The Ethics of Eating Meat on a Small Planet 

When: Mon., Oct. 29, 6:30 p.m. 2018
Price: Free
The number is pretty staggering: More than 87 billion animals are raised on Earth each year just to feed us. How will that number grow and its impacts be felt, then, as the human population pushes 9 billion people by the middle of the 21st century? What about the impacts on our climate? This complicated issue is explored by Gonzaga University professor and philosopher Brian G. Henning during an upcoming discussion hosted by Humanities Washington and the Spokane Public Library. We already know animal-based agriculture is a leading polluter and contributor to climate change, but meat-heavy diets might also be making us sick. Find out more, and some possible alternatives to the current model, at this insightful conversation, which is perhaps more timely than originally intended after the recent release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest climate report.
