Sick of hearing about 'Cowspiracy'? So am I! Here is an article I previously posted on my website, http://sheldonfrith.com/

Here are 5 articles which thoroughly discredit Cowspiracy from many different angles:

How Accurate Is The Movie "Cowspiracy"?
Cowspiracy, The Building Blocks Of An Absolutist Position
An Ethical Meat Eater's Response To The Film 'Cowspiracy'
Review Of Ope's Vegan Manifesto
Cowspiracy Film Farce


In my opinion the most damaging part of the film Cowspiracy is its terrible treatment of sustainable livestock management techniques. So I have put together a bunch of evidence supporting the effectiveness of using livestock to regenerate the environment. You can access that here: "Evidence Supporting Holistic Management"

Here is a very nice 12 minute video about ranchers in Canada, North Dakota and Mississippi sequestering carbon via grazing cattle:
