Phosphate-based fertilizers have helped spur agricultural gains in the past century, but the world may soon run out of them.

Natasha Gilbert on March 27, 2011 Leading chemists from around the world have warned that scarce natural resources, such as phosphate minerals mined for fertilisers, are “dwindling at an alarming rate” and shortages could hit within a generation.

Five scientific societies, including the Chinese Chemical Society, the German Chemical Society, and the UK’s Royal Society of Chemistry, warn in a report today that falling supplies of these essential elements are “a potentially more pressing concern than the decreasing supply of oil.”

“Little public awareness exists about the uncertain supplies of these key materials that we face today, and the potential future shortages. Secure, adequate supplies of these materials are essential for production of food, medicines, computers, and hundreds of other products,” adds Nancy Jackson, president of the American Chemical Society, which also contributed to the report.

My Comment:

With the global crisis of food shortage growing larger, it comes as no suprise that our natural resources are depleting at an alarming rate. It is a domino affect that will impact all.

Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior warned us this would be a sign prior to his coming.

Luke 21:11

There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

The signs of our Messiah’s return are everywhere. A choice has to be made by each and everyone one of us.

Revelation 13

16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Repent from your sins, and serve Our Lord Jesus Christ to be with Our King forever, or perish eternally.
