I dont know for sure, but the MREs that we used to get issued, were enough protien etc to last a man one day.
The meals which they are trying to procure, are probably similar boxes with a few sheets of toilet wad, some gum, a few hard candies,perhaps Chocolate
energy bars, one main meal,(like lasagna or beans and wieners(whatever they decide for menu.....and maybe a few personal goodies.....
I would imagine thaat it would be expected that one issue would do a survivor for one whole day, three meals....
Not that there would be three whole meals in it.
It makes sense to me that they would expect people to tighten their belts, and eat a little less.
140,000,000 meals would then be good for three times longer or three times more people.
If the rations are army style then it would be economical to rotate the meals into the field rations of troops before they expire, and while they are
reasonably fresh(though ive ate some pretty old dated rations.)
Further since the rations would be service type, i imagine that halliburton would get the major portion of the contract,or one of its subsidiaries,as
they already supply these things to the army.
it makes little sense to stock up rations which will not be used, or expire before use so the timing of the expirey may be simply because they will
rotate the stock in and out as it becomes short of shelf life.
The recent activity at yellowstone, and pacific ocean vulcanism, and earthquakes,as well as accellerated small quakes elsewhere in the last few
months,certainly may have built up a catalogue of events which the scientists can find usefull in building a pattern, and predicting future
There may be some forewarning that we are not being privy to.
I sure intend to keep a sharp weather eye on whats going down in all the danger zones for a while.
