Gore Says Go Veg!

This just in! Al Gore (a.k.a. “Mr Global Warming” himself) has finally confronted the biggest inconvenient truth of all: that meat-eating is responsible for much of the world's most devastating environmental problems: "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 … You could add in the health consequences as well".

It's obvious when you think about it, isn't it? When you need to feed about 10 kilos of food to a cow just to produce merely one kilogram of ‘beef' (and let's not forget the millions of methane-producing burps and farts let off by the global cattle herd every single day), eating green to save the environment is a no-brainer.

Strangely it took the world's most renowned environmental campaigner three years since producing “An Inconvenient Truth” to realise that you can't be a meat-eating environmentalist. And for some reason, Gore stops short of leaving all animals off his plate, saying that he has now “cut back sharply”. A good step in the right direction for sure, but I guess those of us who care more about animals and the planet than the taste of dead flesh will still need to offset Gore by eating green every day (and really, with food this good – who wouldn't want to!?)

No doubt Gore's new appreciation for environmentally sustainable foods will also help his waste line and keep him campaigning a good few years longer :)

And on that note, Yahoo! News wants to know if you'd go veg to help save the planet. Please vote yes!
