Warren Kosar, senior paleontologist at the Museum of Natural History, remains deeply concerned about how this is affecting the nation’s Jurassic citizens. He writes, “How would people feel if our clothes were fabricated from cheap, human sweat? How would we feel if bargain basement blood was the currency used to gain economic advantages?
