Last week, 124 UN member nations met for a weeklong conference to discuss an increasing threat to the globe’s pollinators: bees, butterflies, and birds.
It was the first time world leaders convened on this scale to discuss this.
According to scientists, these pollinators face possible extinction due to many contributing factors: pesticides, habitat loss, and global warming.
An independent working group, the IPBES, will release an extensive report on the threat tomorrow.
“We are in a period of decline and there are going to be consequences,” said the report’s lead author.
Ironically, our dependence upon crops made possible by pollinators has increased by 300% in the last 50 years – at a time when 37% of bee populations and 31% of butterfly populations are decreasing.
“Everything falls apart if you take pollinators out of the game,” said Dennis van Engelsdorp, a University of Maryland bee expert. “If you want to say we can feed the world in 2050, pollinators are going to be part of that.”
Pollinators are necessary for over 75% of the globe’s leading food crops.
Which means if they’re gone, we lose a lot of food.
Unfortunately, this is prophetic.
God says that the End Times will be marked by an intense famine – one in which wheat, barley, oil, and wine is rationed to the extreme. (Revelation 6:6)
Food will be so scarce that it will take an entire day’s pay to purchase the amount of daily food needed for one person.
What about children, the elderly, and those without jobs? How will they eat?
Thankfully, there is a way you can escape the coming global famine – and it’s so simple many miss it.
Join us as we continue to monitor global trends.
