    They are so cocooned within their silly ideology, they canít hear the laughter. So they become ever more ridiculous, never losing their self-important, know-it-all mien. Now they ask us to hurriedly sacrifice our wealth and freedom to Big Government lest global warming take away our popcorn:

    A new study, published Thursday in the journal Science, indicates that unless we act, and act fast, climate change could threaten everybodyís favorite meme-able snack: popcorn.

    The new research, which looks at the evolution of maize in the United States over thousands of years, indicates that the cornís adaptation to new climates was a slow process. And even with modern technology, it seems helping corn adapt to our rapidly changing world wonít be easy.

    Maize was first domesticated in the tropics of southern Mexico about 10,000 years ago.

    Thanks to the efforts of Michael Mann and other climate conmen to hide the decline, many people seem to believe the climate did not change for millennia until Al Gore invented global warming. Actually, the climate has fluctuated tremendously, producing for example the Roman and Medieval warming periods. However, it remains disputable whether it has fluctuated significantly recently, due to much of the data the authorities present us with being fake

    Not a problem, Monsanto can whip up a batch really fast. As a matter of fact safety stores of all seed has been made to insure the world food sources never become extinct for any reason. If it gets that hot you won't be eating any popcorn I can assure you.

    Corn cares a lot about how much water and sunlight it gets. Heat, not so much.

    No worries, SR has 7 big bags of popcorn stashed in the closet. There was a huge one day sale at Sam's. He had 8 but was a good guy and took a bag for the grand kids Sunday when we visited. He shares his wealth.

    It's corn season here in NJ and I don't care what anyone says, there's nothing like Silver Queen corn from NJ. However, it isn't global warming that is going to reduce corn. It's the gubmint that keeps scooping up corn for ethanol.
