Posted:US ads praise carbon dioxide By Deborah Zabarenko in Washington 18may06



A LITTLE girl blows away dandelion fluff as an announcer says, "Carbon dioxide: they call it pollution; we call it life", in an advertisement targeting global warming "alarmists", especially Al Gore.

Posted:Bump.





I was searching for a suitable thread to bump on global warming when I found this one. I dont even remember starting it, but it will do.



Ive always been amazed that in a freethinking community like HoP so many people seemed to be in denial about global warming, basically ignoring the obvious.



So, to the skeptics out there, what do you make of the following story?



US shops ration food for first time



The drastic move is the first time that food rationing has been introduced in the US.



US RETAIL giant Wal-Mart is rationing rice sales to protect dwindling supplies as the global price skyrockets and producers such as Australia struggle to keep up with demand.



Tim Johnson, of the California Rice Commission, said: This is unprecedented. Americans particularly in states such as California have on occasion walked into a supermarket after a natural disaster and seen that the shelves are less full than usual, but we have never experienced this.



Food prices across the world have rocketed in the past two years, driven by increased demand for corn the grain that is fermented to produce ethanol, the biofuel. With corn a main foodstock in dairy farming, milk has doubled in price in two years.





Ok, global warming is not mentioned in this article, but I's suggest people would have to be living in a fools paradise if they werent prepared to accept global warming (droughts in Australia, Vietnam etc.) as the driving force behind global food shortages.
