Wild Ideas

Posted by BNoujaimBaldwin on 30 Aug 2009 at 04:25 GMT

Wild ideas are sometimes the best. And with cows having mental problems, pigs and chickens having the flu and fish being weighed down by metal you'd wonder why this idea isn't seen as reasonable.

What I would wonder though is the impact on the local rather then the global. What about people in small and poor communities who rely on their couple of chickens and single pig/cow/goat for their nutrition and economic wellbeing? Your animal substitution must be able to be grown in smallholdings and in many different climates; arid, temperate, tropical and arctic.

If you could start with the local and improve their health and in someway their small economic status, then count me in, I’ll be part of the revolution.
