About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Climate and Cruelty Revisited

A fair number of stories have mentioned meat and climate change lately.

Here is a typical one that talks about what diet you should eat for the climate. Three days, nine meals. 1 serving of fish, one serving of eggs, one serving of beef, four servings of chicken. Only one meal of the nine doesn't have animal products included (one breakfast).

Yet another reason to hold back on sharing stories that sound good to us. Whenever beef is in a story, chicken will be the real world choice, no matter what we say.
