This is from an article in the London Telegraph by Christopher Booker...
It is now more than 200 years since the great astronomer William Herschel observed a correlation between wheat prices and sunspots. When the latter were few in number, he noted, the climate turned colder and drier, crop yields fell and wheat prices rose. In the past two years, sunspot activity has dropped to its lowest point for a century. One of our biggest worries is that our politicians are so fixated on the idea that CO2 is causing global warming that most of them haven't noticed that the problem may be that the world is not warming but cooling, with all the implications that has for whether we get enough to eat.
It is appropriate that another contributory factor to the world's food shortage should be the millions of acres of farmland now being switched from food crops to biofuels, to stop the world warming, Last year even the experts of the European Commission admitted that, to meet the EU's biofuel targets, we will eventually need almost all the food-growing land in Europe.
The global-warming hoax has become inviolable dogma for craven politicians, smelly hippies, eco-religionists, and easily tricked school children. So complete is the charade that entire governments are pushing forward with ridiculous programs to pour their valuable food grain into the gas tanks of cars. Our government is dictating that car companies must, MUST manufacture high-mileage, low-emissions autos, that all but the stupidest and most gullible Americans will not buy.
Because the Earth is cooling and not warming, charlatans like Al Gore have adopted the phrase "climate change", so they can blame literally ANY weather phenomenon on CO2. I don't think people like him care if millions starve because of food shortages caused by the moronic bio-fuels mandates, because after all, humans are nothing more than parasites on the planet and the fewer of us there are, the better.
