The Next Global Agricultural Revolution | Bruce Friedrich | EAGxBoston 22
Show Notes

Good Food Institute founder and CEO Bruce Friedrich explains GFI’s thesis that our industrial meat production system is a threat to humanity that is even more dangerous than fossil fuel production, with serious jeopardy to humanity across climate change, biodiversity loss, food security, antibiotic resistance, pandemic risk, and more. All forecasts by agricultural economists indicate that meat consumption is going to rise inexorably, by between 70 and more than 100 percent by 2050. We are not going to convince consumers to change their diets, much like we are not going to convince the world to consume less energy or drive less. So, we need to remake meat.
