Veg Diets for Climate Change

The Veg Climate Alliance issues declaration for diets.

The Veg Climate Alliance has drafted The Cancun Declaration, which calls for a global move to plant-based diets in order to combat climate change. The Veg Climate Alliance plans to present the declaration to world leaders, including the delegates at the UN climate conference in Cancun in December 2010. The declaration cites global meat production as the largest sector responsible for human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, and it urges political and social leaders to promote a public move to plant-based eating. The declaration; which is supported by a number of global vegan, vegetarian, and animal rights groups; also lists the large societal benefits such a move would have, including improved health, less use of land and water, and an overall more sustainable existence.
