Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet
A documentary by George Monbiot
UN World Food Programme
Ted Talk|Carolyn Steel
- Updated Inspiration
In this challenging documentary the journalist and environmentalist George Monbiot examines the impact livestock farming has on the planet.
Monbiot defends that large herds are some of the main emitters of methane into the atmosphere, worsening the greenhouse effect.
Moreover, he states that the land occupied by farms could be returned to its natural habitat as forests, meadows and marshlands.
On the other hand, the journalist shows us alternative food sources in the documentary, such as synthetic meat, proteins produced by bacteria and explores other revolutionary ideas to change agriculture as we know it.
