Feeling pretty good about starving people around the world

I admit it, hell I'm proud of it. I'm feeling damn good about starving people around the world. So they starve, that's just tough folks. I'm with the rest of the civilized world, the so called first world, in saying to you folks starving, to hell with you. We've got to have Ethanol in our fuel, and if that means you don't have anything to eat, that the estimated 852 Million people that are now hungry, may even double in the next couple years, and in fact the only chink in my armor to make me feel less good is that it may not work.

The researchers said that farmers under economic pressure to produce biofuels will increasingly "plow up more forest or grasslands," releasing much of the carbon formerly stored in plants and soils through decomposition or fires. Globally, more grasslands and forests will be converted to growing the crops to replace the loss of grains when U.S. farmers convert land to biofuels, the study said.

Now, this is obviously contrary to our stated goal of stopping global warming. I'm here to propose a ban on new farm land production. In other words, I want the UN to prohibit the production of new farm land. We must prevent the plowing up of our sacred forest and jungles to make more land to farm corn and grains to save our planet. Damn it, we environmentalists just don't give a damn if someone somewhere is starving because food isn't able to be produced. We've never cared, and we're not about to care now.

When we were warned about this problem, a year ago, and we didn't care then. Damn it, we're trying to save the earth from a non existent global warming issue. Look we've got the coldest winter on record in some areas. More snow than the biggest year of records, 1966. In fact, now we're looking at a new problem, a new ice age where tens of thousands of people might be cold if we don't change to ethanol.

For you, the nearly billion or so people who are starving, we the rest of the world say to you, tough. We've got to do something to change the planet. We can't keep being part of the problem, like you all, hopelessly consuming food and producing carbon dioxide. Why do you have any idea of your carbon foot print when you consider the ships, trucks, and workers who bring the food to you?

This is part of our new environmentalist message. Tough Love. We love to act like we care, and if our polices once enacted harm someone, tough.
