Farmageddon in pictures
Published by Bloomsbury early in 2017 in response to reader demand for a pictorial version of the famous Farmageddon original.
There’s no end to techno-idiocy in pursuit of profit. But far more concerning is Lymbery’s contention that the wastefulness of feeding human-edible plants and fish to animals is not just absurd but catastrophic. The main reason for hacking down the remaining South American forest is to grow soy to feed the pigs and chickens of China
Farmageddon is an excellent book: a fine overview of what’s gone wrong, with case histories and possible solutions that give cause for hope.
Lymbery’s book carries great emotional impact … Farmageddon brings fresh new material to vexed questions about how our food systems affect our health and our environment … Farmageddon’s central message is powerful: industrial farming is playing havoc with nature even while it fails at its main goal.
