Finally a podcast states the dangers a meat filled lifestyle with experts on the subjects and its affects on our environment. Love informitave speakers! This really shows some good facts. Maybe more people would stop eating meat if they realized where our environment is headed. Listen to these with an open mind. Don't just ignore it because the idea seems unpopular. This is a really serious matter.

Rank #3: Rae Sikora interviews Dr. Melanie Joy about carnism Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more
In this podcast, Rae Sikora interviews Dr. Melanie Joy about her new book "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism." Carnism is the word Dr. Joy uses to describe the widespread, invisible belief system, or ideology, that conditions us to eat some animals but not others. Dr. Joy argues that when eating meat isn't a necessity for survival, it's a choice, and choices always stem from beliefs. But carnism, unlike vegetarianism, has remained unnamed and therefore invisible. "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows" explains, in plain language, the way carnism impacts our society and our minds, and helps both vegetarians and meat eaters become more informed and empowered, as consumers and citizens.

More information on Dr. Joy and her work can be found at www.melaniejoy.org and at www.carnism.com.

In this 20-minute podcast, Mike Hudak (mike_hudak@yahoo.com) suggests that a campaign to persuade the American people to drop their support of the federal grazing program should be primarily based on aesthetics rather than on ecology or economics. Hudak draws upon writings of American naturalist John Muir along with interviews from his book Western Turf Wars: The Politics of Public Lands Ranching (http://westernturfwars.com) as examples for how to make the case for removing ranching from public lands.

Well we saw a bit of history two podcasts ago from 1994 and then on the last podcast we moved to 2004 and now let's again examine a 2010 article "Meals of Mass Destruction: Shrimp" by Wendy Gordon from the Huffington Post on how much of a change Environmentalists are making in bringing this important topic to the attention of a Seafood eating world. I have only read the parts of the article that deal with the Environmental Destruction since I'm not an advocate for any sort of Sustainable Animal Farming.
