"Gore No More"

Even PETA realizes Al Gore doesn't practice what he preaches. Perhaps he can purchase some carbon credits from them to "offset" his meat-eating "addiction". Via Drudge:

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. In its letter, PETA points out that Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth—which starkly outlines the potentially catastrophic effects of global warming and just won the Academy Award for “Best Documentary”—has failed to address the fact that the meat industry is the largest contributor to greenhouse-gas emissions.

[..] PETA also reminds Gore that his critics love to question whether he practices what he preaches and suggests that by going vegetarian, he could cut down on his contribution to global warming and silence his critics at the same time.
So, according to PETA, if Al Bore turns vegan, it's okay if he continues to suck up more energy in a month than most people do in a whole year, though he predicts the planet will soon reach boiling temperatures if the rest of us don't stop heating our homes and driving to work? On the other hand, if he reduces his extravagant footprint by going vegetarian, there will be less incentive for him to purchase carbon credits from himself.

That doesn't make sense.

If we don't eat the cows, chickens and pigs, they will just add to global warming with all that farting they like to do. I don't know if fish fart or not. I never heard a fish fart, doesn't mean they don't fart.Something I should research some day.

If all we eat is beans, cauliflower, brocoli and the like we will be doing a fair amount more farting. Maybe we should be banning those products.
