As the uber - sociopath Bill Gates and his crazy cronies tool up to reinvest the money they stole from us poor taxpayers with their pandemic and vaccines scam by lobbying goverbments to tax cow farts and dung heaps and pig or chicken houses in the cause of saving the planet, thus making meat too expensive for ordinary punters, while simultaneously offering us the replacement for rib eye steaks, pork chops, bacon, curried chicken and lamb kebabs in the form of lab grown meat, we are hearing that, gratifyingly Gates might be set to lose a bundle on his latest obsession.
The lab grown artificial meat Gates plans to start manufacturing has, during its development stage, fallen at every hurdle. So did Windows 10 but that didn't stop it being forced on us, you might well be thinking. Well that may be true, but a slimeburger is a different cut of meat to a computer operating system. A series of government sanctioned deals that broke every law in existence relating to monopolies gave Windows a dominant market position. Gates might establish a monopoly on slime as a foodstuff but cannot stop people finding out that no matter how much they love read meat, there are many tasty vegetarian options that will be more appealing than patties of bacteria crap.
And that's just the human angle, wait 'til you see the numbers.

Don’t Be Fooled: Lab-Grown Meat Is a Disaster in the Making
Fake meats aren’t about your health or a healthy environment — they’re a tool to phase out farmers and ranchers and replace them with an ultra-processed food product that can be controlled by patents.

- Underneath the greenwashed façade, lab-grown meat has been hyped beyond reality and its promises are slated to fall flat.
- In February, the Good Food Institute (GFI), a nonprofit group behind the alternative protein industry, released a techno-economic analysis of cultivated meat, which claims cultured meat could be economically feasible by 2030; this is disputed by several experts.
- One expert estimated that the cost for 1 kilogram (kg) (35.27 ounces) of cell culture product for human consumption would cost in excess of $8,500 to $3,600 per kilogram.
- Pharmaceutical-grade specifications and aseptic “clean rooms” would be necessary due to the slow growth rate of culture cells, which makes them extremely vulnerable to contamination from bacteria and viruses — GFI’s report assumes only “food-grade” specifications.
- When lab-grown chicken made by U.S. startup Eat Just debuted in Singapore in 2020, it was produced using fetal bovine serum, largely canceling out one of the key tenets of the cultured meat rhetoric — that it’s made without animals.
- GFI’s life-cycle analysis found that cultured meat may be worse for the environment than conventionally produced chicken and pork if conventional energy sources are used.
- Fake meats are not about your health or the environment’s — they’re a tool to phase out farmers and ranchers and replace them with an ultraprocessed food product that can be controlled by patents.
Lab-grown, or cultured, meat is being promoted as the wave of the future — the “green, sustainable” way to have your meat and eat it too. No animal suffering, no greenhouse gas emissions — just meat-like protein that will taste exactly like the burgers and steaks you’re used to. Sound too good to be true?
Underneath the greenwashed façade, lab-grown meat has been hyped beyond reality and its promises are slated to fall flat. Fake meats are not about your health or the environment’s — they’re a tool to phase out farmers and ranchers and replace them with an ultraprocessed food product that can be controlled by patents.
Not only is ultraprocessed lab-grown meat not a healthy choice for humans, but its production is plagued with environmental and contamination concerns that are likely to thwart the industry before it ever gets off the ground.
Ironically, the real wave of the future won’t be found via technology but through the return to regenerative farming practices that have been time-tested and valued for ages.
GFI promises fake meat by 2030
In February 2021, the Good Food Institute (GFI), a nonprofit group behind the alternative protein industry, released a techno-economic analysis of cultivated meat, which was prepared by consulting firm CE Delft. In it, they developed a model to reduce the current costs of cultured meat production down to a point that would make it economically feasible in full-scale plants by 2030, a model they said is “feasible.”
But as Joe Fassler, The Counter’s deputy editor, wrote in an in-depth exposé about the actual science behind lab-grown meat, this would mean lowering “the production price from over $10,000 per pound today to about $2.50 per pound over the next nine years — an astonishing 4,000-fold reduction.” ...
