National Climate Change March
Posted 28 November 2008
Saturday 6th December 2008
Assemble 12 noon, Grosvenor Square, London
On Saturday 6th December, thousands of people will be marching in London, demanding that world leaders take urgent action to prevent catastrophic global climate change. Many will also be asking governments to recognise the massive impact that livestock farming has on global warming.
A major 2006 United Nations report found that animal farming is responsible for more global greenhouse gas emissions than road and air travel combined. Going vegan could reduce the impact of an individual’s diet by 60 per cent. Animal farming also uses up vast quantities of land and water. By choosing vegan foods you can help protect the planet.
Unfortunately, the massive contribution that livestock farming makes to global warming does not feature on the organisers’ agenda. Therefore, many veggies and vegans will be attending the march to promote a plant-based diet to both the non-veggie marchers and to the wider public, and to ask for world leaders to recognise livestock farming’s impact on climate change.
