In a recent ABC News Interview, Al Gore was asked about Glen Beck’s insistence for him to become vegetarian, if he truly wanted to fight global warming.
Gore’s response: ”I’m not a vegetarian, but I have cut back sharply on the meat that I eat,” he said. “It’s absolutely correct that the growing meat intensity of diets around the world is one of the issues connected to this global crisis – not only because of the CO2 involved, but also because of the water consumed in the process.”
Glen Beck has invited PETA on his show numerous times, in an attempt to embarrass Gore and climate change activists at their own game.
Here is Glen Beck with PETA President Ingrid Newkirk last week:
Thankfully most people don’t see the world in the black & white goggles which Beck wears. Anyone can make a significant difference in their carbon footprint with just a small reduction in their diet. The first step and acknowledgement is most important. Whether someone becomes vegetarian or vegan is a whole other challenge and process. Fortunately there are plenty of organizations and online resources/recipes to help you get started!
