Every year, 65 billion animals are raised and slaughtered for their meat. Nearly a third of the planet’s ice-free land surface is devoted to raising the animals we either eat or milk. The latest UN Food and Agriculture Organization estimates suggest that livestock are responsible for 14.5% of man-made greenhouse gas emissions - the same amount produced by all the world’s cars, planes, trains, and boats put together. Can the planet cope with our ever-increasing appetite for meat? This program reveals the damage livestock farming is doing to the planet and asks if it is possible to be an eco-friendly carnivore. A BBC Production. 52 minutes. Copyright 2014.
