Food for Thought

Presents the environmental effects of eating meat.

A printer-friendly version of this page 28 minutes
Directed by Robert Dean and Roger Bingham
Produced by KCET

Featuring science writer Roger Bingham, this is a fascinating update of information first presented in Bullfrog's "Diet for a Small Planet" about the environmental consequences of a meat-centered diet.

Comparing a cow to a gas-guzzling automobile, Bingham explains the inefficiency of using meat as fuel for the human body, especially in light of the environmental impact of raising all that meat--from loss of topsoil, and groundwater depletion and pollution, to methane's contribution to global warming, and the growing gap between the rich and poor nations.

"This well-balanced, thought-provoking companion to FAT CITY urges viewers to weigh the taste for beef against global responsibilities."

"Instructively but humorously compares the environmental effects of driving a car with meat-eating...Show this one to school and civic groups just before lunch and watch hamburger sales plummet."
The Animals' Agenda

"Would interest a wide range of viewers from junior high level to adult...a good buy for libraries or schools looking for fairly objective, informational videos on this topic."
