The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has expressed dismay that the normalization of “eating bugs” to achieve “net zero” has been delayed due to Brexit.

The state-owned news organization noted that the sale of edible insects in the UK became illegal after the so-called Brexit transition period ended.

Meanwhile, the “east bugs” campaign in Northern Ireland is still on track after it surrendered to the European Union as a customs and regulatory semi-colony.

The BBC report focused on two so-called “insect farmers” with an apparent commercial interest in the ‘eat bugs agenda.’

The bugs are being marketed as “superfoods” that “release far lower CO2 emissions than livestock farming.”

The two insect farmers are now intent on their potential contribution to achieving the ‘Net Zero’ ambitions of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF).

Here is what The World Economic Forum writes on its website:

The world’s population will reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. This means that despite only 4% of arable land on the surface of our planet, an additional 2 billion more humans will have to be fed.

To address this impending crisis, world experts and leaders will meet this autumn at the UN Food Summit and then the COP26. Often overlooked in these discussions is the potential role insects can play in helping meet this challenge.

Insects are a credible and efficient alternative protein source requiring fewer resources than conventional breeding. Studies suggest that for the same amount of protein produced, insects, mealworms in particular, require much less land than other sources of animal proteins. A study on crickets suggests they are twice as efficient in converting feed to meat as chicken, at least four times more efficient than pigs and 12 times more efficient than cattle.

Today, 12% of the world’s wild whole-fish catch is used for farmed fish in the form of fishmeal. An alternative to fishmeal can be the products resulting from the processing of insects such as the Tenebrio Molitor. It has been shown that with mealworm, mortality in farmed fish is reduced by 40%.

Insect protein has high-quality properties and can be used as an alternative source of protein throughout the food chain, from feed for aquaculture to ingredients for nutritional supplements for humans and pets. All animal species, regardless of their diet, eat insects in their natural diet.

“[E]xperts tell us that, if we want to save the planet, we should eat more insects,” the broadcaster asserted.

“Selling insects as food in the UK was essentially banned following Brexit, leaving the insect industry in limbo.”

The insect farmers, Tiziana Di Costanzo and Leo Taylor, championed the globalist green agenda narrative in the report, which was delivered more like an advertisement.

Di Costanzo argued that a switch to bug-eating “will, for example, allow the oceans to replenish,” while Taylor said it would “drive the UK towards Net Zero more rapidly.”

Britain’s Food Standard Agency said it had no intention to ban edible bugs at the end of the Brexit transition and is now looking at laws that legalize them again.

Taylor said he hoped Britain might go further and “make it easier for us to bring new species to the market.”

The ‘eat bugs agenda’ may be back on track soon.

The depopulationists are insane. They are trying to force a global famine with a phony climate crisis.
