Courageous Eye-Opener to the #1 Environmental Problem: Animal Agriculture (by susan-225)
This is a major movie event, a real eye opener, documenting why animal agriculture is the #1 contributor to greenhouse gases, the #1 environmental problem , the leading cause of rain forest destruction and habitat loss, creating massive amounts of untreated waste and using far more of our precious aquifers than if we all simply ate a plant-based diet.It's not a message most meat eaters and dairy users want to hear, as it's not easy to eat vegan in a culture so oriented to meat consumption. And it's not a message environmental groups acknowledge, a mystery explored by this <more>
courageous film maker. After learning that over 1100 activists were murdered in Brazil after protesting conversion of rain forests to animal agriculture, he considered putting the lid on this project. But it was too important not to get the message out, he realized. The answer to so many environmental problems is right in front of us. It costs nothing, can be implemented today and simply requires people to switch to a plant based diet, which could amply feed several times our current population with the same production as today.One of the most startling statements of the film was this: even if we stopped all systems of transportation cars, trains, trucks, planes etc. and turned off our utilities, we would still have irreversible damage from global warming, so long as we continued to raise so many animals for food.The take away from this film is, go ahead and conserve energy, put solar on your roof, change to LED light bulbs, minimize long trips. But first, switch to a plant-based diet.
The Most Motivating Documentary Of All Time (by pspdfoundation)
Be prepared to get blown away by the SHOCKING truth that world leaders, charities and even the BIGGEST environmental organizations don't have the courage or willpower to address.Chickens, turkeys pigs and cows are collectively the LARGEST producers of methane in the U.S... Methane is 20x more powerful at trapping heat in the earth's atmosphere than carbon dioxide.The meat, egg and dairy industries produce 65% of the worldwide nitrous oxide emissions... Nitrus oxide is 300x more powerful at trapping heat in the earth's atmosphere than carbon dioxide...What does this mean? Well... <more>
Regardless of the fact that most agree we 'could and should' be powering the world with solar within the next 10 years, all of our attempts to burn less fuel, install solar panels, use less water, recycle, drive hybrid etc. etc. etc. are shocking diversions away from the far far FAR more relevant environmental hazards that are inherent to the way the meat industry is operating today...Whether you believe in climate change or not, this movie will appeal to everyone who enjoys learning about powerful institutions being dishonest and misleading to the public in order to protect profits. And after watching this movie it becomes clear that those 'promoting' the climate change train of thought are not BEING HONEST about the true causes and sources of green house gasses! Another great thing about this movie is the clever animation cuts that offer the viewers not only a great experience but also chance to end up feeling much more knowledgeable with some new seriously interesting facts! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. HIGHLY RELEVANT.
Kip's "life was simple, not a care in the world", until he saw a documentary on global warming and everything changed.Not too happy about our planet's ghastly prognosis, he wanted to do his best to conserve our limited resources. He became an "O.C.E." - Obsessive Compulsive Environmentalist - and began recycling, composting, taking shorter showers, turning the faucet off while brushing his teeth, replacing inefficient light bulbs, turning lights off when leaving a room and riding his bike everywhere he went.None of his efforts seemed to help much, instead, as years <more>
went by, things were getting worse. Kip then read an unprecedented United Nation's report and once again, everything changed... this time for good. The "sustainability secret" was unveiled and that's when this fun journey begins. "Cowspiracy" is the longest overdue film; it is audacious, poignant and funny. Kip's interviews expose the selfish and shameless agenda behind some of the biggest "Environmental" Organizations in a way that both opens eyes and entertains. Those who take pleasure in witnessing the unmasking of the powerful and negligent who only are moved by dollar signs will find "Cowspiracy" to be an aphrodisiac.
You should see this, no matter what. (by Finfrosk86)
I knew a lot of the facts before I saw this, and I wondered and still do why no one talks about this.. Why!? Well, we know why, but in a modern society it's insane that this is not front page news every day. Meat and dairy-production is destroying our planet, pretty much more than anything else.. Come on people! Wake up!I was so happy when I found out about this movie. Finally someone is talking about this.OK. The movie is good. It's informative more than preaching. Which is necessary for this kind of movie to be seen by anyone at all. who is not already vegan or vegetarian, that <more>
is I think Kip and Keegan are doing a great job here. It's personal, sometimes funny, very interesting, and oh so frustrating. Some of the people interviewed are really likable and awesome, and some not so much. Yes, I'm looking at you fat, dumb woman in the agribusiness, what's her face.Cowspiracy is a movie every single human being should see. How's that for conclusion?
Definitely a provocative, powerful film (by gilelena)
This film adds to the current inadequate conversation of how to live "sustainably" and how to "save mother earth" in a way that I have not encountered before. I was already vegetarian, and this film inspired me to recommit to a vegan lifestyle. Not only that, but it reinforced my tendency to question labels. What exactly does cage-free mean? Grass- fed? We picture happy animals living their full lives but we are wrong and we should at least know what's going on to make better decisions for ourselves and for all animals! I have read critiques that this film is biased. <more>
Ummm, what film is not? The thing is that when it comes to something that proposes something alternative to the mainstream, there is a higher level of scrutiny by those whose everyday values/habits/beliefs/ etc are being questioned! "How dare they?" Why don't we have that same level of scrutiny to the nightly news or other documentaries? Do we question those statistics as readily? Do we examine the interest of the narrator? Nope, we just digest that isht because it does not cause us to re-evaluate our daily decisions. The statistics in the film need more explanation for sure, but that is the case in all documentaries I have watched. In order for me to decide whether I want to believe the stats, I have to know what exactly they are measuring and where they are coming from. But stats aside, this film is not about stats. Take out the stats and you have a film that adds something of vital importance to today's environmental discussions and... it's about time! It shows us how our daily decisions have an impact larger than ourselves and further than we imagine. Instead of that reality depressing us, I find it serves as a thought of hope. Imagine that with our daily decisions we can make a positive impact? We don't have to be overwhelmed and re-evaluate every decision we make everyday all at once -- we would freeze in inaction! Instead take one decision at a time, inform yourself and make a better decision until it becomes a habit then make another decision. Decision by decision we can make a better world. Don't be afraid to change how you have been living your life until today!
What is right? A tough question! My family owns a grass hacienda in one of the rainiest part of Colombia. Like bamboo...you can watch grass grow. Is it wrong to grow cattle for food there? Absolutely not. One acre can grass feed up to 5 cows. On the other hand grain is grown in semidesertic areas in the USA at an exorbitant environmental cost. Aquifers are being depleted, water polluted with pesticides and grain is shipped by truck to cattle ranches. The cows don't gather their food, food is delivered to their mouth. Thousands of barrels of oil are wasted in the process. From this point <more>
of view the film is absolutely right. Some other issues are just an excuse to fill up movie time. Cow manure for example is not a problem in haciendas, everyone knows it is a great fertilizer that helps restore nitrogen and nutrients to the soil... but when manure is produced far from crops then it becomes a waste. The film never goes into how to fix what is being done wrong, its only purpose is to turn us all into vegans. I disapprove this extremist tactic. The one thing that it is absolutely true, and sad, is that 99% of the organizations funded by folks like you and me, is that they exist just to collect money! From TV evangelists, to save the children, Greenpeace and the rest, money is their principal concern. Money makes the world go around! Watch the movie... you will see the world somewhat different after wards.
Well done but terribly depressing. (by ruth-nordenbrook4)
this movie put together a mass of data to support an argument that i have been making for a long time, i.e. that industrial food production, esp of cattle and cattle products is a actually, according to the film, the leading contributor to global warming. i think the movie was deficient in one regard, a regard which most movies about global warming fail in that they do not address the fact that we, the consumers of gas & oil and of beef, eggs & dairy products, are not willing to change our ways. we demand cheap gas & oil for our multiple vehicles; we demand cheap goods; we <more>
consume massive amounts of meat, fish, poultry, eggs and other foods that depend on huge quantities of water, insecticides, land & fossil fuel to raise and transport to our markets. no politician who wanted to be elected or environmental group that wanted to stay in business could ever tell the truth. as pogo said: "we have met the enemy & he is us.the movie reinforces the despair i feel as i look at the state of the earth. i believe we are finished. i am not alone. The Nobel laureate, Dr. Frank Fenner, predicted in 2010 that humans would be extinct in 100 years. i think it will be less.thus this movie leads me to the conclusion that i should not let my concern for the environment override my desire to live my remaining years to the fullest. i recycle, have energy & water saver appliances, don't own a car and don't eat red meat. but i am not going to stop flying or eating free range when i can get it poultry and eggs.
Cowspiracy is a 2014 documentary film in which director and narrators Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn explore the destruction that animal agriculture has on our overall environment and the true path to sustainability. The documentary digs deep into the ignorance that humans have on our everyday choices and the effects it has on our environment, such as sustainability and climate change. The film exposes us to information many of our so-called "trustworthy" environmental organizations keep a secret. The films argument is basically that animal agriculture is the most harmful industry <more>
around the world today, responsible for a numerous amount of global destruction.Overrall, I can recommend this documentary to an environmental based audience. It is not safe to assume that every point made in the film is true, but the film exposes it's audience to the actual, real problems going on with the environment that are potentially kept a secret. Anyone who does not really interested in the environment, or more specifically, animal agriculture, will not have a lot to take away from Cowspiracy as they probably don't have an opinion on it in the first place.
This movie project is a bold attempt on a real issue regarding environmental problem and kudos to that. (by user-209-61939)
Not sure how much facts are real as depicted but I am convinced about message delivered in this documentary project.Environmentalism is not only about fighting issues generally discussed by the big "corporate" environmental institutions. This film explores the bigger truth that's contributing to global warming often hushed by these organisations for the want of fund-raisers they target at. It's not about saying everything they do is for extortion as the "resourceful" rivals portray these organisations to stay out of their money making business in spite of <more>
exploiting natural resources. But the movie's concern remains on the biggest cause for most of the environmental problems the earth is facing currently and they are silent about because of less support they would get, that will in turn be difficult to run their projects with few backing them.Also there is mentioning of large-scale fishing and its comparisons to wild animals on land. The ocean is like a huge national park with likes elephants, lions, deers, tortoise, etc. in form of whales, sharks, fishes, turtles, etc. and how multiples marine species are killed without protection in form of by-kill when wildlife on land are protected through some laws, national parks, reserves, etc.This project is a bold attempt on a real issue regarding environmental problem and kudos to that.
