Food Crisis? What Food Crisis?

There are fears of a new global food crisis as a long period of drought in the United States is ravaging corn crops. The most devastating effects of a new food crisis will no doubt be most severely felt in developing nations. Click here for more cartoons about the food crisis.

Beyond the low corn yield, a long-time and worse fact is that the kind of corn grown in the USA could almost starve a person to death. It is mostly carbohydrates with very little protein. Break open a kernel and analyze it. It is genetically engineered types grown for fuel or for taste, not as in the old times for the best nutrition that a human could pretty much live on as the natives did for so long. Growers receive government subsidies for growing certain kinds of corn and crops, and since there is the government big push for alcohol from corn, much less of the really good nutritious kind is grown. Furthermore, it is patented so that the growers have to pay a license fee and also have to spray a chemical on it or it will not grow properly, and unless the chemical is sprayed, it will not reproduce from its kernels at all after a few years. This is not just spraying bug spray on corn, it is a great biological horror and if things get bad enough, not only the corn but all of these engineered grains and foods will come to an end. Then what. Then we are done.

In the end, the cost of growing, making, and delivering alcohol from the corn is much greater than it can be sold for because of its low energy content and poor fuel economy, so they force it on us by using it as an adulterant in gasoline.

Thanks! Maybe I should have made the fries more prominent, but if you look closely you'll they form the battlements of the castle. On your second point, you're probably right...
