Pamela Anderson Urges Indian Prime Minister To Promote Vegan Food To Fight Climate Crisis


1 Minutes Read

Celebrity actor and animal-rights activist Pamela Anderson has urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to promote vegan food in a bid to fight the current climate crisis. 

The Baywatch star penned a letter to Modi, who is already vegetarian, on behalf of animal-rights charity PETA India – requesting for all food at government meetings and functions to be plant-based. 

‘Environmental crisis’

“Converting animals into meat and breeding more and more cows because humans are addicted to dairy are contributing to our shared environmental crisis worldwide,” Anderson wrote. 

“With your country’s innovation and agricultural history; I’m sure that India-produced soy and other versatile foods can easily replace these damaging foods.”

‘Waste of resources’

The star also said she was ‘shattered’ by findings of climate change’s impact on the country – citing research that suggests ’36 million Indians could face the threat of annual coastal flooding by 2050 – 31 million more than previously’. 

“The easiest thing to change is our menus,” Anderson added.”Raising animals for meat, eggs, and dairy causes nearly one-fifth of all human-induced greenhouse-gas emissions [and] uses one-third of global cropland – an enormous waste of resources.”
