Cargill, the largest privately-held company in the U.S., closed down its huge meat-packing plant in Plainview, TX. The company said that because of the drought there just weren’t enough cattle to make it worthwhile to keep the plant open.
In Pray for Rain, Don Cheadle visits Plainview and finds that most people blame the drought on the will of God or say it’s part of a natural cycle. Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist and Evangelical Christian, has a very different explanation.
