Cows, Climate and Culture Wars: Putting Bad Policy Out to Pasture [Series 2/3]
« There’s growing concern among scientists and the public about the environmental cost of the United States’ outsized appetite for beef. But there’s also a fierce political backlash against the suggestion that we reduce our beef consumption. These dynamics have everyone — from federal policymakers to local producers and big corporations — scrambling to broadcast new climate commitments on beef production, such as net-zero pledges.
In this conversation, food and climate experts will break down the climate science of beef and explore which solutions are most effective — and most needed — in climate policy and commitments.
What’s the role of grass-fed and so-called regenerative beef in a climate-friendly food system? Where are the gaps in our ability to reduce climate emissions, and what are the limits and potentials of carbon sequestration, methane capture, carbon markets, consumer awareness and industry oversight?
We’ll also discuss how culture wars shape the way we talk about, think about, study, and address climate impacts in beef production — and whether voluntary benchmarks can work under these conditions.
Join the Center for Biological Diversity on April 7, 2022, at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET for a discussion on climate solutions to the environmental issues with beef production and consumption.
Note: This webinar is the first of three in the series, « Grazing the Wild: Facts and Fiction about Grass-fed Beef. » Check out the others for additional topics from a variety of panelists.
