Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has a tasty way to beat global warming:

In an interview with The Guardian, Annan called the global livestock industry “a major threat to the climate” and suggested insects as an alternative protein source to meat.

“Eating insects is good for the environment and balanced diets,” he said.

Annan told The Guardian that the growing population and middle class are making it more difficult to meet meat demands.

“It represents 14.5 percent of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations,” he said.

You first, Kofi.
