    Eat Bugs, Not Meat, Say 'Global Warming Researchers'
    Foxnews.com ^ | January 16, 2011 | Ethan A. Huff


    Researchers from Wageningen University in the Netherlands say that insects produce far less greenhouse gases than cattle and pigs do, and would thus be a viable alternative to eating meat. Published in the journal PLoS ONE, the study found that pigs, for instance, produce up to one hundred times more greenhouse gases than the equivalent weight of mealworms.

    Do a million ants farting in the woods at the same time make a sound if no one is around?

    I have always found that claim specious. 200 years ago there were vast herds of bison, wildebeast, and other ruminants, and the CH4 level was 700 ppb. The extra 1100 ppb that we see now did not come from raising livestock.

    Really? Why don't you tell that personally to the ranchers in Queensland, Victoria, to those in Argentina and Uraguay?

    Moron ALERT. Guess what you brain dead fucking hack? Similar events have happened in the past and will happen again in the future. Explain why the heat wave in the 30's got "adjusted" to avoid the inconvenient fact that it was hotter then?

    Who knows, maybe bugs are tasty?

    You ever have a look at a lobster or a shrimp? They're like big bugs that live in the water.
