Meat and the Environment - Article and Reading Guide

Meat and the Environment - Article and Reading Guide

" Meat and the Environment. Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of land, food, energy, and water and causes immense animal suffering. A staggering 51 percent or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture, according to a report published by the Worldwatch Institute." Have students read the included article by PETA (included as a PDF) and fill out the reflective reading guide to consider the author's point of view on the effects of raising meat on the environment. The article is written to attempt to persuade readers to consider taking the 30 day vegan challenge. The author does a nice job of making convincing statements and supporting them, as a means to validate their viewpoint. The reading guide is in PDF, Word and a fillable Word form. This way you can print the handout for students to write on or share it for them to easily fill out on their devices as a Word form. Afterwards you can reflect on the article as a class or consider writing a counter argument from the non-vegan point of view. Should take about 25-30 minutes This article pairs well with the following other resources of mine: 1. COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret 2. Regenerative Agriculture -- A Solution to Climate Change 3. No Simple Solution to Livestock and Climate Change - Article Guide 4.
