This is exactly what the loon Left has in store for you if they are allowed to get their way, with their Global Warming crap. Really, be prepared for a whole new diet. We in the West will no longer have anything to fear about traveling to China or to India or other places on the globe where insects are a delicacy, and still go hungry at the table. KGS
NewScience: There is a rational, even persuasive, argument for voluntarily eating insects: Bugs are high in protein, require less space to grow and offer a more environmentally friendly alternative to the vertebrates we Westerners prefer, advocates of the bug fare say.
However, this topic is not a hotbed of research, so while some data exist — in particular on the protein content of insects — there are some assumptions built into the latter part of this argument.
“The suggestion that insects would be more efficient has been around for quite some time,” said Dennis Oonincx, an entomologist at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. He and other researchers decided to test it, by comparing the greenhouse gas emissions from five species of insects with those of cattle and pigs.
