Climate Change Cannot Cause Starvation

Climate Change Lies

Anyone who says Climate Change will result in mass starvation is lying.

We will never run out of things that humans can eat. We may run out of food that some humans want to eat but we will never run out of edible food.

According to the Smithsonian Institute there are 10 quintillion insects now alive on earth.

Over 2 billion people now living eat insects as some portion of their diets. This means that over a quarter of the people on the earth are eating bugs even as we speak..

The United Nations has already been urging more people to eat insects.

One day, if there is nothing on your grocery store shelves but insects and food made from insects you will eat it and like it.

Besides, you eat insects every day. The federal government already has a standard about how many insect parts can be in your food. For those who conveniently refused to translate that into uncomfortable reality: This means that every bite of food you eat contains some insect parts or feces.

Make the Pig Eat It

For any of you who can either handle a little bit of bug but don’t want more as well as those of you who just can’t handle bugs at all, there may be some interesting alternatives in the offing. For instance, suppose we saved all the edible veggies for humans and fed our garbage to the bugs and then fed bugs to our animals? Fish and pigs for instance can eat insects and insect larvae. The only vegetable matter we should ever feed livestock are fruits and vegetables that are inedible for us or which would require too much processing. Acorns come to mind for instance. Grass clipping from mown lawns and that irksome weed called kudzu definitely need to be animal fodder.

Eat A Bug!

Do you think Barack Hussein Obama would eat a bug to save the earth? You know he probably would. And so will Al Gore, Warren Buffet, and Bill Gates—probably. Would Donald Trump eat a bug to save mankind? Hard to say. Perhaps if he could get credit and publicity for it. And maybe if someone paid him $5 million to do it. Possibly there could be a reality TV special to entice him into it. Wealthy people already eat snails, fish eggs and coffee that comes out of the rear end of some hairy animal. How can they turn up their noses at insects?

Did you know that there is a real, gourmet cheese that has living insects in it? Google it and weep my friends.

We shall call rejoicing bringing in the bugs.

We can feed just about any bug we run across to the pigs as long as the bugs don’t harm them and don’t poison the meat.

But what bugs can we can eat? Well some of you already know. Supposedly John the Baptist wore a hair shirt and lived off locusts and wild honey. It’s not that hard to find people on the planet who eat grasshoppers.

They say worms are edible but eating live worms would probably be too squirmy for me. Maybe they could be baked into a cake?

The good news is some say there are actually species of grubs and worms that when cooked, taste like bacon. And so, the People’s Republic of Bacon shall not perish from the earth. In Bacon We Trust!!!

There are well over a 1,000 species of edible insects. Lists of them are available in the references.

Good news. You can eat scorpions!!!

They say that maggots are edible but you must be especially careful not to confuse maggots with lawyers and politicians which they closely resemble.

Bugs Are Hardier Than Humans

Any disaster that a human can live through will not phase insects and many rodents will live through it as well. Consider the worst man made disaster imaginable. Thermo nuclear war. Rats, mice and rabbits can take twice the radiation that man can. Fruit flies can take 100 times the hard radiation that we can. What this means is no matter what disaster you imagine, if humans managed to survive it, then some edible insects and rodents will certainly survive it. People who want to argue about whether or not they would eat rodents and bugs if they were hungry enough are at best unintelligent and cannot be taken seriously. History shows us that people will eat other people if they are hungry enough. I for one would prefer to eat bugs and rodents if my fellow humans were my only other option.

Billions of your fellow humans are eating insects and rodents every day of their own free will. Besides, the United Nations wants you to eat bugs!

      FlourishAnyway I don't actually think it's necessary for us all to eat bugs but I am convinced that we will get a series of political leaders in the US and around the world who are absolutely certain they know what is good for us and they will feed us texturized bug protein without telling us.

      The reason I think it is not really necessary is that we could feed bugs and garbage plants to other food animals like pigs and fish we would be perfectly fine that way.

      Have a blessed day!

      Alicia I just hope they work at texturizing the bugs and making them taste good!

      I actually ran into to someone who was not thinking clearly and said something like: What if Global Warming affects the bug population!

      If humans are alive the bugs will thrive. Under the most lethal man made conditions imaginable, insects will suffer far less than man kind. I was looking at a chart about it and by the time you hit 100% lethal nuclear radiation levels for people, insects haven't even noticed that there's any thing wrong.

      I think that we will definitely be eating insects in the not-too-distant future. Many of them are very nutritious. As you say, we may not want to eat insects, but they should be available for a long time!

      Interesting information you have and as always something more to think about from you.

      Devika I have resigned myself to the notion that one day I will wake up and hear on the news that my government has replaced all meet products with textured protein from insects because it was "good for me and good for the planet". More and more the politicians believe they should have carte blanche to do anything they deem "good for us" no matter what we might think about it.

      Interesting questions. I have given some thought to eating bugs, can't do it!
