Is China On The 'Brink' Of A Major Food Shortage?  | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Is China On The 'Brink' Of A Major Food Shortage? 

China recently launched the "Clean Plate Campaign," which targets people wasting food, as speculation of a worldwide food shortage mounts.

President Xi Jinping has pushed new measures to curb food waste following the virus pandemic, calling those who live stream their eating experiences on social media as "shocking and distressing."

Jinping said China had to "maintain a sense of crisis about food security" amid the virus pandemic. The warning comes as the world's second-largest economy could soon face food shortages. Besides the virus-induced economic downturn disrupting food supply chains, there's been droughts, floods, and pests that are likely to result in poor harvests this year.

Chinese state news agency, the Global Times, downplayed the notion China is headed for a food crisis. Some restaurants in China have limited the number of dishes served to diners, while others have weighed customers before ordering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To those of you who have never done it, slow cooking and being able to cook over an open fire, may well become your new normal; learning these skills now may well determine your survival in times to come; our electronic grid is pressed to the limit, both in terms of surging demand, and vulnerability to interruption.

Look at how successful the French have been in making slow cooking taste delicious, as in boeuf bourguignon!!!
