Okay, so first the global warming advocates tell us we need to cut down fossil fuels because of carbon emissions.
Then Green politicians start demanding more biofuel use to replace the oil and petrol that's running out.
Then, because foodstuffs are being diverted to biofuel production, grain prices soar, other food prices follow, and 100 million people end up starving, according to a top secret World Bank report that got leaked to the Guardian newspaper.
I have a potential solution to the problem. Reverse the production of biofuels immediately. And in the interim, while the world's starving await the next harvest, let them eat their Greens.
When will these back-to-the-middle-ages, yoghurt-knitting hobbits stop concocting junk science to justify their Luddism?
And when will the rest of us stop listening to them? When one billion are starving due to greenwash? Two billion?
