  1. This is a nice well-meaning documentary, and has some interesting ideas to explore. But the idea that just by de-growing and thus using less fossil fuels we can stop climate change is non-factual at all. As long as animal agriculture exists, we will inevitably reach the non-returning point of too much global warming, even if the whole transport and industry sectors went carbon neutral soon (which won’t happen anyway). So very nice to watch documentary but completely missing the most important point. There is no future if we let the food industry continue as it is today. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change and environment destruction. No amount of degrowth will help if we don’t stop breeding and killing billions of animals, period.
