Already hundreds of thousands of innocent children have been needlessly starved to death as a result of this. I have talked to an organization that feeds the hungry overseas and they agree about this. Its not in regards to increased temperatures causing the starvation, food production is up a lot in last 20 years, and temperatures are the same, the problem is that so much of that food is being burned instead of being fed to poor children.
The reason that food is being burned instead of being fed to poor people is because about 70% of the general public believe in the Global Warming Theory, although far less than 50% of degreed meteorologists that work as weather reporters do: http://aun-tv.com/2015/10/only-24-to-36-of-scientists-believe-in-obama-style-global-warming-ted-cruz-sierra-club-debate/
So with politicians help together they burn about 40% of the USA corn crop even though Al Gore years ago admitted corn ethanol is a worthless scam he was part of for selfish reasons. The former vice president (and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize) who promoted ethanol in his Oscar-winning film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” said that corn ethanol was a “mistake.” He went further, saying that he supported ethanol production because the first presidential primary is in Iowa, which produces more ethanol than any other state: “I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president,” he said. Gore also said that the “massive subsidies” given to ethanol are not “good policy.”
That drives up prices and reduces food supply and many poor people either starve or are stunted mentally and physically by malnutrition. This is of no concern to the rich like Al Gore, they can afford the higher prices and for millionaire farmers it is very profitable as it drive food costs up. The New York Times has written about the suffering caused by this in just one country:
Ethanol mandates are driving up child malnutrition and hunger in Guatemala. That country now has the fourth-highest rate of child malnutrition in the entire world (higher than in most war-torn African countries):
With its corn-based diet and proximity to the United States, Central America has long been vulnerable to economic riptides related to the United States’ corn policy. Now that the United States is using 40 percent of its crop to make biofuel, it is not surprising that tortilla prices have doubled in Guatemala, which imports nearly half of its corn.
In a country where most families must spend about two thirds of their income on food, ‘the average Guatemalan is now hungrier because of biofuel development.’. . .Roughly 50 percent of the nation’s children are chronically malnourished, the fourth-highest rate in the world, according to the United Nations.
The American renewable fuel standard mandates that an increasing volume of biofuel be blended into the nation’s vehicle fuel supply each year to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/06/science/earth/in-fields-and-markets-guatemalans-feel-squeeze-of-biofuel-demand.html
Note that is about 2.8 million chronically malnourished children in just one country.
That is what happens in the real world when people believe in “Global Warming”
This is not false prediction like Al Gore saying all Arctic sea ice would be gone by 2014 (there is more now than when he said it) http://aun-tv.com/2014/08/big-als-big-lie-artic-ice-did-not-disappear-in-2014-it-increased-will-gore-return-nobel-prize/ , or ABC saying in 2007 that by 2015 major portions of New York City would be underwater (none is). It is history and facts, those children are permanently stunted and dead as the result of “fighting Global Warming” and continue to die as a result of the highly flawed logic.
We have a real choice and a false choice in regards to this as this chart shows:
When this fellow puts ups up $ signs in that means in the real world to starve poor children, a belief that causing a global depression, with starvation and malnutrition for the poor is necessary even if we do not know if there is any problem to solve.
North Korea is one of the very best at CO2 emissions, as people are so poor, but starvation and malnutrition are terrible in North Korea.
In 2000, over 90% of the U.S. corn crop went to feed people and livestock, many in undeveloped countries, with less than 5% used to produce ethanol. In 2013, however, 40% went to produce ethanol, 45% was used to feed livestock, and only 15% was used for food and beverage. That 40% being burned today for no reason would eliminate a great deal of starvation and malnutrition.
Why the suffering? Because of videos like the below one, and possibly the man in it believes what he says, and is just extremely ignorant of the massive suffering that a global depression (the cure) would cause. And extremely ignorant that even “Global Warmers” have admitted that drastic action now would really make no difference if they are right, and none if they are wrong. The climate models pushed by the UN have proven to be completely false in the last 15 years.
Meteorologists understandably in a poll have lost faith in those UN climate models, after they have failed:
- Only 19 percent agree with the claim, “Global climate models are reliable in their projection for a warming of the planet.”
- Only 19 percent agree with the assertion, “Global climate models are reliable in their projections for precipitation and drought.”
