In other words, barges are by far the most fuel-efficient and cost effective way to move goods. This is why, of course, many of the world's largest cities are located on rivers. It's all about trade and transportation.

But when geoengineering is being actively pursued (see White House geoengineering programs, below) ...

Global food, commodities supply chain crisis set to explode as falling river levels crush barge traffic in US

October 18, 2022 - barges to be 'grounded,' so to speak. That's because, as Premack notes, it is harvest season for America's farmers, and they are needing to move their crops to processing plants and to various other markets. Besides a severe reduction in barge traffic, there are ongoing labor problems in the rail industry, and as such, that backup system is also in jeopardy.

"Halted or slowed barge traffic is worrisome for the world at large too. American exports of coal are key ...

U.S. government FORCES railroads to carry extremely toxic chemicals even if they don’t want to

March 03, 2023 - barges do not have this same obligation and may refuse to carry hazmat at their discretion. Union Pacific does not make Toxic Inhalation Hazard materials, own the tank cars that move TIH or decide the origin or destination to which it is shipped.

Truth be told, UP and NS would more than likely never say no to transporting these chemicals in the first place because to do so would be to ...

October 21, 2022 -

Alaskan officials say an unprecedented decline in crab numbers has rendered the region unfit for the normal catch, delivering another blow to the food supply chain. (Related: Mississippi River barges are having a difficult time transporting food due to drought-induced water level drops.)

The more than one million buildings in NYC, which include the iconic Empire State Building and Chrysler Building, were found to weigh nearly 1.7 trillion pounds, which is roughly the equivalent of 140 million elephants.

ANALYSIS: Biden regime to wage WAR OF TERROR against America as punishment for voting red

November 07, 2022 - barges, boats, long haul trucks, construction equipment and much more. Without diesel, America's economy grinds to a halt virtually overnight.

EXCLUSIVE: Hot fusion breakthrough only “allowed” because of COLD FUSION (LENR) revolution now under way

Severe drought in South America wreaking havoc on shipping, energy, fishing and drinking water supplies

October 27, 2021 - barges were able to be loaded, albeit at 50 percent capacity.

The convoy of barges normally used for this can haul a total of 30,000 tons; it would take 350 trucks to accomplish the same feat.

Welcome to your police state future: You will EAT CRICKETS and DRINK PEE on a floating prison barge

July 15, 2022 -

The floating barge was likely built as a way for authorities to evade oversight and local laws by claiming to be in "waterways" rather than on land. This barge, shown in this YouTube video, is the perfect representation of the future of humanity under globalist police state control.

These barges are also known as "FEMA prison barges" and are believed to be used at GITMO. They are in many ways equivalent to CIA "black sites" where prisoners are routinely ...
