What Africa needs is industry, power and, most of all, something to eat. The necessities we take for granted are not easy to get in the developing world. Save the Children, an international charity, counts more than a dozen countries in Africa plagued by malnutrition. Nearly 30 percent of the world’s 842 million hungry live on the continent, and John Kerry wants to issue each of them a carbon credit.

This week’s summit of American and African heads of state in Washington would have been the perfect opportunity to discuss ways to invite prosperity to a region that badly needs it. Free-trade agreements and manufacturing deals would deliver the only known permanent cure for poverty: prosperity. Instead, the 50 African leaders were treated to a lecture from our secretary of state, who droned on about the mythical dangers of global warming. You could see heads nodding off all over the room.

Africa is nore than capable of producing enough food to feed itself. Trouble is the best food growing regions are more interested in killing each other than in commerce.
