Plant-based meats are intended as a transition option much as "green" meats are hoped to be transition options. Ultimately, one hopes all types of factory farming will end and food resources will be plant based, replacing meat entirely, not "faking" it. This, until and unless we can find a workable solution to the carbon/methane crises, which, at the moment, is not on the horizon.

Sacrificing meat-eating is better than ending life as we know it.
