Here's a brief piece from the NY Times on cultured meat products:
I actually got a few laughs out of this, but that may be because I have been in an out of town meeting (Committee on Science, Technology and Faith) for two days, and am just plain silly.
It does raise a few questions, though.
Can technology provide a magic bullet for the hungry on a stressed planet anymore now than it has in the past?
Is creating cultured meat just letting the richer folks on the planet once again refuse to face their need to change?
Why is it that we can't get creative with vegetables, and use lower tech means to meet our need for a varied diet?
And who is it over twelve who liked chicken nuggets anyway?
