Who’s Up For Lab Grown Meat To Save The Planet From Overheating?

It’s not the first time the Cult of Climastrology has pushed this (I have a few posts here and here and here, among others), and won’t be the last. You also do not see them giving up their own consumption of meat

Fund development of lab-grown meat to fight climate change, experts tell EU leaders

Experts at an influential think tank are calling on EU leaders to back the expansion of more lab-grown meat to enable Europe to help tackle climate change.

The Royal Institute of International Affairs, known as Chatham House, says new high-tech foodstuffs will be vital to the EU meeting its goals on climate change, human health and drug resistance.

Animal agriculture is a significant driver of carbon dioxide emissions, through deforestation when swathes of land are used instead to grow feed crops for livestock.

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, livestock accounts for 14.5 per cent of global emissions.

Raising meat animals on farms is also a significant source of methane, which is about 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

The report recommends that policymakers write new regulations on labelling and product naming, and invest in research and development of lab-grown meat.

It also says EU chiefs should prioritise development of the “meat analogues” industry – lab-grown meat and plant-based food that resembles meat.

Ah, the old “let’s get government to fund it and force people to comply” shtick. Strange how this keeps coming into play, eh?
