PETA To Al Gore: Become A Vegetarian and Save The World

snipshot_cp1dxnd7coat.jpgIn light of recent accusations against Al Gore that he’s not doing enough to “walk the walk”, PETA has a suggestion that could help with that issue: Go vegetarian.

The animal rights group recently sent a letter to the former Vice President encouraging him to drop meat and help curb emissions generated by the livestock industry. From the release,

“The effect that our meat addiction is having on the climate is truly staggering. In fact, in its recent report “Livestock’s Long Shadow—Environmental Issues and Options,” the United Nations determined that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined

The group goes on and points to a recent study conducted at the University of Chicago in which those who switched to a vegan diet did more to combat global warming than those that switched to a hybrid from a conventional gas vehicle.

“‘The single best thing that any of us can do to for our health, for animals, and for the environment is to go vegetarian,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “The best and easiest way for Mr. Gore to show his critics that he’s truly committed to fighting global warming is to kick his meat habit immediately.'”

Poor Al. Now even his eating habits are under attack. Aren’t Oscar winners supposed to be enjoying the praise that follows the winning moment? Seems Gore can’t catch a break. Still, it might not be such a bad idea to give veggies the front and center for awhile. Not only will you cut down on emissions and save animals, but you’ll also get nice and lean for those Martin Scorsese offers that are bound to be flowing in at any moment. Mark my words: Al Gore is the next Alec Baldwin. <grin>
