THE GREENS AND THEIR BLINKERED FOLLOWERS WANT YOU TO IGNORE.
Cameron Slater at www.whaleoil.co.nz highlights a further example of a bad outcome from an evangelical crusade that forms a base plank of the world wide 'green movement'.
In their crusade against fossil fuels, a serious disruption to the market has occurred with the conversion of grain from basic food staple to bio fuel production leaving many more people starving throughout the world than is necessary, that is just market reality from subsidising the warm cuddly apparition that bio fuel presents. The result, a significant escalation of price for all basic food grains
That market interference has been exacerbated in Peru with a food fad arising around Quinoa a staple of Peru and Bolivia, as a wonder grain, that in the world market for grain stimulated by that subsidised myth of the benefits of bio fuel, has resulted in Quinoa being priced out of the reach of the poorer people of those Andean Countries.
Too bad so sad "let them eat cake", hang on what do those people make their freekin cake from again, oh yes it just might have been Quinoa, eh.
