Talking Turkey for Christmas - 17/11/2006
 
"A global revulsion at eating flesh of all kinds" would see a future when "we would all become vegetarians" predicts Dr Daniel Pauly, director of the Fisheries Centre at the University of British Columbia.
"A global revulsion at eating flesh of all kinds" would see a future when "we would all become vegetarians" predicts Dr Daniel Pauly, director of the Fisheries Centre at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, who is among a selection of "brilliant minds", tempted by the New Scientist (18/11/06) to forecast the next 50 years in a 50th Anniversary Special 1956-2006.

He explains: "In the light of the time span considered here I think the most important development for the oceans would be a device that could detect, amplify, and transmit to us the emotions and "thoughts" of animals in such a form as to evoke analogous emotions and thoughts in human brains. This would first work with primates, then mammals in general, then the other vertebrates, including fish."

Well, Dr Doolittle has started much to do.
