- Food production and food supply are central to all preparedness work. If we do not have food, nothing else means anything, says Karlis Neretnieks, Major General and former Principal of the Defense College, now employed by the Royal Academy of Sciences.
62 percent of Danish land is cultivated. The Danes produce 5-6 times more food than they can consume. Sweden, however, is completely different, and vulnerable. In just one week, the stores may be go empty.
For years, politicians, journalists and pundits have used a figure of 50 percent in terms of Sweden's self-sufficiency. But ATL's survey shows that that the figure is simply wrong. In fact, a longer crisis situation with import routes cut off, would equal disaster.
After a week, Sweden would stop and food in the stores run out. A blockade would hit the country hard, says an analysts. The decline in food production in combination with political decisions by former governments have created today's situation.
- This society can not handle a serious crisis, even less a war. We have made ourselves vulnerable in a terrifying way, says Karlis Neretnieks, to ATL.
The Swedes better start prepping, because the crisis is coming. It is inevitable now.
