Program Title: WINGS #28-16 Bring Back Bison
Description: Bringing back bison - like the ones seen at Standing Rock recently - and the prairie grasslands that sustain them - could sequester massive amounts of carbon and restore functional habitat for many other species, says Lierre Keith. A former vegan, she now sees herself as a being like other creatures part of the cycle of life and death, choosing to eat foods that contribute to building topsoil.
Host(s): Meghan Murphy
Featured Speakers/Guests: Lierre Keith is a writer, radical feminist, food activist and environmentalist. Her book The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability, targets agricultural monocropping and patriarchy as two of the most destructive and unsustainable forces of "civilization."
