Manufactured meat (no thanks)

Here’s a post from Dot Earth that left me with a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach. Yes, scientist can now manufacture “meat”(!) Why? So we can enjoy what we all crave without feeling guilty about the cruelty and environmental destruction. It’s obviously THE answer…

But one could envision someday a model, say, of a solar-powered facility in southern California or Singapore basically turning sunlight and desalinated seawater into growth medium and then tons of cruelty-free, sustainable nuggets of chicken essence.

Chicken essence — yum. This sounds straight out of the Monsanto Lab.  Maybe they’ll use actual chicken DNA for that extra authentic chicken [insert appropriate french term here]. Sign me up. I can’t wait for the opportunity to purchase family-size vats of man-made chicken protein, flavored with natural sea water!
