I love beef. Hamburgers, steaks, corned beef, beef rendang, pastrami, meatballs... I could just keep going.
Other meats too: lamb, chicken, pork. Love 'em all.
But I also love living on this planet, and would like this planet to stay beautiful, ecologically diverse and healthy forever.
So I'm making some small changes for myself and the planet.
It's becoming clear to me that our eating habits make up are a large proportion of our impact on the Earth. As a top predator on the food chain, our food choices effect every other creature down the line, from livestock close to home, to wildlife in Africa, to fish in the open ocean. One scientist even suggests that eating less beef would have a more positive impact on the environment than not driving a car.
