PETA mad at Al for chewing on a cow

Remember? Cow farts are deadly!

Why question just Al Gore’s diet? Why not point out all the other hypocrisies associated with his climate crusade, such as his excessive home energy use and his use of private jets to travel the world in order to give his several-thousand-dollar PowerPoint presentation on how WE AMERICANS can cut back to save Earth? Eating a hunk of meat is the least of Al’s contradictions. Of course, there’s also the fact that he’s scientifically wrong about AGW, as are his ridiculous predictions of doom.

Al says the “law must change” when it comes to the climate, and this really gets at the heart of what he’s after. He’s a politician, and politicians need a dire situation—real or imagined—to accumulate power through lawmaking. New laws rarely, if ever, require fewer resources from you—the average American, which means you can plan on opening your wallet up.

Global warming for Al means relevancy and cash (ahem, his carbon credit business). What were some of Al’s previous campaigns requiring governmental action and the wastage of your tax dollars? Stamping out $80 hammers, ozone holes, and obscene pop music lyrics (remember Tipper Gore's PMRC?). Once AGW is a forgotten crusade, he’ll find another cause; crafty politicians always do. Don’t be dumb, America. - Pop Tarts: Exclusive: Not So Earth-Friendly? Activists Attack Al Gore - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment:

LOS ANGELES — Look out, Al Gore ... People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says you are refusing to face one very "inconvenient truth."

On Monday, the animal rights organization launched the campaign (conveniently timed for Earth Day) in an attempt to counter the effects that they say the former vice president's meat-laden diet has on Mother Nature.

While reps for Gore had no comment, Pop Tarts confirmed with people who have worked with the ex-veep that he loves his steak and sausage, plus he was notorious for chowing down on the almost all-meat Atkins diet during his run for president.

And he warns that while individual efforts such as changing to low-energy lightbulbs are important, it is more significant for world leaders to change laws to stop pollution pouring into the atmosphere and affecting the climate.
