We are denizens of a warming planet, and meat—beef in particular—accounts for nearly 60% of all greenhouse gases from food production. The health impacts of meat consumption are both global and personal: while lean meat has been shown to have some health benefits, processed meat is so harmful that the WHO ranks it alongside known carcinogens like tobacco and alcohol in its likelihood of causing cancer. And as individuals, we must grapple with our own cultural, religious, and ideological reasons both to eat meat and to abstain from it. So what has changed in our relationship to meat – and what needs to change?
Convening speakers whose perspectives are informed by religious ethics, environmental policy, critical animal studies, and the science of creating alternative meat, this event will consider the impacts of the meat industry and suggest alternatives for its future.
