Get Animal Agriculture a Part of Climate Discussion

In December world leaders are scheduled to come together with the aim to unite all the world’s nations in a single agreement on tackling climate change, with the goal of capping warming at 2C levels.

Tomorrow, November 12, 2015 from 11am - 12pm EST, Climate Reality is encouraging their supporters to join a twitter chat about why they are watching world leaders this December at the Paris climate negotiations, with the hashtag #WhyImWatching

We want YOU to participate too! Let's get the conversation going around about the connection of animal agriculture and climate change. Some suggested tweets might be:
