O video usa o ponto inicial da mudança climática para descobrir os efeitos da expansão e da intensificação do setor da pecuária na segurança alimentar, uso de recursos, questões de equidade e sustentabilidade, subsistência, e bem-estar animal no Brasil. This video, with Portuguese narration, addresses the relationship between Brazil's livestock sector and climate change. Amid global pressure to curtail the destruction of the Amazon forests as a prime means of addressing climate change, Brazil's president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has pledged to cut deforestation rates by 72 percent by 2018. He has however also promised to double the country's cattle herd—nearly 200 million at present—by this time, too. Watch this video to better understand the connection between Brazil's production of meat and soy, the destruction of the Amazon and Cerrado, and climate change.
