Thanks for this post on climate change and energy capabilities in Africa. I wish more attention was paid to this topic among African Americans. It is clear to me, at least, that Africa's energy production is of increasing interest to U.S. policymakers, and Blacks in America need to jump into the fray and join this discussion. We cover energy issues of interest to African Americans at blackEnergy, but we need to do a better job of covering energy and environmental issues on the continent. Thanks again for covering this important conference.

The fact that Meles is an excepational and exemplary leader in the whole of Africa is indisputable. He has proven this fact by leading Ethiopia (which used to be economically-the poorest and politically-the most unstable country in the horn)forward. That is why Meles is invited everywhere (except Tripoli) to deliver his sharpest messages being the pride of not only Ethiopia but also Africa.

"Number one basket case" is actually not an appropriate description for Ethiopia and is overused in describing African nations. I would have more of a complaint about the size of Ethiopia's defense budget than its agricultural budget. Clinton echoed Meles' call today but made an important point that sugar ethanol is preferable to corn or wheat, because ethanol developed from those products drives up food prices on items like pasta and cornmeal.

Errr... with that said and done, Is Ethiopia not still the No. one basket case in the whole continent of Africa. Are we to believe that it can produce biofuel while it can not feed its own people.

I guess it makes for good speech and some claping ;( I wish it was true.

Tell them to do what their rival to the north (Eritrea)are doing. Start by kicking out all the NGO and the people that make a rich nations a busket case, then I will start to believe the speech.
