Eating Animals : Jonathan Safran Foer Talks To Ellen About His New Book (VIDEO)

Jonathan Safran Foer spoke with Ellen Degeneres today about his new book, Eating Animals, which uncovers the horrible world of factory farming. (Check out HuffPost's series of conversations about the book here!) He explained his mission writing the book, and how becoming a new father drove him to action. He also challenged environmentalists to step up to the plate -- factory farming, he said, contributes to global warming more than any other factor. What little steps can we take to changing the way we eat? Foer says the most important thing is to inform yourself, and learn as much as you can about what's going on.
