    It took more effort than I expected to look for the exact miles for each flight. Also, This action makes me want to do more research on the cash flow of carbon footprint offset.

    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    People in richer countries have more access to meat than those in other places because they are more likely to afford it. Meats are very good sources of protein for human body, and they contain nine essential amino acids that the human body cannot make by itself. Moderate intake is good for health. On the other hand, in order to feed livestock, tremendous water consumption and land use do harm to the planet because it indirectly aggravates CO2 emission and global warning.

    How are environmental issues like black carbon and other emissions from cooking fires or rudimentary cookstoves also human health and social justice issues? Why do these issues matter to you?

    'Unclean' cooking - rudimentary, open-fire cooking practiced by millions of people around the world - is one of the leading causes of respiratory disease and death, especially for women, in developing countries; it is also a serious contributor to deforestation, air pollution, and continued poverty (due to the cost of fuel).

    In my opinion, it's a fundamental human rights to be away from hunger and danger. If people have no choice but to be under the risk of respiratory disease and death in order to feed themselves, it is definitely the most urgent and crucial problem that needs to be solved.
