Too Much Meat At Climate Conference: Environmental Groups
The organizers of a global climate conference are being criticized for offering too many meat dishes to attendees.
Twice as many meat dishes as plant-based ones are available in the main food court of the meeting venue in Poland, according to the U.S. based environmental groups The Center for Biological Diversity, Farm Forward and Brighter Green, the Associated Press reported.
The groups claim there are twice as many meat dishes as plant-based ones, and that if all the conference participants selected meat dishes, it would be the equivalent of burning half a million gallons of gasoline.
Meat production releases far higher levels of greenhouse gases than vegetarian foods, the AP reported.
The objective of the meeting that started Sunday is to identify ways to significantly reduce greenhouse gases linked to climate change.
