Tackling the Factory Farming Problem

Patrick O. Brown, a Stanford University biochemist, says animal farming is an ecological disaster given that it contributes to 9% of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions, 37% of human-caused methane (most of it emanating from the animals' digestive systems) and 65% of human-caused nitrous oxide, according to the Food & Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Brown is planning to take 18 months off to work out economic models with colleagues; illustrating ways that animal farming is likely to become onerously expensive. Then, he'll work with famous chefs and food researchers on tastier vegetarian dishes. He says, "If you're a big food producer now, this is absolutely inevitable," ... "You'd better start thinking ahead. You'd better seriously start investing and trying to find alternatives in order to stay alive."
