Because of studies like these: https://phys.org/news/2018-07-meat-dairy-industry-track-surpass.html I think the most important thing I can do with my life is to promote plant-based diets for environmental reasons. No matter what my personal feelings might be about animal rights or my ethical concerns, I know I absolutely MUST emphasize the environmental aspect to get more people to stop eating meat at the very least. My problem is this: I want to apply to grad school and have talked to an advisor about forming my Masters project through working with real-world organizations to educate and promote plant-based diets for environmental reasons (my Bachelors will be in Enviro Sci, the grad program is called Environment and Community and focuses on Social Science rather than hard science and includes sustainable food systems as a concentration option.) BUT here I am one semester away from graduating, trying to study for finals and my eye is literally twitching right now. I don't know if I can handle grad school without having a nervous breakdown. I'm trying to decide if I should just graduate and go into direct activism, or if I should at least try the grad school option in the hopes that I would reach more people and people in enviro sci would see me as more "credible."
