Obviously, The Egyptian Riots Are Caused By Globull Warming

No one has really said it yet, but, you know it is coming, namely, that the Egyptian riots have their foundation in climate change. Stick with me for a moment

The latest unrest in Egypt is blamed in part on rising wheat prices, which have squeezed poor Egyptian households. Forty per cent of Egypt’s population survives on less than $2 a day.

Although once considered the breadbasket of the Roman Empire, today Egypt is the world’s biggest wheat importer. It uses a combination of surpluses as well as subsidies to keep prices under control for its 80 million strong population, many of whom survive on a diet dominated by the flat, round bread known as baladi.

Rising wheat prices, eh?

A recent report on climate change sees crop prices rising over the next 40 years as the globe heats up, according to an article published in the January issue of Food Nutrition & Science. Using computer modeling, researchers at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) assessed the harmful impact of climate change on food security through 2050.

According to the report, climate change will cause lower rice yields all over the world in 2050. Overall, the report finds that between now and 2050, food prices could rise by 42 to 131% for maize, 17 to 67% for wheat, and 11 to 78% for rice, depending on the scenario.

We’ve already been told that a spike in global food prices contributed to the Tunisian riots, and the Algerian riots, and we know that the world is one poor harvest away from chaos. This is all caused by the “extreme weather” due to globull warming, so, we can blame what is going in the Arab world on ……. climate change! Because someone drove a Suburban to soccer practice. See? It’s so easy!

    Wait a minute. By 2050 maize prices will be 42 to 131% higher. Now stop and think. Our bas inflation is 3 to 4% per year. That is the figure that the investment people tell you to beat in order to keep your money from going out the window. So to extrapolate this to 2050, that means that inflation will be about on course. This is the problem with the climate change nuts. They take an ordinary situation and turn it into a crisis by crafting their sentences in just the right manner.

    There is also the fact that food prices are rising because of farmlands being used / stolen / converted for bio fuels.

    Less land is being used for food around the world and therefore prices are going up.

    Less developed nations are cutting down old growth forests to plant crops to keep feeding their citizens and make bio fuel.

    How stupid is that?
