Someone passionate about improving animal welfare told me that in the short-term, cultured meat might be a bad thing, because some people think:
Cell-based meat is coming soon, so the problem of factory farming would soon be solved. Thus, it is OK for me to eat meat right now.
Is there any study/survey that tried to assess how many people follow this reasoning?
(I am not asking whether this reasoning for eating meat makes sense (personally, I think it doesn’t), only whether it is common.)
