Before the news of the fires in the Amazon drew national attention, environmental organization Mighty Earth was calling out American agricultural giant Cargill for its contributions to deforestation in South America, among numerous other environmentally destructive practices. In this episode, host Lisa Held talks to Mighty Earth CEO Glenn Hurowitz about the scathing report the organization released (and the New York Times covered) in July—Cargill: The Worst Company in the World. They discuss why Cargill is such a standout offender when it comes to environmental degradation, how industrial animal agriculture contributes to deforestation and other issues, and what can be done.
