When the Wall Street Journal advocates food stockpiling, I have to think that there is something to worry about.
One of the major reasons for this sudden change in food price dynamics? Yes, you guessed it, corn being redirected from food markets into the growing “bio-fuels” market. So whether you agree with global warming alarmists or not, whether you think that bio-fuels are economically or entropically viable or not, whether you think Al Gore is a saint or a huckster, Al Gore is about to reach into your wallet and start ripping money out of it.

I don’t want to alarm anybody, but maybe it’s time for Americans to start stockpiling food.
No, this is not a drill.
You’ve seen the TV footage of food riots in parts of the developing world. Yes, they’re a long way away from the U.S. But most foodstuffs operate in a global market. When the cost of wheat soars in Asia, it will do the same here.
Reality: Food prices are already rising here much faster than the returns you are likely to get from keeping your money in a bank or money-market fund. And there are very good reasons to believe prices on the shelves are about to start rising a lot faster.
Expect now to see a backlash against the ersatz Nobel Prize winner. It was all well and good for mentally deficient liberals and ignorant masses, but now that it’s hitting them hard in the pocket book, people are going to actually start listening to Global Warming “deniers” a bit harder and with a bit more interest in what the real proof of global warming is.
And that is happening after ten years of temperature declines, a record-setting winter, the largest extent of sea ice in Antarctica in recorded human history and a huge shift in actual climatologists from Global Warming advocates, to “mini-ice age” concerns.
It could well be that Al Gore will see more jeers than cheers in his global jet-fueled jaunts in the near future. And won’t that be sweet?
