Starving Poor People to Save the Planet from Global Warming

Posted by PITHOCRATES - February 4th, 2012

Week in Review

To save the planet we’re going to stop burning fossil fuel in our cars.  Instead, we’re going to burn food.  And what could possibly go wrong with that?  I mean, what other uses does food have (see Beef prices set to soar by RANDY SHORE posted 1/31/2012 on The Vancouver Sun)?

Soaring feed prices across North America and drought conditions in the United States are pushing the cost of meat — beef in particular — through the roof….

The commodity price of corn is another factor driving the price of popular meats skyward, say meat producers. The price of corn grown for animal feed has doubled since the summer of 2010, driven in part by rising demand for corn as a source of ethanol fuel…

Increases in the price of corn in response to the U.S. push to use the grain for ethanol production has also affected the price of pork…

“[U.S. energy policy] did motivate producers to grow more corn, but it wasn’t nearly enough to meet the increase in demand,” said Rice. “That increased competition drove up the price of corn and that was a huge hit [to pork producers].”

Rich people will still enjoy their tenderloin.  As they always will.  High price or not.  But we make something else out of beef.  Hamburger.  The staple of low-income family dining room tables everywhere.  Meatloaf.  Hamburger Helper.  Things I’ve enjoyed as a child.  And I’m not ashamed to say that I still enjoy.  Cholesterol levels be damned.

So we’re saving the planet (from the man-made global warming bogeyman that was created by big world government ‘scientists’ at the University of East Anglia) by making it harder for poor people to have their protein.  Of course, the environmentalists are okay with this.  As they don’t much like people to begin with.  Especially meat-eating people.

Think about this the next time you go grocery shopping.  While you decide what not to buy.  So you can afford your beef and pork products.  To save the planet from a man-made phenomenon.  The man-made fear of global warming.
