Global Warming Denial
UN, World Bank to tackle food crisis
UN agencies and the World Bank have pledged to set up a task force to tackle an unprecedented rise in global food prices that is threatening to spread social unrest. The international bodies called on countries not to restrict exports of food to secure supplies at home, warning that could make the problem worse. "We consider that the dramatic escalation in food prices worldwide has evolved into an unprecedented challenge of global proportions," the United Nations said in a statement.
This had become a crisis for the world's most vulnerable people, including the urban poor, it said after a meeting of 27 international agency heads in the Swiss capital, Berne, to chart a solution to food price rises that have caused hunger, riots and hoarding in poor countries.
Don’t you get the feeling that we are in absolute denial about Global Warming? The sudden plight of food collapse was predicted early on in the global warming movement – erratic weather patterns which are only going to get more extreme are interrupting the global agricultural calendar seeing the global crop yields drop dramatically add to this the extra pressure of land now being connected to the energy addiction the West have ensconced themselves in via bio-fuels and filling up the SUV will easily outstrip concerns by motorists for the hungry masses from the third world. As ‘urgent’ as the UN moves on this issue, any quick fix food drops will do nothing to stop the process global warming has put in place as the erratic weather patterns will only increase in severity – and if you think it’s bad now, what will happen in 2013 when the entire Arctic polar icecap melts.
