Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan offers solution to global warming

Fox News: Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has a solution for global warming: Eat bugs. 
In an interview with The Guardian, Annan called the global livestock industry “a major threat to the climate” and suggested insects as an alternative protein source to meat“Eating insects is good for the environment and balanced diets,” he said.

Bet there's no insects on those plate...

Bet there’s no insects on those plates…


Annan told The Guardian that the growing population and middle class are making it more difficult to meet meat demands.  “It represents 14.5 percent of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations,” he said.
“[Insects] make up part of the diet of 2 billion people and are commonly eaten in many parts of the world,” Annan told The Guardian.

Nor on those plates.

Nor on those plates.

He added that in addition to helping the environment, keeping meat consumption to recommended levels would “reduce heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.”
Annan served as the secretary general from 1997 to 2006.
Annan will never have to eat bugs himself:  He was born into his country’s Ashanti and Fante aristocratic families; both of his grandfathers and his uncle were part of the Akan aristocracy. The elites never have to practice what they preach.

  1. Only after you, Kofi Annan, and EVERY other patronizing global elite who lectures to us about global warming, blah, blah, blah….

     
    • I’m eating a big juicy steak in honor of that global lunatic, Annan tonight. I have another suggestion on what he could eat but it’s not very nice on my part.😳 These people need to keep to their own business.

       
      • If Annan et al did their own business, they would ruin them. They are assigned to ruin ours.

         
      • MMMMMMM, prime cut, grass fed rib-eye yum yum….I’ll pass on the crickets and roaches.

         
        • Northerngirl

          Yes, I’m with you on that Mom, grass fed is the BEST!! Mr. Annan and his looney buddies may have my share of crickets, ants and whatever the hell else they’re pushing these days. 😝

           
          • Northergirl,
            Maybe everyone can treat the UN assembly to lunch and send them boxes of insects! or maybe God will beat us to it and send them all a plague of locusts! Bon Apetit!

              LOL! I like how you think. Yes, the locust plague would feed those nuts for a while. 🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜

               
  2. The guy’s an idiot. I am like you Dr. After you.
    What is wrong with growing gardens around the country where water isn’t so much a problem? And letting people collect rain water instead of fining them, or letting people put legal ponds on their land without fining them?
    Nothing is wrong.
    Those that keep preaching to us to change our lives are the biggest offenders.

     
  3. DCG, I love the captions under the pics! Made me laugh out loud!

     
  4. Here’s my solution , duct tape his , Barry’s , Al’s , and the slogan masters moth shut !

     
  5. Anyone have a recipe for mosquitoes?

    Maybe there’s a place in government for Andrew Zimmern, the host of the Travel Channel show, Bizarre Foods.

     
  7. Now we see why he was chosen to be UN Secretary General. Will there be a nutritional guide for those left alive, “Diet for a NWO Planet”. Was this well covered by MSM? Pardon this bad pun, I have overdosed on those essential elements, fluoride, lithium, strontiem, cesium…, at least he didn’t say, “Let them eat snake.”

     
  8. Let them eat bugs.

     
  9. Kevin J Lankford

    He is kinda circumventing the fact that “global warming” is based on skewed and falsified data.

     
  10. Who decides what the recommended levels of meat are? Michelle, some progressive vegan, or a “nutritionist” from some bug eating country, or a committee of all three?

     
  11. Anne M. Berg

    According to United Nations almost one third of the world’s population consume insects as part of their daily “nutrition”.

    Let’s not forget the new protein bars made with 20% cricket flour. The promise is that if you eat crickets you will jump higher.

    • Does LeBron James attribute his skills to a cricket diet? I enjoy dining on two specific varieties of insects, lobsters and crabs. How can insects replace cows? Is it possible to milk a cricket? What kind of cheese would be produced? Ask Kofi, he would know.
