Video: Harmful Impacts of Factory Farming


In July 2020, Animal People attended the annual United Nations High Level Political Forum as a member of the Animal Issues Thematic Cluster. As part of this event, Animal People Executive Director Wolf Gordon Clifton conducted a series of interviews with experts on various aspects of animal protection and sustainability. We will be releasing recordings of those interviews here on Animal People Forum.

In the video below, Peter Stevenson, Chief Policy Advisor for Compassion in World Farming, speaks with Wolf Gordon Clifton about factory farming. They discuss how factory farming is different from other forms of animal agriculture, its impact on zoonotic disease transmission and the environment, viable alternatives to factory farming, and why the U.N. has failed to address factory farming as a known contributor to climate change.
