MSM catches up with ACS blog on Entomophagy

NBC News is catching up with our blog:

How Crickets Could Help Save the Planet
Edible insects are a viable, untapped resource that could help meet the food and water demands of the world's ever-expanding population. And it's really no wonder: Insects are highly nutritious, and also far more environmentally friendly to raise than conventional livestock. Compared with cows, pigs, or chickens, crickets require a fraction of the land, water, and food, and produce less greenhouse gases and ammonia.

Gee, we wrote a post (TIC) in September 2014

Eat Insects and save the Earth from Global Warming

It's good to see at least one of the MSM is catching up with the Australian Climate Sceptics.




Footnote:

Entomophagy is the human use of insects as food.

Global Warming/Cooling at Nobbys

Nobbys Head Picture: Wikipedia
Working on another project, I needed a record of the temperatures at Nobby's Head. Anthony Cox provided the following Bureau of Meteorology link for Average Monthly Mean Maximum temperatures for Nobbys from 1862 to 2016:

Mean Maximum Temperature

Nobbys is a headland located at the Southern Entrance to Newcastle Harbour, New South Wales.

My project was for February and so, with the help of an Excel spreadsheet, I plotted each year and then plotted an average for each decade.


When Graphed the data look like this:


If there has been global warming, it certainly has bypassed Newcastle.
