Several people have tried to convince me to become vegetarian before, but Eating Animals made me consider it more than anything else. The impact of the meat industry on climate change alone is scary enough to consider declining my desire for bacon. Jonathon Foer also discusses the possibility of eating dogs, because of the amount of dog meat thrown out every year. This idea is disgusting to me, but Foer makes a good point. If we can justify eating pigs, which are just as intelligent as dogs, how can we justify not eating dogs. This is something I have never contemplated before, and truly opened my eyes. He goes on to ask how we would defend ourselves if a species saw us as we saw fish. This is also terrifying, because I don’t have a good reason why they shouldn’t.

It is unclear how this change in Spring’s date will affect the species in these areas.
