Thoughts on this article about food sources in 20 years?

I'm totally fine eating everything on the list! I'm sure many of you are as well, but my interest is in how you think we (Paleo eaters) can help foster a sustainable food culture outside of our own sphere of influence.

Get deep on this one, folks.

EDIT: I'm not cool with lab-created anything, hence the beef would be off the list. Minor overlook on my part!

As a Utah native, I have seen this a lot. It doesn't make any sense to me either. (Add it to the list of things done in Utah that make no sense.)

I read that the other day, and was surprised that they didn't mention rodents as a good protein source. Mice, rabbits, guinea pigs...have heard that rats are not a good choice as they frequent dirty areas like sewers and dumpsters.

If anything, it sounds sort of terrifying. Just another set of compounds to be ground up, processed and chemically altered only to be reassembled into industrial pseudo food. And, like almost all prior attempts at the same thing, we'll be shocked when the wholesale introduction of an evolutionarily novel food has unforeseen health outcomes.

I'd much rather see clones of Polyface Farms around every town. Let's convert all the golf courses, wheat/soy/corn fields and CAFOs into these.

I'm reminded of this article: "Vertical Farms and Lab-Grown Meat: Have We Lost Our Minds?" http://hipcrime.blogspot.com/2012/06/vertical-farms-and-lab-grown-meat-have.html

I'm also reminded of my recent drive across Utah and seeing cattle in a feedlot standing on mountains of shit, shit that had to be composted and stored under plastic tarps weighed down with old tires. Meanwhile, there's a hay field on the other side of the freeway. Why not just let the cattle loose in the hay field and save the step of baling it and driving it across the freeway and then moving the shit back to the hay field. Modern people seriously have lost their minds.

As far as lab beef goes, id rather not be one that as a consumer is responsible for the annihilation of species currently given land and life from farming. Specially if the lab grown stuff is fat free..

Do the insects have fat BTW?
