Warming myth causing wheat and corn prices to skyrocket

Remember, the need for "biofuels" is bogus. Carbon is not heating up the Earth, but somehow ethanol has become a panacea for all this media-created hysteria. Of course, the "solution" comes at a price, for wheat is being circumvented for corn, which is used to produce ethanol. Both wheat and corn are food staples--especially for the poor of the world. Now both cost a lot more because of the stupid BS that is "man-made climate change."

So just remember, you bunch of liberal're making it harder for the poor to eat.

ABC: 'Blame' Inflation on the 'Price of Wheat':

“World News with Charles Gibson” explained on February 20 that biofuels are driving up food prices, which is driving up inflation. The Consumer Price Index (CPI), a key inflation reading, rose 0.4 percent in January according to the Labor Department, matching December’s rise.

“Blame it on the price of wheat,” said ABC correspondent Sharon Alfonsi. “Demand for alternative energy has farmers planting less wheat and more corn – the key ingredient of ethanol. Add the growing appetite for wheat from developing countries and the supply is strained.
