by Captain John Konrad (gCaptain) According to The Economist the absolute levels of global hunger in 2022 could be the highest ever, as an exceptional set of shipping problems threaten the world. The UN’s International Maritime Organization has brokered a deal to get ships into Ukraine’s ports to get grain exports on to the global market might help but over 40 million tons need to escape this year and farmers will need seed, pesticides, tractor parts, and lots of diesel to sustain future harvests.

This short gCaptain film dives deep into the details of the trade deal, explores the difficulties revealed so far, and discovers the vital steps needed to fix these problems before millions (possibly billions) starve.
