National Vegetarian Museum: How Does Your Diet Impact the Environment?

Thursday, August 17, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Do you know how our human diets affect water use, land use and climate change?

Susan Lincke, PhD, a 20-year vegetarian/vegan, environomentalist and an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin- Parkside, will explain why  growing vegetables is much more environmentally efficient than raising meat. Most of the wheat and corn grown in the Midwest (70 to 80%) is grown to feed livestock, not humans.
