What Say To A $300k Burger To Save Us From Bad Weather?

This sounds much like many of the Warmist prescriptions

(WRAL) For hamburgers that cost more than $300,000 to produce, you might expect fries and a shake too.

But this is no ordinary burger being served to two volunteer taste-testers in London on Monday. This meat was grown in a laboratory from stem cells of cattle.

Just to be clear, the did not use embryonic stem cells, which tend to be monumental failures

Mark Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger after five years of research, hopes that making meat in labs could eventually help solve the food crisis and fight climate change.

    Want to solve the food crisis? Research square foot gardening. Teach this skill to people in areas with food distribution issues and you’ll see a huge improvement in the fight against world hunger.

  2. Scorched_My_Gumballs says:

    Wait UncleDan, you want people to learn something? And, even, to learn to grow their own food?

    How can you be so heartless? How can you be so racist? How dare you sir!!!

    That’s the reason we have FOOD STAMPS, SIR!! So people don’t have to get off their butts and do something. We give them free money for free food so that they don’t have to have “food-worries” like that.

    What if just one of those food gardens got a snail? HUH? DID YOU EVER THINK OF THAT MR. TEACH-THEM-TO-GROW?!!?! One snail can ruin an entire crop of food. And then where would they be? What gov’t resources, gov’t relief agencies, gov’t supported democrat-controlled 3rd parties would there be to help those troubled people through that dark snail-infested time? NONE!! WHY?!?!??! Because you failed to show them the way. The RIGHT way.

    BAH.

    Teach a man to fish, and he eats one fish. Teach a man how to call up his welfare application, and he can eat like a king.

    (on a more serious note, have any of you yet seen these so-called “burgers”? They’re like playdough mixed with congealed pink gravy. or, think of Placental fluid.)

    Only one problem Uncle Dan, The Food Cartel ain’t gonna let you grow your own food.

    Trojan Horse Law: The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

    …claims the bill doesn’t apply to “that tomato plant in your backyard.” As a lawyer, I am skeptical of this claim (I co-represented the prevailing defendant in the last successful constitutional challenge to federal regulation under the interstate commerce clause, United States v. Morrison (2000), one of only two cases in 70 years in which a challenge was successful). Congress’s power under the Constitution’s Commerce Clause is almost unlimited in the eyes of the courts, and thus can reach the “tomato plant in your backyard.”,,,

    The screaming from citizens got rid of the Commerce Clause (and lessened but did not eliminate red tape for the small guy) just as it did in the animal welfare act of 1998. HOWEVER the Commerce Clause was later added to the animal welfare act in 2002 after attention was directed elsewhere.

    When the USDA was trying to implement Animal ID as NAIS, they wanted farmers to get a ‘Premise ID’ that is permanently affixed to your land deed. As Derry Brownfield explained this essentially transfers ownership of your farm to the government.(see last five paragraphs of his article OUR LAND – COLLATERAL FOR THE NATIONAL DEBT)

    Despite farmers screaming HELL NO!!! and 5000 comments to that effect on the Federal Register. (Yeah I read them) The USDA kept trying (and getting shot down) until via a bit of subtrafuge (Commenting was munged-up) they got Animal ID ‘Passed’ via the Federal Register. Congress had nothing to say of course.

    Now the focus is on gardens:

    Welcome to Utah’s Garden Challenge: … Whether you grow a tomato in a pot, a row in a community garden, have backyard gardens, a CSA or working fruit and vegetable farm, we want to hear from you because you are an important resource as a food producer.

    USDA: Join the Movement

    Is your garden benefiting the community, incorporating sustainable practices and a collaborative effort? If yes to all three criteria, congratulations on growing a People’s Garden!

    Regardless of type – vegetable, beautification, wildlife, or other – new and existing gardens can receive the designation of a People’s Garden if they meet the three criteria.

    Not yet registered? Join now. Sign up online so your efforts can be recognized along with others across the Nation.

    When you register your garden it will be displayed on the People’s Garden Map to showcase your efforts. Let everyone know the type of garden, who’s involved, and how it benefits your neighborhood.

    Once registered you can share photos and request a free sign to show your support….

    People’s Gardens: Why Would the USDA Want People to Register Their Gardens?

    Update: I was corrected by someone and told that People’s Gardens are the name for Community Gardens, not people’s individual gardens. It still doesn’t sit well with me….

    It doesn’t sit well with me either and the designation is a bit ‘Wishy-washy’

    Just before the USDA tried to shove NAIS and Premise ID down everyone’s throat, the USDA sent out Ag Census Forms to anyone who subscribed to a horse or livestock magazine or gardening catalog. (Where the hell did they get that listing of names?) If you didn’t fill it out you got a second form and then a threatening letter and finally a phone call. (BTDT) The forms were several pages long and wanted a full listing of everything you owned, your livestock what you grew on how many acres…..

    Now tell me why in the name of the ten thousand little gods would the USDA want a data base of everyone growing food? (Think IBM and the Nazi link)

    Just add in the Executive Orders that allow the US Government to confiscate your garden and everything else or the Red Tape that makes practically every business in the USA a real gamble with your wealth and an excellent source of government funding.

    People get their danders up in arms when it comes to GMO vegetables. How happy are they going to be about this??

    Also, pink slime, anyone?

  5. Scorched_My_Gumballs says:

    At least pink-slime was based on meat. Before it was de-proteinized by acids.

    I just think of McD’s meats like I do hot dogs in general. There’s meat in there somewhere.

  6. john says:

    All stem cell research was based on embryonic stem cell work. It was the foundation upon which all rests

  7. Oh good grief. No, John, it’s not. There are many other types, including adult and placental. And all those others have created actual cures, treatments, and medicines without all the tumors that crop up from embryonic research. Which is why just about only government funded researchers work with embryonic, because private won’t waste time and money on worthless ventures.
