I'm very surprised that most the organic food and drug crowd isn't railing against synthetic meat. I thought for sure they'd fanatically oppose it and try to get it banned just like they do with genetic engineering, vertical farming, artificial sweeteners, and vaccines. I guess they see the animal welfare benefits and lesser strain on farmland as a fair trade for less 'natural' food. Fine by me, if we in the science-based community can find common ground with them on something then I'll roll with it.
I really hope synthetic meat takes off, I'd gladly pay a premium for it out of principle.
