Fidel Climbs On Bandwagon

When it comes to scare tactics, Al Gore now looks like a real amateur. You and I might think the use of ethanol as an alternative fuel is a good idea, right? Will it reduce our use of imported oil and will it reduce air pollution? And, will it not even reduce the atmospheric CO2 said to be the root cause of catastrophic global warming?

Well, if you answered "yes" to the above questions, maybe you need to pay close attention to yesterday's words from Fidel Castro as quoted exactly below:

More than 3 billion people are being condemned to premature death from hunger and thirst

Capitalism will not meet human needs.

It is not an exaggeration; this is rather a conservative figure. I have meditated for quite a long time on that after the meeting held by President Bush with the U.S. automakers.

The sinister idea of turning foodstuffs into fuel was definitely established as the economic strategy of the U.S. foreign policy on Monday, March 26th last...

Fidel goes on to inform the world that Cuba has all but eliminated their "carbon footprint" by switching from incandescent to florescent bulbs. Ozark common sense seems to have eluded the Cuban dictator as it has certain of our own former almost presidents.

But there are some serious questions regarding the rush toward ethanol, and I, as did Fidel, plan to meditate on it before further comment here.
