Along the same lines, I think there is a human responsibility to figure out how to feed ourselves without inflicting mass harm on animals. One answer to that is one of pure self-regulation: stop eating meat and become a vegetarian or even a vegan. Another answer is to continue with progress and figure out how to grow meat in a lab.

Responsibility (Edit this file)

Some links here would be great. Off the top of my head Beyond Meat (http://beyondmeat.com) is working on some cool stuff, and this a16z podcast covers the subject as well (http://campfire-capital.com/food-and-beverages/a16z-podcast-clean-meat/)

No description provided.

Oh and Exo is doing some cool stuff too, although I tried their bars and wasn't that into it. https://exoprotein.com and https://www.forbes.com/sites/nataliesportelli/2016/03/07/exo-protein-raises-4m-in-first-ever-series-a-for-an-insect-food-startup/#3a648c8e77bf

Also, I know very little about food production but it seems like some really interesting stuff is happening with optimization via machine learning and data science. This article explores "Food Valley" (from a high level w pictures) where a lot of Dutch startups are apparently making great progress. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2017/09/holland-agriculture-sustainable-farming/

Just shared a link to Hampton Creek on the Urgency section, but it might be more relevant here. I also like this article because of the way they describe an OS level solution rather than a minor improvement: https://medium.com/the-os-fund/re-imagining-the-worlds-food-supply-daae58be9534
