There is an interesting discussion growing around the contribution of meat production in relation to climate change. It is not just about methane gas from animals (including us!) but particularly about the destruction of forests to create grazing for cattle.
The British have to watch what we say about this having cut down most of our forests as the industrial revolution took off and the population expanded and higher living standards let to increased meat-eating.
Intellectually I would like to be a vegetarian but I have to confess to a weakness for meat. I do eat a lot less than I use to but I just find a fully vegetarian diet a bit off-putting.
Any chance of a scientific breakthrough that will enable us to grow meat tasting like meat in laboratories!?
