Last Friday, The Journal from Queen’s University released a letter stressing meat’s contribution to climate change.
When you’re deciding whether or not to shell out an extra dollar to add bacon to your burger, you’re making a choice that affects more than just your wallet. You’re deciding whether or not to support a system that systematically destroys our ecosystems.
The letter was signed by Kathleen Houlahan Chayer, a fourth-year Environmental Science major and the Chair of Sustainability for the Society of Conservation Biology, Kingston Chapter.
On the same topic, read the report “Changing Climate, Changing Diets: Pathways to Lower Meat Consumption” from The Chatham House (November 2015).
