The era of robotic, factory-produced test tube hamburger meat is nearly here. Yesterday, the first stem-cell-grown hamburger “meat patty” was grilled up and consumed by taste testers who declared it edible. The burger cost $332,000 to “grow” in test tubes, a project spearheaded by vascular biologist Mark Post of Maastricht University, reports The Guardian.
That’s one expensive burger, of course, but it’s only the first step in developing the technology to mass-produce stem cell meat using robotic “Skynet” factories instead of cows. The idea is to have automated factories churning out stem cell beef patties at lower cost and without the need for real animals to roam around eating grass and farting methane into the atmosphere — a phenomenon that horrifies global warming alarmists.
Animal rights groups are also applauding the idea, as growing meat in factories doesn’t require the slaughter of live, conscious animals who feel pain and experience extreme torture during the slaughtering process. But it does require the stem cell meat be continuously bathed in a “nutrient fluid” similar to mammal blood, bringing back images of the human pods in The Matrix. Where, exactly, are the Skynet beef factories going to get all these “nutrient fluids?”
