Meatonomics

David Robinson Simon, Author, Meatonomics: How the Rigged Economics of Meat and Dairy Make You Consume Too Much – and How to Eat Better, Live Longer, and Spend Smarter

Tim Koopman, President, California Cattlemen’s Association

Everything we eat has a climate impact. From livestock production to chemical agriculture, our choices lead to different carbon footprints. Meatonomics is the first book to add up the huge externalized costs the animal food system imposes on taxpayers, animals and the environment, finding they total about $414 billion annually. If producers were forced to internalize hidden costs, its author says, a $4 Big Mac would cost about $11. How will changing weather patterns impact the world’s food supply? How can the economics of food affect carbon footprints? Join us for a conversation with Meatonomics author David Robinson Simon and other experts on the future of eating in an era of climate change.
