It's Earth Month and global warming is on our minds more than ever. The BVS is pleased to present a new Dutch-produced documentary, Meat the Truth, which is done in the style of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth and presents the case for meat production's impact on climate change. It is a must-see companion film to An Inconvenient Truth, presenting the critical information omitted from the earlier film and contributing to societal discussion about movement towards plant-based diets and thus also a more humane society.

Dutch activist Wim de Kok will be with us to introduce the film and address questions at the end. Wim de Kok is Executive Director of World Animal Net and founder of several Dutch animal rights organizations. He is a close colleague of the film's producer Karen Soeters and the presenter Marianne Thieme, a member of the Dutch Parliament. A Dutch newspaper proclaimed Thieme "A worthy successor to the Nobel prize winner."
