Literally inverts the actual peer reviewed data.
18 December 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

The core problem of this film is that it is flat earth and anti-science. All of the peer reviewed work, from all over the globe, shows that larger farming operations deforest less, not more, and use less water, use less pesticide, and per hectare under cultivation produce, more, not less foodstuff. So this claim: "while putting small farmers out of business and plundering the environment" means what? Yes smaller farmers are being put out of business -- because sensible environmentally concerned people want them out of business. This documentary uses pork feed as an example. Seriously the makers must think that the artisan organic prosciutto they are eating is somehow low environmental impact compared to large scale pork production? The opposite is true. Secondly the "burning of the Amazon" was debunked in no less than the NY times. The video and images used turned out to be virtually all land long already legally farmland, the same land being burned yearly and not old growth rainforest burning. Also as peer reviewed 2018 study in the journal "Nature" showed overall forest canopy has been increasing -- and increasing the most in areas with larger farming operations have taken over from smaller ones. The Nature study also showed as national income goes up, deforestation reversed to reforestation. For 25 years Brazil deforestation averaged 8,000 square miles a year but income has been going up that amount has been decreasing
