The soothing cadence of mastication, farts, belches, and showers of piss never ceases from dusk till dawn
– Simon Fairlie
I’m working my way through the excellent book, Meat: A Benign Extravagance by Simon Fairlie. It’s a fascinating deep dive into the world of sustainability, food security, and social and environmental justice, centered on the question on whether eating meat is good, bad or something in between. But it also serves as an introduction to the concepts that frame the debate. Cue global greenhouse gases.
