On March 24th, 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground in the Prince William Sound of Alaska. Roughly 11 million gallons of crude oil forever changed the pristine habitat of the sound. Immediate effects included mass mortalities of marine mammals and birds, crashed fisheries, and hundreds of workers out of jobs. 30 years later, impacts persist in the form of insidious lingering oil and fisheries which have yet to recover.
We all know that driving cars and keeping the lights on impacts our carbon footprint… but could our diet make even more of an impact?
