*Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret*

*As inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous
documentary reveals the devastating environmental impact large-scale
factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global
sustainability for a growing population.Cowpiracy *is a groundbreaking
feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip
Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet
today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental
organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption
and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the
transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction,
species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and
virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely

As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he
increasingly uncovers 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.
