Making a Change in Appetite
The golden rule is to treat someone the way you would want to be treated, but should this rule
only apply to people? Technological advances has enabled people to manipulate nature for their
benefit, the only question is to what degree should people manipulate nature. Systematic animal

near future. Initially farmers would use the animals droppings as fertilizer for their crops,
however since most animal farming is done on an extremely dense scale there is not enough land
to absorb all of the excrement. The current answers to managing the waste is not environmentally
sustainable either, attempting...
