McCartney Asks UN to Adopt Meat-Free Policy

In the letter delivered to Figueres, McCartney says, “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 as yet seem to have been acknowledged by the Conference of the Parties … ” The singer and passionate vegetarian also reminded the climate-conscious organization about the severe repercussions that meat production has on the environment and encouraged the group to participate in his meat-free day campaign.
