“Let us not take this planet for granted.” – Cowspiracy this Sunday, March 6


And lastly, I just want to say this: Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.

– Leonardo DiCaprio (excerpt from Academy Awards 2016 Acceptance Speech)

Hi everyone,

Did you know that Leonardo DiCaprio, in addition to his many other environmental accomplishments, signed on as Executive Director for the film, Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret?

This film does an excellent job of elucidating the greatly under-recognized role animal agriculture is playing in destroying our homeland, i.e. earth. The bad news is that the current level of destruction is catastrophic. The good news is that food choices can be a great source of personal empowerment. We have tremendous control over what we eat, unlike many other areas of life.

If you haven’t seen the film yet, please do everything you can to join us this coming Sunday, March 6 for A Screening of Cowspiracy: TheSustainability Secret – RSVP.

If you have already seen it, you know how important this film is, so please invite your friends.
