It’s Come To This: Poop Burgers To Reduce Greenhouse Gases

The story gets WAY more sickening beyond that headline (and the picture and video at the story link), folks: Japan scientist synthesizes meat from human feces

It’s being called the “poop burger”. Japanese scientists have found a way to create artificial meat from sewage containing human feces.

Somehow this feels like a Vonnegut plotline: population boom equals food shortage. Solution? Synthesize food from human waste matter. Absurd yes, but Japanese scientists have actually discovered a way to create edible steaks from human feces.

Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, has developed steaks based on proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage approached the scientist because of an overabundance of sewage mud. They asked him to explore the possible uses of the sewage and Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein because of all the bacteria.

Urp! And, why did they do this?

Inhabitat notes that “the meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals.” Livestock also consume huge amounts of resources and space in efforts to feed ourselves as well as the controversy over cruelty to animals. Ikeda’s recycled poop burger would reduce waste and emissions, not to mention obliterating Dante’s circle for gluttons.

There you go, Climate Alarmists: you should purchase and eat these poop burgers, which cost 10-20 times the price of regular meat. (via Climate Depot)

    There is no way in hell that this can be legal. There is no way in hell that this can be even healthy. Can you imagine the possible disease vectors that could slip through?

    And no, NO… eating human waste is just not going to happen.

    And how can you get “steak” out of …. FECES!?!?

    Ok, let’s think this through. You have this psychotic climate alarmist group who wants to do away with the eating of animals. Thus, there will be no meat in this diet. So, what will be the “outcome” of that diet? A non-meat based feces!! So, how do you get meat out of non-meat-based feces?!!?

    Or, are we calling this feces…. “steak like”. Like Veggie Burgers?

    Is it April 1st?!?!??!

    OT (sorta). AGW Alarmists claim that cattle farming causes excess Methane production. I wonder how much Methane and CO2 is produced from sewage reclamation?

    I will give California one thing, using sewage reclamation to produce energy.

  2. Well, I’d say theAlarmists have jumped the shark, but they did that long ago
