After reading the enclosed article from National Geographic, entitled “Eating Meat has ‘dire’ consequences for the planet,” create a thread in the discussion board and discuss the following questions:
1. According to the article, what are the risks to worldwide meat consumption? What evidence is offered to support these statements in the article?
2. Assuming that the risks discussed in the article are likely, take a position on the ethics of stopping worldwide meat consumption. Students whose last name begins with the letters A-M will take the position that we have an ethical obligation to stop eating meat, while students whose last name begins with the letters N-Z will take the position that we do not have an ethical obligation to do so. All students should support their arguments by using an ethics perspective discussed in the course materials and pre-recorded lecture for this week.
3. Once you have submitted your responses, read and respond to at least two other student posts in this discussion board. All submissions should be at least 250 words, including responses to fellow students.
