Perhaps there is a new reason to add adult beverages to your diet. The latest scientific research indicates that farm grown ethanol used to reduce the cost of gasoline is not good for the environment. See the Washington Examiner article.

All critical thinkers point to a simple fact: we are using too much and there are too many people on the planet to permit them to do the same as modern nations. We simply do not have the natural resources. If you have not watched the free on Amazon Prime documentary, Planet of the Humans, I encourage you to do that. It dares to say what no one will—that we are losing the battle to stop climate change by following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road—selling out the green movement to bankers and billionaires. This urgent, must-see movie is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way-before it’s too late. We have had several Watch Parties with friends to share the conclusions reached by this researcher who starts out an environmental zealot but flips to the other extreme looking at the conclusions he finds in the facts.
Another well done documentary is Cowspiracy. Both point to the same conclusions that it’s not carbon nor forest fires nor changing temperatures that are the problem. It’s too many people living places they should not be living.
More reason to eat, drink, and be merry!
