    Good, but misleading packaging, June 8, 2010

    Fast delivery and I’m happy to have a stash of emergency food. But, the packaging is a little misleading. It’s not 275 individual servings. It’s 55 packets that contains 5 servings. So you either need to cook 5 servings at a time or have a way to measure, divide, and store the 5 servings between meals. Not a big deal but just be aware. Overall, I hope to never need to use this product!

    Lots of food, but very small servings, July 30, 2010

    Some info to make deciding whether or not to purchase: this bucket comes with 275 servings of food. However, as another reviewer noted, the food is packaged in servings of 5. What the other reviewer did not note is that the servings are relatively small: I computed that the average calorie count per serving is 128. Assuming a 2000 calorie diet, this means that you might be eating 15 servings of this food every day in an emergency situation, which works out to about 18 days of food.

    That’s less than I expected out of 275 servings, but this is still a huge, cheap, long lasting bucket of food. I haven’t tasted any of the food, nor do I plan to for the next 19 years or so 🙂 For now I’m definitely still glad I bought it!

    Perfectly fine “survival food”, September 12, 2010

    Let me start by saying that For Your Health products (such as instant rice, dehydrated pinto beans, and whey milk) are also available at Costco. The nice thing about buying it there is that if you don’t like it, you can take it back.

    I have mixed feelings about this (and similar) products that I categorize as “survival food.” If you are looking to buy a bucket of food that is to be put up on a shelf and only pulled down under the most dire of circumstances, then this product is fine. The food is in small servings, and is edible enough.

    However, stockpiling “survival” food is usually wasteful and unnecessary. It is much better to simply increase your stockpile of “regular” food (e.g., canned veggies, rice, beans, boxed foods, shelf-stable milk, etc.). Nearly all store bought canned and boxed foods have a shelf life of many months to several years – detailed shelf life tables are online or in my handbook. I recommend establishing a 30-day minimum food stockpile – no tubs of beef jerky or crates of tuna. Just regular food that you keep rotated. With this level of supplies, you can feed your family a balanced diet through nearly any event, and that includes hurricanes, floods, pandemics, widespread blackouts, etc. It is true that you wouldn’t be ready for truly world-changing events, such as if an asteroid hits the planet and destroys all civilization as we know it, but I would argue that being worried about highly unlikely events is counterproductive to a productive life. It’s much better to be prepared for likely threats.

    I fully understand that many people believe that 30 days of food is totally inadequate, and that’s fine, stockpile more. But keep in mind that the average American eats 2,100 pounds of food per year. So keeping 30 days of food for a family of five might be about 1,000 pounds of food – definitely requiring a little creative thinking to store in most homes.

    The bottom line is that the For Your Health products are perfectly acceptable food products, but unlikely to ever actually be eaten. You would be better served by shoring up your daily food supply. Just my opinion; you decide for yourself.

    Please be kind enough to indicate if reviews are helpful.

    Can Soylent Green transpire in Significant metropolitan areas like NY and London? huge population in cities less fresh offer food?
    Im currently viewing a film known as Soylent green, I place it on pause to see if this scary situation could occur, we have no locations to grow meals or be self ample in our large cities this sort of as London and New York, we count seriously on shops to offer us for survival, but with overcrouding or an Emergency would we be ready to survive or in the long term in a non emergency with the population of the environment escalating would we have plenty of food to feed the environment population say by 2025?

  • Kathy Miller says:

    . first and foremost thank you for using the time to study what i have published for a notion in agriculture that 70 years old., It is Change THAT IS POSSIBLE, it mite reward all of us. Ushering in a new GOLDEN AGE. You have my vote because I believe in you, if I can help out in anyway I will. So here is the idea and thank you yet again to whoever reads this, remember to forgive my grammatical errors, and visualize the concept of this varieties of independence and appreciation that would grow from this. Now there would be taxes concerned yes, but in the long-term wouldn’t it be advantageous to the up coming generation. or are they not really worth it? Far Better us then one more Nation right, it will transpire at some level the actual query is when, and is quicker better then later?

    A Hydroponic Chemical Treatment and Distribution Plant

    In every city or city, correct next to the pre existing water supply and treatment Plant. it would recycle the chemical extra through the h2o filtration/treatment plant and put those recycled substances get ride of the root that broke off the plants, or hydroponic rocks, and clean the water and equalize the pH in the water supply. put the nutrient chemicals back into the hydroponic chemical plant exactly where they separated and put into there very own holding containers. After it has been feed into the sewage/piping to the flats or houses. And the cycle keeps repeating. like it does with previously preexisting drinking water supply and treatment method facility’s. that could aid feed a populous throughout a time of crisis or out of good will.

    Economic Boost, Greater Population, and New Jobs

    when you build something Massive A total new work trade and economic improve would occur. By Way Of hydroponics and you produce a greater plant though. Farmers could dedicate there fields could be feed the hydroponic solution for the crop, it would expand faster, and juicer. they could increase rarer foods, opening up new markets Farmers could dedicate a lot more time to growing corn to make ethanol creating fuel cheaper, as an alternative of increasing currently preexisting foods grown by folks in there residences or apartments. Or. It would educate a far better appreciation of naturel display the world that The Us is using steps to fixing hunger Far Better plants suggest better health, enhance in population.

    Time of Crisis or Disaster

    There are several positive aspects in desperate times specifically now, If there actually was wide spread panic and a fantastic economic depression occurred it would quit starvation among the center class, hundreds of thousands would raid the neighborhood grocery store and clear them out. Or if a nuclear war happened and specified places obtained hit and there is no way to get to the regions of food supply, you would have a good quantity of meals expansion for a metropolis leading to thousands and thousands not to die.

    Education Method Idea

    A gardening course in the school system for every single age set up to instruct individuals how to increase specific things. It would appreciation for naturel and all life, it would teach survival capabilities also and several far more suggestions and a way to launch stress.

    Toxin Control

    the plant would have checkpoint setup via out the city that would analyze the drinking water inside of each town block. or location ended up the water would run by means of a filter to examine to see if somebody is tampering with the water provide by placing poisons into it to destroy thousands and thousands or to see if an individual is expanding one thing illegal, it the pipes could be analyzed by pcs with the right software program at specific locations, by way of Wii Fii and at the major handle hub. The Management center would check the chemical readings and shut it off in case of a emergency, whatever it mite be, whether or not it is with a large quantity of poisons chemicals by terrorist. Or if pipes break in certain places and contaminates the water offer of middle Huge Pipe (water) surround smaller sized pipes chemical compounds then a case of all of that, depending on the type of Climate like chilly environments.

    Why it wouldn’t Occur

    Why I could see this not occurring is because huge wig or spiteful individuals who like to shoot down various ideas. that and certain corporation of farmers would shed dollars cause the buyer would now have the power, and they mite not want this to occur, I’m sure Company farming company’s have lobbyists in Washington D.C. other than for on their own and there company’s, so they could maintain management as an alternative of a local community of genuine farmers, real people. And printing this notion out and providing to my town’s public officials and representatives. The domino result has occurred now really 1 way or yet another I just want you if to remember to provide it up.

    Conclusion

    you have almost everything to acquire and really nothing to lose. You would usher in a golden age individuals would see if explained right that they would invest tax bucks to out of sheer advantages of the subsequent generation.

  • Cape Town Recommends says:

    I am putting together some survival items in case of emergency. I would like it to include food items that will be beneficial and have a very long shelf life. I am checking into commercial MREs but they are fairly pricey for what you get.
    Any help from out there would be greatly appreciated!

  • Kara Alexander says:

    The movie will be called “It’s not that cold here, really.” and it will be an American comedy produced by ME!

    The movie will be about a dumb American gangster from New Jersey who decides to leave his gang town and visit a more peaceful place called….Canada.

    He decides to travel to Toronto in mid-July and his family talks him out of it telling him “it’s VERY COLD in Canada, it’s a freezing cold country!” So he rebelliously drives to New York/Ontario border with 16 North Face jackets, a survival kit, a battery generator to heat the car, a 4-week supply of emergency food, a portable stove, 16 containers of mosquito repellent, a hunting knife. And a guide to survivng Polar attacks in the arctic wilderness. And emergency bottles of water, emergency toilet paper, for his summer trip to Toronto, Ontario. He’s an idiot.

    He gets to the Canada border and they ask him where he’s going!!!! He says “Toronto for the July weekend.”

    Customs official: What have you brought here???? 16 jackets, emergency supplies, bear repellant????

    Guy: Because my friend said it’s FREEZING COLD in Canada.

    Customs official gets skeptical because he thinks perhaps this guy is planning to stay the winter, either that or hide out. And overstay his welcome and not plan on leaving the country. They keep him at the border for a few days.

    The guy starts USING his survival kit food and water to feed himself while sitting in the immigration customs office. Just to give him what he asked for, they purposely put the AC on 10 degrees celsius so he can freeze inside the immigration and customs building.

    He ends up being held over in the border office until the weekend is over, so they tell him to make a U-turn and USA customs will take it from there.

    They say “I hope you enjoyed your stay. Next time, do some research before you plan a trip to Toronto.”

    It would be pretty funny.
    Or you can make it where they do let him into Toronto and then it just so happens the city experiences a black-out like a few summers ago, and the guy thinks it’s ALWAYS like that
    You know? I’ve been in MANY Canadian cities. Intentionally, the last place I want to visit in Canada, after I see all the other provinces including the maritimes, is TORONTO.
    Isn’t this fascinating? See everything except Toronto, and then Finally…..Toronto.
    Edit Dangerma: Definitely would put you in the credits. The thing though is going straight north by road, you can’t go much farther than Kapuskasing. Or the road to James Bay. The only opportunity to drive FAR north is to go west of Edmonton. Unless of course you fly

  • Verified Account says:

    Even me. I know darn well I should have enough supplies for 2 weeks for my family, but I don’t.

    About the only thing I’ve done is prepare a pretty good emergency kit for my car including tools, survival stuff, food, and a really good first aid kit.

    I will NEVER forget the winter of 200 in Seward, Alaska. I had just moved up to Alaska from the lower 48 states in the middle of January. Alaska was experiencing record snow fall levels that year. So when I got there houses where cover above the door tops. To me that seemed like the Alaska that I thought it should be. People were really expressing that “OH NO! This is not normal for us even up here.” Soon, a chain of 36 avalanches shut down our only road for days on end. The main supply routes was cot off and we were isolated for a long time. It was mass hysteria! the only 2 grocery stores were absolutely bare of almost anything but junk food. Anything essential to preserve life was GONE! I started to worry but the Alaskans took it in stride. 3 days later the US Army flew food in for us and water. So I learned my lesson hard about storing food but what else might be a good idea especially in a cold weather environment? I got first aid stuff covered also.

    I am putting together some emergency survival kits for me and my family. I need to know how many calories a person needs a day to survive. I’ve done some searching and found multiple answers. Everything from equations to calculators. Some say 1600 a day. Others say 2400 a day. But when I’ve searched ready made kits, they only supply 800 calorie food bars per day. What does a person need to stay alive?

  • Bolger Holzhauer says:

    They’re generally found outside schools and other congregations. They’re meant to house supplies in case of emergencies. I’ve always wondered, what do they keep in there? Is it the basics like survival food, blankets, guns, flares, and matches? Or is it more sophisticated?

  • Daniel GiraldoMolina says:

    . first and foremost thank you for taking the time to read what i have written for a idea in agriculture that 70 years old., It is CHANGE THAT IS POSSIBLE, it mite benefit all of us. Ushering in a new GOLDEN AGE. You have my vote because I believe in you, if I can help out in anyway I will. So here is the idea and thank you again to whoever reads this, please forgive my grammatical errors, and imagine the idea of this kinds of independence and appreciation that would grow from this. Now there would be taxes involved yes, but in the long-term wouldn’t it be beneficial to the next generation. or are they not worth it? Better us then another Nation right, it will happen at some point the real question is when, and is sooner better then later?

    A Hydroponic Chemical Treatment and Distribution Plant

    In every town or city, right next to the pre existing water supply and treatment Plant. it would recycle the chemical excess through the water filtration/treatment plant and put those recycled chemicals get ride of the root that broke off the plants, or hydroponic rocks, and clean the water and equalize the pH in the water supply. put the nutrient chemicals back into the hydroponic chemical plant where they separated and put into there own holding containers. After it has been feed into the sewage/piping to the apartments or houses. And the cycle keeps repeating. like it does with already preexisting water supply and treatment facility’s. that could help feed a populous during a time of crisis or out of good will.

    Economic Boost, Higher Population, and New Jobs

    when you build something BIG A whole new job trade and economic boost would occur. Through hydroponics and you produce a better plant though. Farmers could dedicate there fields could be feed the hydroponic solution for the crop, it would grow faster, and juicer. they could grow rarer foods, opening up new markets Farmers could dedicate more time to growing corn to make ethanol making gas cheaper, instead of growing already preexisting food grown by people in there homes or apartments. Or. It would teach a better appreciation of nature show the world that America is taking steps to solving hunger Better plants mean better health, increase in population.

    Time of Crisis or Disaster

    There are many benefits in desperate times especially now, If there ever was wide spread panic and a great economic depression occurred it would stop starvation amongst the middle class, millions would raid the local supermarket and clean them out. Or if a nuclear war happened and certain areas got hit and there is no way to get to the areas of food supply, you would have a decent amount of food growth for a city causing millions not to die.

    Education System Idea

    A gardening class in the school system for every age setup to teach people how to grow certain things. It would appreciation for nature and all life, it would teach survival skills also and many more ideas and a way to release stress.

    Toxin Control

    the plant would have checkpoint setup through out the city that would analyze the water within every city block. or area were the water would run through a filter to check to see if someone is tampering with the water supply by putting poisons into it to kill millions or to see if someone is growing something illegal, it the pipes could be analyzed by computers with the right software at certain locations, via Wii Fii and at the main control hub. The Control center would monitor the chemical readings and shut it off in case of a emergency, whatever it mite be, whether it is with a high amount of poisons chemicals by terrorist. Or if pipes break in certain areas and contaminates the water supply of middle Big Pipe (water) surround smaller pipes chemicals then a case of all of that, depending on the type of Climate like cold environments.

    Why it wouldn’t Occur

    Why I could see this not happening is because big wig or spiteful people who like to shoot down different ideas. that and certain corporation of farmers would lose money cause the consumer would now have the power, and they mite not want this to occur, I’m sure Corporate farming company’s have lobbyists in Washington D.C. except for themselves and there company’s, so they could maintain control instead of a community of real farmers, real people. And printing this idea out and giving to my town’s public officials and representatives. The domino effect has occurred now really 1 way or another I just want you if to please bring it up.

    Conclusion

    you have everything to gain and truly nothing to lose. You would usher in a golden age people would see if explained right that they would invest tax dollars to out of sheer benefits of the next generation.

    If you believe in what i am saying if you can see and imagine it, then talk about maybe we can make this dream a reality, because talking about a issue or spreading a idea can help push progress. people are near sig
    If you believe in what i am saying if you can see and imagine it, then talk about maybe we can make this dream a reality, because talking about a issue or spreading a idea can help push progress. people are near sighted most of the time so they need to be shown things up close to really understand. So please give me your opinions on this idea?

    I put this hear because an implosion of government is the only thing I can think of that would force one to be completely self reliant for a year, natural disaster would only leave people cut off for a few hours or days at the most

    This is a real question so don’t put, “an ounce of P91 and a case of Coors”

    What do you have as your emergency back up as in the way of food, water, self defence, shelter…

    I live in a gated community on a golf course in So Cal, everyone I know keeps an “Earth quake kit” with food, water, communication, hygiene….

    I keep on hand at all times enough food for 4 people for 1 year at 1800-2200 calories a day, every year I donate my food supply to a homeless shelter and restock so nothing I have is more than a year old
    I also keep 100 gallons of water, water purification systems, bleach, first aid including all the basic meds, also keep 100+ gallons of gasoline which the gardener uses for the lawn mower then I replace with new fuel so I always have a fresh supply, a few grand in cash a few ounces of gold and silver, CB and AM/FM radios with batteries, flashlights, I have a generator that I run for an hour or so every month, dog food for my English Bulldog and most any type of medication he might need, I shoot for recreation and collect every type of weapon so I have 30+ firearms with a few set aside for self defence purposes each with 1K+ rounds of ammo, survival and medical books, rope, GPS’s signaling devices, fire starting sticks matches….and just about everything else I could every think anyone would need if society fell apart and everyone where left to their own means without any outside help and people became desperate…like to the point that they will kill you for your food

    So I am just curious how well supplied those outside of my neighborhood paradise are, I know that in my area most people have taken the time to be prepared, we had massive fires in our area a few years back and the local Churches and schools were literally overflowing with donated supplies that people had on hand but I also know that there are people who don’t plan ahead and/or think the government should take care all their needs “Katrina-New Orleans” is a great example of the dangers of ignorance and lack of planning ahead
    its not like all this stuff just sits around, I use some of it for camping, power outages etc.
    total I doubt I have more than $25K invested, heck I have $75K in tools just to fill up my tool chest and work shop
    I really doubt the implosion of government will cause 90%+ of people to die
    guess no one can give an answer so I guess I will be defending myself and family against you folks when your starving…don’t worry I am a competitive shooter so it will be a clean shot as long as you hold still

    The movie will be called “It’s not that cold here, really.” and it will be an American comedy produced by ME!

    The movie will be about a dumb American gangster from New Jersey who decides to leave his gang town and visit a more peaceful place called….Canada.

    He decides to travel to Toronto in mid-July and his family talks him out of it telling him “it’s VERY COLD in Canada, it’s a freezing cold country!” So he rebelliously drives to New York/Ontario border with 16 North Face jackets, a survival kit, a battery generator to heat the car, a 4-week supply of emergency food, a portable stove, 16 containers of mosquito repellent, a hunting knife. And a guide to survivng Polar attacks in the arctic wilderness. And emergency bottles of water, emergency toilet paper, for his summer trip to Toronto, Ontario. He’s an idiot.

    He gets to the Canada border and they ask him where he’s going!!!! He says “Toronto for the July weekend.”

    Customs official: What have you brought here???? 16 jackets, emergency supplies, bear repellant????

    Guy: Because my friend said it’s FREEZING COLD in Canada.

    Customs official gets skeptical because he thinks perhaps this guy is planning to stay the winter, either that or hide out. And overstay his welcome and not plan on leaving the country. They keep him at the border for a few days.

    The guy starts USING his survival kit food and water to feed himself while sitting in the immigration customs office. Just to give him what he asked for, they purposely put the AC on 10 degrees celsius so he can freeze inside the immigration and customs building.

    He ends up being held over in the border office until the weekend is over, so they tell him to make a U-turn and USA customs will take it from there.

    They say “I hope you enjoyed your stay. Next time, do some research before you plan a trip to Toronto.”

    It would be pretty funny.
    Or you can make it where they do let him into Toronto and then it just so happens the city experiences a black-out like a few summers ago, and the guy thinks it’s ALWAYS like that
    You know? I’ve been in MANY Canadian cities. Intentionally, the last place I want to visit in Canada, after I see all the other provinces including the maritimes, is TORONTO.
    Isn’t this fascinating? See everything except Toronto, and then Finally…..Toronto.
    Edit Dangerma: Definitely would put you in the credits. The thing though is going straight north by road, you can’t go much farther than Kapuskasing. Or the road to James Bay. The only opportunity to drive FAR north is to go west of Edmonton. Unless of course you fly

  • Babeha says:

    I’ve been plotting a fantasy novel concerning the theme of revenge or vengeance. It begins when the protagonist, a young man, is thrown into a survival situation with a family that includes a middle aged husband and wife, their teenage daughter and small boy. The survival setting is sort of a swamp, with dangerous critters in it.

    The protagonist saves the daughters’ life from a gator-like creature early in the book, and the girl regards him as her hero. But the parents don’t want their daughter to have sex yet, so they turn against him.

    The group finds the emergency supply dump, but there’s not enough food to go around, so while the family members eat well, the protagonist is kept on short rations. Very short. He’d have starved if a rescue party from a searching spaceship had not found them by their cook fire.

    On the way through space, the spaceship is damaged and the same small group (the protagonist young man and the four-member family) jets away in an escape pod. The vehicle lands on a much drier planet. There’s a few trees and streams, but the planet is mostly scrub forest and desert. The group spreads out to explore their surroundings. This time, the protagonist young man finds the emergency supply dump first, as well as its only key. However, the father of the family finds the weapons dump and its key, and the protagonist hears the gun shot.

    Knowing that he isn’t strong enough to withhold the key from the father, and not wanting to be starved again, the protagonist raids the food supply dump for as much as he’ll need to eat for two weeks, plus one or two other things, relocks the food supply storage locker (which can’t be opened without the key because it’s built like an armored safe), and heads off into the arid hills.

    Daddy-o, back there, has all the guns. But the protagonist has all the food. And he’s moving away from Daddy-o as fast as he can hike. When the family finds the locked food compartment, they see the protagonist’s footprints and signs that the compartment had recently been opened. The key is nowhere to be found (’cause the protagonist took it with him). The parents figure out that they are being repaid for their earlier unfairness, and Daddy-o vows to hunt down the “miscreant” and force him to give up the key and whatever food he has on him. The chase is on.

    Now, the question is: should I allow Daddy-o to catch the protagonist? Or not? If I do, should I make it so that the protagonist wins the fight, or should Daddy-o win? Should the loser be killed or spared? What of the daughter? Would the protagonist or Daddy-o relent for her sake?

    How would you write the story?
    I know! On the desert planet, I’ll have the protagonist run off WITH both the girl and the food. She won’t know he’s locked the food locker door, though. The protagonist plans to get his revenge on the parents for starving him AND get the girl too! Daddy-o will be hunting the Protag for both the key and his daughter. The Protag will have to prevent the daughter from learning that he’s starving her parents and little brother. Heh heh, this could be good!

    What do they know that our government is not talking about?

    In 2006 the European Union rapidly drew up and deployed plans to build a “Doomsday Seed Vault” to store millions of seeds from countries around the world in case of a catastrophic event. Previous reports suggest that the US Government Is Preparing For Unlikely Events Like War, Catastrophic Collapse of Society, and Even Asteroids. Among the preparations, the US government, like Russia, is building underground bunkers and military bases. The U.S. is reportedly building these bunkers so rapidly, and on such a large scale, that private contractors are unable to acquire materials to build bunkers for individual clients. In recent years we’ve also learned that the US government is one of, if not the largest buyer of survival foods like freeze dried foods and MRE’s for emergency preparedness deployment. We’ve also recently learned that Department of Homeland Security has committed to “regionalizing” supplies across 15 regional emergency supply warehouses.

    According to RT, the official story from government officials is that the bunkers being built in Russia are for the general population and are necessary because there are currently only enough shelters to house about half of Moscow’s 11 million inhabitants. Most of the shelters built before and after World War II are either dilapidated or have been converted into public areas like restaurants.

    Though the bunkers are supposed to be designed to shelter the population in the event of a nuclear attack, government officials say it’s only a precaution and they do not expect such an attack or nuclear outbreak (e.g.
    Chernobyl) to occur. Neither RT or the Russian government provided estimates for the cost of the facilities. A Popular Mechanics article that reviewed a number of different types of bunkers and building practices had varying prices depending on the type of shelter. Since the proposed Russian bunkers would hold roughly 1000 people each (based on the population count and other details), one could estimate that the lowest price point for a bunker this size, with basic necessities like bathrooms and reserve food for a day or two, may run in the area of around $100,000 – $200,000. This would put a conservative price tag for 5000 shelters anywhere from half a billion to a billion dollars. A significant investment, indeed.

    The question that is likely on the minds of the preparedness community, especially those who have followed the rapid expansion of preparedness initiatives is, “why the haste?”

    Do the European Union, United States, and Russia anticipate some event to occur in the future, or are these measures being taken strictly as precautionary measures – just in case?

    One can only hope that governments are simply being proactive and not actively planning to deal with a catastrophic event unforeseen by the general public, but known to certain elements within emergency planning agencies.

    This and other reports we’ve covered over the last eighteen months should serve as a warning to those who don’t believe a widespread disaster, natural or man-made, can occur.

    If governments are spending billions of dollars on emergency preparations, there’s probably a good reason for it. It could be global stimulus projects during tough economic times, corrupt politicians working contruction deals for their buddies, or maybe they really are planning for a disaster.

    In an age where nuclear war is not supposed to be a threat because of disarmament and unified global governance, it is quite interesting that the Russians are making such a large investment.

    I am putting together some emergency survival kits for me and my family. I need to know how many calories a person needs a day to survive. I’ve done some searching and found multiple answers. Everything from equations to calculators. Some say 1600 a day. Others say 2400 a day. But when I’ve searched ready made kits, they only supply 800 calorie food bars per day. What does a person need to stay alive?

    Can Soylent Green happen in Large cities like NY and London? large population in cities less fresh supply food?
    Im currently watching a film called Soylent green, I put it on pause to see if this scary situation could occur, we have no places to grow food or be self sufficient in our large cities such as London and New York, we rely heavily on shops to supply us for survival, but with overcrouding or an Emergency would we be able to survive or in the future in a non emergency with the population of the world increasing would we have enough food to feed the world population say by 2025?

    What do they know that our government is not talking about?

    In 2006 the European Union rapidly drew up and deployed plans to build a “Doomsday Seed Vault” to store millions of seeds from countries around the world in case of a catastrophic event. Previous reports suggest that the US Government Is Preparing For Unlikely Events Like War, Catastrophic Collapse of Society, and Even Asteroids. Among the preparations, the US government, like Russia, is building underground bunkers and military bases. The U.S. is reportedly building these bunkers so rapidly, and on such a large scale, that private contractors are unable to acquire materials to build bunkers for individual clients. In recent years we’ve also learned that the US government is one of, if not the largest buyer of survival foods like freeze dried foods and MRE’s for emergency preparedness deployment. We’ve also recently learned that Department of Homeland Security has committed to “regionalizing” supplies across 15 regional emergency supply warehouses.

    According to RT, the official story from government officials is that the bunkers being built in Russia are for the general population and are necessary because there are currently only enough shelters to house about half of Moscow’s 11 million inhabitants. Most of the shelters built before and after World War II are either dilapidated or have been converted into public areas like restaurants.

    Though the bunkers are supposed to be designed to shelter the population in the event of a nuclear attack, government officials say it’s only a precaution and they do not expect such an attack or nuclear outbreak (e.g.
    Chernobyl) to occur. Neither RT or the Russian government provided estimates for the cost of the facilities. A Popular Mechanics article that reviewed a number of different types of bunkers and building practices had varying prices depending on the type of shelter. Since the proposed Russian bunkers would hold roughly 1000 people each (based on the population count and other details), one could estimate that the lowest price point for a bunker this size, with basic necessities like bathrooms and reserve food for a day or two, may run in the area of around $100,000 – $200,000. This would put a conservative price tag for 5000 shelters anywhere from half a billion to a billion dollars. A significant investment, indeed.

    The question that is likely on the minds of the preparedness community, especially those who have followed the rapid expansion of preparedness initiatives is, “why the haste?”

    Do the European Union, United States, and Russia anticipate some event to occur in the future, or are these measures being taken strictly as precautionary measures – just in case?

    One can only hope that governments are simply being proactive and not actively planning to deal with a catastrophic event unforeseen by the general public, but known to certain elements within emergency planning agencies.

    This and other reports we’ve covered over the last eighteen months should serve as a warning to those who don’t believe a widespread disaster, natural or man-made, can occur.

    If governments are spending billions of dollars on emergency preparations, there’s probably a good reason for it. It could be global stimulus projects during tough economic times, corrupt politicians working contruction deals for their buddies, or maybe they really are planning for a disaster.

    In an age where nuclear war is not supposed to be a threat because of disarmament and unified global governance, it is quite interesting that the Russians are making such a large investment.

    Say during natural disasters when you’re out of the house, rendered homeless and cut off from other forms of regular food.

    . first and foremost thank you for taking the time to read what i have written for a idea in agriculture that 70 years old., It is CHANGE THAT IS POSSIBLE, it mite benefit all of us. Ushering in a new GOLDEN AGE. You have my vote because I believe in you, if I can help out in anyway I will. So here is the idea and thank you again to whoever reads this, please forgive my grammatical errors, and imagine the idea of this kinds of independence and appreciation that would grow from this. Now there would be taxes involved yes, but in the long-term wouldn’t it be beneficial to the next generation. or are they not worth it? Better us then another Nation right, it will happen at some point the real question is when, and is sooner better then later?

    A Hydroponic Chemical Treatment and Distribution Plant

    In every town or city, right next to the pre existing water supply and treatment Plant. it would recycle the chemical excess through the water filtration/treatment plant and put those recycled chemicals get ride of the root that broke off the plants, or hydroponic rocks, and clean the water and equalize the pH in the water supply. put the nutrient chemicals back into the hydroponic chemical plant where they separated and put into there own holding containers. After it has been feed into the sewage/piping to the apartments or houses. And the cycle keeps repeating. like it does with already preexisting water supply and treatment facility’s. that could help feed a populous during a time of crisis or out of good will.

    Economic Boost, Higher Population, and New Jobs

    when you build something BIG A whole new job trade and economic boost would occur. Through hydroponics and you produce a better plant though. Farmers could dedicate there fields could be feed the hydroponic solution for the crop, it would grow faster, and juicer. they could grow rarer foods, opening up new markets Farmers could dedicate more time to growing corn to make ethanol making gas cheaper, instead of growing already preexisting food grown by people in there homes or apartments. Or. It would teach a better appreciation of nature show the world that America is taking steps to solving hunger Better plants mean better health, increase in population.

    Time of Crisis or Disaster

    There are many benefits in desperate times especially now, If there ever was wide spread panic and a great economic depression occurred it would stop starvation amongst the middle class, millions would raid the local supermarket and clean them out. Or if a nuclear war happened and certain areas got hit and there is no way to get to the areas of food supply, you would have a decent amount of food growth for a city causing millions not to die.

    Education System Idea

    A gardening class in the school system for every age setup to teach people how to grow certain things. It would appreciation for nature and all life, it would teach survival skills also and many more ideas and a way to release stress.

    Toxin Control

    the plant would have checkpoint setup through out the city that would analyze the water within every city block. or area were the water would run through a filter to check to see if someone is tampering with the water supply by putting poisons into it to kill millions or to see if someone is growing something illegal, it the pipes could be analyzed by computers with the right software at certain locations, via Wii Fii and at the main control hub. The Control center would monitor the chemical readings and shut it off in case of a emergency, whatever it mite be, whether it is with a high amount of poisons chemicals by terrorist. Or if pipes break in certain areas and contaminates the water supply of middle Big Pipe (water) surround smaller pipes chemicals then a case of all of that, depending on the type of Climate like cold environments.

    Why it wouldn’t Occur

    Why I could see this not happening is because big wig or spiteful people who like to shoot down different ideas. that and certain corporation of farmers would lose money cause the consumer would now have the power, and they mite not want this to occur, I’m sure Corporate farming company’s have lobbyists in Washington D.C. except for themselves and there company’s, so they could maintain control instead of a community of real farmers, real people. And printing this idea out and giving to my town’s public officials and representatives. The domino effect has occurred now really 1 way or another I just want you if to please bring it up.

    Conclusion

    you have everything to gain and truly nothing to lose. You would usher in a golden age people would see if explained right that they would invest tax dollars to out of sheer benefits of the next generation.

    If you believe in what i am saying if you can see and imagine it, then talk about maybe we can make this dream a reality, because talking about a issue or spreading a idea can help push progress. people are near sig
    If you believe in what i am saying if you can see and imagine it, then talk about maybe we can make this dream a reality, because talking about a issue or spreading a idea can help push progress. people are near sighted most of the time so they need to be shown things up close to really understand. So please give me your opinions on this idea?
