    $315,000 test-tube burger marks milestone in future of meat-eating

    £200,000 test-tube burger marks milestone in future meat-eating (Guardian)
    ---
    Dr Mark Post, head of physiology at Maastricht University, plans to unveil a complete burger – produced at a cost of more than £200,000 – this October.
    ---
    The project, funded by a wealthy, anonymous, individual aims to slash the number of cattle farmed for food, and in doing so reduce one of the major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions.

    "Meat demand is going to double in the next 40 years and right now we are using 70% of all our agricultural capacity to grow meat through livestock," Post said.

    "You can easily calculate that we need alternatives. If you don't do anything meat will become a luxury food and be very, very expensive."

    I prefer buffalo burgers.

    If I'm going faux-burger give me a Gardenburger. So this guy wasted alot of money; has he never shopped at Costco?
