Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Prof. Matthew Liao holds the Arthur Zitrin Chair of Bioethics as well as the Directorship for the Center for Bioethics at New York University.
He was Deputy Director and James Martin Senior Research Fellow in the Program on the Ethics of the New Biosciences in the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University. He was the Harold T. Shapiro Research Fellow in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University in 2003–2004, and a Greenwall Research Fellow at Johns Hopkins University and a Visiting Researcher at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University from 2004–2006.
In May 2007, he founded Ethics Etc, a group blog for discussing contemporary philosophical issues in ethics and related areas. He is interested in a wide range of issues including ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, moral psychology, and bioethics.
In this discussion, Tro and Matthew talk about the diverse human activities which negatively impact the environment, whether or not the raising and consumption of livestock is one of those activities, which human behaviors contribute the most to human-caused damage to the environment, and the ethics of human engineering as a solution to environmental damage.
