The Planet is What You Eat – The Environmental Impact of Meat Industry with Isaac Emery from Good Food Institute
Does a one dollar fast-food hamburger really cost a dollar? Our food choices impact everything, from our personal wellbeing to global poverty. Join us for a thought provoking talk with Dr. Isaac Emery from Good Food Institute (GFI) about the planetary consequences of our factory-farmed meat industry. We will discuss the environmental impact of mass-produced meat, why a plant-based diet is healthier for the planet and you, and how you can make better choices when you purchase meat.
Presenter: Dr. Isaac Emery
Dr. Isaac Emery of Good Food Institute (GFI) studies the significant environmental and human health impacts of industrial animal agriculture and evaluates the reduced impact of a plant-based diet and the benefits of choosing to purchase sustainably produced meat. He holds a B.A. in biochemistry, biophysics, and molecular biology from Whitman College and a Ph.D. in agricultural and biological engineering from Purdue University. Learn more about Isaac here.
