Amazing that one country getting shut down can cause global famine. Collapse is closer than anyone realizes.

Ukraine grows enough food every year to feed 400 million people. It produces 42% of the world’s sunflower oil, 16% of its maize and 9% of its wheat.

this is so terrifying with this whole food system collapsing. i'd like to avoid it. presumably those 400.000.000 people have to eat something? maybe it's also time to stop breeding animals for eating crops, and start exporting grains and plants to those?

If the whole food system is wheat, sunflowers and corn, then it probably ought to collapse sooner rather than later. The longer everyone depends on 3 imported crops, the bigger the catastrophe will be when those 3 crops or the global shipping industry fail. And both those things are already happening increasingly.

i'd just much rather see animal agriculture collapse than sunflowers tho
