It’s a fact — burgers are terrible for the environment.
And it’s not just that we’re killing the animals (although that’s definitely part of it). Feeding the animals, giving them antibiotics, and transporting the meat all lead to major resource consumption and disease-spreading. Altogether, raising livestock takes up roughly 30% of the world’s arable land and accounts for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions. With our population of 7.8 billion and counting, this shows no sign of slowing down.
I know: how can something that tastes so good be so bad?
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Believe it or not, rule-following machines can actually be pretty spontaneous.
I think we’ve all been in one of those group situations where there is a dreaded task that has to be done, but nobody wants to do it. Whether it’s breaking bad news or cleaning up after a project, somebody has to take one for the team.
Interested in engineering and biotechnology, looking to share my findings with others.
