A renowned international war correspondent has warned that Europeans are “going to freeze, then starve” this winter due to the energy crisis.
Journalist Michael Yon, a U.S. Army Special Forces veteran, is warning that the crisis will expand outside of Europe as global famine looms due to multiple interlinked crises.
During a Monday interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, Yon pointed out that the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines has exacerbated shortages that have already caused energy costs to soar.
He notes that the energy crisis comes amid a rapidly deepening global shortage of nitrogen-based fertilizers.
Together, these crises are driving up the cost of food while threatening the ability of families to heat their homes and cook their meals.
“We’re actually beyond the precipice at this point,” Yon said.
“We’re falling. It’s too late.
“There’s going to be famine, and the question is, ‘How big and how many people are going to get hit?'”
Yon said some people “talk about energy as if everything’s interchangeable.”
He argues that people have been led to believe that “solar panels and windmills and nuclear plants can replace natural gas, which [they] simply cannot.”
All of the 26 major plants in Europe that produce nitrogen-based fertilizers are either closed down or on the verge of closing, he notes.
“This will lead to famine,” he warned.
“It’s just mathematics at this point.”
The loss of the Nord Stream pipeline already has driven people in Germany and other European nations to cut down trees to heat their homes.
“People are going to literally freeze to death in Germany,” Yon said.
“They’re going to freeze, and then they’re going to starve.”
Many countries around the world, including Brazil and India, rely on European-produced fertilizers.
The production of fertilizer is being suppressed to meet green agenda goals to supposedly combat “climate change.”
Yon warns that those countries are “simply going to have famine.”
“There’s just no way out of it at this point.”
He explains that pandemics, famines, and wars create a “triangle of death” that comes together.
“You get one, you always get the other two,” he said.
“There is no exception.
“If you get a large war or a large famine or a large pandemic, you will always get the other two.
