McCartney Asks UN to Adopt Meat-Free Policy

Legendary musician and vegetarian Paul McCartney writes a letter to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on the environmental impact of livestock.

Paul McCartney recently contacted Christiana Figueres, the executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, about the impact livestock makes on the environment. 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.
