The Cowardly New World

The UN's World Food Programme has announced it is no longer going to be able to feed the estimated 90 million people around the world that it now serves. The WFP cited rising food costs as the reason they will not be able to continue without extra contributions from donor countries.

Purchasing costs have risen 50% in the last six months. The demand for grain crops for biofuel is a main factor in driving up food costs.



This is the scenario that will continue to be played out across the world as we follow the leadership of the environmentalists and the global warming alarmists. Farmers will find it more profitable to grow crops for biofuel than for food.

The poorest will starve. The rich won't have to give up anything, they can afford to buy their carbon offsets that allow them to continue to indulge in their profligate and opulent lifestyles, while they lecture us on the importance of erasing our carbon footprints . The rest of us will become the new "poor" of the world - struggling to pay taxes on energy usage, living under regulations imposed by self-proclaimed saviors of the world.

I would rather have global warming.

UN warns it cannot afford to feed the world

Damn it, if the New World can't afford to buy food and live off it's allowance it will have to get a job like I did.

I could use my lawn mowed, send the UN over.

The UN is largely responsible for the crisis what with the IPCC report and the hype about the dangers of fossil fuels.

In that case they better do a good job pulling weeds too!
