Could We Halt Climate Change by Switching to a Bug-Based Diet?

There's rarely a day without improvement that doesn't hit the headlines. It's a growing area of concern for many of us, for good cause. United Nations Secretary said we're "missing" and we need to be more serious about climate change. Many sources indicate that we are quickly reaching the point of no return. The reality is overwhelming and seems to be completely out of control. We have to rely on lawmakers to save time in order to make the right decisions. But what if there was one way we could make a big difference?

What we eat can be an emotional problem for many. But the fact is, the environment and global warming are very different from our food. In this regard, 70% of the world's agricultural land (directly or indirectly) is spent on meat production. In order to meet the growing world population of 9 million people, demand for meat is expected to increase by 76 percent by 2050.

In comparison, 90% of soybeans and 50% of the world's grain are used for feeding animals. 14.5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions compensate for global livestock emissions. These emissions are greater than all combined transport emissions. Animal agriculture is not humane. It's not permanent.

For a long time, edible insects have been part of the human diet because they are nutritious and readily available. Usually species-dependent insects contain high levels of animal protein, fats, lipids, vitamins and minerals, ranging from 13% to 81%.
