CSIRO trying to convince Australians to eat insects instead of meat - it's apparently good for the climate
How does 'Go to buggery' sound?
Here's how eating insects is better for the environment.
Compared to conventionally farmed animals like beef, pork and chicken, insects produce fewer greenhouse gases. It's because they don't poop nearly as much. They also don’t usually ferment food in their guts which produces methane as a result.
They also produce minimal waste as 80 to 100 per cent of the animal is eaten. Even the waste from the insects - called frass - can be turned into nutrient-rich fertilisers great for the garden.
