Ten years ago, Chris Schlottmann '02 started assembling a course on ethics and food for New York University’s Department of Environmental Studies. He quickly realized that most of the environmental impacts of agriculture—particularly industrial agriculture—come from farmed or harvested animals. Those revelations led to the development of his new book, Food, Animals, and the Environment: An Ethical Approach. Photo by Samuel Stuart Hollenshead/NYU Photo Bureau.
