Gutfeld to Kofi Annan: Eat Bugs to Stop Climate Change? You First
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan saying in an interview that livestock is a major threat to the climate and that, "Eating insects is good for the environment and balanced diets."
"Now, something tells me the restaurants he frequents aren't serving grasshopper," Gutfeld remarked. "I don't see the Four Seasons serving poached beetle. I doubt Le Cirque has cockroaches on the menu, unless they fell from the ceiling. I don't think the Ritz Carlton will be folding earwigs into their egg whites."
Gutfeld said that he has a suggestion for people who say you should give up fossil fuels, eat bugs instead of burgers or trade your SUV for a unicycle: "You first."
"Climate change sanctimony creates that unique, sermonizing hypocrite who wants you to live like a caveman, while they live like kings," Gutfeld asserted. "So, unless you're snacking on silverfish, Kofi, stuff it."
He added that human ingenuity, industry and creativity always prove such panic pushers wrong.
"So, Kofi, as much as we'd love to see you pick aphids out of your teeth, play cricket. You don't eat them."
