I swear I have been talking about this for ages. Not continuously, mind you, but off and on. It’s an idea that makes so much sense.
It’s wasteful, messy, costly, and most importantly, cruel, to kill millions upon millions of animals each and every day to feed our dinner plates … if we can figure out an alternative.
And I’ve been thinking for some time now there is a different possibility: cloned and artificially cultured meat.
It’d be safe – grown in controlled conditions. It’d be environmentally friendly – requiring far fewer resources, with less space, and fewer unwanted byproducts, than ordinary meat. It’d be more ethically desirable – actual animals need not die.
In short, it’s a much more sustainable way to feed hungry human mouths.
