My talk, “”Food, Ethics, Politics: The View from 2022,” will be in the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, Maeder Hall, Room 002. This event is part of the University Center for Human Values (UCHV) Conferences, Workshops & Special Events. To register to attend, click here.
Weekend reading: food and climate change
I recently ran across this useful website: Climate Change Resources, with live links to each of these sections.
But it also has a general section on the impact of food production and consumption, with ideas about what to think about:
- Eating food that is locally grown and sustainably raised
Eating less meat which can have a significant impact on deforestation
- Reducing foods with palm oil can again impact deforestation
Being attentive to food waste
Thinking a bit more about fish?
It also links to the World Resources Institute’s How to sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050, in 21 charts.
This, in turn comes from a WRI report, Creating a Sustainable Food Future: A Menu of Solutions to Feed Nearly 10 Billion People by 2050.
We have plenty of work to do. And here are plenty of ideas about where to start.
