Factory farming and global warming

I have not seen An Inconvenient Truth, but I was surprised to hear that there is nothing in it about the environmental damage caused by factory farming. Of course, I am opposed to factory farming, first and foremost, because it is corporate-controlled and culturally sanctioned massive and horrendous cruelty. But it is also very harmful to the environment.


Thanks for the link; I'm always on the lookout for more info about this issue.

I was also surprised that the excellent book by Tim Flannery, The Weather Makers, didn't mention it either. That was the first thing I looked for in the index.

I'm leaning toward agreeing with the people who say that this vital issue is left out of books because the authors don't want to deal with their own support of factory farms.
