The Revelation Came Sooner Than I Thought

Unfortunately I don;t mean voters realize McCain is a Liberal, no, I mean the revelation of environmentalists realizing that biofuels are hurting us.
Environmental groups are backing away from federal biofuel and ethanol mandates. While renewable fuel sources may reduce greenhouse gas emissions they also could raise food costs and cause shortages, critics say.

"We are witnessing the beginning of one of the great tragedies of history," Lester Brown, president of the Earth Policy Institute, said in a statement. "The United States, in a misguided effort to reduce its oil insecurity by converting grain into fuel for cars, is generating global food insecurity on a scale never seen before."

"As a result, prices of food products made directly from these commodities such as bread, pasta, and tortillas, and those made indirectly, such as pork, poultry, beef, milk, and eggs, are everywhere on the rise," he added.

"In Mexico, corn meal prices are up 60 percent. In Pakistan, flour prices have doubled. China is facing rampant food price inflation, some of the worst in decades," Brown said.

And all because these same enviro-weenies convinced the liberal minded and stupid that we would burn up from Global Warming if we didn't use these resource wasting biofuels. And look what it has gotten us, higher food prices, shortages and no impact on the climate.

At least they admit their mistake and aren't continuing down the same path to starvation.
