      Livestock farming creates major environmental problems: A reduction in
      meat consumption is inevitable

      Meat the Truth is the very first documentary to address the
      Relationship between livestock farming and climate change. The film is
      presented by the Dutch politician Marianne Thieme, member of parliament
      for the Party for the Animals in the Netherlands. Meat the Truth is
      based on authoritative and influential scientific sources, which
      demonstrate that livestock farming is one of the most important causes
      of global warming. The conclusions reached by this Dutch production have
      already generated more societal debate
      Than the underlying reports upon which it is based.

      The livestock farming industry is responsible for the emission of more
      greenhouse gasses worldwide than all the cars, lorries, trains, boats
      and planes added together. The calculations used in the film derive
      from and have been verified by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of
      the United Nations (FAO), the World Watch Institute and the Institute
      for Environmental Studies, Free University Amsterdam and numerous other
      reliable scientific sources.

      Many celebrities, such as Pamela Anderson, Bill Maher, James Cromwell,
      Emily Deschanel, Tony Denison, Esai Morales, Megan Blake, Debra Wilson
      Skelton, Elaine Hendrix, Kate Flannery, Carol Leifer, Joy Lauren, Hal
      Sparks, Constance Marie, Kristina Klebe, Skyler Gisondo, Graham Patrick
      Martin, Greg Vaughan and Touriya Haoud Vaughan, participated in the
      making of this documentary, which has already been described by Dutch
      newspapers as being better than Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth.

      The Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation hopes that this film will make a
      Valuable contribution to the societal discussion about the transition to
      a more plant-based diet and thus also a more humane society. Moreover,
      the Foundation also hopes that the film will provide a showcase for the
      important reports on livestock farming and climate change, which have
      thus far proved inaccessible to the general public.

      Excerpts from reviews that appeared in major Dutch newspapers:

      As true as a belching cow; Marianne Thieme has estimated the impact of
      livestock farming on the greenhouse effect correctly.
      There is nothing wrong with the calculations
      The impact of livestock farming has been correctly calculatedIt avoids
      all crude effects.
      The film lacks the demagogy and the many inaccuracies, which made Gore's
      film so weak.

      NRC Handelsblad.

      In the film, Marianne Thieme outshines Gore's presentation skills with
      verve. In many ways, Thieme proves herself to be a worthy successor to
      the Nobel Prize winner.
