This 55-minute documentary was produced as part of the University of Victoria Human Dimensions of Climate Change program (Canada).
Numerous international studies report livestock agriculture as responsible for a significant role in human-induced greenhouse gas emissions. A dietary reduction in animal products is one of the single largest ways you can help reduce your carbon footprint. Worldwide, initiatives such as Meatless Mondays in 24 countries are impelling a sea change in the way we think about food and its environmental impacts.
Why do our government initiatives on climate change remain silent on this topic? The film looks into Canada's misleading reporting structure of greenhouse gases emissions, and also includes interviews with several Canadians who each discuss personal commitment to different levels of reduction: from 'locavores' and flexitarians to vegetarians to vegans.
