Many people are already advocating, but in the end it's up to us.

    Thank you! Glad you like it :)

    Renee, I agree: there are many agents of pollution in the world.
    To me it wasn't obvious that animal production had such a great impact though. It blew my mind I could help reduce some pollution & improve sustainability just by eating less meat, so I thought to spread the message - this presentation was born and I'm happy you like it! :)
