This documentary deals with the devastating impact of livestock farming on an environmental level. This film uncovers how animal agriculture is the main cause of climate change and is responsible for the greenhouse effect, with a higher gas emission than the entire transport industry.
It also shows how large-scale livestock farming is the main cause of many environmental imbalances such as deforestation, desertification, drought and species extinction.
Apart from the ethical and health reasons, this documentary also gives us many reasons why to avoid the consumption of products of animal origin, and proves that a transition towards a plant-based diet will allow a sustainable population growth and a dramatic reduction in the impact on climate change.
Among the organizations investigated in the documentary are Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Surfrider Foundation, and Rainforest Action Network, which focus on appeasing carbon dioxide, whose levels are stabilizing and that is to be applauded, but they leave out methane, whose atmospheric levels continue to rise.
This process in its entirety, from raising to the sale of meat, involves a large emission of greenhouse gases, and is related to the loss of natural habitat.
