Ice Age Farmer Report: KFC 3D prints "chicken nuggets" - Bill Gates' "breastmilk," & transhumanist future of food

food
KFC's 3D printed chicken nuggets and Bill Gates' cell-cultured breastmilk are more than a gross novelty -- they herald the unveiling of synthetic, lab-grown foods as a replacement of traditional agriculture, and a total takeover of our food supply by the technocratic transhumanists that seek total control. Christian explains why this is a significant inflection point in the devolution of our food. Spread the word and start growing food and raising animals today!

DEAD WHALE
Carcass of a whale washed ashore in Kochi coast at Manassery Fishing Spot on Friday.

The carcass of the whale seemed to be two weeks old as per the knowledge of the local fishermen who were the first to notice it.

The disgusting stench of the carcass had spread to the whole neighbourhood causing nausea and other unpleasant situations.

Forest officials had inspected the scene and have no clue as to how the enormous marine mammal died and washed up on the beach. However, before the whale could be brought to shore for an examination to ascertain its death, the giant creature was washed back into the sea on Saturday.

Global CO2 levels reach a new millennial high in 2020, despite the traffic and industry slowdown during the Covid-19 pandemic

nasa geos forecast
Global CO2 levels continue to increase, despite the slowdown of the industry and traffic around the world due to the Covid-19. Compared to 2019, the CO2 levels have increased by at least 2-3 ppm (parts per million).

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a very well-known greenhouse gas, along with Methane (CH4), which is also a very potent greenhouse gas. Greenhouse gasses trap the heat from the Sun in the Earth's atmosphere, increasing global temperatures as the trapped heat cannot escape the atmosphere.

The graphics below from the NASA GEOS-5 analysis data shows the CO2 total column mass concentration around the world for July 25th. The Northern Hemisphere is currently experiencing reduced CO2 concentrations compared to the rest of the world, due to the natural seasonal consumption.

Drought, rains and record cold deliver dismal grain harvest for Ukraine and Russia

Grain field

The two largest grain exporters on planet earth look in bad shape
. Agricultural output in the Ukraine fell by 19% during the first half of 2020, compared to the same period last year. And Russia hasn't fared much better.

Ukraine's Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture Taras Vysotsky blamed unfavorable weather conditions for 2020's dire harvest — as a result, grain prices in the nation with big "agrarian superpower" ambitions are on the rise.

A record cold and rainy May in the center and west of Ukraine, and drought in the south destroyed much of the grain, reports ria.ru. Added to that are the persistent June rains to the west which seriously delayed the harvest efforts.

Russia is also battling drought — up to 60% of the harvest has been lost in the south, and prices are on the rise their, too.

Associate Professor of the Timiryazev Agricultural Academy Igor Abakumov said that the last drought was 10 years ago, and with the phenomenon occurring at intervals of 3-7 years, Russia was "over the limit of favorable years".

Flooding almost bury cars on a street in Ha Giang Town, the capital of Ha Giang Province, July 21, 2020.
Five people including three children in Ha Giang Province in the northern highlands died Tuesday amid heavy flooding in the region due to prolonged rain.

A 44-year-old woman and her 15-year-old daughter were asleep in their house in Hoang Su Phi District when rocks collapsed onto the house at around 5 a.m. Authorities tried to rescue the two, but failed.

At 7 a.m., another woman and her 13-year-old daughter were buried as landslides hit their rent house in Ha Giang Town, the capital of the province. Authorities found them after several hours and rushed them to hospital, but only the 48-year-old mother survived.

Another child, two years of age, from Bac Quang District, drowned amid the floods.

Ice Age Farmer Report: US - Canned food shortages due to Chinese tin/steel supply chain failures

cans
Stock up now! Even as NPR mocks "Bean Buyer's Remorse," we are hearing that food packagers/distributors are unable to source tin/steel from China, resulting in a shortage of cans for food. With an already faltering supply chain, COVID-19 harvest labor concerns, and massive flooding in China, the future looks bleak -- start growing/storing food now.

A satellite image shows Hurricane Hanna approaching the Texan coast
Hurricane Hanna has made landfall in southern Texas, with US officials warning of life-threatening storm surge, strong winds and heavy rains.

Governor Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration for 32 counties, saying the coronavirus outbreak would complicate the work of the emergencies services.

Hanna made landfall on Padre Island on Saturday, and is now battering the area between Corpus Christi and Brownsville.

With winds up to 90mph (145km/h), the storm was tearing roofs off homes.

Hanna was a Category One hurricane, the lowest level on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale.

"Any hurricane is an enormous challenge," Gov Abbott said on Saturday. "This challenge is complicated and made even more severe, seeing that it is sweeping through an area that is the most challenged area in the state for Covid-19."

Iceland's Mount Hekla shows signs of high magma pressure

From the 1991 Hekla eruption, when lava covered an area of 23 square kilometers.
Measurements made near stratovolcano Hekla indicate a build-up of magma pressure that has become considerably greater than when the volcano last erupted in 1991 and 2000.

The Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Iceland, which performed the measurements, warns that eruptions in Hekla usually happen suddenly and that hikers in the vicinity of the volcano might be in danger in case of volcanic activity.

"It is not possible to guarantee that people visiting the area could be warned in time to seek shelter before an eruption would start. It is also worth noting that eruptions in Hekla often start with a powerful phreatomagmatic eruption," says the Institute. "Should a group of unprepared hikers find themselves near the eruption they would have few means of escaping."

In a phreatomagmatic eruption water and magma interact to produce tephra. There is a chance of pyroclastic flow where the tephra flows quickly down the hills of the volcano, similar to the flow of tephra that covered Pompeii in 79 AD.

The measurements were done near the farm of Næfurholt at the foot of Hekla where geologists discovered that the earth would rise during magma build-up underneath the volcano and then fall post eruption.
