Eat Right: Save The Earth

December 17, 2007 | CUNY Lecture Series, LaGuardia Community College

For over thirty years, Peter Singer has been shaking his fist at the status quo with his books on the ethical treatment of animals and global warming. In 2007, the Australian native co-authored the bestseller, “The Ethics of What We Eat,” which details the environmental, economic and social impacts of the world’s dietary choices. Speaking at LaGuardia Community College’s “Save the Earth” series, Prof. Singer, currently the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, discusses how America could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by switching to a vegan diet and why the world’s richest nation should lead the charge in reforming environmental policy.
