Earth Daze

While everyone's attention is on the Pennsylvania primary today, let's not forget that we're also supposed to be celebrating Earth Day.

The editors of Investor's Business Daily haven't forgotten.

The newspaper reviews some of the inconsistencies of the global warming alarmists, led by Al Gore himself.
A week after Tax Day, April 15, we are forced to endure another indignity, Earth Day, April 22. This Earth Day finds the world threatened not by rising sea levels, but by rising food prices. Many on the planet are more likely to starve than drown, and we have only Gore's disciples to blame.
Not one person has lost his life because of global warming, but if Al Gore and his kind are allowed to continue with their hysteria, millions of people will starve to death.

IBD writes:
The Gore-induced rush to biofuels has diverted crops such as corn, soybeans and palm oil from food to fuel. Vast swaths of rain forest in places like Malaysia and Indonesia have been cleared to provide farmland not to feed the hungry but to fuel our cars. Our own grain belt has been increasingly diverted to ethanol over corn flakes.
It doesn't take a Nobel Prize winner to figure out the the consequences of the climate change movement will be the death of innocent people all over the world. How's that for saving those polar ice caps?
