Break out your nerd caps.
There are three equations you'll need to understand in order to decode what's happening. Those three equations are:
#2: Hydrocarbon combustion
#3: The Haber equation for creating fertilizer
Notice that plants consume CO2 as a food nutrient. Combined with water and sunlight, they generate plant sugars (metabolic energy) while releasing oxygen that you and I breathe.
CO2 is under assault by Leftists and Democrats. They fraudulently claim CO2 is a "pollutant." It's actually plant food that produces crops for humans and animals.
We would all die without CO2 in the atmosphere because all plants would die and the global ecosystem would collapse. This appears to be what Democrats want.
Clean hydrocarbons such as natural gas can be combusted to produce kinetic energy and heat. The byproducts of that combustion are simply water and CO2 (plant food).
Hydrocarbons, in other words, set free the CO2 that plants need in order to produce higher crop yields. When the radical Left is trying to ban fossil fuels and hydrocarbons, they are indirectly attacking global crop yields (the global food supply).
When you consume natural gas as an energy source, you are freeing CO2 so that plants can use it to increase their yields and growth rates. Burning hydrocarbons actually helps food crops produce more food.
The Haber equation describes the process by which hydrocarbons are combined with atmospheric nitrogen to create nitrogen fertilizer that can be directly used by plants. Notice that you need hydrocarbons to produce ammonia, which is the basis for all nitrogen-based fertilizers such as ammonium nitrate, urea, etc.
You cannot use solar panels to efficiently produce fertilizer. Nor can you use wind farms. You need hydrogen from hydrocarbons for an efficient process. So shutting down natural gas pipelines means you don't have the hydrocarbons to produce fertilizer. Without fertilizer, crop yields plummet.
What nearly all Leftists and Democrats fail to recognize is that hydrocarbons are needed to create fertilizer in order to grow food. They falsely think of all hydrocarbons as "dirty" energy, not realizing that ammonia is a simple, clean molecule that's needed to produce both organic and non-organic crops. (Plants also need phosphorous and potassium, as well as trace minerals, of course.)
Also, remember that fossil fuels are natural sources of energy, produced by the Earth itself. Natural gas is even called "natural," which is completely accurate. It's natural to use natural gas as an energy source, and it doesn't pollute the planet one bit.
According to the FAO (UN) and other analysts, Ukraine and Russia account for a combined 28% of global wheat exports.
As of today, Ukraine has banned all exports of wheat, oats, millet, buckwheat, sugar, cattle, meat and numerous other products, as reported by The Hill.
This move is certain to cause a global supply shortage crisis in these grains, leading to even more scarcity and price inflation for the next 1-2 years. This is on top of Hungary also banning all wheat exports a few days ago.
Wheat exports, globally:
Making matters even worse, the economic sanctions imposed by western nations -- such as the SWIFT de-platforming of Russian banks -- has made it impossible for Russian exporters to sell fertilizers and food crops to the rest of the world. This also impacts minerals, of course.
The impact on America and Western Europe is that there will be panic-level shortages in food crops, fertilizers, energy and minerals, including those minerals used to manufacture electric vehicles, electrical wiring, computing components and so on.
By cutting off Russia from world markets, western nations have also cut off their own supplies of natural gas, fertilizers and many food crops. The results are inevitable and irreversible: Global famine.
It is now clear, if you do the math, that 1-2 billion human beings will face starvation by the end of 2022, just based on what has already been implemented in terms of economic sanctions and export bans. If things get worse, as many as 4 billion people on planet Earth could face "food insecurity," as it's called.
But even without extreme scarcity, the price increases are going to hit low-wage earners across the world, likely resulting in uprisings and social unrest across the board. Think about the social implications of both food prices and fuel prices doubling or tripling, and you'll realize that this has all been planned from the start. It's the cover story the globalists need to carry out their "great reset" agenda and exploit the very chaos they initiated.

Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
