Robots Take Over Japanese Farmland

Categories: Edible News

EDIBLE NEWSNovwhoknows.jpg
Well, either the future or the robopocalypse is upon us: Japanese officials have just announced that they plan on opening a robot-run farm in the tsunami disaster zone, The Telegraph reports.

The Ministry of Agriculture's experimental project involves unmanned tractors, which will be programmed to work a 600-acre tract of cropland in a tsunami-ravaged area of the country. The crops will include rice, beans, fruits, and veggies.

Farmer robots will box this produce -- and then they will probably rebel against their human creators and enslave them, as those pesky cyborgs are wont to do (see: Terminator; I, Robot; The Matrix).

The robots will also recycle all of the carbon dioxide they and other farm machines produce, according to the paper. These emissions, in fact, will be used to fertilize the crops.

So, if the robots do carryout a bloody and brutal world takeover, at least it will be carbon neutral.

In what way are they able to "recycle" the CO2? The plant life of this planet already do that. Get a science book to the general public asap. More CO2 means more oxygen!! How can people swallow the tripe the state funded media shovels down their throats? Question the information!!! Look up the facts from numerous sources. And, always use your brain for processing, not just storage.

p.s. I like how you cannot post a comment here anonymously. One has to enter their email; can you say "govt tracking"?. Tyranny is so obvious now that people don't even react

Good Murrow & Good Luck!

Since these farms will (allegedly) take a waste product (carbon dioxide) and turn it into something useful (fertilizer), they'll be recycling — your derisive quotation marks are not called for. And given that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has long been increasing, the removal of carbon dioxide can't be left to plant life alone.

The Village Voice and The Telegraph (which this blog post cites) are not state-funded media.

I don't submit any of my own e-mail addresses when I post a comment on a Village Voice Media blog.

To sum up: You're a dumbass. Good day!
