Historically, climate change has primarily been framed as a problem driven by fossil fuels. While that is true, this framing misses the substantial role that food and agriculture play in fueling the climate emergency, in particular the production and consumption of animal products. This webinar addresses this gap by examining the interplay between animal agriculture and climate change, underscoring the need to address industrial animal agriculture both because of the egregious ethical violations against animals as well as the climate implications of this industry.
