I have been a vegetarian for a few years now, but my main concerns was health and animal conditions. Even though I had some information on the environmental impacts of this industry, I have never give it a deeper thought. Until this movie came along.

Cowspiracy shows evidence of how the meat industry has become the most destructive human activity today. According to their research, it is the major responsible for greenhouse gases emission, water waste and pollution, land misuse, devastation of forests and wildlife, not to mention the bad choice it represents on feeding human kind.

That lead us to a very impactful way to deal with climate issues, doesn't it?
