Global Warming Fears Fuel Starvation

We've pointed out before that the rise of ethanol and other biofuels in response to global warming fears was not only not the right answer, not only not better for the environment but was morally reprehensible as farmers turned to growing crops for fuel rather than for food.

As prices rise and grain stocks fall to an unprecedented low, people are already starving. While rich celebrities parade their carbon offsets and whip up frenzy over global warming fears, those who struggle in poverty are paying the real price. No carbon offset will buy them food, no pretty speeches about environmental issues will feed the starving children.

Despite the Chill, UN Claims Warming Continues

Despite that fact that there has been no warming in the last decade, and despite the fact that 2008 is predicted to be the coolest year worldwide since 2001, the UN has no intention of stopping the global warming propaganda.

WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud said while there would always be both cooler and warmer individual years, the overall trend in temperatures is still upwards.

He stated that you must look at trends over a period of time. He is thus treating the last ten years as an insufficient length of time to observe cooling. Yet, with 1998 as the last year to show an increase in global average temperature and the well-documented concerns about global cooling as recently as 1975, only 23 years previous, the cooling has gone on for nearly half as long as the warming trend did.

It may be after 20 or so years of downward trends in global temperatures that the UN will pull out their new report that will claim they conquered global warming successfully.
