Kip Anderson, the narrator, explains how he wanted to make a difference in the environment. He was doing all the things he was told (trying to save water, riding bikes, recycling, and more). After research he found that there was another problems that was leading to the detriment of the planet: animal agriculture.
Robin brings the rest of the Titans to the Oregon Trail to teach them self-reliance in an environment without modern conveniences. He gives some background on the trail and the pioneers who traveled on it. The wagon and livestock used for traveling are also depicted.
Kip talks to members of an environmental organization about why they do not talk about the harmful effects that animal products have to the environment. The gases that are released when raising livestock for food and drinks are more harmful than other fossil fuels. Because of the increase in meat and dairy consumption, there is going to be a major increase in dangerous pollution. He notes that the industry is destroying oceans, animals, and other water consumption problems. But Kip is also worried about why the government is not talking about this.
