Bittman’s Chris Hayes Outtakes

Some notes from Bittman following his must-see appearance this week on MSNBC. I love this:

But if a product means death for you or your neighbor or the environment, we simply shouldn’t be producing it. If people lose their jobs as a result, I’m sympathetic, but we can’t be supporting a process that poisons our citizenry.

Beautifully said. The meat industry’s problem is that this is such a commonsense and important point—and it can’t be refuted without making a patently bad faith argument. Link.
