Meat Eating Causes Global Warming

Via Classical Values PETA has a beef with Al Gore:
" Norfolk, Va. -- This morning, PETA sent a letter to former vice president Al Gore explaining to him that the best way to fight global warming is to go vegetarian and offering to cook him faux "fried chicken" as an introduction to meat-free meals..."
(...)
"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."
I can't help but wonder, as Classical Values does, just why are environmentalists ignoring this? How come no one has talked about the horrors of the evil corporate farmer raising his livestock and destroying the environment...

Better watch out for those farming deniers that refuse to accept the reality that global warming is real and unless we get farmers under control Iceland will melt, New York will flood, Africa will turn into the surface of the sun, and Al Gore will start wearing one piece bathing suits as outdoor wear.

    Well I guess its a good thing our ancestors got rid of all the buffalo when they first arrived in North America. Just imagine how hot it would be if they didn't

  3. Global warming has been hitting countries across the globe. Wether we like it or not it is the reality that we are going to face.

    But there is still hope, if we just make one step at a time to solve this problem.

    Going for Hybrid and Biofuels could be a great factor in reducing pollutants.

    For 100% emission free, Electric Cars is the ultimate solution. Lets go for green and help save the planet.

  4. Usually my numero uno rule with blog comments, is that if the comment doesn't add anything to the debate at hand, it doesn't belong.

    In the case of 'chalacuna's comment above I made an exception to that rule.

    Chalacuna, with no disrespect intended, didn't even bother to read my blog post by the looks of it.

    Nowhere does he even address the point of the blog post: meat eating causes global warming.

    But usually comments like these are preceded by some sort of abusive comment... like someone calling me "creationist" or a "hypocrite" or a "F------ moron!" (Note I'm not a creationist, but I think it helps some people to think I'm am so they continue living in their cozy little world)

    Ok, I'm rambling at this point. Chalacuna didn't insult me. So I let his comment go. But if this starts to get something normal I'll push the 'reject' button.
