Gradual Increase in World-Wide Famine

This quatrain was interpreted February 2008.

Century I, Quatrain 67
The great famine which I see approaching will often alternate then become world wide. It will be so vast and long lasting that (they) will grab roots from the trees and children from the breast.

Interpretation with Explanatory Remarks
Nostradamus’ tells us that initially there will be food shortages in different geographic areas, alternating from one location to another. Eventually, conditions will deteriorate throughout the globe and they will end up as a great, world-wide, famine.

Judging from the other quatrains where he describes deteriorating global warming conditions, the implication is that the major reason for this great famine is climate changes which will adversely impact agricultural production (and the fishing industry).

This quatrain relates to several others cited in Overall, the projected conditions are depicted to become so bleak, to the point they look like a re-write of Saint John’s Apocalypse.

General Comment: Famine can result from insufficient food supplies in the marketplace, but it could also result from a variety of other factors, such as, high food prices, unemployment or lack of adequate disposable income, and inadequate agricultural productivity due to global warming or to radioactive contamination. However, Nostradamus tells us that the famine he so vividly describes relates to global warming (changing weather patterns/climate conditions), which will initially be localized to various places, but eventually become widespread.

Note that this quatrain complements other quatrains, such as century II, quatrain 75.
