Meat and dairy production, along with associated activities, take up an astounding 30% of the Earth’s surface and 80% of all agricultural land in the United States. And meat production is a massive source of air and water pollution. This week’s conversation will discuss our work to protect human health and the environment from the ravages of this powerful industry. We’ll talk about COVID-19 and slaughterhouses, Trump’s latest policies, the dangers of meat production for wildlife and workers, personal dietary choices and even the important rise of meatless burgers. The presentation will include senior attorney and factory farm litigator Hannah Connor, population and sustainability director Stephanie Feldstein and environmental health director Lori Ann Burd. We’re excited to bring these weekly Saving Life on Earth conversations to wherever you are. Just because we’re almost all home-bound doesn’t mean that we can’t dive into our passion for saving wildlife. Each week, the Center will convene a small team of experts to discuss some of the more important topics of our times. There will also be a chance to answer your questions. ----YOUR UNIQUE REGISTRATION LINK WILL BE EMAILED TO YOU FROM ZOOM. THIS WILL BE THE LINK YOU USE TO JOIN THE CALL.
