Reducing Greenhouse Gas Footprints
Peter Singer Keynotes - Australian-born Peter Singer is a Professor of Philosophy who has given speeches on public ethics...
Singer explains that he has given up eating meat for the past 30 years because meat production produces a considerable amount of greenhouse gas emissions. He suggests that everyone scale back their meat intake if possible to try and reduce the impact that meat production has on the environment. Singer also discusses donations that he makes to environmentally focused charities. He says that one percent of someone's income is an extremely reasonable amount to donate. While he has increased the percentage of his own donations over the years, he acknowledges that that won't work for everyone.
