Global What??

A couple of articles have caught my eye in the last couple days...

This one is about the use of corn to produce ethanol for vehicular transportation...

Did you know that it takes 232 kg of corn to fill a 50 litre car tank with ethanol? Did you know that that same corn could feed a child for a year?

We drive, they starve.

And this one, about the fact that global temperatures decreased significantly over the last 12 months. The reason? Decreased solar radiation.
