Global Warming Food Shortage

More bad news from the folks over at the IPCC.

Warming temperatures could result in food shortages for 130 million people across Asia by 2050 and cause potentially catastrophic problems in Africa by wiping out one of the continent's staple crops altogether, according to a UN report released Tuesday.

I find that statement quit intriguing, as one of the wonderful solutions that the environuts have for saving the planet from global warming is using our food supply to feed our vehicles. Yes, rather than feeding the starving populations we shall use that food to make biofuel to feed our cars. Makes perfect sense now don't it.
