World Leaders will soon discuss climate change issues and solutions. The 2010 United Nations Climate Change Conference, aka “COP16“, is coming up this December.
Meatfree COP16 is a campaign to encourage world leaders to take climate change seriously by adopting a plant-based vegan diet for the duration of the conference. It’s a small sacrifice that can have a big impact on the rest of the world.
The campaign website says:
Recently, according to a new report from the UN. The report, Assessing the Environmental Impacts of Production and Consumption: Priority Products and Materials from the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP), found that consuming a diet free of meat and dairy will be the best approach to dealing with climate change and its consequences.
So despite all the science pointing to animal agriculture being the largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, inter-governmental talks do not even include on their agenda the discussion of the meat and livestock industries. The facts clearly demonstrate animal products are unsustainable and truly detrimental.
One goal of this meeting is to strive in making sustainable choices, therefore, we ask that our representatives and world leaders attending the COP16 truly take the initiative and demonstrate courage in choosing to be vegan during their attendance of this historical conference.
