Default Lay Biofuel Death Toll at Gore's Door

Lay Biofuel Death Toll at Gore's Door
by Marcia Merry Baker

April 12, 2008 (LPAC)--Among all the ways that Al Gore has advocated and worked to kill people, his biofuels crap is the worst.

Just at the time when low world grain production and stocks, relative to needs, began hitting new danger levels in the mid-2000s, Gore stepped up to lead the "alternative fuels'' insanity of the large-scale diversion of corn, cane, and oil crops to biofuels. Gore was the neo-green public figure, working in alliance with the neocon, so-called right-wing side of the promotion machine for biofuels. Gore grandstanded during the 2004-06 period, as nations were coerced to pass laws ordering that a big percentage of ethanol and biodiesel must be included in gasoline and diesel fuel, by certain deadlines. What ensured, besides a financial mini-bubble, was a massive shift in area planted to biofuels crops--corn in North America, cane in Brazil, oil crops in Asia, wheat, and rapeseed in Europe, and crops in Africa too. The conditions for genocide by starvation were created.

The Gorey/leftie line for doing this involves the familiar, multiple lies: the Earth is overheating from carbon dioxide; biofuels will emit less CO2; energy from biomass exceeds the energy put in to produce it. The Big Lie is that the Earth is overpopulated anyway, and reducing numbers is good. For example, Gore's 1992 book, reissued in 2006, Earth in the Balance; Ecology and the Human Spirit, gives his standard argument: ''[The countries of Africa] are already putting great strains on their natural resources and threatening the integrity of their ecological systems, so it is truly frightening to imagine the impact of doubling or tripling their numbers....''

The right-wing version, promoted by networks including George Shultz, one of the longtime "economic hitmen'' of the Republican stripe, and James Woolsey, former CIA Director, is the lie that biofuels will provide energy independence and security.

-Death Toll from Biofuels Swindle-

At present rates, in 2008, at least 95 million metric tons of corn will be utilized worldwide for ethanol, which is 12% of the expected total world corn harvest this coming year. On top of that, 10 million tons of wheat and other grains are going into biofuels globally. This doesn't count the agriculture capacity going into cane ethanol in Brazil, or Asian and European oilseeds for biodiesel.

LaRouche spelled out the consequences in a March 7, 2007 webcast, "Implications of the Gore Hoax for International Policy.'' He said, "There's no possible way that this biofuels swindle could work. Because what the system requires--it consumes, actually, in raw caloric terms, the production of this fuel produces less fuel in terms of power, than it consumes. In other words, there's no net gain from so-called biofuels. It's also an idiotic thing to do, because what biofuels means is reducing food! It means going into corn production for fuels, at a loss: that is, you get less power out of the fuel than you put into making it! This would mean destruction of the landscape, destruction of the entire economy, mass starvation around the world. It would destroy whole areas of food producing. Idiocy!''

Starving people is not satisfying enough for the appetites of Al Gordo. He is also directly cashing in on the biofuels craze. His London-based financial Blood and Gore outfit is directly involved in making money off the U.S. ethanol binge, calling it "green smart'' investment. His company, Generation Investment Management, whose co-officer is David Blood, formerly of Goldman Sachs, is significantly invested in the Danish firm whose subsidiary supplies 40% of all the enzymes used in the U.S. ethanol distilling process. The firm is Novo Nordisk, whose sub-group, Novozymes, is the world's leading supplier of enzymes used in processing corn into ethanol.

Novo Nordisk is one of 14 huge corporations (with Hewlett Packard, Sony, etc.) steered by the World Wildlife Fund as "Climate Savers.'

Interesting read..with good facts...though it does tend to get slightly emotional.

I think we will all hear more about the growing hunger "Tsunami" (as they call it) in the next few weeks...and how enviromental alarmist are directly involved by pushing legislative action that reguires a certain amount of crop be set aside to "save the planet"

Two interesting facts that i heard on the news last night is that 1) If we were to use every grain of corn in the world...we would only meet 17% of the U.S. fuel needs....and 2) If a person were to fill up their vehicle with pure ethonal...it takes as much corn as would feed a person for one year.

I have to admit to being very naive about the whole biofuel/world hunger connection...but like I said...we should all hear more about it in the next several weeks.

Looks as if "certain" alarmists are reaping the benefits of scaring the world into biofuel production after investing heavily in the same corporations.

But are biofuels related to a "British" plot to kill Hillary, as is argued by LaRouche in another "emotional" article on the site?

It's a British operation, aimed at destroying the United States as a Constitutional form of government, run by the Anglo-Dutch liberal financial faction, very much the same kind of people who put Hitler into power, and Mussolini into power earlier in Europe. It's the same crowd; they're at it again, and the U.S. is the target. And there are many Americans who are complicit in this criminal activity, including some very well known ones."

"The same kind of thing was done against Roosevelt. And the problem are the London forces and traitorous pigs in the United States who see Hillary as a potential replication of FDR, and therefore they want to kill her.

This does have some interesting overtones, though. When DDT was banned, the substitutes were not as effective, and a lot more people died from starvation than from the pesticide we were all supposedly being saved from.

These are complex problems, and cannot be solved with simple black/white or yes/no answers.

It's amazing how little you hear about this.

i dont have a link but heard this about 7 years ago-

it takes 10 pounds of grain, to produce 1 pound of beef.

cows farts deplete the ozone.

an american meal in the late 1800's consisted of 1 part beef vs. 3-4 parts grains/veggies. nowadays that is about reversed. the reciprocol rate of obesity and heart disease support this.

just food for thought. literally.

Blame the biofuel mess on the primary system. Iowa has been getting ethanol subsidies since long before anyone heard of Al Gore. Any member of Congress who does the right thing and opposes those subsidies can forget winning the Iowa caucuses, thus putting them at a major disadvantage when they inevitably run for POTUS.

It wasn't a problem, until everything else became and issue and all this stuff got pushed.

What they should ban in Congress is all the Special Interest Lobbies. But then where would they get all their money?
