To be honest. Is it crazy that we could genetically modify proteins to make 'perfect' beef?

Is there any ethics of moral issues with lab farming beef?


I wouldn't eat that crap, but it isn't my place to criticize or steer anyone who would away from it. In the same way, AOC et al can STFU about anyone's eating habits apart from their own, know their damn role, and knock off the white knight crusading horsecrap.

Seems par for the course for leftists.
Rules for us, not for them. Take from us, give to them.
The new socio-fascism is rising.

OK. AOC aside ... if you were given a blind taste test of GMO beef and farm raised beef and found the GMO beef to be better would you consider it?

Oh hell no. Eat that GM stuff and you'll get carrot genes and turn orange!

For there to be net zero emissions, there has to be something to offset what is being produced.

What is the plan to offset the methane exuded by bovine flatulence and belches?

No she isn't. I can't tell what she is eating but it's not a hamburger. He is eating a burger but not her.

My sister turned orange as a kid because she ate to many carrots... It can happen to you!

The extensive analysis showed a significant reduction in GHG emissions under the AMP grazing system, because the soil absorbed enough carbon to cancel out the methane emissions.

No, not after learning it was GMO. Look, I think Cheez Whiz is the damn tastiest thing imaginable to smear on a slice of bread... but I haven't eaten it (or Velveeta or American cheese) in many, many years because I know it's a chemical science experiment, not food. I haven't had regular candy in over a decade because of the poisonous food dyes added to them. Chicken nuggets... again, tasty as all hell, haven't had one in a decade. When I was a child my taste buds dictated what I ate, as an adult, my body tells me what it needs food-wise.

Genetically modified doesn't mean it's a bad thing tho.

Do you avoid corn, soy, chicken products?

I've heard reforestation is a thing, too. But that's a neat trick as well.

Neo just doesn't seem to like people suggesting that he might be better off if he changed his ways a bit. Touchy. I guess it implies that he's doing something wrong or something.

He said he avoids soy.

But you know you can get GM free vodka? I laughed and laughed when I saw that.

This seems like it would work for a time, but eventually the soil reaches a carbon saturation level at which point no more carbon would be sequestered. This method also seems to be less efficient and require more land area. From the actual study that article you linked is based upon:


The high rate of C sequestration observed in our study may be the result of the recent management intervention from continuous grazing to AMP in 2010 (Smith, 2014). However, we are unsure for how long this high rate of C sequestration may continue. Based on the 3.53 Mg C ha−1 yr−1 of C sequestered over a 9-year period in Wang et al. (2015), we expect that our soils could continue to sequester at this rate for several years. However, because soils that are further from C saturation will accumulate C faster than soils near saturation, and because our estimated soil C sequestration rate is much greater than the 0.41 Mg C ha−1 yr−1 indicated by Conant et al. (2003), we expect continued sequestration, likely to diminish over time (Minasny et al., 2017; Stewart et al., 2007). Therefore, we caution about extrapolating the reported rates for an extended period. Continued collection of soil C data and monitoring of AMP grazing systems in the Upper Midwest will shed more light on the ultimate C sequestration and storage potential.

...

While it is unclear how long this effect will be observed, it is reasonable to hypothesize that it would continue, possibly at a reduced rate, for several years into the future.

...

Studies suggest that intensification of beef production systems would significantly reduce GHG emissions. However, as illustrated by this study in the Upper Midwest, under AMP grazing, more extensive (grass-based) but intensively managed beef finishing can deliver environmental benefits (such as soil C sequestration and other ecosystem services) with less environmental impact per kg CW than intensive FL finishing. While AMP grazing requires twice as much land than FL, if effectively implemented over a large area, total C sequestration in the Upper Midwest could increase substantially. This does imply less overall beef production in the region, albeit with greater environmental benefits from what is produced. Further, before AMP grazing can be realistically implemented across a large landscape, a concerted effort must be implemented to educate livestock producers on its benefits, as a great majority of the United States still employs continuous grazing for grass-fed beef production.


Also, from the same article you linked:


According to a 2013 Savory Institute report, if the method were used on “up to 5 billion hectares of degraded grassland soils,” it could sequester at least 10 billion tons of atmospheric carbon in soils—the approximate equivalent of five times the area of Europe taking up a year’s worth of global carbon emissions. The report further claims that this would lower “greenhouse gas concentrations to pre-industrial levels in a matter of decades.” Savory has been heavily criticized for lack of scientific rigor in these and other claims.


So the next question, at least to me, is where do we do all of this grazing? Is there a land area approximately five times the area of Europe in which we can graze this cattle?

I do avoid most corn, don't eat soy at all, and the chicken I buy is fed a low corn diet.

It honestly depends on the GMO. If we're talking early era GMO that involved splicing and cross breeding, big whoop... if we're talking about lab DNA manipulation to yield pest resistance or sterile seeds, then helll no.

She is.

My sources say that she was so mad that she punched her "Hello Kitty" congressional back pack.


OK this site has brought me many a smile but this was the first time a post made me blow raspberry and start laughing. Thank you so much, I truly needed that.
