SoylentNews is people

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]

    Now meatbags wanna turn into eatmeatbags, our robocalypse plans have to be downsized again.

    A question, though. The solution offered is incomplete. Who eats whom according to what criteria? I guess a study not addressing this is unworthy of attention.

    For the series history of the world, the modern age:
    - peasant
    - what
    - you in dark age you need enlightenment
    - o rly
    - come out of the countryside, it is dirty
    - ok
    - get to work at the machines
    - ok
    - get into the global debt scam
    - ok
    - happy now?
    - well I have clean clothes and shiny unnecessary things but my son has cancer at 8 and my daughter is overweight and suicidal
    - wat
    - oh sorry I got ahead of the program, here, wave this banner to save the planet.
