Firenze Sage: save the planet [from climate change]- fall in ditch
April 8, 2018
Let’s do it in the dirt …. as climate change advocacy works … when done by Al Gore’s daughter who lay down in a pipeline protesting climate change and safety issues.
Karenna Gore was among demonstrators who tried to block construction activity on the site by lying in a trench dug for the pipeline and refusing to move until firefighters removed them, said protest group Resist the Pipeline & Stop the West Roxbury Lateral.
Judge Mary Ann Driscoll has dismissed criminal charges against protestors including Al Gore’s daughter on the grounds that their actions were necessary to prevent climate change.
Judge sets aside charges in pipeline protest

The protesters, including Karenna Gore, the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, were facing charges of trespassing and disturbing the peace after climbing into a construction trench. On Tuesday, prosecutors asked a judge to convert the criminal charges into civil infractions, saying in the event of a conviction they were unlikely to ask for any further punishment. After allowing the motion, Judge Mary Ann Driscoll found the defendants not responsible, saying she agreed with their argument that their actions were necessary to combat climate change.
“Based on the very heartfelt expressions of the defendants who believe, and I don’t question their beliefs in any respect, who believe in their cause because they believe they were entitled to invoke the necessity defense, I’ll accept what they said,” Driscoll said.
Firenze Sage: What if they were covered with dirt and the defense was we don’t believe in climate change — or the justice system for that matter.
Do what you want as your beliefs will save thee.
Climate change: the roach coach is no longer a metaphor

Prevent climate change by eating cockroaches? cockroach bread?
From the “ew! just ewwwww!” department of climate salvation, comes this idea that’s sure to catch on with people who are really concerned about reducing their carbon footprint.
Forget steak, forget Soylent Green, it’s roach-bread!
Looking for an easy, affordable way to get a high protein diet? Researchers of the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG) in Rio Grande do Sul may have come across a crunchy answer, although it might turn your stomach; cockroach-laced bread.
Just like peanuts: ‘Tasty’ cockroach bread may feed world’s population in climate change era
The threat of climate change looms large, providing a unique set of challenges for the future, including how we will feed an estimated 9 billion people by 2030. One group of researchers in Brazil has proposed a different, stomach-churning solution. Cockroaches made into bread.
“They remind us of ches[t]nut or peanut. They’re really good and tasty, and (their presence) does not affect the flavor of the bread,” said Myrian Melado, a researcher at the Federal University of Rio Grande, as reported by AsiaOne.
The practice of eating insects, known as entomophagy, has existed for millennia but has been largely overlooked in the western world since the agricultural revolution.
However, as climate change continues to threaten the long-term viability of traditional livestock agriculture, scientists are once again turning to insects as a potential solution to world hunger both now and in the future.
