Description

Over 50 years ago, Rachel Carson sounded the alarm bells on how intensive farming was killing the environment. Philip takes to the skies above Chesapeake Bay in America to show that we need to heed her warning: it's time to unveil the modern agriculture industry, to create a 'culture of accountability' and to find solutions to end the devastation before it's too late. Over a three-year period Philip Lymbery (CEO of Compassion in World Farming) has travelled the world bearing witness to the hidden cost of cheap meat and the devastating impact of factory farming -- on people, animals and our planet. The findings of this journey are brought together for the very first time in Farmageddon (published by Bloomsbury). Farmageddon is now available to order online and in all good bookshops.
