Massive Starvation For World Feared Over Myanmar And Chile Catastrophes

Russia's Ministry of Agriculture and Food Production is warning President Medvedev today that the World faces the ‘immanent’ threat of mass starvation due to the catastrophic cyclone that has destroyed Myanmar’s entire rice crop, and the disastrous volcano that has virtually destroyed the South American country of Chile’s fruit and vegetable producing regions.

Myanmar, the 7th largest rice producer in the World, is still tallying its dead after this past week’s cyclone [pictured top photo on left], and which has killed over 80,000 of its citizens, but it’s ability to not only feed its own people, but to help alleviate the shortage of the one crop that feeds over half the World’s population is now gone.  

In an even further blow to the billions of human beings that rely on rice for their sole daily food, the Nation’s of Malaysia and Bangladesh have joined the growing number of countries banning exports of this vital grain crop over fears of being able to feed their own citizens after the Myanmar catastrophe.

Chile, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest producer of fruits and vegetables, has suffered an equally catastrophic blow to its ability to grow food, and as we can read as reported by the Associated Press News Service:

"The long-dormant Chaiten volcano[pictured 2nd photo on left] blasted ash 20 miles into the Andean sky Tuesday, forcing thousands of people to evacuate and fouling a huge stretch of South America."

Adding to the Global crisis of food production, these reports continue, have been Kenya’s reporting that nearly 20 percent of its rice crop has been destroyed by disease, the United Nations reporting that the deadly wheat fungus, capable of destroying entire wheat fields, has moved from Africa into the Middle East and the United States reporting that nearly 900,000 acres of their most valuable crop land has been submerged due to massive flooding in their Mississippi River regions.

Australia, one of the World’s top wheat exporters, is also warning that their historic drought is getting worse, and that should rains come, their government is reporting it will take ‘several years’ to restore their farmlands.

The United Nations Food Agency Chief, Jacques Diouf, has further warned that many Nations are in danger of civil wars breaking out due to the growing shortage of food in the World for its starving peoples.

Not just to these disasters, either, are our World’s food supply being threatened as the United States is now reporting that over 36 percent of their Nation’s commercial honey bee hives have died ‘mysteriously’ in the past year, and as we had previously reported on in our March 26, 2008 report titled "Fears Grow Over ‘Catastrophic’ US Biosphere Collapse", and wherein we detailed the shocking loss of plant pollinators in that country.

Further threatening World’s farmers is the astronomical rise in the price of oil-based chemical fertilizers used to grow their crops; and with the United States investment giant Goldman Sachs warning that Global oil prices are heading to $200 this will drive the cost of this most needed commodity out of the reach of all but the most richest of agricultural Nations.

Even in the face of this growing Global crisis, however, their appears to be no concern being voiced by the peoples of the United States, other than to complain to their War Leaders over the prices they are now having to pay for food and fuel.  It is as if they have forgotten that their ancestors of last century were some of the World’s most productive farmers, and with just a little of their own effort they could convert their own land to feed themselves and their families.

But, and as the spring planting season draws ever closer to an end, it actually seems beyond these poor people to ever consider doing such a simple task as putting little seeds into the soil to grow.  And which provides us with no greater example of how far these once mighty people have, indeed, fallen.
