In my grade 10 geography class we have been looking at natural resources. My teacher has assigned a "written debate" assignment. My topic is the impact of the beef industry on the environment. The down side is that I have to present both sides of the arguement with articles from the internet. I had no problem finding articles on how the beef industry is bad for the environment, but I can't find any articles that argue against this.



I was wondering if anyone could help me out.



P.S.

We are also having a test on natural resources and in the cattle section one of the questions is going to be on cuts of beef. I'm not sure how this is important. How would you answer this question on a test? Because I am not going to study sick crap like that.



Thanks a lot!!

I would start with pro-omni organizations like the National Cattleman's Foundation and Beef Checkoff. There's not much, but you can find stuff like http://www.beeffrompasturetoplate.org/environment.aspx . And you can find a ton on cuts of beef. http://www.google.com/search?client=...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 if you care to study it. I would explain to the teacher up front that you fail to see how carving up a cow can help you understand anything about geography, and you as a vegan would appreciate such offensive topics being left off a test. If that doesn't work, talk to your advisor or dean.
