Climate Change Activists Say It's Time to Give Up Meat for Insects
How would you like some mealworms and crickets instead of a burger at your Memorial Day barbecue?
Climate change activists say humans should start eating insects as a way to eventually cut the world's meat consumption by 50 percent.
Doing that, activists argue, would greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by livestock.
The report on Phys.org stated:
Replacing half of the meat eaten worldwide with crickets and mealworms would cut farmland use by a third, substantially reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, researchers say.
While consumers' reluctance to eat insects may limit their consumption, even a small increase would bring benefits, the team says. This could potentially be achieved by using insects as ingredients in some pre-packaged foods.
Tucker Carlson weighed in on his show, calling on prominent climate change activists to go first.
"If I'm gonna give up grilled meat for worms, I'll need Leonardo DiCaprio to show the way. When Al Gore starts serving crickets for lunch on his private jet, I'm in," he said.
