Recent events have demonstrated that human use of nonhuman animals contributes to pandemics, climate change, and other global threats which, in turn contribute to biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse, and nonhuman suffering. In his latest book, Jeff Sebo, co-author of Chimpanzee Rights and Food, Animals, and the Environment, claims that humans have a moral responsibility to include animals in global health and environmental policy. He argues that we should reduce our use of animals as part of our pandemic and climate change mitigation efforts and increase our support for animals as part of our adaptation efforts. He calls for reducing support for factory farming, deforestation, and the wildlife trade; increasing support for humane, healthful, and sustainable alternatives; and for considering human and nonhuman needs holistically. Saving Animals, Saving Ourselves, is both a call to action and a survey of what ethical and effective action requires.
