From Rachael Metz ’16:
Interested in the relationship between food and the environment?
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is the primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.
Climate Ambassadors is putting on a film screening of Cowspiracy, a new documentary about the animal agriculture industry and its relation to climate change and other environmental problems. This is an issue over which we as individuals DO have control, and as a campus, we can make a difference, every time we sit down to eat.
We will have a FREE (!!!!) dinner beforehand catered by Tandoor. Dinner will start at 6 PM and the film will start at 6:30.
Time: 6-8 PM
Place: Downey House 113
