Insect aside

Never imagine that the global-warming hysteria has gotten as silly as it can:

If the thought of eating bugs and roadkill freaks you out, consider this: competition for the world's dwindling resources is heating up right along with the planet, and global warming is worsening food shortages all over the world. In this land o' plenty o' processed foods, most Americans can't imagine an era when we'd be forced to subsist on weeds, bugs, and -- till we run out of gas -- roadkill.

The funny thing is, though, that would constitute a healthier diet than the one most of us eat now.

The first sentence of the post begins, "We Americans have a bias against eating bugs . . ." A bias? Yes, I suppose it could be called that.
