Analysis finds the carbon footprint of cultivated meat is likely to be higher than beef if current production methods are scaled up because they are still highly energy-intensive

I live in a “high desert” environment – that means mountains and valleys at 3,000 feet elevation or higher. Much of the area, especially the valleys, is rocky soil with modest annual rain that grows grass and sagebrush. Consequently, the land area is used to grow hay in some places (where possible), or to graze cattle. The land does not support growing vegetables. Cattle convert grass into edible calories for humans. If we do away with cattle (and other hooved animals), then we do away with this food resource too. Something to think about.
