stupid profundity

New Gov't chief scientific advisor Professor John Beddington calls our current rainforest to biofuel reduction programme "profoundly stupid!", whilst observing that the pressing hunger of billions might require some of our collective attention. Meanwhile Hillary Benn (how far the apple falls from the tree) notes the 'Tremendous good news" of alleviated cash poverty worldwide - although money is actually worthless if it can't buy basic foodstuffs. To everyone's dumb-struck surprise it seems that THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH TO GO AROUND! Who'd have thought it? Never mind. A few global catastrophes and we'll be back under carrying capacity in no time.
