The shocking film “Cowspiracy” is now available on Netflix. This film shows, among other things, that in order to survive, mankind will likely have to become vegans, since we will not be able to feed the people with meat because it takes too much land and water to produce. The world population can be fed easily with what we produce, but not if we must raise plant food to feed livestock.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.
