Continuing its rapid post-COVID economic recovery, it has been revealed that China created more billionaires in 2020 than the rest of the world combined.

According to the Hurun Global Rich List, 259 billionaires broke into the exclusive club, meaning China now boasts a total of 1,058 billionaires and is the first country in the world to break the 1,000 level.

In comparison, the United States created 70 new billionaires in 2020, although people who were already billionaires like Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates saw their profits surge during the pandemic.

“China – the country where Covid first emerged and which has been accused of covering up its early spread, leading to the pandemic – has seen its economy boom while the rest of the world’s finances have been hammered by the disease,” reports the Daily Mail.

As we highlighted back in December, China is also set to outstrip every other country in terms of GDP growth over the next two years.

“A graph proposing GDP projections for various nations and areas showed that China was the only nation on the list to enjoy real GDP growth in 2020, with 1.8%, 8% in 2021 and 4.9% in 2022,” reported Sputnik.

In reality, China ended up posting even better numbers for 2020 with a 2.3% GDP rise, the only major economy in the world to grow at all last year.

“In comparison, the United States, having suffered a 3.7% drop in 2020, is set to achieve 3.2% and 3.5% real GDP growth in 2021 and 2022 respectively.”

TV Presenter Warns Global Food Shortages Will Lead Lead to Cannibalism

And he only appeared to be half-joking.

TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson said that global food shortages caused by the war in Ukraine could eventually lead to cannibalism, and he only appeared to be half-joking.

The Grand Tour presenter, who owns a famous farm shop in the Cotswolds, made the comments in his latest Sunday Times piece.

Clarkson said the situation caused by the war in Ukraine was leading him to suffer sleepless nights and “a few chin-scratching moments of despair.”

The former Top Gear presenter, who also owns a farm which was the basis of his hit Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm, says more and more farmers in the UK are allowing their fields to lie fallow due to soaring fertiliser costs.

“The problem is that next year many farmers will decide that, because of the costs involved, they’ll use less fertiliser,” he wrote. “Some will doubtless try to use none at all. Others will try to use cardboard or lawn clippings or faeces instead. Either way they will produce less food. Some farmers — I know of three in my area alone — have already decided to fallow their fields next year and grow nothing at all.”

“And this is not just happening in the UK. It’s a global phenomenon and it could well result in there being maybe 20 per cent less food in the shops than is necessary. That’s bad. And then it gets worse because, between them, Russia and Ukraine grow more than a quarter of global wheat exports.”

Clarkson worries the world is “hurtling down a well-watered slide into the pit of hunger, misery and death.”

He also slammed the government for failing to adequately respond to the cost of living crisis and cautioned that people can “live without heat or clothing or even sex,” but that “they cannot live without food.”

“Hunger makes people eat their neighbours,” wrote Clarkson.

Some food products, including sunflower oil, are already being rationed in the UK due to Ukraine being a major source for sunflower seeds.

As we highlighted earlier, Italian League party leader Matteo Salvini warned that worsening food shortages could cause 20 million African migrants to flood Europe if a ceasefire in Ukraine is not agreed by the end of this month.

“Without peace there will be famine in the autumn and 20 million Africans will be ready to go,” he said.

In his article, Clarkson pointed out that “nearly a third of the wheat Ukraine grows goes to Africa, and it won’t be getting any this summer,” warning that the existing migrant crisis will represent a “trickle” compared to the tsunami that could be around the corner.

European Commission VP Tells People to ‘Support Ukraine’ by Taking Fewer Showers & Not Washing Their Clothes

Technocrats continue to hide agenda to reduce living standards behind Russian sanctions.

Published

The vice-president of the European Commission suggested citizens should ‘support Ukraine’ and the embargoes on Russia by taking fewer showers, not driving cars, and airing their clothes instead of washing them.

Yes, really.

Frans Timmermans, the Dutch vice-president of the bloc’s executive body, made the remarks during a meeting of the European Parliament’s Environment Committee.

According to Timmermans, Europeans must “Heat less, ride a bike and ventilate your clothes instead of washing,” in order to support punitive measures against Russia that have exacerbated a cost of living crisis for hundreds of millions of people in the west.

The technocrat, who personally doesn’t really need to worry too much about soaring energy costs given his $250,000 a year salary, urged “fellow citizens that they too could do something to move less money into Putin’s pocket.”

“Of course, they can also choose not to do anything, but they can also choose to heat less, go by bike, not by car, take a shower for a shorter time or to ventilate their clothes instead of washing them out,” the Dutch politician said.

Meanwhile, Diederik Samsom, Chief of Staff for Frans Timmermans, asserted, “Energy will be much more expensive as of now. Energy was way too cheap for the last 40 years.”

Samsom, who earns upwards of $200,000 a year, lectured Europeans on how their previous quality of life was dependent on the “unsustainable” combination of Russian fossil fuels and environmental devastation.

“We have profited from it and created enormous wealth at the expense of planet Earth and, as we realise right now, at the expense of geopolitical imbalances [with dependency on Russia],” said Samsom. “Both need to be repaired. In order to repair them we need to pay more for energy – and also for food. The two basic needs of life – food and energy – we have paid way too little for in the past 40 years.”

The advice follows Italy’s move to ration energy by banning air conditioning below 25 degrees celsius and heating higher than 19 degrees in all schools and public buildings.

As Germany’s inflation rate hits a 30 year high, citizens of that country are being told to take fewer showers, with dubious ‘experts’ claiming they will smell better after 3 weeks of now washing properly.

Government minister Peter Hauk also told Germans they should cope with soaring energy costs by merely turning off the heating and wearing warmer sweaters.

“You can withstand 15 degrees [Celsius] in winter in a sweater. No one dies of it. But people are dying elsewhere,” he said.

As we previously highlighted, globalist technocrats have seamlessly transitioned the ‘Great Reset’ agenda for a reduction in living standards into the call to ‘support Ukraine’.

Runaway inflation, soaring food and gas prices that were already a massive issue before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine can now be blamed on Putin while westerners are urged to make the sacrifice for the new religion of supporting ‘the current thing’.
