    Interesting and informative article in The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/food/20...time-vegetarian-became-beefs-biggest-champion

    I quote

    Hahn Niman’s time rebutting the claims made in Cowspiracy includes debating with one of the film’s directors in San Francisco. “It was really shocking because I’ve never sat next to someone who knew less about agriculture in my life,” she says. “Yet here is someone telling everyone how we need to eat and what we need to farm. I feel like I need to bring facts and reason in and say, ‘OK, you’ve heard this inflammatory statement. Where’s the truth? How do we get to solutions? We want to eat healthily and ethically – what choices should we make?’”​

    I am glad to read this, surrounded as i am by sheep and cattle. The US factory farming is very different from the way farming goes on in the rest of the world, including here. Yet major decisions are made by others based on just the worst of the US farming practices. Madness!
