Hank de Carbonel, who is in the cement pumping business during the day, keeps us up to date on the Monarch Butterfly crisis.
They did this because they have developed a real liking for cornflakes? Nope, they did it so hey can sell us back their claimed GM corn seed which will be dubious as are most of “their” products, but the price will be whatever it takes to cement the deal. The results will arrive later.
We of course want cheap corn seed because we are planting more corn than ever because we have decided to make a lousy fuel from it. I just read that ethanol is more polluting than carbon fuel as well. So we plant more corn and divert it from food to fuel driving up the price of not just corn but beef and all livestock. That means less for the elderly and poor both here and overseas.
Because we plant corn in marginal fields and land where the milkweed would populate, the available nesting plant is diminished and my pals, the Monarch butterflies are reduced in number.
Scientism triumphs once again. Central planning must move on. Facts are troublesome things.

Nobody asked but that’s what I think.
