I wonder if this is a bleated, coordinated attempt to save the GND? Beause everyone laughed at the "no cow farts" part, because everyone said "You can't make a cow stop farting, what are you gonna do? Fine it?"
Several researchers are trying to reduce the green house gas output of cows
Government isnt giving them sufficent research grants
the green new deal is giving them 0 in research grants and taxes on cows

So rich people of course will still have their steaks. The bugs aren't for them. Sounds more like the Green Raw Deal.

No no no

the VAST majority of green house gases submitted into the atmo by man are from cows, pigs, and other livestock.

they will be heavily taxed but the problems they cause wont be reduced so food prices are driven up globally so people HAVE to eat the bugs

Why is it progs can't just be contented with a nice, vegetarian/vegan meal of tahini oil drenched hummus, falafel, rice stuffed grape leaves and a big leafy salad?

It's always got to be this transgressive,future frankenfood bullshit that humiliates you and takes away your human dignity.
It’s easier to make someone go along with something they don’t want to do when they have no dignity. Today you’re feeding them bugs. Tomorrow you’re stuffing them into a tube house they’re paying a thousand bucks a month for.

And feel good that their taxes go to a poor african country

so a warlord can use it to supress his people
Or it goes as food "aid" that wipes out whatever local agri economy the place has by flooding the market with cheap staples, and turns low-level but recoverable famine into a complete disaster.

That's the most annoying thing about the greenies: their utter black-white insistence that their way is the only one forward for le climate, even when it's obvious they don't know they're fucking talking about:

>LOCAL FREE-RANGE MEAT BAD, CORN-FED BUGS AND IMPORTED VEGETABLES GOOD.
>ANYTHING WITH NUCLEAR IN THE NAME 'NUCLEAR' BAD, JUST BURN THE FUCKING TREES AND CALL IT 'BIOFUEL'
>let's combat overpopulation by encouraging sterilization in the eco-conscious West and then just braindrain the Third World to make up for it, nothing wrong with that plan
>We must all make sacrifices and adapt, but don't you dare touch my electronic gadgets, exotic tastes, hordes of pets and generally luxurious upper middle class urbanite lifestyle, bigot


It's a shame the term 'ecofascist' has already been taken, because it describes a lot of these people quite well.

I'm gonna start a kickstarter for an electric fart sniffer that collects the methane of cow farts as biogas.
People pay millions if I advertise it as a revolutionary new technology that will save the planet.

It's never about making the world better. They need to feel superior to you and to everyone else, taking away your dignity is how they do that.

And the best way to break someone's will is by making them comply with rules that make zero sense for any reason. If they can convince you that painting your house green is what nazis do and painting your house yellow is the right side of history, the fact that the color of paint used makes no difference is precisely what triggers their marks to take whatever they're told on faith because they become accustomed to the idea that they're never going to understand why they're supposed to follow this or that rule, that's for better people than themselves. Ours is not to wonder why, ours is but to go woke and die.

And the more humiliating it is, the better for control. So for instance, you shame everyone with green houses and force them to denounce themselves for it, and publicly paint the house while their neighbors watch.

Then you change the rule in six months and shame them for having yellow. It really doesn't matter, so long as it's humiliating.

Eating bugs is in the same vein of rubbing your nose in the shit you're willing to tolerate from them. You're eating bugs. You know you're eating bugs because all the news stories tell you to eat the bugs, you fucking Nazi.

Would you humiliate yourself like this if they were wrong? It must be right, otherwise you are a miserable coward and a cuck, and you're not that, right? You're on the right side of history. That's a much better story to tell yourself as you eat a bug sandwich in the ten minutes break you have while flagellating yourself and painting your house with orange polka dots.

Someday, I imagine there will be large walls around the cities, keeping in those who have blindly followed such horrible and demeaning rules for so long. Those who live outside the walls are treated as a myth, and being sent outside them is treated as the ultimate punishment for those who disobey. School is now openly a reprogramming center, and reproduction is done out of necessity, and for no other reason. The government takes the children upon birth, and they are raised to be the next generation of rule followers. Those who make the rules live in the highest floors of the skyscrapers and are practically worshipped as gods. To even marginally question there smallest whim is punishable by being sent over the wall.

I wish I was just writing a dystopian future novel, but I genuinely fear this might happen.

After reading the cold, dry, stiff paper rag that is the “eat bugs!” catastrophe, I believe I deserve a meal filled with large mozzarella sticks, half pound hamburgers, large fries, and lamb meat.

Anyone pushing for a primarily bug-based diet is looking for two bullets to the back of their head once they can’t feed their families. This is the first step towards rationing foods. It’s no wonder why the Demoncrats want to destroy the middle class. If you take away their speech and guns, they can’t fight back.

Y'know, lots of towns and forresty-cities have a huge problem with the overpopulation of deer. Why not push for more of an emphasis on meat consisting of deer products instead of maggots?
That makes me wonder, how much of an industry for deer meat exists? I remember skinning the meat off of a deer. The meat was delicious and I wish I could buy it again. There’s stuff for deer jerky you can buy, but I am not familiar with much else.
