Fun with calculators

It has struck me that we have to navigate between the following constraints:

  • setting aside a lot of potentially productive agricultural land for “nature” – i.e., not for human uses such as agriculture, livestock, and forestry
  • the equity issues of a world in which we can’t produce enough meat for everyone to consume everything they’d like to

Therefore I’ve provided this handy-dandy calculator to help you decide what meat consumption regime you think makes the most sense.

(function() { var qs,j,q,s,d=document, gi=d.getElementById,
ce=d.createElement, gt=d.getElementsByTagName,
id="calconic_", b="";
if(!,id)) {,"script");; j.type="text/javascript"; j.async=true;
j.src=b+"calconic.min.js";,"script")[0]; q.parentNode.insertBefore(j,q) }
