Years ago, Lester Brown (author of “Plan B”) and other enviro-stars warned that if we didn’t go renewable (solar, wind) not only would we attain Peak Oil production (meaning diminishing returns from here on out) but the biofuels craze (not to be confused with veggie biodiesel, which is aok by us) would cause corn and wheat prices to go through the roof.
Today’s headline: “Corn jumps to $6 a bushel.”
The good news—if we took our subsidies from oil and put ‘em toward wind and solar, we could go sustainable as a nation faster than you can say “we’ve done it before—as with our war effort in WWII.”
