Energy and Food Shortages Coming to Biden’s America

In March, President Joe Biden told the country that food shortages were coming and they were going to be real. The administration does not seem to have a problem with this, as the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Chief Samantha Powers said that food shortages will force farmers to use greener types of fertilizers. It also looks like there is going to be a cooking oil shortage as well. As Americans experience food shortages for the first time in their lives it looks like they will also have to deal with less energy in their lives.

The nation’s green energy policies is making the supply of electricity more unstable, and there may even be rolling blackouts across the country this summer. The administration has yet to explain how, on the one hand, they are encouraging people to invest in electric cars, while the electrical grid we have cannot handle the current demand. Owners of gas-powered cars might not fare much better this summer; not only is the price of gas continuing to rise, but there could be gasoline shortages as well.

The United States also faces an oil shortage due to the fact that Biden has canceled the Key Stone Pipeline, terminated leases on federal lands in Alaska and done everything he can to declare war on American energy.

All these factors together could create an unprecedented situation in the United States. International Energy Agency chief Fatih Birol has said that the U.S. could be facing an oil, gas and electricity crisis, simultaneously. The American public seems mostly oblivious to what is coming. Certainly they are aware of rising gas prices, but very few people are preparing for the coming shortages by buying storable food and planting gardens on the food side for example.

The Biden administration for its part is taking mostly cosmetic actions that will not solve the underlying problems. One such example is President Biden releasing a portion of the Strategic Oil Reserve to try and combat energy inflation, but this will only provide temporary relief. The government needs to organize a comprehensive plan to meet the coming crisis. At this point, that has not happened. Americans had better prepare for the worst this summer.
