An energy crisis manufactured by the globalist agenda to rapidly transition from oil and natural gas to green energy will lead to famine and freezing across Europe, warns a veteran international journalist.
Michael Yon, a U.S. Army Special Forces veteran, pointed out in an interview Monday that the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline has exacerbated shortages that already have spiked the costs of energy and of nitrogen-based fertilizers that together drive up the cost of food while threatening the ability of families to heat their homes and cook their meals.
“We’re actually beyond the precipice at this point,” Yon told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. “We’re falling. It’s too late. There’s going to be famine, and the question is, ‘How big and how many people are going to get hit?’”
Yon said some people “talk about energy as if everything’s interchangeable, as if solar panels and windmills and nuclear plants can replace natural gas, which [they] simply cannot.”
He noted that of the 26 major plants in Europe that produce nitrogen-based fertilizers, all are either closed down or on the verge of closing.
“This will lead to famine. It’s just mathematics at this point,” he said.
The loss of the Nord Stream pipeline already has driven people in Germany and other European nations to cut down trees to heat their homes.
“People are going to literally freeze to death in Germany,” Yon said. “They’re going to freeze, and then they’re going to starve.”
Many countries around the world, including Brazil and India, rely on European-produced fertilizer, which is being suppressed to combat “climate change.”
Those countries, Yon warned, are “simply going to have famine.”
“There’s just no way out of it at this point.”
Yon warns of a “triangle of death” – pandemics, famines and wars – that go together.
“You get one, you always get the other two. There is no exception,” he said. “If you get a large war or a large famine or a large pandemic, you will always get the other two. No exception.”
In August, a survey found that with energy bills set to spike by 80% in October, nearly one quarter of adults in Britain said they would not turn on their heating this winter.
The British government energy regulator Ofgem announced that month that the average household’s yearly heating bill would rise in October from 1,971 pounds to 3,549 pounds. In U.S. dollars, that’s an increase of from about $2,300 to $4,140.
The Liberal Democrats’ Cabinet Office spokeswoman, Christine Jardine, warned at the time that millions were facing “financial devastation,” with Britain “on the brink of the worst cost of living crisis in a century.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: With what has been called the “Sovietization” of the Biden administration – including the shocking criminalization of dissent and massive weaponization of the FBI against political opponents – America is being increasingly compared to a third-world or communist dictatorship. Yet America still has one sacred institution that dictatorships from Zimbabwe to communist China don’t have: ELECTIONS. And in reality, there is no reason, despite the regime’s all-out efforts at election rigging, that the tens of millions of decent, right-thinking American voters cannot stop the Biden administration’s ever-expanding madness this November. For that reason, the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine insightfully covers the most electrifying and important races, illuminates the biggest issues, reveals how the latest federal takeover of elections actually violates the law, and much more. Looking forward to 2024, the issue also highlights why, to quote the chairman of a major think tank, Donald Trump “is the most towering political figure in living memory” and the person “most fit to lead” today’s America. It’s all in “STOPPING THE MADNESS: A MIDTERM ELECTION GUIDE FOR VOTERS WHO LOVE AMERICA.”
