Our best herbicide option may some day be small drones that fly through the fields and ID sprouting weeds and take them out (maybe using tiny scissors) :lol: that's pretty much the only 100% "chemical" free option.

I think our biggest obstacle is differentiating plants at the sprouting state. Not sure we'll achieve that in three years. Computer learning may be good, but I can't tell most plants apart until they start developing adult leaves.

If you don't want to derail threads, then you need to think more carefully about what you post and where, sykkelmannen.

I used it as an example to present the other point of view, just like Jebus probably anticipated someone would. Have no intention to derail this thread.
You clearly did, but now you don't want to have to back up your claim. You're not stupid enough to think that wouldn't raise eyebrows are you?
Making absurd and inflammatory anti-science conspiracy theory claims like 'the moon landing was a hoax' requires substantiation.

Now you're trying to derail this one too.

First of all, this isn't a thread, this is a collection of stupid quotes. Yours fits in just perfect. Yes, it's a cheap shot. Why don't you correct the mistake?

Second of all, derailing would be exactly to explain my case when it had nothing to do with Jebus' thread, effectively hijacking it. It was the first example that came to mind, which I needed to argue the point.

Now you force me to take part in your damage control sliding this forum, good job! If you don't want to be quoted here, correct your mistake. It's still there. You never corrected.

Maybe I will start a thread. Would you like me to?

I would love to have a moderator's permission before I'm accused of spamming the forum with "undesired conspiracy theories" and banned. I know how "popular" this is on open-registration forums.

I don't think I like your tone.
This forum is open for discussion, but that doesn't mean someone won't criticize you and your beliefs. I don't think we ban members just because they believe in conspiracy theories, rather than if someone just came, preached said theories, and not properly respond to criticism.
Don't be such a baby.

I just read in an article about the end of factory farming that lab-grown "meat promises to be more ethical than eating vegetables". It then links to this article: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/bmvg8m/why-eating-lab-grown-meat-will-be-more-ethical-than-eating-a-vegetable

Expectation: lab-grown meat said to require less agricultural inputs and less energy and pollution to produce than vegetables.
Reality: "Even plants, he says, show response to stimuli that are likely to harm or kill them. The cow muscle cells used to make Steak chips do not."

I expected to learn about the environmental footprint of lab-grown meat compared to vegetables, I instead found plant sentience pseudoscience. FACEPALM
Appeal to nature: the strange belief that what is perceived as "natural" is necessarily safer, more effective or morally superior compared to what isn't.
