I had the privilege of attending the NYC premiere of COWSPIRACY a few nights ago. The film had already screened to sold-out audiences in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. It was riveting, intriguing and full of crucial information that everyone needs to know. Just take a look at the trailer here: Cowspiracy explores the impact of animal agriculture on planet earth, seeking not only to showcase stark stats and expert opinions, but also to expose the conspicuous silence surrounding this significant subject by otherwise respected environmental groups.
While we’re well aware agribusiness has the government in its pocket, it took filmmaking team Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn to uncover the fact that also seemingly in said pocket are the eco powers-that-be. Everyone from Greenpeace to Oceana, Rainforest Action Network to Amazon Watch, Sierra Club to 350.org…the list goes on and on. No one’s addressing the degree to which our diets and lifestyle choices dictate climate change.
