Hurricane Ida shows the fragility of agricultural supply chains – Quartz

Hurricane Ida barrelled into the Louisiana coast on Aug. 29, bringing 150 mph (230 kph) wind gusts, torrential rain, and widespread power outages to New Orleans and the surrounding region. It also brought all shipping traffic through the mouth of the Mississippi River to a grinding halt, snarling supply chains at the start of a crucial period for US grain exports.

The US Coast Guard closed the Mississippi to barge traffic ahead of the storm on Aug. 28, and the New Orleans International Airport shut down passenger and cargo traffic on Aug. 29. The Port of New Orleans closed its container shipping terminals on Aug. 30 and stopped all “breakbulk operations,” which refers to moving cargo from large ocean freighters to smaller barges for transport up the Mississippi River.

OPEC+ agrees to stick to existing oil output hikes – Al Jazeera

OPEC and its allies agreed to stick to their existing plan for gradual monthly oil-production increases after a brief video conference.

Ministers ratified the 400,000 barrel-a-day supply hike scheduled for October after less than an hour of talks, one of the quickest meetings in recent memory and a stark contrast to the drawn-out negotiations seen in July.

Seaborg completes experiments to optimise its molten salt reactor design – Nuclear Engineering International

The Danish nuclear reactor company Seaborg Technologies is currently completing important experiments in collaboration with both experts from Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS) at Oxford (UK) and European Spallation Source (ESS) research centre in Lund in Sweden. The goal is to understand how neutrons in modern reactors behave. The new knowledge should allow Seaborg to optimise their reactor design. The company is aiming for 2025 for having its first reactor online. Seaborg is developing compact thorium-based Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs).

Our household farming future – Resilience.org

To reiterate my basic position, I think we face a future of high climate, water and land/soil stress, lower energy and capital availability, and socioeconomic/political turbulence and contraction. In these circumstances, I think farm societies will emerge that are strongly based on smallholder households devoting much or most of their attention to the intensive cultivation of small land areas for meeting their own food and fibre needs.

Madagascar is suffering from a climate change famine – Quartz Africa

Madagascar is being hit by one of the modern world’s first climate change-induced famines—a disaster that underscores the profound unfairness of a planet heated up by carbon emissions.

The famine, caused by a devastating, four-year drought, is placing at least 30,000 people in the most extreme stage of food insecurity: a level five famine, as defined by the World Food Programme (WFP). At least 1.1 million are in some kind of severe food insecurity, the United Nations has said. “People have had to resort to desperate survival measures, such as eating locusts, raw red cactus fruits, or wild leaves,” Amer Daoudi, a senior director at WFP, told the UN earlier this year.

U.S. Sen. Michael Lee (R-Utah) requested FDA schedule a public hearing to clarify its position on the use of N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) in supplements.

    False flag

    Yeah, you can be sure the red flag laws will trigger too if you don't play along. It seems like time has almost run out. They've played nice enough so far to let you decide for yourself, those that didn't pick right are going to bear the consequences. It will happen fast and there is probably precious few moments left to prepare. It feels like sailing into a hurricane right now. You can see the storm coming, but have no idea how bad it's gonna get or if you'll even make it. Hold on tight folks.

    Edit: and the number of accusations against the unvaxxed too. I won't go into specifics but lets just say we will have VERY disreputable characters. The narrative sells itself and that emotional repulsion will drive many to the needle.

    Be ready to lose your reputations as well as your material possessions. You have to walk away from everything in that moment or you will not even keep your life after. Things are about to get dark.

    Booster 2 for all of Mu

    https://trialsitenews.com/the-mu-variant-on-who-radar-the-colombian-born-b-1-621-may-be-able-to-evade-immune-defenses/

    Booster 1 is in the process of ramping up throughout the west. On September 20th, the US is expected to make it available to US citizens clamoring to right themselves with the herd immunity narrative. The target of that booster is unsurprisingly, the Delta variant! (Dun dun dunnnnn). Booster 2 is planned for the newly emerged Colombian variant (oops that's racist now I think), I mean the Mu variant. If it doesn't dominate the headlines by November 1, wait for the restrictions to relax so they can create a curve to flatten.

    The new variant will be Mu-sic to your ears after Delta. But the cute puns will quickly turn into group pun-ishment for those who don't line up for jab #4. This is the new normal.

    ... Before we go any further, let’s clear up what the FDA actually approved, because they did not approve the Pfizer shot currently given. In the interview above, Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine platform, explains how we are being misled, yet again. ....

    location tracking--forcible downloading of a locator app.

    I wonder what they are going to do about people who don't own phones.  I don't own a mobile phone.  Will they buy me one and pay the monthly bill?  I don't see how this is enforceable....

     

    in reply to the app that will be 'forcibly' downloaded onto Australian phones for purposes of location tracking.

    UC Irving doctor sues over vaxx mandate

    https://www.medpagetoday.com/special-reports/exclusives/94341

    The UC Board of Regents' vaccine mandate is a violation of the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment, alleged a lawsuit filed by Aaron Kheriaty, MD, a psychiatry professor at the University of California Irvine's (UCI) medical school.

    In the complaint, Kheriaty, who also serves as the director of the medical ethics program at UCI, argues that his natural immunity from getting COVID-19 in July 2020 provides better protection against future infection than any vaccine on the market. Therefore, he believes that he and others in his position should be exempt from a mandate.

    "At first glance, I may seem like an unlikely person to challenge these vaccination policies," Kheriaty told MedPage Today, recalling his involvement in the university's worst-case scenario pandemic planning team and co-authoring UCI's ventilator triage guidelines. "I've seen the worst that this illness can do. I've been living and breathing COVID professionally from the very beginning of the pandemic."

    Yet, he said, as universities started to announce vaccine requirements for the upcoming 2021 academic year, he became concerned with the "one-size-fits-all coercive policies that attempt to override informed consent for competent adults" that didn't account for the "individualized risks" that COVID-19 vaccines posed to certain groups of people.

    Although the UC system's vaccine requirement policy allows for physician-approved medical exemptions, Kheriaty said that many healthcare professionals in California won't write exemptions for their patients, even if they agree that the patient is at a higher risk of adverse reactions, out of fear of retaliation from the state medical board.…

    So, you haven’t got a smartphone for them to track you with?

    Easy solutions are at hand. Ankle bracelet monitoring just like a convicted criminal. Give you a phone and forcibly take the cost out of your bank account electronically just like if your wages were garnished after losing a lawsuit. Forcibly remove you to a “Health Recovery Camp” and lock you in behind the concertina wire and armed guards. Or maybe have an Antifa-like mob of useful idiots kill you in a mostly peaceful riot at your home or place of employment. Use your imagination, boys and girls. They certainly are!

    Why not just come to my house and shoot me in the head? As long as we are making up impossible to escape solutions and omnipotently powerful antagonists...Maybe they just kill you.

    I really hate playing that game because its defeatist and the only logical end game is to throw your hands up and surrender. You present a problem; they are going to track you through your cellphone. I propose a solution; I dont have a cellphone. You counter my solution with an impossible to escape response; they are going to weld an ankle bracelet onto my leg... I say I wont keep it on, you say then they'll come and drag me away to a camp. I say I wont go willingly, you say they shoot me in the head.

    OK so what the hell do you want me to say? Maybe you're right, we should just give up or die. If you're right I might as well take the shot, buy a cellphone and join the borg. Resistance is futile. They have an answer for everything I do, their power is absolute, they have no limits, and no weaknesses. Every path is blocked by them with no gaps or flaws.

    I refuse to think that way.
