Obama Wants More Biofuels As Newest AGW Scare Refutes Him

Dear Leader, who has recieved quite a bit of campaign cash from the ethanol lobby, is calling for even more

The Obama administration gave a boost to the corn and coal industries Wednesday, announcing a series of moves to accelerate biofuel use and deploy so-called clean-coal technology on power plants.

Unsurprisingly, the EPA recently finalized a rule that would give corn ethanol a larger share of the biofuels market. Even though it has been shown that corn ethanol provides minimal power, uses a lot of water to produce, actually does little to decrease CO2 output, and, oh, drives up the cost of food.

And it doesn’t help when the alarmists are saying topsoil “could” vanish in 60 years

Fertile soil is being lost faster than it can be replenished and will eventually lead to the “topsoil bank” becoming empty, an Australian conference heard.

Chronic soil mismanagement and over farming causing erosion, climate change and increasing populations were to blame for the dramatic global decline in suitable farming soil, scientists said.

I’ll have to agree that “climate change” is partly to blame. Why? Because the alarmists are creating an environment where food is being turned into barely functional fuel in ever increasing quantities, burning through soil. In reality, it seems that climate change was thrown in there simply as a scare phrase.

The conference heard world soil, including European and British soils, could vanish within about 60 years if drastic action was not taken.

Stop using it to make barely functional fuels, then. OK? This will also play into the more extreme alarmists notions on reducing Earth’s human population, which would mean less need for grown food.

Soil is also a valuable store of carbon and can release the greenhouse gas if it is ploughed or dug up.

How soon till the alarmists call for all food to be grown in vats?

Of course, as said many many times, climate alarmism is very much driven by money. And, surprise! Climate alarmism came in dead last in the latest Pew survey.
