Tonight at our monthly potluck, we will present some profound information on the topic of radical change in humanity’s relationship to the planet and its resources, not the least of which is animal agriculture, particularly factory animal agriculture.
The first concept presented is strangely enough about parking lots. We start here because it illustrates so well a resource we assume makes sense in our world but as you will see in this 10-minute video, it makes no sense at all:

Next, we take a look at one of the most brilliant economic thinkers of our time, Jeremy Rifkin. The entire video of his talk is about 1 hour, 40 minutes and EXTREMELY worthwhile viewing, however, we look at 13 or so minutes starting at minute 20:
The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX3M8Ka9vUA
Then we walk through a summary of a powerful report created by RethinkX, a Bay Area research organization. The report is called:
Rethinking Food and Agriculture 2020-2030
The Second Domestication of Plants and Animals, the Disruption of the
Cow, and the Collapse of Industrial Livestock Farming

Finally, we see an interview with the founder of Impossible Foods, an amazing man a story here:
