Livestock Grazing in the West–A full accounting of costs

Attached is a Zoom talk I gave to the Massachusetts Sierra Club on the ecological costs of livestock grazing in the West, but I also provide evidence that livestock production has a serious global impact.

    What an excellent treatment of this issue, George. I am grateful for all the work you’ve done to acquire this knowledge and your willingness to share it. I might be teaching Investigative Writing this summer and I’d like to put this presentation in conversation with an ag proponent. How would they respond to your arguments? What would they say? I think we’d all be very interested to find out. (When we let the facts speak for themselves, what are we left with?) If you know of anyone who might fit the bill, please advise.
