Default Future Food - Cultured meat or vegetarian meat instead of billions of animals in industrial factory farms?

www.futurefood.org is all about a future that does not require
billions of animals kept in industrial factory farms, instead using
"cultured meat" (grown in "laboratory" without using animals) or
vegetarian plant-based meat as well as replacing egg-products or milk-
products.

The aim is to bring an end to animal suffering, reduce environmental
pollution, starvation, health risks and so on, by no longer using
billions of domestic animals as meat, milk and egg machines, and to
replace these products with ones which are healthier and are produced
via more environmentally friendly and ethical means.

Will this be the end of animal-suffering in factory-farms and the
beginning of a faster evolution towards animal rights?

LIVE EARTH + eating meat is like making a car-race to reduce number of
victims in traffic

.... or collective cigarette smoking on an event against lung cancer.
As you mentioned, meat-production (livestock) is the biggest among the
primary sources of climate-change.
But as paradoxical it seems, this is what happened yesterday at Live
Earth: People eating meat and talking about saving the world-climate.
Would have been great to make such a huge festival authentic and
vegetarian, this would have been a courageous step!!

Yes, it would have been courageous. But, sometimes, just sometimes, it
takes little-bitty-baby steps. It's hard for most people to take in the
entire message or concept. Everyone has to start and proceed at their own
pace. Veganism is not an overnight thing. It's a life style. And you
can't do something if you don't even know what it is. That's the sad part
of any lifestyle. Learning.
