Recent and Upcoming Just Views Programs
Friday, June 12, 2015 at 7:20 pm: Animal Agriculture and Climate Change
Join us for a screening and
discussion of “COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret”. In this
groundbreaking, feature-length, environmental documentary, filmmaker Kip
Andersen uncovers one of the most destructive industries facing the planet
today. Andersen investigates animal agriculture (such as breeding cattle,
hogs, and sheep for production of animal products). “Cowspiracy” reveals the
devastating environmental impact that large-scale factory farming has on our
planet, and advocates going vegan to help with global sustainability.
Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry; vegans are vegetarians who do
not use any animal products or by-products.
As the film explains, animal agriculture is a leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution. Animal agriculture is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, and ocean “dead zones.” So, the film asks, why do many big green groups ignore animal agriculture as a driver of climate change? For more information on film, go to www.cowspiracy.com.
Discussion will follow including local environmental and vegan resource people. This program is a must if you are looking for ways to positively impact the environment, lessen your carbon footprint, or are curious about a plant-based diet. We welcome audience participation and all points of view. Join us!
