Cowspiracy

As eye-opening as “Blackfish” and as inspiring as “An Inconvenient Truth”.
Cowspiracy may be the most important film made to inspire saving the
planet.  www.cowspiracy.com

GR:  This is an important film.  World environmental organizations and government land-management agencies should pay attention. Clearly, however, the Earth can’t sustain our population even if we eat no meat.  What I fear most, is that even if we adopted a one-child-per-couple policy today, we would still lose all our wildlife.  Even if our population started shrinking today, the loss of wildlife would continue for centuries.  We would have no animals left by the time our population reached a sustainable level.

This might not matter.  Our resource consumption now exceeds the planet’s production of new biomass.  In other words, we are eating up the savings.  Living on one’s savings can’t go on forever.  There comes a point where they are gone.  Long before we reach that point, the uneven distribution of resources will lead to great wars and human die-offs.  This is nothing to desire, even by the most ethical among us, because all the animals will be gone by the time we are.
