The Ethical and Environmental Impacts of Eating Animals
For the latest discussion on veganism, Gene Baur, cofounder of Farm Sanctuary, brings his expertise about animal cruelty to the table, while UW's Kathryn Gillespie will (hopefully) offer some insight on the controversial animal research lab cropping up on her campus.
They'll discuss how eating meat impacts animals, how conscious consumerism leads to happiness and health, and steps we can take toward eating more responsibly.
The Ethical and Environmental Impacts of Eating Animals, Fri, May 8, 7:30pm, Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Ave, $5
UW Science Now Double Feature
McCreight cracks open what makes us human, comparing the DNA of humans to chimpanzees, monkeys, and lemurs (if you forgot what you learned in your college biology series, this will be a good one to attend). Afterward, Mlodinow, author of The Upright Thinkers, will trace the history of human thought, arguing that the way we think has just as much influence on science as science does on human thinking (kind of meta).
Make sure to buy a ticket for each segment, at $5 each.
