Historic Drought, Giant Dust Storms And Massive Power Grid Failures – A Glimpse Into Our Future

This week has provided two very clear examples of why it is so important to keep on prepping: the historic drought across the United States resulting in enormous dust storms and the massive power grid failure in India.

This week has provided two very clear examples of why it is so important to keep on prepping. In the United States, the historic drought ravaging the central part of the country is absolutely devastating our crops. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, drought is affecting nearly 90 percent of all corn crops in America at this point. This is pushing the price of corn to levels never seen before. On Tuesday, the price of corn hit another new record high of $8.20 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade. Over the past six weeks the price of corn has risen more than 50 percent, and it could go a lot higher as the drought continues to absolutely bake America.

Meanwhile, the massive power grid failures in India are reminding us all just how incredibly dependent we are on electricity and technology. Power was cut off to nearly a tenth of the entire global population on Tuesday, and there was quite a bit of panic about that even though power is rapidly being restored. So what would happen to them (or to us) someday if the power went off for good?

As much as humanity would like to think that our technology has conquered nature, that simply is not the case.

Without the rain that falls from the sky, there would be mass starvation on this planet. We are not immune to drought, and there are a lot of indications that the drought we are experiencing right now is just the beginning of a longer trend.

For example, one team of scientists has just published a study that says that the western United States could be facing a “100-year drought“.
And as I wrote about recently, this current drought is the worst single year drought in more than 50 years, and the federal government has declared the largest natural disaster area in U.S. history because of this drought.

On Monday, the high temperature hit 111 degrees in Little Rock, Arkansas. That was a new all-time record for July 30th, and it was the third-highest temperature ever recorded in Little Rock.

The heat and drought are causing massive problems for farmers and ranchers all over the country. The following is an excerpt from the shocking information that Ron Klinefelter shared on standeyo.com the other day….

Sadly, even when this summer ends our problems will be far from over.

In a previous article I detailed a bunch of signs that the western United States is progressively becoming drier and drier. If something does not change, it is only a matter of time before dust bowl conditions return to the western United States.

Already, giant dust storms that are thousands of feet high called haboobs are hitting major cities in the southwest such as Phoenix, Arizona.

You can see video of giant dust storms hitting Phoenix in 2011 right here.

What will people do in these areas when these giant dust storms get even worse?

Sadly, it is not just the United States that is fighting these kinds of conditions. Heat and wildfires are also absolutely ravaging Russia right now. It turns out that Russia is not going to be able to export as much food as they were anticipating this year.

So what is going to happen someday if the United States and Russia do not have any food to export?

How many people around the world are going to starve?

That is frightening to think about.

Meanwhile, massive power grid failures in India and Pakistan are reminding all of us how desperately we all need electricity.

So are you ready for these things?

Are you ready for the power grid to go down?

Are you ready for a massive food shortage caused by extended drought?

Just because we have experienced incredibly good times for decades does not mean that things will always be that way.

Here is what a government/military insider has to say via @OccupyCorporatism

The US government has been scheming on how to provide for continuity of government for many decades now. According to an US veteran informant who claims to be an ex-marine and worked on portions the contingency plans known as Rex 84, civil unrest will come after a financial collapse.

The Readiness Exercise 1984, a.k.a. Rex 84, outlines continuity of government wherein the US Constitution is suspended, martial law is declared and the US military command take over state and local governments in order to ensure stabilization of our nation at any cost. Any American who is deemed a “national security threat” would be detained in an interment or FEMA camp.

The author of Rex 84 was Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, National Security Council (NSC) White House aids and NSC liaison to FEMA.

Rex 84 is the plan; the triggers are a series of executive orders . It is the continuity of government under specific contingency strategies that are laid out in various operations guide manuals. Operation Garden Plot is a subprogram of Rex 84.

Our world is becoming increasingly unstable. The economy is falling apart, war in the Middle East could break out at any time, society is decaying all around us, and natural disasters are becoming more frequent and more powerful.

In such an environment, it only makes sense to work hard to prepare yourself and your family for what is coming.

There is evidence that the system is starting to fail wherever you look, so now is the time to work to become more independent of the system.

In the end, it is those that are totally dependent on the system that will feel the most pain when everything begins to completely fall apart.
