Editorial Reviews

Meat the Truth is a high-profile documentary, presented by MP Marianne Thieme (leader of the Dutch party for the Animals), which forms an addendum to earlier films on climate change. Although such films have succeeded in drawing public attention to the issue of global warming, they have repeatedly ignored one of the most important causes of climate change: the intensive livestock production. Meat the Truth draws attention to this by demonstrating that livestock farming generates more greenhouse gas emissions worldwide than all cars, lorries, trains, boats and planes added together. The calculations used in the film derive from and have been validated by the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the UN (FAO), the World Watch Institute, the Institute for Environmental Studies of the Free University Amsterdam and numerous other authoritative sources. 'Meat the Truth' is presented by Marianne Thieme, leader of the Dutch Party for the Animals. A range of international celebrities, such as Pamela Anderson, Bill Maher, James Cromwell, Emily Deschanel, Tony Denison, Esai Morales, Megan Blake, Debra Wilson Skelton, Elaine Hendrix, Kate Flannery, Carol Leifer, Joy Lauren, Hal Sparks, Constance Marie, Kristina Klebe, Skyler Gisondo, Graham Patrick Martin, Greg Vaughan and Touriya Haoud Vaughan, participated in the making of the international version of the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meat the Truth May 13, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a good introduction to understand the link between livestock farming and carbon emissions.
Marianne Thieme (leader of the Party for the Animals in Holland) succeeds in highlighting to the public what other documentaries about climate change have missed: the fact that industrialised livestock farming is not sustainable for the Earth, for the animals, for the communities.
I absolutely recommend watching this documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good film, recommend for everyone October 31, 2008
Format:DVD
The meat industry as the number one cause of global warming is not informed to the public by the government. This documentary reveals this real "inconvenient truth". Highly recommended for everyone who cares about our planet, each inhabitant needs to take action to save the earth before it's too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary! November 2, 2008
By humble1
Format:DVD
Scientific info from FAO, Worldwatch institute, Free university Amsterdam and much much more about the problems of rising meat consumption.
Nice carbon saving table: Carbon savings that could be achieved in the USA through a reduction
in meat consumption
CARBON SAVINGS USA
Days
per
week
no
meat
CO2 in
Megatons
per
annum
If all Americans ate no meat for .... days a week
This would result in the same carbon savings as taking 19.2 million cars
off the road in the USA for a year long.
1 day 99,6
If all Americans did not eat meat for one day a week, they would save
99.6 megatons of greenhouse gas emissions. This would save 46 million
return flights from New York to Los Angeles and back from Los Angeles to
New York.
2 days 199.2 If everyone in the US did not eat meat for two days a week, they would
save 199 megatons of greenhouse gas emissions. This would have the
same positive effect on reducing greenhouse gases as replacing ALL
household appliances in the US with energy efficient ones.
3 days 298.6 If all Americans did not eat meat for three days a week, they would save
almost 300 megatons of greenhouse gas emissions. This would have a
greater impact on the climate than replacing all US cars with Toyota Prius
models.
4 days 398.4 If everyone in the US did not eat meat for four days a week, they would
save 398 megatons of greenhouse gas emissions. This would result in
carbon savings equivalent to halving the domestic use of all electricity,
gas, oil, petroleum and kerosene in the United States.
5 days 498 If all Americans abstained from eat meat for five days a week, they
would save 498 megatons of greenhouse gas emissions.
