PETA is attacking Al Gore because he eats meat, and in their eyes eating meat makes Mr. Gore an hypocrite in the environmental crusade against global warming.
According to PETA Vice President Bruce Fridrich:
“Mr. Gore likes to be thought of as an environmentalist steak-and-potatoes kind of guy, but there’s no such thing as a meat-eating environmentalist. He needs to confront the ‘inconvenient truth’ that meat production is the main culprit in global warming.”
Be sure to catch that again…”…there’s no such thing as a meat-eating environmentalist.”
I am on record as saying that I believe that Al Gore is completely off in relation to the idea of man-made global warming, and there are a lot of very smart people out there who say that the debate over this whole issue is far from over. But when a fellow steak-eater is attacked, the global warming debate MUST take a back seat to the really important things in life…like a 16 oz rib-eye steak cooked just past medium over a charcoal bbq!
Stand firm, Mr. Gore ! Don’t let PETA get you down.
Remember the meat-eaters motto:
“You can have my steak knife when you pry it from my cold, dead hand!”
