'...yet Morano would refuse to take them off' -- [Morano Response: Nice try Prof. Prall. The '2009 U.S. Senate Report of 700 plus Dissenting Scientists' was very transparent and did allow for corrections and removal of scientists. It featured the voices of scientists ignored by UN and media. It was not a 'blacklist', but an 'alternative' report to UN propaganda.]
'Since (2007) I have become... more questioning of attribution of warming, simply because IPCC performed poorly in distinguishing between natural variability and anthropogenic effects or hardly considered the issue at all' -- 'Perhaps we are seeing the death throes of the old guard. Perhaps out of these ashes will emerge a more solid scientific view on climate and global change, free of orthodoxy and invigorated by debate'
'The [Black List] failed miserably, getting incorrect names, scientific specializations and numbers of citations..Schneider eased this garbage into print by virtue of being a member of the NAS which meant he could publish without peer review'
Time Mag: Global food production accounts for one-third of all greenhouse-gas emissions, according to a comprehensive study published this year in the journal Nature Food that looked at every aspect of food production from transportation to packaging. Meat production alone makes up nearly 60% of that total. The study underscores the growing consensus that in order to stave off the worst impacts of climate change, the world needs a dramatic rethinking of how food is produced and consumed...
Increasingly, companies and scientists are viewing insects as an environmentally sustainable alternative source of protein. Crickets, grasshoppers and beetles are already commercially produced and processed for human and animal consumption. Ynsect, a 10-year-old French company, is focused on mealworms, the larval stage of beetles.
Ynsect co-founder and CEO Antoine Hubert: "We are not far from reaching tipping points where then things get worse and it cascades and waterfalls—you can’t stop it anymore. Time is very critical...There is a huge need to reduce our consumption of beef. We should keep beef consumption, grazing, on a smaller scale with high levels of fresh products. But everything that is a processed meat should be 100% replaced at some point by alternatives. Insects will be a part of the answer."
