Obama declares Executive Order that will make food costs SKYROCKET!

Obama issued an Executive order on August 1, 2013 that will effectively ban Ammonium Nitrate in the USA. It will become too expensive and create too much possible civil and criminal liability to manufacture, store, or transport it. Clinton did the same thing to Anhydrous Ammonia dealers in 1999. It put most Anhydrous dealers out of business. Obama is imposing the same regs and adding explosives regulations on top of OSHA and EPA regulations. It’s all there if you know how to read bureacratese.

Food and Fuel prices will skyrocket because Ammonium Nitrate forms the basis for almost all nitrogen in granular fertilizers used in American farming. There are no cost and ease of manufacture/use equivalents for ammonium nitrate. Supply and demand economics are going to be the harsh lesson of the day. Crop yields will go down. Corn is the basis for the American food supply and the fuel additive ethanol. A.N. is critical in corn production.

Hope everyone is ready for $12/gallon gasoline and $20 a box corn flakes.

You know why NKoreans are starving?? Because they don’t have ammonium nitrate to fertilize their crops… so they have shi*ty yields…

    If people were not so greedy and knew how and when to rest the land (& Sea), there would be no need for these products…

    If anyone was wondering when the food-shortage crisis was going to hit, this seems like a good indication that it’s on its way soon. They have been planning for a food crisis for years in advance, and now they are executing the orders that will ensure it happens. It must mean that they are already pretty secure in their position to control us when disaster hits. How much more do people need to see before they realize the government doesn’t have everyone’s best interests in mind?

    Highly recommended: “Living Energies” by Callum Coats (also “The Fertile Earth” by same author) who discusses the revolutionary water and farming techniques developed by Viktor Schauberger. Also well worth noting is a letter sent to the “Wall Street Journal” years ago published under title “An Ex-Farmer Laments” in which the midwestern farmer noted that the grains (wheat, corn, etc.) grown when he was younger averaged protein contents of more than double current levels, corn of today averages 4% protein, while before the introduction of nitro. fertilizers the best corn would reach 12% (or better) and similar high and low levels in wheat. He noted the nutrition problem the world faces is a protein one, not a carbohydrate issue, which in todays crops is ridiculously high and contributes to the current high levels of obesity and health issues. As a chemist, he pointed out that nitrogen destroys the hummus in the soil, which is the soils “capital”. Shcauberger managed to greatly improve both yield & quality by avoiding nitrogen fertilizers.

    Back in the day poor folk used pee to fertilize guess it will be back to mother nature.. but the chemical companies will not like this nor will the factory farms.. but Im betting Monsanto already has their substitute ready to roll :(

    What the HELL are you talking about? There is nothing in the EO that bans AN fert, just steps to ensure it’s safe manufacture, storage and sale.
    Loosen up that tinfoil hat.
