Want To Save The Planet? A New Study Says Eat More Bugs, Less Meat


Solving the climate-change crisis could be as simple as looking underneath your kitchen fly swatter. With animal agriculture accounting for 12 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, which is about the same as all modes of transport combined, researchers at the University of Edinburgh set to work looking at alternatives to meat and dairy, Treehugger reports.
