Glenn Beck on Al Gore
Glenn Beck, love ‘im or hate ‘im, took on the topic of Al Gore’s meat-eating ways in a rant that was accompanied by some powerful images toward its end of meat-eating-environmentalist-celebrity-types. He invited Matt Prescott of PETA to join him, and though Beck clearly is wanting in the compassion department, at least he went on national television to discuss his "meat footprint."
PETA and Animal Person have ranked on Gore for his hypocrisy, but that’s easy, as we’re already on the side of ending meat-eating (or at least I am). And we’ve been addressing the connection between diet and global warming for a year. But for someone like Beck, who reaches millions (and those millions will never agree with PETA or me about anything) to be able to recognize dishonesty–and admit to his own culpability regarding global warming–is a good sign. Perhaps outting the hypocrisy of so-called environmentalists will embarrass them into changing their climate-changing ways.
Help the environment, the animals, your health, and your karma. Stop eating meat.
