West. Fuel, oil and food are gone in 6 months. I beg you to listen and stop believing the media when they say everything is a conspiracy theory.
Kyiv cites “force majeure” to halt a third of Russian transited gas flow to Europe, while Gazprom says there have been no issues that would justify the move.
Gas from this connection will not be accepted into the transit system of Ukraine starting at 7 am on Wednesday, OGTSU said. Sokhrankovka accounts for almost a third of the Russian gas that transits through Ukraine to Europe – up to 32.6 million cubic meters per day – according to the operators.
[IAF: German energy ministers confirm their supply is as low as 2-3 weeks. Keep an eye on Europe.]
Russian gas conglomerate Gazprom has received no confirmation of force majeure or any obstacles to continued transit of gas through a junction in Lugansk Region, the company said on Tuesday, after Ukraine’s operator OGTSU announced it would halt further deliveries starting May 11, due to the presence of “Russian occupiers.”
Gas Transit Services of Ukraine (OGTSU) declared force majeure on Tuesday, saying that it was impossible to continue the transit of gas through a connection point and compressor station located in the Lugansk area.

Huge: India has banned wheat exports that the world needed without Ukraine:
Have long said to watch wheat —
India Bans Wheat Exports in Growing Wave of Food Protectionism
India prohibited wheat exports that the world was counting on to alleviate supply constraints sparked by the war in Ukraine, saying that the nation’s food security is under threat.
Exports will still be allowed to countries that require wheat for food security needs and based on the requests of their governments. All other new shipments will be banned with immediate effect
EVACUATE THE GRAIN
Nearly 25 million tonnes of grain stuck in Ukraine, says UN food agency
Nearly 25 million tonnes of grains are stuck in Ukraine and unable to leave the country due to infrastructure challenges and blocked Black Sea ports including Mariupol, a U.N. food agency official said on Friday.
“It’s an almost grotesque situation we see at the moment in Ukraine with nearly 25 mln tonnes of grain that could be exported but that cannot leave the country simply because of lack of infrastructure, the blockade of the ports,” Josef Schmidhuber, FAO Deputy Director, Markets and Trade Division told a Geneva press briefing via Zoom.
Schmidhuber said the full silos could result in storage shortages during the next harvest in July and August.
The Head of the WTO announced, “It would help the world if we could evacuate this grain (from Ukraine),” — Earlier this week, the head of the World Trade Organization told Reuters she was “seriously worried” about spiralling food prices and seeking solutions alongside other partners.
If Money Is Speech, CBDCs Should Be Tools for Freedom
There is no constitutional right guaranteeing that you can spend your money as you please. Although there should be, and there’s precedent for thinking that money is akin to speech and spending it (within the bounds of established law) a form of expression.
This particular problem has come to light as the U.S. government studies a potential central bank digital currency (CBDC). A digital dollar, as it is sometimes called, is essentially a way to make an internet-native version of cash and coins.
This article is excerpted from The Node, CoinDesk’s daily roundup of the most pivotal stories in blockchain and crypto news. You can subscribe to get the full newsletter here.
Central bankers, if they support CBDCs, often point to the greater control a state-run monetary ledger affords over microeconomic and macroeconomic policy. A digital dollar could help automate tax collection, streamline welfare payments and inform decisions around setting interest rates.
Like everything else in the internet age, CBDCs are about big data: State-run ledgers would give near-complete insight into how money is being spent in a country. In fact, Agustin Carstens, general manager of the “central bank of central banks,” the Bank for International Settlements, said:
“We don’t know who’s using a $100 bill today and we don’t know who’s using a 1,000 peso bill today.” With CBDCs, that would be possible, he noted.
That’s quite dystopian for anyone who thinks there ought to be a measure of financial privacy – the same privacy afforded today by physical cash. Further, because CBDCs are mostly just research projects at this stage, they invite a high degree of skepticism and conspiracy theories.
Namely, people are worried “Govcoins” could become tools for coercion or censorship.
“Should people be encouraged to eat the foods decided best for them, such as a plant or insect-based diet? CBDCs could do the trick. Should people be limited in how much they can spend per week on carbon-intensive purchases? CBDCs could help with that too,” N.S. Lyons, author of The Upheaval Substack, wrote last week in conservative-leaning digital mag City Journal.
It shouldn’t be controversial to say that governments want insight and oversight over monetary flows. They enact policies that degrade privacy and set limits around how money can be spent; often in service of the noble aim of combating terrorist financing and money laundering.
Foot-and-mouth disease detected in Indonesia; Australian livestock sector on alert
So the cattle next, because cattle are dirty! Soon there will be no protein and the UN will co. e in and save the day with their already prepared protein alternative, crushed grasshopper, mealworm and cockroaches.
Australian biosecurity officials are on high alert after reports of more than 1,000 cases of foot-and-mouth disease in Indonesia, with fears that a large multi-state outbreak here could cost the industry billions of dollars.
The Cattle Council of Australia on Friday said it had received advice that 1,247 cases of the contagious disease had been detected in four East Java provinces — Gresik, Lamongan, Sidoarjo and Mojokerto.
In a statement to members, the council said it understood Indonesia was in the process of preparing an emergency declaration and collecting samples to determine an appropriate vaccine.
“We are engaged with Indonesia and also working across our networks to establish the support that Australia and other global and regional organisations can offer to support a swift and effective response,” the council’s statement said.
“Indonesia is our closest neighbour with whom we share an incredibly important bilateral trading partnership. The proximity of Indonesia has major implications for our biosecurity system and disease-free status.”
Maine lobster industry fighting shutdown for ‘endangered whale’
Like the Canadian fishers and all the other food producers that have been regulated or shutdown since 2020 – in many cases there are fights going on in the courts. But what’s more significant is that all these legal battles flow from a calculated wave of shutdowns in disparate areas and industries, happening in concert, in a year while everyone was confused.
They shook up the nest and then threw a web over producers around the world.
An observing alien species would ask itself, “Why is humanity destroying ALL of their food sources?”
In this special Ice Age Farmer broadcast, Christian has a candid conversation about the overwhelming number of attacks on our food supply and animals. With crops unplanted and with more food facilities burning down, the media runs stories about “food fire conspiracy theories.” And it’s not just chickens — the state is also killing deer and fish in the name of stopping diseases. Start growing food now.
“By looking at production in key beef producing regions, we can see that a range of global and local factors may limit the supply onto the world market, with obvious implications for food security.”
Global supplies of beef will remain tight for the short to medium term.
This is due to below-average production in the EU and US specifically, firm domestic demand in the US, and elevated import demand from China and the rest of Asia.
The outlook for the UK domestic beef sector is somewhat different, however. The report analyses figures which show that the beef herd in Britain could experience modest growth over the next year.
The domestic cattle sector produces fewer emissions than the global average, therefore a greater reliance on UK-produced beef may help both in terms of food security and sustainability, it says.
The report considers supply and demand factors in some of the world’s key beef and sheepmeat producing regions, including the UK, the EU, New Zealand, Australia, the US and Brazil.
Report author, Glesni Phillips from HCC, said British farmers were already feeling the effect of increasing energy and input costs.
Drastic changes in supply patterns could lead to a limited supply of red meat – particularly beef – on the global market, a new report has warned.
The challenge for the meat trade comes as food security is impacted in the wake of international crises and increasing prices.
Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) report concludes that global supplies of beef will remain tight for the short to medium term.
This is due to below average production in the EU and US specifically, firm domestic demand in the US, and elevated import demand from China and the rest of Asia.
In addition, the levy board’s report says that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is impacting trade flows and has led to fuel, grain and fertiliser prices rising significantly.
Experts warn that additional costs could lead to further instability. While some additional supply may come in the short term if farmers reduce stocking levels, the international situation may make a recovery in production more difficult in the longer term.
Without speaking to who is responsible — this is unfortunate.
Wow: Shanghai’s backlog of ships is quite literally off the chart, even compared to the disturbances last year.

Just a bit of marine traffic backed up there in Shanghai — get ready for massive supply shock
The Turkish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry will indefinitely suspend the export of butter and cream from today.
Turkey exported 3.154 tons of butter in 2021, which rose to 3.874 tons in the first two months of 2022 — concerning Ankara about Turkey’s ongoing inflation and ability to meet increased food demand in the summer, a time of increased tourism.
Turkey’s inflation rate, which hit 61% year-on-year in March, helps inform these export restrictions. Erdogan’s government seeks to suppress rapidly rising costs of goods by increasing domestic supply stocks, particularly of food items, which are rising in price globally amid the Russia-Ukraine War.
The Ministry predicted the export ban when it temporarily banned certain agricultural exports on March 10, publishing a list of possible restrictions on specific commodities. Among the halted export goods was olive oil,
Prices are likely to continue rising, especially for food products. Ankara is likely to restrict certain seasonal produce, such as green plums, next. The price of green plums is highly inflated, and they primarily go to Russia, Germany, and the Netherlands.
Azure Standard – Nation’s Largest Independent Food Distributor – Headquarters Completely Destroyed in Mysterious Overnight Fire – keeps happening to our food supply chain/facilities!
“The headquarters of Azure Standard, the nation’s premier independent distributor of organic and healthy food, was destroyed by fire overnight. There were no injuries. The cause of the fire is unknown and under investigation. The loss of the facility and the impact on company-wide operations is being assessed and expected to be limited and temporary. No other Azure Standard facilities were affected.
A convergence of horrifying events have set into a motion an irreversible collapse of food production and crop harvests that will lead to global famine all the way through 2024. These events cannot be stopped for the simple reason that plants take time to grow. You can’t create crops instantly, and if they don’t get planted (or they get destroyed), there’s no instant replacement.
The reasons for the coming global famine include:
Floods and droughts causing sharp drops in crop production in China, Russia and the USA, among other nations.
Economic sanctions against Russia causing a halting of exports for food and fertilizer.
War in Ukraine, leading to a halting of the 2022 planting season for wheat, corn, soy and other crops.
War in the Black Sea, blocking ship movements in the ports (such as Odessa) which normally export crops.
The Biden admin’s shutting down of fossil duel production in the USA, adding significant costs to fertilizers and agricultural operations.
Global fiat currency money printing, making food inflation reach atrocious levels.
Importantly, all this coalesces into two primary problems that will now accelerate across the world:
Scarcity, of course, means there’s no remaining supply no matter what the cost. Inflation means the food that is available will be significantly higher in price. Both of them cause people to panic, ultimately leading to widespread civil unrest (see below).
Understanding farm and crop inputs
Farmers are right now reporting a roughly 300% increase in their cost to produce crops such as wheat. This is due to three primary inputs:
The cost of fertilizer and seed.
The cost of fuel to power agricultural equipment.
The availability of tractors and other equipment (and their parts) in order to carry out mechanized agricultural operations.
Importantly, all three of these inputs are heavily strained due to the conditions mentioned above.
In addition to these factors, fuel costs significantly elevate transportation expenses to transport grains to grain storage and milling providers. Thus, rising fuel costs hit farmers twice: First for the cost of running their equipment, and secondly in the transportation costs.
Sadly, it looks like diesel fuel is headed toward $6 / gallon, and this is going to put severe upward pressure on food prices across the board. As I say in the podcast, elections have consequences… and rigged elections have dire consequences. (Joe Biden is punishing America with economic sanctions against our entire energy sector while having no such sanctions on Russia’s energy exports.)
Fertilizer costs have tripled, and fertilizer supply is growing scarce
Fertilizer prices have tripled and will likely go higher, especially as Russia has halted fertilizer exports and shut down natural gas pipelines to Western Europe. As a result, the fertilizer supply is growing scarce. About 5 billion people on the planet depend on fossil fuel-created fertilizer for their primary source of food. Thus, without fertilizer — if it were to go to zero — about 5 billion people starve to death.
I am not predicting the starvation of 5 billion people, since fertilizer production isn’t zero. But it is easily down by 25% – 30% right now, perhaps more, and that means somewhere approaching 2 billion people (or more) are going to face real famine / starvation in the crop seasons ahead. Very few people understand that food comes from fertilizer which is made using hydrocarbons. This is why left-wing activists are so eager to shut down pipelines, having no clue this will shut down their own food production as a result.
Extreme food scarcity to become apparent at the retail level this summer
There is a delay time between crop yield collapse and food scarcity at retail (grocery stores). Right now in March, we are eating the winter harvest of wheat. By late summer, we will be depending on wheat from the spring wheat crops around the world, and those crops just aren’t getting planted at the level necessary to feed the world.
The StrangeSounds.org website recently published a good overview of what they call the “wheat apocalypse.” From that article:
The wheat outlook looks grim… All over the world…
A limited supply of soft white wheat, the primary type of wheat grown in the Inland Northwest, has helped lead to a six-year low for wheat exports from the United States. That’s according to the USDA wheat report for February. The report also states that 71 percent of U.S. winter wheat is being hit by drought in 2022.
Egypt’s food security crisis now poses an existential threat to its economy. The fragile state of Egypt’s food security stems from the agricultural sector’s inability to produce enough cereal grains, especially wheat, and oilseeds to meet even half of the country’s domestic demand.
[China’s] Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Tang Renjian said that rare heavy rainfall last year delayed the planting of about one-third of the normal wheat acreage.
Drought has shriveled Canada’s wheat crop to its smallest in 14 years, and its canola harvest to a nine-year low, a government report showed on Monday.
Parched soils and record-hot temperatures in Canada’s western crop belt sharply reduced farm yields of one of the world’s biggest wheat-exporting countries and largest canola-growing nation. The drought has forced millers and bakers to pay more for spring wheat, and drove canola prices to record highs.
By this summer, food shelves are going to look frighteningly empty across America, Canada and Western Europe
The upshot of all this is that food shelves are going to look downright frightening in 2022, and for the shelves that actually have food, it’s going to cost perhaps twice as much. Some items might see prices triple.
Even Reuters is now openly reporting that a United Nations agency says food inflation has hit 20%. And those are slightly old numbers. By the time they factor in the summer and fall of 2022, it’s going to be much closer to 50%.
Shockingly, food basics are going to require a larger and larger percentage of workers’ paychecks, taking away their ability to pay for fuel (which is also skyrocketing) or to purchase clothing, housing, etc.
The only factor that may actually reduce the demand for global food is the global vaccine die-off caused by mRNA / spike protein injections that are killing people are record numbers. The covid bioweapon, after all, is a depopulation weapon.
The net result is going to be global uprisings and social unrest on a scale we’ve never seen before
As covered in today’s podcast (below), the net effect of all this is going to be global uprisings, chaos and social unrest on an unprecedented scale.
Ever heard the saying about “nine meals from anarchy?” That’s what we’re about to witness later this year, in 2022.
It doesn’t mean that every city will collapse into instant chaos, but food scarcity, food inflation and energy inflation will create conditions of extreme poverty and desperation among the population. As a result, you’re going to witness more of the following:
Flash mob looting of grocery stores, followed by increased security at grocery retailers.
Gunpoint robberies of people exiting grocery stores, carrying groceries.
Highway robberies of transport trucks that are delivering goods to grocery retailers (ripped right out of Venezuela).
Increased carjackings, home invasions and crime derived from desperation and starvation. (While Democrats continue to “defund the police.”)
