James Cameron, famed director and well-known climate change activist, has a message for the masses: go vegan to fight climate change.

Cameron, who has been vegan for four years, spoke at a climate change summit in Los Angeles earlier this week about the impact of food systems and diet on climate change.

In an exclusive interview with Fortune, Cameron explains:

This message is crucial because many people who care about the environment still have no idea that raising animals for food is so incredibly destructive.
