Eat Your Greens
Climate change and global warming is just one of those things that are constantly being addressed from every possible angle. You’d think at some point, people will finally run out of ideas on how to proactively reduce carbon emissions and properly execute on a few of them, right? Think Again.
The World Economic Forum has recently published a couple of articles on their website talking about some “creative” ways to reduce CO2 emissions. You will not believe what they have in store this time around. Eat Weeds, Eat Bugs and To Drink? Sewage Water.
On the World Economic Forum’s official website, Douglas From published an article saying: “Finding new plant-based foods is becoming increasingly urgent with the world’s population forecast to grow by two billion in the next 30 years. Farming animals for meat generates 14.5% of total global greenhouse emissions, weeds capture carbon from the atmosphere and can therefore help to control climate change.”
For Broom, this means we should slap away the steaks and go dig at our lawn for dinner. The man says that “Weeds can be nutritious and tasty” and are even easy to grow.
When I wake up and think about what delicious meal I am going to have today, not once did the idea to hop in the garden to grab a few dandelions ever crossed my mind. Is this a question of habit? Or is there some logic behind this. More importantly, would you ever eat weeds?
