Professional, Polite, Prepared to Kill

Biofuels, Energy, Ethanol, and Hunger

By: Jonathan D. Strong

Since the release of Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth, scientists, the United Nations, governments, lobbyists, and activists have been telling us that the Earth/climate is in “crisis,” that we “must act now to save the planet,” and that we are on the verge of “catastrophe.” Never mind that inconvenient fact that the Earth has cooled over the past few years, governments in the United States, Canada, and Europe have now set targets to mandate a certain level of ethanol or other biofuels to replace traditional fuels. This has been a result of powerful lobbying groups like Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, and other environmental groups who have pushed hard for reducing our dependence on brown energy.

While I am no fan of Al Gore, I do agree that we should do a better job of taking care of the planet. I believe this, not out of a worship or reverence for the Earth, but because I believe that God gave humanity, created in His image, an obligation to care for the planet and creatures He created. But I also believe in fairness and equality, and thus, I adamantly oppose the Kyoto Protocol for its obvious unfairness and punishment of economically prosperous nations for the benefit of developing nations.
