Cowspiracy Documentary: “The Film That Environmental Organizations Don’t Want You to See”

Cowspiracy Official Trailer from First Spark Media on Vimeo.

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a feature-length environmental documentary following a San Francisco filmmaker as he investigates the most destructive industry facing the planet today: large-scale animal factory farming. As he investigates, he encounters a surprising resistance to discuss the subject amongst the very organizations he expected to find leading the charge against the industry. The film then takes a two-pronged approach: exposing the environmental destruction caused by factory farming and investigating just exactly why the world’s leading environmental organizations seem too afraid to talk about it.

Scientists discover that trees yelp when they’re running out of water

If a tree falls in the forest with no one around, does it make a sound? According to new research by French scientists, dying trees emit noises that indicate their imminent demise before they ever hit the ground. Huffington Post reports that lab experiments carried out by researchers at Grenoble University in France have determined that when trees are suffering in drought conditions, they make “ultrasonic pops” that are 100 times faster than the human ear can hear. The researchers used slivers of dead pine trees soaked in a hydrogel to simulate a living tree, then exposed the gel to an artificially dry environment and listened for noises caused by air bubbles building up—which simulates what a tree goes through during a drought.
