In an interview that has angered cattle ranchers and beef lovers alike, Bill Gates stated that he wants everyone who lives in “rich” countries to eat only synthetic beef.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who lives in Colorado cattle ranching country, had a reply.
Read the quote from Gates, see Boebert’s tweeted reply, and share your thoughts in the comment section. Do you agree with Gates or Boebert?
“I don’t think the poorest 80 countries will be eating synthetic meat. I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand,” Gates told MIT Technology Review.
