Priorities, Priorities.... Feed the Hungry, Or Feed Eurocrats' Beemers?

Excellent post by Good Lt. on The Jawa Report: The new "green" emphasis on "biofuels" (requiring using huge amounts of grain to create enviro-friendly fuel, or some such) has made it lucrative for farmers to sell their grain to the fuel-makers, thereby contributing to a growing worldwide food shortage.

Of course, the Eurocrats have their priorities in order: They see no need to cut back on biofuels production -- the starving children of Africa be damned. (Hint: Enlightened, snotty, earth-friendly, green Eurocrats are immune to charges of "racism," which are reserved exclusively for conservatives and Republicans.
