Krugman blames global warming for "popular rage" from lack of food. Sadly, this is really shallow. We’ve had food crises for ages, and we only had a relatively nice period in the last 10 or so years. That we’re warming is a fact, but it’s not that humans are influencing it, regardless of the so-called consensus. Rage against food prices is usually the straw that breaks a camel’s back – people are usually pissed off about other things, like corruption (and Egypt *is* a prime example).Blaming a "vast leftist conspiracy" is just a strawman.
