The Case for Sustainable Meat ProductionBook - 2014
Nicolette Hahn Niman dispels popular myths about how eating beef is bad for our bodies and planet. Grounded in empirical scientific data and with living examples from around the world, Hahn Niman builds a comprehensive argument that cattle can help build carbon-sequestering soils to mitigate climate change, enhance biodiversity, prevent desertification, and provide invaluable nutrition. While no single book can definitively answer the thorny question of how to feed the earth's growing population, Defending Beef makes the case that, whatever the world's future food system looks like, cattle and beef can and must be part of the solution.--COVER.
