JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Locusts by the millions are nibbling their way across a large part of Africa in the worst outbreak some places have seen in 70 years. Is this another effect of a changing climate? Yes, researchers say. An unprecedented food security crisis may be the result.

The locusts “reproduce rapidly and, if left unchecked, their current numbers could grow 500 times by June,” the United Nations says.

Here’s a look at what’s going on and where the voracious insects might be going next.

It's far more to do with them being unable to afford or be permitted to use insecticides.
The green fascists would rather see them starve than state the truth.

Locust plagues been around forever almost.  Check out Exodus and Revelations. 

Indeed you only have to look at the bible the first thing that comes to mind with all this.

Ancient Civilizations Most Feared Enemy Unleashes Apocalyptic Plague On Modern World.

Apocalyptic plague of desert locusts nears wiping out crops that feed one-third of humanity.

Belatedly awakening to this grave apocalyptic global threat, this report continues, is the American mainstream media—best exampled by the conservative New York Post putting out their headline “UN Warns Of ‘Major Shock’ As Africa Locust Outbreak Spreads”, wherein they state: “A medium-size swarm of locusts can eat the same amount of food as the entire population of Kenya, and in one day can eat the same amount of food as everybody here in the tri-state area, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York”—and the leftist Washington Post putting out their headline “Hundreds Of Billions Of Locusts — Fueled By Conflict And Climate Change — Are Swarming East Africa”, wherein they describe what is now occurring with the words: “From a distance, it looks like billowing smoke…But as it nears, the swarm of locusts known and feared by the world’s most ancient civilizations, comes into focus: billions upon billions of them, thick as a blizzard, uncountable as raindrops, a jaw-dropping procession of the ravenous creatures of biblical infamy, flailing and flapping in the air, blocking out the sun like a bad omen”—but whose grimmest reality about remains the fact that the window to contain this crisis is closing fast—as the world has only until the beginning of March to bring this infestation under control as that is when the rain and planting season begins—as these massive swarms are highly mobile; the terrain often difficult; the logistical challenges immense—but if left unchecked—and with expected additional rains—these already historic locust swarm numbers could increase another 500 times by June.
