Green stars Al Gore and Sheryl Crow have officially signed on to take part in the U.S. Green Building Council’s 2009 Greenbuild convention.

The event is being held from November 11th to 13th in Phoenix, Arizona and is expecting roughly 30,000 participants. WHOA!!

Gore will deliver the keynote address and nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow will entertain at the opening ceremony at Chase Field on Wednesday, November 11th.

Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council said:

“Al Gore’s impressive career and bipartisan outreach have helped elevate global climate change to the main street public consciousness. The role buildings play in our lives, our health, the economy and the global environment – including being responsible for 39 percent of the carbon emitted in the United States – means the built environment is a tremendous opportunity for us to make real change, and Vice President Gore’s keynote address will be an inspiration to the Greenbuild community to make 2010 yet another banner year for green building innovation and growth.”

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
