In a show of more climate hysteria, the New York Post reports that a Swedish scientist suggest we eat human flesh to fight climate change. The report fails to explain just exactly how cannibalism would make a positive impact on the climate.
This irrational extreme is clearly designed to further stir people up and cause division. But as far as the climate goes, the reality is that there have always been heat waves, droughts and changes and man has always sought to control the weather. Our scientist’s macabre suggestion brings the Aztecs to mind as Aztec priests practiced human sacrifice to end drought – the ceremony ending in a festival of cannibalism.
“”The Aztecs sacrificed tens of thousands of people in an effort to stop Central American droughts. But at least they weren’t dense enough to blame normal weather patterns on “climate change”” Like the Aztecs, many scientists believe that sacrificial offerings are necessary to stabilize climate. But there are some key differences.
1. Aztecs correctly believed that the climate was controlled by the moods of the Sun. Modern climate scientists have not progressed that far yet.
2. Aztec priests believed that only a small percentage of the population needed to be sacrificed, whereas the modern priests believe that everyone (except for themselves) needs to sacrifice.”
Scientist suggests eating human flesh to fight climate change

A Swedish scientist speaking at Stockholm summit last week offered an unusual possible tactic in combating global climate change: eating human flesh.
Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to “awaken the idea.”
Soderlund’s argument for human cannibalism was front and center during a panel talk called “Can You Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” at the Gastro Summit, reports the Epoch Times. “Conservative” taboos against cannibalism, he said, can change over time if people simply tried eating human flesh.
Some of the talking points at the seminar included whether humans were too selfish to “live sustainably” and if cannibalism is the solution to food sustainability in the future.
When asked during an interview after his talk if he personally would try human flesh, Soderlund said he was open to the idea…
