Los Angeles -- The topic of climate change was front and
center in President Barack Obama's second
inaugural address on Monday, and Maggie Q is
challenging concerned citizens to fight one of the leading causes of climate
change—factory farming—by baring her body for an edgy new PETA billboard in Los
Angeles that reads, "Fight Climate Change
With Diet Change. Go Veg." The new ad, which features the Nikita
star naked and painted like the Earth, was shot by top celebrity photographer

billboard will remain in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip at La Cienega for
one month, starting today.

the planet, I'm not hurting other people on this planet, I'm not hurting
animals, … and I'm not hurting nature."

climate change, and researchers at the University of Chicago concluded that

give your health a boost, as vegans are less prone to heart disease, strokes,
diabetes, cancer, and obesity than meat-eaters are. And, of course, it saves
animals from extreme suffering on factory farms, in slaughterhouses, and on the
decks of fishing boats.
Maggie Q is part of a growing list of celebrities—including Alicia
Silverstone, Casey Affleck, Paul McCartney, Joaquin
Phoenix, Forest Whitaker, Kevin Nealon, Lisa Edelstein,
Emily Deschanel—who have teamed up with PETA to promote vegetarian and

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
