I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect us from these shortages. Give our leaders wisdom as they seek to care for the environment without damaging our way of life.

The whole world is pushing for clean, green energy, although these supposedly climate-friendly policies may cause problems of their own.

From The National Pulse. The push for “green” energy alternatives is causing a shortage of sulfuric acid, a resource critical for the production of food and lithium-ion batteries, according to a new report from the University College London.

Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.


The paper, published in Geographical Journal, explains how over 80 percent of the global sulfur supply currently comes from the desulfurisation of fossil fuels. Pushes for decarbonization … will create a “shortfall” in the annual supply of sulfuric acid between 100 and 320 million tonnes by 2040, researchers estimate.

This dramatic decrease would occur, however, amidst a rising demand for sulfuric acid, which could reach up to 400 million tons by 2040. …

Shortages of sulfuric acid would have far-reaching ramifications, as it is an essential resource for producing phosphorus fertilizers that help maintain the global food supply. …

“Our concern is that the dwindling supply could lead to a transition period when green tech outbids the fertilizer industry for the limited more expensive sulfur supply, creating an issue with food production,” adds Simon Day, a researcher at the University College London’s Institute for Risk & Disaster Reduction and study coauthor. …

It would be far better for both people and the planet if we stopped using chemical fertilizers altogether. Organic farming/gardening has sustained our food supply since the creation of the world, produces far more nutritional food, and doesn’t damage our God-designed ecosystem.

Lord, teach us how to live on this earth in harmony with the natural processes You designed for our well-being. Help us understand that You have the answers to every challenge we face. You surround us with Your love in every time of need. Thank You!

P.S. You might want to start saving seeds, particularly of heritage or open-pollinated varieties (not hybrids). This is an area where the New World Order is already planning to curtail supplies.

Do not fall for more fear mongering. As long as cows are in the food chain there will be manure for fertilizer.
Greater concern may be over chemicals developed in outdoor garages.
The Father knows the enemy uses fear. HE SAYS ” MY PEOPLE WILL DO EXPLOITS.”
