Why we need a Plant Based Treaty
There is a climate, ocean and biodiversity crisis. Fossil fuels and animal agriculture are the driving force behind runaway global warming as well as extensive biodiversity loss, large-scale deforestation, species extinction, water depletion, soil degradation and ocean dead zones.
Addressing fossil fuels alone isn’t enough – we need action on food systems too; that’s where the Plant Based Treaty comes in. The three main greenhouse gases – carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide are at devastatingly high levels and rapidly accelerating, increasing global overheating at an alarming rate. We can change our food systems from a key contributor to a climate change champion – reversing the damage and generating food security. We have the solutions in our grasp – we just need to implement them.
