  1. Definitely, topics worth talking about but, this is definitely NOT the big picture as the narrator has implied that she has done.
    Sorry, too much bias blabbering and NOT enough balanced data and information to be even close to having credibility.

  2. I can't get past toxic in, toxic out. As a biochemist, I can assure you that this is simply not true. It's a simple fact of chemistry that if you mix two chemicals, you can get something with totally different properties. Take table salt, for example. Chlorine gas is highly toxic, sodium is highly explosive in water, but when you combine them they make something that we eat every day, even need.

  3. A wonderful video that shows us why the system that we are living in is unsustainable, wasteful and even detrimental to our very well-being. There is no option, left now for us but to change for a more sustainable and green economy or else, we will continue to suffer more in the long run or even run the risk of running out of resources and spoiling this beautiful life-giving planet. Kudos to the presenter and her team. Please keep it up.

  4. This is a great video that I believe only scratches the surface, but I'm glad it was made and that it will open peoples eyes to the issue. I do wish they would have gone a little into Animal Agriculture, I hate the way we treat living beings as products and that we are destroying our planet with pollution and deforestation just for "Bacon though" We can make some huge changes to this planet just by removing animals from the dinner table. "I understand that meat tastes good … and I know you think you’re just one person and it won’t change anything if you stop but that’s ignorant and stupid. If you have half a brain, you should know ‘one person’ adds up. Be smarter.” – Billie Eilish

  5. i'm afraid greed and corruption are winning. because you forgot to mention 2 more by-products of consumerism – gullibility and APATHY! and this throw away mentality even dominates our "pop culture" with throw away celebrities, throw away music and throw away art. the elite have completely corrupted the very core of what it means to be human. idiots in Russia, india, china and brazil are rushing to see how quickly they can become "Americanized" and do their part in destroying our planet. meanwhile, the elite are installing police-state technologies into our consumer goods, shifting to a cashless, home-delivery, on-line driven consumer economy and the youth, of each new generation, just become more trusting and accepting of these scams and more oblivious to the deterioration of their own freedom and humanity. the future of humanity and our planet looks very grim indeed!
