Cowspiracy Now Widely Available!

A few months ago I blogged about Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret and interviewed the protagonist / co-film maker Kip Andersen. He ROCKS!

If you have not seen this film yet, it is now available by instant download online & DVD. There are still lots of community screenings happening, so if you want to make a night of it, check out the screening schedule here.

Have you seen it yet? Do you want to host a screening of it? Request one here!

    Save taxpayer’s money AND defund climate change and environmental destruction by ending the enormous subsidies and tax breaks for animal agriculture!

    With 60+ BILLION food animals on the planet our best chance to mitigate climate change is to severely reduce consumption of animal foods. More than 1/3 of human induced warming is attributable to animal agriculture. Methane is 24 times more potent than CO2 but takes only 7 years to cycle out of the atmosphere. CO2 takes around 100 years to come out. Human pursuit of animal protein is the leading cause of methane release and a primary cause of CO2 concentrating in the atmosphere. Check the facts and act!

    “As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Worldwatch Institute, “Is Meat Sustainable?”

    “If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains… the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund

    “A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy.” ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy

    There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other. But no one wants to talk about it…

    Step by Step Guide: How to Transition to a Vegan Diet

    We enjoyed this..I’ve watched it twice. It wasn’t what I expected. I did walk away from it feeling a bit overwhelmed and discouraged, but my mind was definitely on fire.
    I’m grateful this was made. I think about it a lot and use it as a springboard to educate

    To be honest, I am really scared to watch it. I am an ethical vegan, but I do want to recommend documentaries to people who are interested in veganism and I don’t think it would be fair, if I recommended something that I didn’t watch. Does it include a lot of footage with animal cruelty?

      Aniqa there is no gore in this documentary, and it is very informative… I would recommend you watch it, so you can recommend it. I am an ethical vegan as well … Take care.
