The Madeleine Brand Show

VAT Meat

What's for dinner in 2050?  It's a question scientists in Britian are trying to answer now. 

What's the rush?  In 40 years our planet will have over 9 billion people and possibly a much harsher climate.  Feeding everyone will be a major challenge.

The Guardian is reporting that at least one scientist has come up with an answer: artificial meat, made in a giant vat.

(I almost threw up while writing that sentence)

Peta is throwing their weight behind the proposal, offering $1 million to the first scientist to develop in vitro meat.

The reality show pitch really writes itself:

"It's Top Chef meets The Blob!"

Stay tuned...
