Manure Happens: The Consequences of Feeding Seven Billion Carnivores
Presented by Dr. Eric Davidson

Humans have profoundly altered the global nitrogen cycle in an effort to feed 7 billion people. Dr. Davidson will discuss how food and energy production from agriculture, combined with industrial and energy sources, have more than doubled the amount of nitrogen circulating annually on land and how this has caused widespread effects on ecosystems, biodiversity, human health, and climate. Effective solutions for reducing nitrogen losses from agriculture to water resources exist, so what political and economic impediments to their adoption remain?
