Climate Change Policies = Starvation

A few weeks ago, Lord Christopher Monckton told me a distressing story about a visit to Haiti. He said that poverty in that troubled nation is so pervasive that many of its inhabitants have been reduced to eating mud pies. The term “mud pies” is not slang for a local staple made from locally-grown cereal crops. We’re talking about people reduced to eating actual dirt. Monckton watched Haitians form mud into the shape of pies, mixing in a sprinkling of whatever nutritional foodstuffs might be available (like oil and salt) and then “cooking” the mud pies in the sun.

The article goes on to explain how climate change policies have made their plight of these people worse.

Given what various extremists have said about “the need for” population decrease there’s a part of me that thinks that this is not an “unintended consequence.”

Of course, given that these same people know nothing about economics, markets, or reality, maybe it really is unintended.

Here’s the story: Unintended Consequences: Battling ‘Climate Change’ Creates Famine
