If you look around, you can see the sorcerers of this particular apocalypse already hard at work trying to change mankind’s future into a disaster very much like the one described here. Nevermind climate change and bizarro weather (HAARP anybody?). It doesn’t take much imagination to guess what could happen with the continued and expanded use of GMOs and worse rendering much of the world’s food unusable. The people of Venezuela have already been living with $150-a-dozen eggs, and empty supermarket shelves — which only goes to support sci-fi author William Gibson’s claim that “The future is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed”. From VICE Motherboard:
“The US national security industry is planning for the impact of an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade, according to reports by a government contractor.
The studies published by CNA Corporation in December 2015, unreported until now, describe a detailed simulation of a protracted global food crisis from 2020 to 2030.
