Creative solutions to the “climate catastrophe”.

He saved villages….before his mother could “control her own body.”

Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to “awaken the idea.” Soderlund’s argument for human cannibalism was front and center during a panel talk called “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” at the Gastro Summit, reports The Epoch Times. “Conservative” taboos against cannibalism, he said, can change over time if peoples simply tried eating human flesh.

The United Nations is already lecturing us about reducing our red meat consumption to save the planet. The Economist also suggested that while people in third world countries are living longer and healthier lives thanks to meat consumption, it doesn’t bode well for the environment. Don’t woke-scolds call that “Neo-Colonialism”? So idea #1 is, “eat more people.” I wonder if Chick til-A’s “eat more chikin” was the inspiration. Probably not.

I don’t know if “Mayor Pete” (ButtplugButtigeig-say it slowly) is now his real name, but this fount of wisdom, in an interview on CNN (big surprise!), was asked how he would deal with this “existential crisis” that is “paralyzing” by the anchor who has done her part by not drinking from a plastic straw for the last 6 months. “My climate plan is about summoning the energies of this country overcoming the Great Depression, winning WWII, going to the moon, it required something of us. We need to stand taller….guilt about using straws, not eating meat, that’s doing our part, that’s the exciting part of my plan, everyone doing their part.” No, I am not going to ridicule equating elimination of plastic straws with the huge achievements he cited, that’s the low hanging fruit of satire. Rather, let’s consider how his plan would reduce plastic straws and meat consumption. Since many people like using plastic straws and eating meat, and most of them probably won’t give them up voluntarily, that leaves what? Taking both away? Criminalizing both? Don’t laugh, a few of short years ago nobody suggested that men could become women and women could become men. So idea #2 is stop plastic straws and meat consumption.

Then there’s Bernie “do I really need to say my last name?” Sanders. In response to a teacher in the audience named, appropriately enough, Martha Readyoff (really, get ready to off babies) “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?

Sanders: “Well, Martha, the answer is yes. And the answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions…So I think, especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies, and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, it’s something I very, very strongly support.” He uses the example of birth control, but we all know what happens when birth control doesn’t work. Sounds suspiciously like “reduce babies of color” to me. So idea #3 is fewer kids in poor countries, and if that’s not enough, how about fewer kids everywhere. And Martha, have you ever heard of Malthus? He predicted that overpopulation would destroy the global food supply. Last year? No, in 1798.

Whatever happened to “let’s work to lift people out of poverty?” I suggest you watch the movie The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind. Against all the odds, a 13 year old boy in Malawi invents an unconventional way to save his family and village from famine. William Kamkuamb was born in the country of Malawi, in Africa. When he was 14 years old, a terrible drought hit the village where he lived. People had nothing to eat and drink. Being an excellent student and very fond of physics, he decides to save his native village from starvation. In the library he finds scientific books on physics. Unfortunately, they were all exclusively in English. But our hero did not give up. For a long time studying pictures and different symbols in Latin, he got an idea to build a wind generator. is a remarkable true story about human inventiveness and its power to overcome crippling adversity. It will inspire anyone who doubts the power of one individual’s ability to change his community and better the lives of those around him. Lucky for his village that Bernie’s plan didn’t make it there in time.
