This is very unusual for China to admit a problem with regards to food security, it is encouraging people to stock up for the coming winter season. The only thing for sure is that they are expecting supply chain disruption. Either no transport or no food to transport. Why would they do that unless they were expecting a food supply disruption? What could cause a food disruption? Bad harvest is a fact, Or planning for a War?

With Covid, hacks and shortages I’m not so sure we aren’t already at war with China. When they go for Taiwan our propaganda machine won’t be able to hide it anymore.

Do you not remember the floods. Those floods impacted major areas of grain production.

Maybe they are going to move on Taiwan. Usually not in winter though?

Something is up..

And the Help the US? What the hell?

Its gonna be tight on everyone, that idiotic shutdown bill is coming due fast.

I am putting that on my list of things to bulk up on.

Its due to the energy shortage they incurred on itself by boycotting Australian coal and switching to African coal. Its taking time to re-tool their existing refiners and plants to burn the new type of coal.

They knew they had to do it pretty much, but its also ironic the US is trying to do the same except with electricity both countries are trying to pivot on energy the next few years and its going to be hitting both economies, especially in food production....my guess is they figure it will take a few years to catch up so might as well pull the band aid off now if that kind of change needs to happen...

The US (maybe the only good long term energy plan the Biden Admin is doing right now, I know this wont be liked), but I think they are banking on the promise of micro-fusion becoming a reality sooner rather than later....by 2024 at least, that's when MIT's SPARC should start ignition with a net gain. I encourage anyone to take a look at it, the materials technology looks like what they are doing should be doable. The Niobium tape used to create the superconductors is proven, it all just needs to be scaled up.

Yes it struck me that nobody will have a winter war. Unless you are stupid. Or have to.

China is in bad shape. Massive aging workforce and the youth do not want to breed. Add to that energy supply issue and food shortages. XI can't even leave the country for fear of a coup. XI is going to lose control. Once the revolts start there is no way to stop it other than mowing people down.

Don't forget that less than a year before the lockdown, we here in America, had flooding in the heart of the bread basket that destroyed two years of harvest, then destroyed a significant amount of grains stored in the silos.

Back then we where talking about the rise in prices, and shortages in food in America that was on the horizon.

We had the price of oil go down to less than a penny, and just when it looked like the crap was about to hit the fan, in stepped COVID.


The torrential downpour, ice, and eventual flooding of the US plains on March 15 and 16 left ranchers stunned. The aptly named “bomb cyclone”—the official term employed by meteorologists—brought increased economic anguish to the Midwest. Vast stretches of productive farmland were flooded and rendered unusable, as cattle corpses rotted. Estimates of the impacts to just Nebraska’s livestock sector topped $400 million. Tack on another estimated $440 million in losses to the Cornhusker state’s row crops, plus $449 million in infrastructure costs, and that makes for more than $1.3 billion in total direct costs from just one extreme weather event in just one state.

I wondered back then, if all that grain that was destroyed in the flooding, could be used for something else or salvaged.

Since good for one is never good for everybody, I would like to think, what is bad for one, is not bad for everybody.

I remembered all the warning articles of what is to come. All the buzz about global warming and climate change. They all painted a very bleak picture.

Example

Policymakers, having left America unprepared for what’s next, now face brutal choices about which communities to save — often at exorbitant costs — and which to sacrifice. Their decisions will almost inevitably make the nation more divided, with those worst off relegated to a nightmare future in which they are left to fend for themselves. Nor will these disruptions wait for the worst environmental changes to occur. The wave begins when individual perception of risk starts to shift, when the environmental threat reaches past the least fortunate and rattles the physical and financial security of broader, wealthier parts of the population. It begins when even places like California’s suburbs are no longer safe.

It has already begun.

It looks like the "Dark Winter" is being pushed along with the "new normal".

All in all. It is not looking good for the home team.

This one is REALLY simple.

Beijing is worried that when everyone heads indoors this winter there will be a big covid outbreak.

If there is an outbreak the government plans to shut the country down in order to make sure that everything is under control by the time of Spring Festival. Which is China's largest national holiday, and is the time when people travel the most.

They've resorted to that before and there is 0 chance that they would hesitate to do it again.

China has virtually perfected the skill of running an air-tight police state. The only way I believe any uprising would occur in China were if some Black Swan event took out or badly weakened the CCP's ability to run the country (catastrophic natural disaster, nuclear war).

ha ha no takers.
does anyone in the West, esp common citizens, really know what's going on in China?
as I recall no one expected the USSR to collapse when it did. nor Iran / the Shah.

I think Beijing desperately wants to get Taiwan but know bombing it to bits would be counterproductive.
no way Biden challenges them.

China already has major energy supply issues . Coupled with regular outbreaks of Covid (and unlike the West, China does proper lockdowns) and it makes sense to warn people to have a bit of extra food in store this winter.
