Hey, lookie here! According to a new report from the Energy Department, the global demand for energy will rise dramatically over the next 20 years. Despite all the hoopla about biofuels and alternative energy the report says: “Fossil fuels are expected to continue to supply much of the energy used worldwide.”
Of course, my friends! I’ve been saying this for years. But for the gullible — who actually believe we can “conserve” our way out of high energy prices — I’ve got a related item here about food.
The head of the UN’s food agency has issued a warning that food prices will remain high. He says the problems associated with high food costs won’t be solved without increasing food production. So he is advocating that world leaders press to increase production.
But now wait a minute! Why not apply the same remedy that the Messiah — Barack Obama — suggests for oil prices? Let’s tax the food producers. They’re making profit from selling food. Let’s blame greedy food speculators for driving up the price of food.
Then let’s tell all the hungry parents around the world they should develop “alternative foods” and “renewable foods” like cows do, to feed their hungry kids. Chew your cud! And of course they should “conserve” the food they have. Eat a little less each day so we don’t damage our pristine natural resources.
Someday, those children will be grateful.
Those that haven’t starved to death.
It’s a beautiful thing.
