Huffington Post Chris Soros: "From methane to water consumption and rampant deforestation, the film suggests taking every car off the road won't reverse the environmental impact caused by humanity's reliance on animal agriculture."

He's recently started a production company, Animals United Movement, aimed at pushing the conversation even further over the coming years. He pulls no punches and makes no apologies: "The future of our planet is being destroyed by this industry.
Hard to argue with the data."
