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. While 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.
Eating a normal human diet makes it be too warm out according to progressive doctrine, so we must find alternatives.
Five advantages of eating weeds are listed: (1) they are easy to grow; (2) some contain nutrients; (3) like everything else, our diet needs diversity; (4) you can learn about soil from what weeds grow from it; and best of all (5) weeds taste great, according to the author.
Another benefit is the low price of weeds. Many can be had for free. The next time a panhandler approaches your car at a stoplight, point to the tasty and nutritious weeds sprouting up through cracks in the pavement and tell him, “Bon appétit!”
Most details of life after the Great Reset remain a mystery, but at least we have a good idea what will be on the menu for those of us who don’t hobnob at Davos: bugs and weeds.
