Is it just me, or is it warm in here?
• South Dakota was slammed with 48 inches of global warming and 60 mile-an-hour winds.
• The diversion of food to biofuel production has resulted in soaring food prices throughout the world. Among the hardest hit: Haitians have been forced to eat mud patties, which consist of dirt, oil and sugar.
• Perhaps this explains why one UN official called the biofuel frenzy a "crime against humanity." The biofuel boondoggle -- a humanitarian disaster -- needs to be rectified, and fast.
Let's hope Al Gore wins another Nobel Prize for this lunacy. It'll keep him from tinkering with more stuff that can go horribly, fatally wrong.
Update: Tom Nelson has an excellent digest of climate-change folderol.
Update II: Noel Sheppard links Rex Murphy's blistering commentary on biofuels (hat tip: Larwyn).
