This one comes from deep within the environmental movement, inside the animal rights activists’ bunkers.
Inhabitat reports on a refusal to speak about animal farming to the animal activists [understandable just looking at some of them and their tactics] but not by those in the industry – the refusal is apparently coming from the large environmentalist bodies.
This sounds more like a case for Watt’s Up to me. Here’s the issue:
Andersen fronted the documentary, and as he approached leaders in the environmental movement he increasingly uncovered what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom – and even his life – if he dares to persist.
As Anderson notes, he has been taking short showers to save water like an environmentally responsible citizen, but it turns out that the more than 600 gallons of water used to produce one hamburger is equivalent to two months’ worth of his showering! So why is it that the problems with large-scale factory farming aren’t front and center of the fight against carbon emissions and climate change?
