"Entomophagy: Feeding a Growing Population Without Destroying the Planet," by Robert Nathan Allen
Current agricultural systems will struggle to keep pace as more and more of the world demand meat on the menu. An overwhelming 80 percent of the global population embraces edible insects as a protein source, yet most Westerners have a deeply ingrained psychological aversion to entomophagy. For Nerd Nite, Little Herds will provide samples of Austin baker Emily Breedlove's "scrumptious" insect-flour chocolate chip cookies!
