100 thoughts on “Global Warming Documentary: MEAT THE TRUTH (HD, full length • 4 subtitles)

  1. Already vegan but I wish I had seen this at the same time An Inconvenient Truth changed the way I live.
    Better late than never.

  2. This video is far better presented than any other I have watched on Global Warming and it obviously as it's title is 'Meat the Truth' lets us know about meat production.

    I am a vegetarian but I do eat eggs, cheese and fish. However, after watching this I am very likely to change my diet to become a vegan.
    It took me a long time nearly 6 months to a year to become vegetarian but I think this change will be easier.

    I would definitely recommend watching this; if you can't do it all at once go back and watch in batches. It is entertaining and the presenter is charming.

  3. The thing about PETA and why I cannot fully support them is that they are eco terrorists. They are on the FBI watch list for multiple actions of firebombing and assault. And they attempted to kidnap my pet rabbit. Many of there causes are bull$#@% even if there hearts are in the right place. And they have violated multiple trademarks. They are in trouble with Nintendo and are waiting for there day in court.

  4. An impressive eye-opener of a film. Very thought provoking. A Must See Film!! 5 * * * * * Watch it, discuss it & pass it on!

  5. is methane dierctly more harmful to people than cars though? as far as i understand cars burn out the fuel and cause many cancer causing substances?

  6. Btw if you really want to get to the younger people like myself you shouldn't post only women and old men who are advocates of this , who do you think will have more effect on an 18y old some random actresses and old dude or someone like i dont even know but you get my point .

  7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52Mx0_8YEtg The real truth now. Check it out. You will understand CLIMATE CHANGE.. Climate change is only nature. This issue is about money and the people are not included. Al Gore is the biggest scam artist. Cap and trade is the global compound airtax on humanity. It will hurt business and families around the world.

  8. Blaming cattle for climate change is nothing but vegan propaganda for blithering idiots. Carbon much like nitrogen works in a cycle and cattle have been recycling the same carbon since before the stone age. They do not have some magical power to create more carbon, that is just idiotic to think about, the methane argument is even more idiotic on multiple levels, funny that vegans fail to mention the fact that rice paddies give off over twice as much methane as all the cattle in the world combined, somehow I don't think that is going to make it into the next propaganda video either. On top of that I cannot find ANY rational explanation why methane would increase global warming 100 times more then CO2 NOTHING. The entire idea is that CO2 holds more heat then O2 because of it's higher molar mass, yet methane has a MUCH lower molar mass then either, if anyone has any realistic explanation why it is supposedly 100 times worse then CO2 feel free to chime in but all the major sources have failed to explain it other then to say "chemical reaction" oh you mean when it turns into CO2 and water? Makes no sense at all.
    Long story short if you believe anything the vegan propaganda machine is pushing you have been punked, these people are trying to push this agenda at all costs and they are willing to compromise science to reach their goals as I have shown many times before. I invite ANY vegan "scientist" professor…etc who will try to stand by these claims to debate me. There is no defense for this kind of bad "science"

  9. As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures, there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together."

  10. Gave up watching halfway, all these ranting vegans put me off against the very idea that I was interested in before watching this.

  11. Dr. David Davies (10:40) is senior research scientist at the Institute of Biological, Environment and Rural Sciences of Aberystwyth University, UK; Dr. Henning Steinfeld (13:28, 23:14, 53:49) is an agricultural economist and coordinator of the Livestock, Environment and Development Initiative for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN; Dr. Harry Aiking (15:14) is a biochemist and microbiologist at the Free University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Dr. Danielle Nierenberg (15:40) holds a M.S. in Agriculture, Food, and Environment from the Tufts University and was Food and Agricultural Senior Researcher for World Watch Institute of Washington DC before she founded Food Tank, a non-profit organization that aims to identify environmentally sustainable ways to alleviate hunger, obesity, and poverty; Dr. John Powles (18:45, 37:29) is an MD who is Honorary Senior Visiting Fellow at the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at Cambridge University.

  12. Does this video report has a Chinese version or Chinese caption? I want to show this to all my Chinese friends, so they would become a vegetarian soon.

  13. Hi, I have Lithuanian subtitles for this movie. If I'd send them to you, would you add them here to the video?

  14. . . . but 18% is not even 20%, so the TRUTHFUL answer is that is a major contributor, but if it's higher then they need to show the numbers – to be more convincing. They keep saying the greatest, after saying 18%. I support a major reduction in meat consumption for health and environmental reasons, but not for emotional ones that mostly object to meat eating morally. I still believe that animal meat, fish or chicken are excellent sources of protein, but the question is how much do we need? Certainly it seems, we consume 4 times as much as we need. So, greed is at the root of the problem – as usual. (How long does a castrated piglet suffer? My guess – a few seconds with a sharp blade. Since it's growing fast, the healing is probably pretty quick. I hate attempts at emotional manipulation. For thousands of years, we have been meat eaters and for part of that time, eaten ourselves by carnivore predators too. It still happens occasionally and carnivores eat smaller animals. That's the food chain. It works. but now we've lost equilibrium and need to restore it. That's my position and I'm sticking with it. Most of my meals are meatless, because I'm frugal).

  16. Co2's are over three times more damaging than methane. Furthermore Co2's can stay in the atmosphere 800 years as opposed to ten years for methane.

  17. It's a good video, but not great. Too much emphasis on vegetarianism and only eating less meat, and almost zero discussion about veganism and avoiding dairy and eggs, which are even worse because they are kept longer so they can be exploited for milk or eggs until their bodies give out (which means they suffer even longer, require more food and water, and they contribute more greenhouse gases during their lifetimes), and then they are also slaughtered (so, their lives are not spared). Male chicks hatched from egg-laying hens can't lay eggs and aren't bred to be big enough for meat, so they are suffocated in garbage bags or ground up alive. Similarly, male calves born to dairy cows are slaughtered for veal, so every purchase of dairy products supports the veal industry.

  18. I love how these liberal retards state theory as a matter of fact.  90% of this video is arguable.  And good luck trying to get the US to stop eating meat in time for it make a positive impact on global warming. My fix?  Just simply realize that humans will continue to do what they  have always done since creation:  Rape, pillage, use up, pollute, kill and abuse anything that they can prosper from.  And that's not liberal rhetoric, that's an age old fact!

  19. A world with only vegans would be the solution for many things. Major result,the earthpopulation would sink from almost 8 billion to about 1 billion,a welcome reduction. It's over with the destoying of the rainforrests,it's over with that shocking waste of food and water in livestockfarming. Most meateaters haven't the slightest idea what the real costs of meatconsumption are and those who know don't even care,an indifferent attitude.

    The shitpollutionproblem would be over.Cleaner and fresh air.
    There wouldn't people die because of resistant-bacteria due to the excessive use of anti-biotics in livestockfarming..

    Animals wouldn't have to fear for that other indifferent earthling. No more animal abuse by indifferent meateaters. Beautiful elephants,rhinos,whales,tigers and many other animals would be saved from extinction,seals would be forever saved from that other earthling,that beast,that meateater.

    Anghorarabbits,ducks,goose,racoondogs and other animals would be save. No more disgusting animaldraggings. No animalskin trade. Those disgusting ritual killings of animals to please non existing gods would be over,force feeding of ducks and goose would be history. Painfull featherplucking of ducks and goose would be over,worldwide all those idiotic animal abusive local villagerituals would be over..hunting would be another bad thing from the past.

    Those disgusting furfarms would be closed forever. Thanks to the populationreduction and remaining vegans the global warming would be stopped.
    There would be enough food and water for every earthling,hunger would be over. Nowdays,there is enough food,money and technology but famines still yes still happen,a big big disgrace for mankind..

    Land.
    There would be enough land for many other good things.Part of the land used for growing food for pigs,cows,chickens etc could be turned over into beautiful natureparks where wild animals could live safely.

    I many times wonder why one reason was enough for me to stop eating meat and 10 more reasons aren't enough for meateaters. IT MUST BE COLD INDIFFERENCE.

    A world of vegans simply would be a much better world.

    I know it won't happen but it's a nice dreamworld.

    Those defenders of lifestockfarming might even say that livestock have a roof above their heads,plenty of food,a doctor that watches over them and that it's cosy with each other..they are even better of than so many humans. Isn't that sickening?

  20. Eating Meat is not the true source of the problem, too many people on the planet because of cheap oil, gas, and coal is the problem, but that is coming to an end.
    You cannot have infinite growth on a finite planet regardless of whether they eat meat or not.
    Good documentary!

  21. Outstanding!🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I am vegan now, and so happy contributing to the wellness of the planet. There is so much to do, we need to create awareness. 😌

  22. As a 15 year vegan I can spot vegans by their appearance. Though the speaker is rather attractive, when she said she is vegetarian, I knew I was right, not vegan. A vegetarian is someone that can't give up dairy. She is still part of the problem. Cow milk is for a calf.

  23. Another myth, the original professor that put out the theory and only theory later came out and said the science used was completely flawed and that there is completely no reason to worry. Theres 40% more ice now at the pollar caps and it was reported bye the scientific groups who are there and studying the polar caps. This video is pure B.S. there just trying to use fear to grow rich and powerful.

  24. Shouldn’t we wonder if on a globe that the ‘gases’ would just go out into ‘space’. But because we live on a flat earth, probably under a dome, there is no escape for these gases.

  25. At 3.37 scientist and psykopat David Keith, a strong advokat for geoengineering(aka chemtrails), witch, in fact, is the BIGGEST treat EVER to the Earth environment! Forget cow-farts, co2 and metan, THIS is what we're REALLY up against! GEOENGINEERING/CHEMTRAILING the skies is a crime against ALL life on Earth, and we MUST fight it TOGETHER, fuck who's vegan or not!!

  26. ANIMAL FACTORY FARMING/ DAIRY & CATTLE RANCHING ARE A HUGE PORTION OF CLIMATE CHANGE.; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzJN0q-DUVc

  27. Thought u could avoid MAD COW BY BEING VEGAN -NO-ORGANIC FARMERS R USING ANIMAL MANURE & ANIMAL PARTS IN THEIR FERTILIZER & MAD COW DISEASE IS BEING TAKEN UP BY PLANTS ; https://gentleworld.org/whats-hiding-in-your-organic-fertilizer/

  28. Al gore is full of shit, Green house gasses is a cash cow for the elite , Do your research away from main stream media and you will have find the truth. America is the culprit of all this bullshit. Stupid people don’t even research and believe everything they hear on the tel lie vision, wake up for fucks sake.Plastic is a problem in the ocean’s , chemical from industry’s is a problem, they need to be dealt with, but The climate is always changing, it has been for thousands of years , there weren’t airlines and cars 200 years ago so what changed the climate then ?American has patterns on weather modifying frequency weapons, they are causing 99% of the problems in this world. Black mailing country’s to do certain things or else they will send a drought or a hurricane their way.Don’t believe me, do the research!

  29. Cowspiracy is much more educational as far as statistics, I recommend it. It is an amazing fact that both world hunger and global warming would be largely solved if everyone went vegan.

  30. we need to tell our politicians LIARS THEY ARE that we are not going to take their BS anymore ,,,,tell us the truth or get another job ,,we will vote you out

  31. its nothing new for me .. its making me said that the message ist not reaching the peoples Minds
    The see the Film In The movie theaters ..
    The See it .. its goes in from the left ear und it exits unsaved and not understoot the message..
    As the film endet .. the people left the Filmroom..
    And on there way out they buy themselfs Beef Jerky & and a Milkshake to Go..
    I would Estimate that only 5% leave Sick ..feeling Bad and will not eat meat anymore!!

    We schould all quit eating Meat.. Immediatly ..
    Not all need to be vegetarian but if we all wouldn't eat meat for 2 weeks
    And with all I mean everyone on this with Homo Erectus Infected Planet …
    Because if you haven't Noticed ..
    We Are Killing Mother Earth !!!!
    The great thing that Mother Earth can Do is regenerate Herself…
    That happens after every Single human Beeing Died du Too its own Greed!!!

  32. Not just global warming. Pound for pound, it takes magnitudes more of water to produce meat than plant food. The lack of fresh water is an expanding global crisis as well. Check it out. Al Gore neglected to talk about meat. Don't forget to think about other environmental issues such as fresh water supply.

  33. I had to watch this for a school assignment, that school assignment was to write my reaction towrds this documentary on one intermediate pad paper, I ended up taking up at least 2 and a half papers. I didn't even explain half my opinion on this video. I'm feeling angry, irritated, sad, awed, surprised, a lot of things. It's already 2018, and not much has changed since the release of this documentary. We all say we want to help stop this, though do we really do it? If you say you want to be part of the move, don't just say you will, actually do it people. This is coming from a 13 year old may I remind you, not to brag but yeah, a kid like me has opinions.

  34. Cultured meat is the solution for non vegans!!! Meat made in breweries, better for the environment.
    Uses 96% less greenhouse gases…

  35. So-called 'developed' nations have a lot to answer for. You bums are the ones driving climate change via rampant consumerism, then want to impose limitations on developing nations and then you ironically call them 3rd world and undeveloped. Hypocrisy and greed writ large.

  36. So I guess maybe there can be 20 billion people, if we eat more vegetables and less meat, then what??? Sometime population will be controlled, I strongly suspect in a rather crude way. Humans are just too Stupid to live much longer in ever increasing numbers.

  37. Can anyone post some links for good tasting vegan meas.I'm new to vegan way of life and could really use some good recipes.

  38. In the Netherlands about 70% (2.0 million ha) of the land area is used by agriculture. This area gradually decreases
    over time, due to the conversion of agricultural land to land for infrastructure, housing and nature reserves.
    Agricultural land prices increased to an average level of 35,000 Euro per ha, much higher than in most other
    European countries.
    Sand, clay and peat soils cover about 50, 40 and 10% of the land area, respectively. At present, about 50% of the
    agricultural area is grassland, 10% silage maize, 32% arable land and 6% is used for horticulture. Grass and maize
    are mainly used to feed dairy cattle. Of the grassland about 90% is permanent, the remaining 10% is temporary
    grassland. Other forage crops are hardly grown in the Netherlands (Aarts, 2003).
    The total number of farms in 2002 was approximately 89,600. The number declines by an annual 3% and the
    remaining farms expand in size. About 90% of farms comprise specialised farms. The dominant farm type is the
    grazing livestock farm in which approximately half of the grassland production is harvested via grazing, with
    44,400 farms accounting for 50% of the total farm number (Table 1). About 25,000 livestock farms are specialised
    in dairy farming, with a size that permits them to gain an acceptable income from dairying only. Pig and poultry
    farms, often with little land (on average 7.5 ha), are concentrated on sandy soils in the southern and eastern
    provinces, whereas most arable farms are located on clay soils in the north and west. The clustering of pig and
    poultry farming in the south and east and that of arable farming in the north and west results in a poor spatial match
    between supply of and demand for manure. Consequently, large quantities of manure have to be transported from
    the south and east to the north and west, to be applied in the arable sector. Dairy farming, however, is relatively
    evenly distributed over the country.

    between supply of and demand for manure. Consequently, large quantities of manure have to be transported from
    the south and east to the north and west, to be applied in the arable sector. Dairy farming, however, is relatively
    evenly distributed over the country . The present study indicates that N concentrations in groundwater and surface water are not just determined by the
    inputs of manure but rather by the combination of manure and mineral fertilizer N. Moreover, especially on grassland
    with a ‘cutting only regime’, up to 330-340 kg manure N per ha can be applied annually without exceeding a
    concentration of 11.3 mg nitrate-N (sandy soils) or 11.3 mg total-N (clay and peat soils) per litre, and without
    applying more P than the amount removed via crops. Similar conclusions were drawn by Aarts et al. (1999a, b),
    Willems et al. (2000) and Ten Berge et al. (2002). This phenomenon can be attributed to the large N uptake capacity
    of grass, to favourable growing conditions and to the long growing season (Peeters & Kopec, 1996), as well as to
    the empirical evidence that only a fraction of the soil N surplus is recovered in the upper 1 meter of the groundwater
    in situations with shallow groundwater. Theoretically, the latter can be explained by either temporary accumulation of
    the soil N surplus or by denitrification. We do not think that accumulation is a likely explanation. First, because land
    use has not recently changed towards grassland, which would favour accumulation (Figure 2), and second, because
    soil N surpluses have decreased during the last decade (Figure 3). This leaves denitrification as the most probable
    explanation why only a fraction of the soil N surpluses ends up in groundwater. This apparent denitrification is larger
    than the estimates based on measurements using the acetylene inhibition technique (Dolfing et al., 2004; Van Beek
    et al., 2004; Zwart et al., 2004). However, the acetylene inhibition technique underestimates denitrification,
    especially in wet soils where gas diffusion is hampered. Moreover, in most studies, denitrification is only measured
    in the top soil (Barton et al., 1999). The combination of shallow groundwater levels and the presence of fresh
    organic matter in the upper soil layers may create conditions favouring denitrification, resulting in relatively low
    nitrate-N concentrations in the upper groundwater (Figure 9). Additional indications for the possible underestimation
    of denitrification is provided by farm balance calculations showing a considerable ‘not accounted for’ term,
    especially in grassland (Van der Meer, 1991; Garrett et al., 1992; Jarvis, 2000; Dolfing et al., 2004; Plette et al.,
    2004). However, outputs such as gaseous losses from crop canopies or leaching of dissolved organic N
    (Macdonald & Jones, 2004), may also be underestimated.
    The present study also shows that environmentally acceptable manure inputs at the farm level depend on growing
    conditions and management in general, the harvest regime of grassland in particular and the share of crops other than
    grassland (i.e. silage maize) in the rotation of dairy farms. Even with mixed use of grassland (i.e. half of the
    production harvested via grazing) and a maize share up to 30% of the farm area, the annual use of approximately
    240 kg manure N per ha (sandy soils with deep groundwater) to 260 kg manure N per ha (clay soils) can be
    reconciled with a N concentration of 11.3 mg per litre and a P-surplus of 0 kg per ha when growing conditions are
    good and crops are well managed. Corresponding numbers for poorer growing conditions and management would
    be 190 and 220 kg manure N per ha (Table 12).
    From the point of view of P accumulation and N concentration in groundwater and surface water, limiting cattle
    slurry application rates to 170 kg N per ha per year as embedded in the Nitrates Directive (Anonymous, 1991a)
    appears to be an unnecessary restriction for many dairy farms given their crop choice, crop production levels and
    the soil and climate conditions of the Netherlands, provided that cattle slurry inputs larger than these 170 kg N per
    ha are sufficiently balanced with reduced mineral fertilizer N inputs. This is even more so if manure rates are to be
    founded on N related effects only.
    Our calculations show that there is a trade-off though between the extent to which manure can be used safely and
    the room for grazing, because manure excreted during grazing results in greater leaching losses than manure from
    animal housing that is mechanically applied (Vellinga et al., 2001; Nevens & Reheul, 2003b; Wachendorf et al.,
    2004). So, if one takes the position that grazing contributes positively to landscape quality and animal welfare, there
    are also trade-offs between these features and the extent to which one can apply manure within targeted nitrate-N
    concentrations. One could generally say that any farm, deliberately aiming at more functions than just milk
    production within N and P constraints (e.g. landscape, animal welfare, nature), will have to reduce application rates
    to levels below the ones calculated in the present paper. However, Corré et al. (2003) concluded that such
    multifunctional extensive farms are not necessarily efficient in terms of resource utilization.

  48. Nitrous oxide is nearly 300 times more potent in its harmful effects toward global warming than methane. So, as harmful as methane is, focusing on reducing nitrous oxide is far more important than focusing on reducing methane, so it's a top priority. The major contributor to nitrous oxide is nitrogen fertilizer used for growing crops, especially the soybeans, corn, wheat, and canola that are grown for cattle and human consumption. Rather than plowing and fertilizing more foods for crops, reducing these 4 crops, which are nearly all genetically-modified, would actually be effective in curbing global warming. The nitrogen used for these crops also have caused the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. Interestingly, pork, which is much more nourishing than beef and produces little to no methane, has always been the meat of choice in the U.S., Europe, Russia, and Asia, and still is worldwide, while beef has become popular only since the 1900's. Pork is incredibly important-it provides the essential brain fats that are not even available in plants (while beef has very little essential fats), as well as enough essential amino acids and B vitamins, so we can think clearly and calmly, which is why pork is so popular. Pastureland is very valuable as a nitrogen sink, plus it eliminates the huge problem of water run-off and flooding, caused by cultivated crops. Thus, going back to eating pastured pork, our traditional meat, rather than our modern foods-soy, wheat, canola, and feed-lot finished beef-would solve every environmental problem, plus we'd be far healthier.

  49. Maybe one day animal products will be taxed like cigarettes and alcohol, or put strict water meters to tax industrial meat farmers.. Somthing will change i hope its for the best… 3 weeks into my new vegan lifestyle.

  50. we need to start killing all those cows as soon and fast as possible to stop their farts from destroying the planet!!! who is with me !!!

  51. They´re forgetting the fact that world was warm enough in the middle ages to grow wine grape all over England. Vikings were farming in Greenland. Don´t get me wrong, I´m Vegan and a minimalist. I´m just not convinced about this "Man-made global warming".

  52. Comment re Silence Population Meat the Truth
    …Human Population growth – 100% predictably they're silent cowards re out-of-control population growth.
    Yep – tragically almost noone – including most vegans(I am one) and all contributors to Meat the Truth – ever dare.to (publicly) mention the most exponentially increasing environmental problem of all..namely out of control Population Growth.
    So when will you all finally have the credibility and cojones to mention and highlight this still near-taboo Inconvenient Threat that trumps every other threat – as population increases at over 200,000 per day(!) ?
    NB. human population in 1950: 2.3 billion. In 2019: 7.8 billion. A 340% jump just 69 years!
    So: you too are all just as selectively truth-blind and cowardly(eg. as Al Gore) when it comes to human population growth. The Left and Green activists(I am one) love to (rightly) condemn the illusion of Infinite Economic Growth – but stay conspicuously silent when it comes to the head-in-the-sand delusion of Infinite Population Growth.
    Break this silence – or stop hypocritically accusing Al Gore – and so many others – of selective amnesia. They are guilty – and so are you !
    Meanwhile, take a look on a regular basis at www.Populationsmatters.org. Two very well-known activists – who have far more courage than even the producers of this video – are Sir David Attenborough and Jane Goodall.
    Try to be as courageous and credible as they are – but please don't wait as long as they did before finally having the cojones to break the silence and the taboo on human population growth.

  53. …Human Population growth – 100% predictably they're all silent cowards re out-of-control population growth.

    PS. PopulationMatters.org should obviously be renamed PopulationmattersMost.org – all green solutions will ultimately be pointless – if population growth continues to grow even at half its current rate ie. "just" 100,000 per day by 2100.
