On Fridays I like to share science-related current events with my students at the beginning of class. Last week I shared a story about the Asian Carp, an invasive species threatening the Great Lakes ecosystem. The article suggested that if carp were to become a more common food source in the American diet, than a fishing industry could develop that would help alleviate the problem.
To which one of my students responded by putting up his hand and saying:
“Oh great Ms. Kaufman. There’s a really American solution to the problem….we’ll just eat our way out of it!”
