A compelling call to action: go plant-based now!
Verified purchase
This brilliant film is an urgent wake up call. The science and stats are clear. Humanity is at a crossroads – cut out meat, fish and dairy now, or face catastrophe. Healing Mother Earth, our home, is up to us and there is no time to lose. #GoVegan

Essential watch and beautiful filming
Verified purchase
This is a beautiful film, managing to summarise most of the issues relating to our food system that impact the health of our plant and also humans on an individual level and global level (i.e. pandemics). I thought it was incredibly well done and hope it will soon be free to watch on Amazon Prime, so that it can reach a wider audience, as Seaspiracy did on Netflix.

The most Important film I've seen in decades
Verified purchase
Firstly I will say this film is not propaganda nor is it hearsay, it is FACT! As a one time professional Film Reviewer, I would give this five big stars for information and absolute fact shown in a realistic way and no tricks. It reveals things I never imagined, in our land and oceans which inevitably will lead to the human race being poisoned. There are no "protesters" laying on motorways no one camping out or causing disruption to our community just actual solid fact with commentary to make it clear. This film should be compulsory viewing in schools. I have for a few years now avoided eating red meat and am better for it however I ate chicken. Not any more, in fact after viewing this film I dumped two "ready meals" chicken based in the bin. I still do journalism and report for the local radio and today I will be interviewing the Head of a local school, all about Climate Change and I will without fail suggest that this is shown in the associated school. I bought the film and will show it to whomsoever I can and I suggest most sincerely that as many of you who read this please buy or rent it and see for yourself. I would point out I have absolutely no connection with the makers of this film but thank you for making it.

An engaging reminder
Verified purchase
I have been plant based for the last four years and I don't miss animal foods. Despite the fact that I was brought up on an animal farm, overall I have a very different perspective on animal agriculture now that I have grown older and I always feel grateful to have learnt the unbiased and objective science which is fairly clear on the subject. I am a firm believer of self reflection individually and this carries on to a more broad reflection relating to our impacts as a species amongst other species. Being destructive, excessive, greedy and wasteful even in a human centric sense is detrimental for our development, cohesion and broad environmental interactivity for which we depend on for everything, let alone if you start thinking of the situation outside of a human context. Reminding myself re-invigorates the priority of responsibility, realising the responsibility we as individuals have to learn and in learning to act in accordance with what we learn.

Everyone should watch this film
Verified purchase
I am already a vegan, initially for health reasons. My concern has grown for the environment and animal welfare over this time. This film is frightening. It brings home that my choice of having a plant based diet is not just the benefits to me. Without widespread adoption of this diet human life on earth will no longer be viable in a very few years. Running out of water in 30years? Livestock production the biggest polluter re greenhouse gases. Eating animal/fish based diets that are killing us. The facts seem indisputable, whether we continue to close our eyes or not is up to every individual. This film should be shown in every secondary school and then discussed seriously. I want an inhabitable world for my grandchildren. If we do not change there will not be one for them.

Everyone needs to watch this
Verified purchase
Glad someone has finally addressed the 'elephant in the room' It's time to sit up and take action, the existence of all living beings depends on all humans doing our bit to save the planet. We are well on the way to self destruction. We need to make immediate changes, there is no time to wait.

A Must Watch for Anyone That Cares About the Environment
Verified purchase
This documentary was 4yrs in the making. It's well-produced and supported by some of the most knowledgeable climate scientists and researchers out there. It highlights the desperate predicament we're in and demonstrates that we have to prioritise our planet above our insatiable appetite for animal flesh.

A must watch for everyone. The time for willful ignorance is over.

Shocking indictment of what Animal Agriculture is doing to our planet.
Verified purchase
A fascinating insight in to Animal Agriculture and how it’s destroying our planet. People only ever view the animal agriculture impact from one perspective and just laugh at cow farts but this film goes much deeper than that examining all the cause and effects, yes there is a small bit about cow farts but much more about the need for meat creating massive deforestation, poisoning of the water table, displacement and exploitation of people on a massive scale and irreversible destruction of the worlds biodiversity. Bottom line is it’s all about money and greed. As a Vegan I’m already anti animal agriculture but even non vegans will be shocked and reduced to tears at points in this film due to the self destructive aspect, we are literally eating our self to certain death. If you have a modicum of concern for your children’s future on this planet you must see this film, be informed and then make informed choices 💕
