A Swedish behavioral scientist has suggested that it may be necessary to turn to cannibalism and start eating humans in order to save the planet.

Appearing on Swedish television to talk about an event based around the "food of the future," Magnus Söderlund said he would be holding seminars on the necessity of consuming human flesh in order to stop climate change.

Environmentalists blame the meat and farming industry for a large part of what they claim is the warming of the earth.

According to Söderlund, a potential fix would be the Soylent Green-solution of eating dead bodies instead.

[Ed note: At first I was going to give this story a pass and then, well... this site is called SoylentNews said name being tangentially related to Soylent Green and the tag line is: "SoylentNews is people", so it only goes to follow that you are what you eat, right? Feel free to comment seriously, but I'm quite frankly more interested in what kind of fun the community can have with this story! Some jokes just write themselves. --martyb]

    Save the planet, eh? Okay, he's had his fun and fame suggesting we turn to cannibalism. Makes Dr. Strangelove's proposal that we abandon monogamy pretty tame in comparison.

    What other methods could we employ to Save the Planet? The B-Ark?

    One Neutron bomb, delivered to the point of highest population density on one randomly selected day per year. Too bad about the fringe effect survivors.
