No Simple Solution to Livestock and Climate Change - Article Guide

No Simple Solution to Livestock and Climate Change - Article Guide

"Simply reducing livestock farming in developing countries will neither cut emissions nor benefit the poor, says livestock expert Carlos Seré." This article (included with this resource as a PDF) discusses the issue of climate change and animal agriculture from a non-vegan point of view. The author attempts to bring up points about agriculture and its impact on developing nations as a more complex issue. Thus, requiring a "Third Way" aside from factory farming or simple meat elimination as solutions to this global problem. 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 and researching what a "third way" could look like. 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. The Impact of Global Meat Production- Article and Worksheet 4. Meat and the Environment - Article and Reading Guide Thanks for looking!
