CNN’s marathon “town hall” event on climate change brought us seven hours straight of climate hysteria, driven by the drivel of the 2020 democratic frontrunners.
Ten progressive politicians took the stage this week, proposing any number of wild ideas aimed at bringing humanity back from the brink of a climate catastrophe.
Some of the suggestions were benign and repetitive; move away from fossil fuels, ban plastic straws, eat less meat.
But that last suggestion is getting a new twist today as a scientist in Sweden believes that cannibalism could be the key to preventing global warming.

Swedish behavioural scientist Magnus Söderlund has suggested that eating other people after they die could be a means of combatting climate change.
The scientist mentioned the possibility of cannibalism during a broadcast on Swedish television channel TV4 this week about a fair in Stockholm regarding “food of the future”.
Söderlund is set to hold seminars at the event, entitled “Gastro Summit — about the future of food” where he intends to discuss the possibility of eating people in the name of cutting down greenhouse emissions.
According to his research, the main problem with the idea is the widespread taboo of eating human flesh and said that conservative attitudes could make it hard to convince Swedes at large to take up the practice of cannibalism.
It isn’t just Swedes who will be hard to convince, but that hasn’t stopped several other groups from pushing the idea as well.
Söderlund is not alone in his call to reject the taboo of cannibalism. Last year, noted atheist and evolutionary scientist Richard Dawkins advocated for lab-grown meat and suggested it may be used to “overcome our taboo against cannibalism”.
Psychologists Jared Piazza and Neil McLatchie of Lancaster University also questioned the taboo on cannibalism in an article for Newsweek last month but ultimately did not endorse breaking it.
As annoying as paper straws and slow-moving hybrid vehicles are, it seems that the alternatives could be much, much worse.
