Going Green Going To Far

Save the Planet, we have all heard this slogan preached to us day after day to the point most of us cringe when we hear it. If you do not buy into the mass hysteria that our earth is about to implode, you are a scumbag earth hating reject republican. Drive a car that does not have the word Hybrid on it or that plugs into a wall, you hate your fellow man. Kill a deer, you are a murderer. This is the world we live in. A world where millions upon millions believe in non scientific claims that our world will soon burst into a ball of flame or sink under the weight of the massive floods or become a huge chunk of ice or………well you get the point.

I firmly believe in conservation and become disgusted and angry when I see stupid abuse of the resources we have been blessed with. I have always enjoyed hunting and want to see my son have the same opportunities that I was able to have. I want him to be able to purchase his own plot of clean land one day, but at the same time I do not want him to be scared to breathe should he kill some useless algae somewhere on the planet. I want him to respect the life of others, even the animal life so that one day I do not read about him in the paper after being caught in a Michael Vick moment. But I also teach him that while our planet and all its inhabitants are part of our responsibilities to the God who created it for our pleasure, I do not want him to give up his own mind in order to buy into the nonsense of the wacko left.

Why do I want him to think and use the brain God gave him, because I do not want to see him do what this very intelligent man has done. There is a point where advocacy turns into stupidity and this scientist has long crossed the line.

Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, has developed steaks based on proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage approached the scientist because of an overabundance of sewage mud. They asked him to explore the possible uses of the sewage and Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein because of all the bacteria.

The researchers then extracted those proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer and put it in an exploder which created the artificial steak. The “meat” is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.

Inhabitat notes that “the meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals.” Livestock also consume huge amounts of resources and space in efforts to feed ourselves as well as the controversy over cruelty to animals. Ikeda’s recycled poop burger would reduce waste and emissions, not to mention obliterating Dante’s circle for gluttons.

Yes you read that right, it was not a typo. Soon all of us earth killing pooping humans will be able to slather Heinz 57 sauce all over a steak made from the very stuff we rush to flush down our glorious ceramic thrones. Now instead of our waste going to waste, someone will be there to collect our smelly specimen so that it can be transformed into a steak fit for the grill. I guess this is where we have been heading as someone had to realize normal human body functions could not be safe for mother earth and had to be recycled, but I am sorry, no person, animal, or planet is worth me consuming my own poo much less yours no matter they spices the put in it. This is a prime example of hysteria taken way too far and I for one will not be lining up to save the planet on this one.
