Skip to comments.Scientists race to develop farm animals to survive climate change

When a team of researchers from the University of Delaware traveled to Africa two years ago to search for exemplary chickens, they weren't looking for plump thighs or delicious eggs.
They were seeking out birds that could survive a hotter planet.
The researchers were in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can stand up to the hazards of global warming.

Who would have imagined?
The jokes write themselves.
I’ve asserted before, if we are actually going to experience cooling, GMO is going to be critical to saving our food supply.
The irony is if they believe in climate change and believe in evolution, the chickens should adapt by themselves.
Survive climate change?!? What?!? With all that extra food and water around?!?
Because nothing survived the ice age or the medieval warm period!
Yes, can you say massively huge government grants? Academics in our universities are some of the biggest whores on this planet.
They’ll do a study for you, research for you, all you need do is tell them the desired outcome/conclusion.
People who participated in this scam should be arrested and tried. Certainly they’re as guilty of fraud as Bernie Madoff. Any time I’m reading something and the author mentions climate change or global warming, even in fiction or science fiction, the book hits the wall and he’s off my reading list.
First of all, they only live about a year....maybe two. They are adapted to whatever they’re born into.
This is the dumbest crap I have ever heard.
Life has been adapting to natural change on earth for 3 1/2 billion years but now liberals know that they can do it better.
And the chicken they’re trying to develop will only live 7-8 weeks.
Why does everyone totally ignore the good side to global warming. More farmable land. Vineyards in England!! I could put tomatoes in in April. (Except we’ve had the coldest Spring in CT since 1911!!)
I know, that doesn’t fit with the scams.
In the end new Gorebull Warming approved farm animal will bear an uncanny resemblance to the common Hog.
I once read a story about a man who happened upon a village where the inhabitants were all in a tizzy because, seeing the moon’s reflection in a pond, they believed that it had fallen from the sky, and were racking their brains trying to figure out how to get it out of the pond and back in its proper place. That’s what this lunacy reminds me of.
