Petition: 2015 UN Climate Conference must address the impact of animal agriculture on climate change

2015 UN Climate Conference must address the impact of animal agriculture on climate change

There is irrefutable evidence that animal agriculture is a key cause of climate change. It is a leading cause of greenhouse-gas emissions, water waste, water pollution, ocean dead zones, deforestation, habitat destruction and species extinction that each significantly impacts the climate. Any global policy that claims to address climate change without addressing the catastrophic impact of animal agriculture is neither honest nor effective. While awareness about the fossil fuel industry is gaining momentum, the impact of animal agriculture on the climate has not received the same global attention.
We call on Ban Ki Moon and the leaders of the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference to ensure that the impact of animal agribusiness on our global climate is comprehensively addressed, and that an urgent action policy be created and made effective immediately.

  1. It’s hard to imagine this will be addressed in any meaningful way. The voice of the deniers will get louder at the thought that helping the planet could curtail their steak supply. Big Agriculture wants to keep getting wealthier on the suffering of farmed animals, I don’t have much hope.

    Speaking of these kinds of things–The Center for Biological Diversity has a web site where you can vote for your candidate for the Rubber Dodo Award. This is given to a person/business who activity harms the environment. I voted for Cliven Bundy. For me he represents the worst of the ranching community.

  2. The UN just issued a report urging a global shift to a plant based diet. Yet environmental discussions seldom address this issue. It’s time to raise it as the single most powerful and effective measure individuals can take.
