Elon Musk says the price of lithium is over the top! In 2002, the price per ton was $1590, by 2018 it was $16,500, todays price is $76,700 per tonne on average – an increase of over 4700%. Why the radical increase? Because of the electric car market mandates. And those increases are passed on to the consumer. As the governments continue to demand all vehicles be electric – Today there are roughly 2 billion vehicles on the global roads (passenger cars only) of which electric vehicles account for roughly 5.5 million or representing .275%. If we measured value of lithium strictly electric battery price – lithium would be valued at $27.89million per tonne at the point where gas vehicles were no longer allowed.
Of course this doesn’t even begin to touch on the likely increase in electricity cost. Especially given that up until fairly recently electric plants were mostly fired via fossil fuel and coal. Wind & solar power cannot begin to cover that expansion!
But then electric power isn’t the only catastrophic environmental sucking devastation required for an electric vehicle – they require 10x the number of ‘brain power’ via silicon chips, which are already in short supply. The two largest producers of silica in the world are – China & Russia. The US ranks fifth producing about 5% of China’s output.
While the ‘supply side shortage’ was blamed on China and the lack of containers for shipping – what happened to the containers before CoVid that were plentiful? Were they destroyed? Today, the major railways are posting shortages of railroad cars for shipping – grain. In other words there is no shortage of the ‘grain’ instead the shortage is lack of railroad cars. The ‘Unfilled’ orders for transport of grain jumped by percentage increase, NS (Norfolk Southern) saw the largest jump (1,614%) followed by CP (Canadian Pacific) 171% increase and BNSF (Burlington Northern Sante Fe) – 134%.
While esteemed economists liken supply shortages to ‘higher demand’, do we really suddenly have a higher demand for wheat and grain? Do we have a shortage of fertilizer? The US exports grain – so no shortage there, and our import partner for potash and fertilizer is Canada – no problem there.
So – What’s The Beef?
Beef is the beef. Without grain, cattle will starve, suddenly ranchers will be euthanizing their herds and a meat shortage will envelop the US. Not to worry, Bill Gates is diligently buying up farmland for the production of soy and crickets. Our new Yummily staples. I wonder if it will turn out like India’s Yellow RIce fiasco – everyone died of malnutrition.
The fact that nutritionists have for decades warned Americans that eating a diet high in processed foods leads to disease, obesity, and death is being ‘relabeled’. And a new food pyramid is being created by the FDA to comply with the cricket market.
The current Food Pyramid requires: a) 2-3 servings of milk, cheese or yogurt per day, b) 2-3 servings of meat, poultry, fish & beans, c) 2-4 servings of fruit, d) 3-5 of veggies, and e) 6-11 of grains. NONE of these will be available. The fruit and veggies are dominated by California – drought which shut down water to agriculture to less than 15% of normal. Bird Flu was introduced in January to eliminate chickens. Cattle will be euthanized. Farm fish have no value as a food. Grain is shipped overseas.
The New and Improved guidelines issued by our government telling us what we need to eat are called – Nutrition Science. Because ‘Science’ is the buzzword to hypnotize a person into believing it is – fact, when in fact, it is theory. As in Science always knows what is best for us – even if it changes hourly. Despite these wonderful guidelines pushed down our throats, obesity has only continued to rise exponentially! Isn’t that odd… I mean given the government’s intervention shouldn’t we be healthier?
All of these guidelines are scientifically researched within the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion which began in 1976 and considers their work a ‘great success’ despite achieving absolutely NOTHING. They also have launched a 2030 Agenda with 355 measurable directives.
Although they were launched in 1976, their ‘baseline’ is 2015, because they never did anything for the first 35 years of their existence. And their 355 objectives, well there is absolutely nowhere to access those measures from their website except in terms of an ‘overall vision of well being during a lifetime’. It is actually quite humorous. They don’t define the baseline, the lifetime, or even 1 of the 355 objectives. I guess those are ‘secrets’! But every ten years they plan to tell us where they would have thus now spent over $8 billion – with a start date – ummmm not yet determined.
The ODPHP does provide a list of ‘Health Conditions’ for which they have objectives. For example – Obesity and Overweight: their plan is to reduce this. For Cancer: their objective is to reduce this. For Sexually Transmitted Infections: their plan is to reduce this.
The ONE missing initiative in this list of health conditions? Cure. They have absolutely zero intention of ‘curing anything’ – instead more pharma meds is the prescribed objective.
But even more odd is the fact that this adjunct to the US Department of Health is not technically a government agency at all! They are a private company – for profit – based in New York – with an annual budget over $800million which they get from the government while making a profit! Paul Reed, the Director, is a pediatrician in Maryland – not NY, in private practice. And according to Healthgrades – his 20 years of service has earned him a 1 star rating. STELLAR!
A perfect resume for appointment to Nutrition Tzar of the US.
But then these are the Biden Handler’s choice picks to run our economy, our military, our health, our trade, our energy and our Supreme Court! The most unqualified people conceivable who have absolutely no idea they are the MOCKERY of The Century and whose Legacy will be “Here Lies XX, He/She/. Their sons and daughters have litigated that their name be omitted due to the fact that they were instrumental in the murder of over 3-4 billion persons (giveortake). And this might be viewed by the disinformation campaign as Hero Disinformation. Their dedication to money & power clearly awards them Hero Status which is deserving given they never even understood they were chosen specifically for their ignorance and incompetence.”
