The Ethics of Eating Meat on a Small Planet

Research is increasingly suggesting that the mass production and consumption of animals is a primary reason why many humans are hungry, fat, or sick; and that eating animals is a leading cause of the depletion and pollution of waterways, the degradation and deforestation of the land, the extinction of species, and the warming of the planet. Is sustainable animal agriculture possible? Join a conversation with philosopher Brian G Henning that explores the costs of and possible alternatives to industrial livestock production on our small planet.
