Paul McCartney Asks Climate Talks to Go Meatless for the Planet

Always one to stand up for animals and the environment, Paul McCartney wrote a letter earlier this week attempting to protect both in one punch.

The Beatle asked Ms. Christiana Figueres and Mr. H.E. Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, who are leading the climate change conference in Doha, to acknowledge the heavy impact animal agriculture has on our environment. According to McCartney, while the U.N. has made such a declaration, the Conference of the Parties has yet to.

The singer wrote, “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 (COP). I therefore call upon you to bring this issue to the attention of the conference and encourage the adoption of policy and individual actions, such as a weekly meat-free day.”

We love how he sneaks in the Meatless Monday request at the end. With more environmentalists giving up animal products for the planet, we think it’s only a matter of time before planet loving activists swap their beef burger for a veggie burger.

    Paul is an example to all vacuous pop stars in this world. He always gives something back to the animals and environment. He’s super wealthy, getting older, he doesn’t need to continue speaking out, yet he still does because he really cares.
