COP events have proved controversial due to their omission of discussion of animal agriculture. This is despite the fact that it’s one of the most environmentally destructive industries.
KLAUS MITCHELL: Plant Based News (PBN) founder Klaus Mitchell gave a talk on the environmental impact of animal agriculture at COP27.
The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference started on Monday, November 6. It is this year taking place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
The annual event sees world leaders gather together to work on plans to address the climate crisis. It is thought that around 90 heads of state and representatives from more than 190 countries will be in attendance.
Previous COP events have proved controversial due to their omission of discussion of animal agriculture. This is despite the fact that it’s one of the most environmentally destructive industries.
“According to a major report published in Science journal in 2020, even if fossil fuel emissions were eliminated immediately, emissions from our food system alone would make it impossible to limit global warming to the 1.5 degree threshold, and difficult even to limit to 2 degrees,” Mitchell said in a statement.
“So I’m delighted to be speaking at COP27 as it is high time we put the spotlight on this issue if we want any meaningful chance of mitigating the effects of climate change”…
Later, Klaus explored this topic and asked people what they thought the single biggest thing we can do to reduce our impact (as individuals) on the climate. The denial and willful ignorance of these ‘frauds’ is mind-boggling… just watch. SOURCE…
