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. Learn more at
