On Thursday, Sir Paul McCartney will deliver an address to the European Parliament in Brussels, urging the governing body to adopt the Meat-free Monday campaign. The address will focus on the environmental benefits of reduced meat consumption and emphasize the importance of developing more sustainable food policies. Fellow vegetarian Rajendra Pachuari, chair of the UN intergovernmental panel on climate change, will join McCartney for the address. It comes less than one week before the highly anticipated United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.
