Population Reduction Through Ethanol

May 17th, 2007

“More than 3 billion people in the world are being condemned to a premature death from hunger and thirst,” Fidel Castro

It is nearly axiomatic that anything Cuban “President” Fidel Castro says will be false, incorrect, misleading, and downright pernicious… recently, el Presidente‘s grumblings have been worth hearing, not because they are precisely right, but because they are at least on the right track…

interference by politicians in the market for fuel (added to the massive existing interference) has real-world impact, and Fidel Castro, of all people, understands…

The article is called Ethanol Versus the Poor, and it’s worth reading.

Food for thought, from the Green Party of Canada website (emphasis mine: put them together to form one sentence):

We believe that to achieve sustainability, and in order to provide for the needs of present and future generations within the finite resources of the earth, continuing growth in global consumption, population and material inequity must be halted and reversed.

Economic Fundamentalism, Global Warming, Going... Going... Gone Nuts For The Environment, pimply minions of bureaucracy

    I thought we had a negative birth rate forcing us to import 1% of our population each year? Or at least that’s what the 2006 census told us.

    Canada, sure, even North America. But this is a global issue, and it is the worlds poor who will suffer the most if the price of staple foods increases. If your near starvation, then it could push you over the edge.

    The Green Party sees the problem as people exhaling CO2, not Canadians.
