Margje Callis sifts through a container filled with Buffalo worms at an insect farm in Ermelo January 12, 2011. Insects are already bred as food for birds, lizards and monkeys at the Callis family's farm near the university, and now the owners see a chance to sell bugs for human consumption. All you need to do to save the rainforest, improve your diet, better your health, cut global carbon emissions and slash your food budget is eat bugs. Mealworm quiche, grasshopper springrolls and cuisine made from other creepy crawlies is the answer to the global food crisis, shrinking land and water resources and climate-changing carbon emissions, Dutch scientist Arnold van Huis says.

A Chinese migrant worker sifts sand at a construction site in Beijing April 4, 2007. An estimated 200 million migrant workers -- who in recent years have flocked from the vast, poor countryside to the booming cities -- often lacked proper health care, may have their pay withheld and were vulnerable to exploitation, Amnesty International report said.

Brazilian wildcat miners, or garimpeiros, walk among their tents set up in clearings they made in virgin Amazon rainforest to sieve through soil in search of gold, as some 6,000 miners have set up camp in Novo Aripuana in the forest 80 km (50 miles) by road and river from the town of Apui in Amazonas state, February 1, 2007. Since the discovery of the gold deposits became public in late December, peasants, politicians and even priests have picked up shovels and axes to dig into the heavy clay soil and panned the earth at a nearby branch of the Juma river. Brazilian troops and police have started patrolling the sprawling wildcat gold mine dubbed the New El Dorado deep in the Amazon jungle to curb crime, disease and environmental damage.
