“Michael Pollan likens consumer choices to pulling single threads out of a garment.” Jane Goodall

We pull a thread when we refuse to buy meat or dairy products from cows who were never allowed to chew grass, or breathe fresh air, or feel the warm sun on their backs.”

Meanwhile, below-ground nesting species appeared to benefit from the increased access to bare soil.
