It's the GreeniesJust in time for Earth Day 2008, in a very short period of time, the Greens have returned the world to the brink of starvation for millions, from which it had been rescued (not very effectively) in the 1970s through better agricultural methods and massive government aid from Europe and North America.
- It wasn't over population.
It wasn't drought.
It wasn't lack of infrastructure.
It wasn't civil war.
It wasn't terrorism.
It wasn't landfills overflowing with garbage.
It wasn't bankers conspiring to steal land.
It wasn't melting glaciers flooding the cities, with polar bears washing up on the beach.
It wasn't loss of the rainforest or lack of fairly traded coffee and tea.
It wasn't native crops disappearing under pressure from hybrids and pesticides.
It wasn't species disappearing from overuse by humans.
- By denying to the world new sources of coal, gas and oil;
by refusing permits for new refineries;
by caring more about snails and rats than people.
by hyping a problem (warming temperatures) and
saying people could control it through laws and regulations;
by giving tax breaks to companies who produce biofuels;
by encouraging farmers to convert acreage that used to grow wheat and soybeans to corn and other crops to burn as fuel;
by driving out entreprenuers and venture capital through punitive taxes and regulation.
Thank you, environmentalist greenies. You are sure saving the world.
