Clean meat — real meat made from animal cells without animal slaughter — and social solutions informed by breakthroughs and historical successes will eventually allow for an ethical and efficient food system where slaughterhouses are obsolete. “Many books and articles have documented how animal agriculture devastates public health, the environment, and animal welfare. Experts predict that the future of food is vegan. But readers and listeners are left with one burning question: How do we actually get from here to there?” I’m a social scientist currently working on my first book, “The End of Animal Farming.” I sometimes write articles in outlets such as in Huffington Post and Vox, and I’ve given talks in 15 different countries on the topics of effective altruism, animal protection, and food ethics. I’m the Research Director at Sentience Institute, a nonprofit, effective altruism think tank launched in June 2017 focused on expanding humanity’s moral circle. We’re not currently hiring, but I’m always excited to explore new research collaborations. I live in Brooklyn with my partner Kelly, our dog Apollo, and our two chickens Snow and Dualla, who were rescued from battery cage farms. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    We need more plant-based alternatives, or at least cruelty-free companies in Japan,,

    Has this been marketed to the farmers though? That is where the shift really needs to happen IMHO.

    There is just this one thing that kind of bothers me about talks like this… They use "I know deep down you want to be this person that doesn't hurt animals" sentences like facts. To me that's either one personal view of humanity among many others or a specific psychosocial way of argument because I think "deep down" everyone wants to see him- or herself as a good person so we might follow the moral that is popular. people did a lot of things through history to see themselves as good people by their moral standards.
    In general I wouldn't call this a bad thing but when it comes to talks about altruism I hear this kind of argument a lot… "I know you wanna be truly this or that kind of person." cut this part out and I really enjoy your talks. Humanity is probably too complicated to be put in a box like this and using it to convince someone doesn't seem right to me

    Here me out people. I dont think that eating animals is bad. We are omnivores by nature. I think problem is the industrialization of it. My grandpa lives in a farm. He gets sad when has to kill the animals he took care of for so long. There is humanity in the way he gets his food. Its just a way of life for many people even if they dont like it.

    Thank you for adding a positive slant on the future of activism. I’m also a preachy vegan and your video gave me a new perspective.
