Paul McCartney Asks Climate Change Conference To Take Up Vegetarian Initiative
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.05.2012



Paul McCartney has asked the conference on climate change to consider a "Meat-Free Monday" initiative. NME reports that McCartney wrote two letters to those involved in the Conference of the Parties in Doha, Qatar in order to ask them to consider the impact that livestock production can have on climate change.

McCartney wrote to Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, as well as Qatarian Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah. He wrote the following:

"Although more and more evidence is coming to light showing how the growth of the global meat industry is having alarming environmental consequences, the impact of the livestock sector on global warming does not yet seem to have been acknowledged by the Conference of the Parties (COP).

"I therefore call upon you to bring this issue to the attention of the conference and encourage the adoption of policy and individual actions, such as a weekly meat-free day...Encouraging initiatives such as Meat Free Monday would make a considerable difference to the future of the planet."
