MAN MADE MEAT
Test tube burgers don’t exactly sound appetising, but recent scientific experiments into producing cultured or in vitro meat from stem cells do hold considerable promise. A report in The Sunday Times of 26th June remarked that global meat demand is predicted to double by 2050, yet livestock farming is already responsible for 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Oxford University has estimated that man made meat would reduce emissions by 80-95%, using 35-60% less energy and requiring 98% less land. Apparently man made fish fillets were developed ten years ago. I wonder why we are not yet hooked.
