I would make the case that beauty isn't just some arbitrary aesthetic thing that only merits preservation for however human enjoyment fits into a utilitarian calculation. Our aesthetic tastes evolved over millions of years, and they are powerful drivers. Clearly they were selected for.


Hi Katy! I'm not sure I understand your point here--could you clarify? Do you mean that if our aesthetic tastes were selected for by evolution, that's a reason in itself to preserve things we find aesthetic? I thought your next paragraph was arguing that our aesthetic tastes might be instrumentally valuable, in that they encourage us to preserve things that might help us increase our utility.

Some methods of regenerative agriculture, including animal agriculture, claim to be carbon sequestering rather than carbon emitting.

Also, could you share the type of the animal agriculture you're talking about?


I can confirm that's the case for Amazon US as well.

"If the Amazon.com price decreases between the time you place your order and the end of the day of the release date, you'll receive the lowest price, either through a price adjustment in your unshipped order, or through a refund within 24-72 hours following the release date."
