Usually Ships in 1 to 4 DaysLisa Kemmerer’s Eating Earth explores the environmental effects of animal agriculture, fishing, and hunting and exposes critical common ground between earth and animal advocacy. Eating Earth offers a concise examination of the environmental effects of dietary choice. Animal Agriculture is examined in the first chapter, discussing topics like greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, manure and dead zones, freshwater depletion and deforestation, predator control, land use, and the ranching industries public lands subsidies. img style=”float: right;” src=”https://www.greenwomanstore.com/media/Books/PCW/BookCovers/Eco-Feminism/lisa-kemmerer-feeding-elephant.jpg” alt=”Lisa Kemmerer feeding an elephant” width=”450″ />Examining whether or not the consumption of fish is healthy, chapter two outlines morally relevant aspects of fish physiology, scrutinizing the fishing industry. She documents the “silent collapse” of ocean ecosystems and calls attention to the indiscriminate nature of hooks, nets, and the problem of bycatch, the incidental capture of non-target species, and what this practice means for endangered species and fragile seascapes. Chapter three outlines the historic link between the U.S. Government, wildlife management, and hunters. Lisa systematically unravels common beliefs about sport hunting, such as the belief that hunters are essential to wildlife conservation, that contemporary hunting qualifies as a tradition, and that hunting is merciful, economical, or rooted in “fair chase.” At the end of each chapter, Lisa Kemmerer examines possible solutions to problems presented, such as sustainable meats, organic and local, grass fed, aquaculture, new fishing technologies, and enhanced regulations. With wry humor, she presents the many reasons why dietary choice ought to be front and center for environmentalists. Her writing is clear and straightforward, and includes nearly 80 graphs and summary slides.
