Survival is Different Around the World

 I also believe that in class, we are often talking about how we incorporate human nature into America's society.  What about other societies?  Do third-world countries really have the resources to become more environmentally friendly?  Their nature is also to survive.  In their case, they cannot make changes in their lives that would be environmentally friendly without threatening their survival.  If eating meat was banned in the world, some countries do not have the technology or the money to spend on creating synthetic meat.  Eating animals is still an essential part of their lives.  So is it moral to stop producing animals for meat if it means the death of innocent people?
