The NYT reports today that spikes in food prices have been caused by…global warming. It did not rain enough in Russia (Global Warming). It was hot in Brazil (Global Warming). In the U.S, Congress created the ethanol program, diverting 40% of the nation’s corn crop to motor fuel. (Global Warming caused dangerous sunrays to penetrate the brains of stupid politicians).
And in Connecticut. As most Governors resist tax increases and insist on spending cuts, CT Gov Malloy tried something different. He pushed through a massive tax increase, hoping that public employee unions would then come to the table and “share” in the “sacrifice.” Unions are now saying no deal. Something tells me this story is not going to end well.
