I love it when I come home from work and find money from fans post ideas in the mail. The other day I came home and found the latest issue of National Geographic.
National Geographic is cool, but normally I don’t get SHTF excited when it arrives – but what do I see inside? THIS:
Mmmmmmm – a one page article on bugs! “Don’t bug out,” the article states.
The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization is working on a policy to promote insects as food worldwide. Turns out beetles, crickets, and many other types are rather nutritious. A serving of small grasshoppers, for instance, packs nearly the same protein punch as ground beef. And insects can be farmed more cheaply and on much less land.
How many people would pass up creepy crawly bugs if TEOTWAWKI hit? A lot. You know what bugs are? Easy eating. More:
As the global population nears seven billion, the FAO sees insect farming as a move toward food security – a subject for its upcoming conference on entomophagy, the practice of insect eating.
The UN is discussing food security …. there’s a reason for that ….

BTW: I wrote about Grub Worms Equal Good Grub When Good Times Go Bad back in 2008 …. and now the UN is promoting it? Coincidence?
