About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Stark Numbers

Saw this online -- a very stark representation of the reality is of the average animal consumption:

If the average person in the US were to stop eating chickens (even if they replaced that spot in their diet with equal amounts of pig and cow flesh) they would move from eating 24.4 farmed land animals a year to 1.9 animals a year. Were they so bold as to drop turkey as well it would move down to 0.9 farmed land animals. From over two dozen to less than one animal a year!
