Al Gore: Go Organic and Eat Less Meat to Save the Planet

When you look at Al Gore, are “organic” and “quasi-vegan” the first words that come to mind?

From Politico:

Al Gore wants society to ditch meat-heavy diets and go organic to combat global warming.

“Industrial agriculture is a part of the problem,” Gore said Friday during an interview with FearLess Revolution founder Alex Bogusky. “The shift toward a more meat-intensive diet,” the clearing of forest areas in many parts of the world in order to raise more cattle and the reliance on synthetic nitrogen for fertilizer are also problems, he added.

Instead, Gore advocated organic farming and relying on “more productive, safer methods that put carbon back in the soil” to produce “safer and better food.”

So remember to be more like Al. The next time you leave one of your mansions, climb into a limo, wave goodbye to your four children, drive to the airport and board your private jet to fly to a conference halfway around the world where you’ll tell everybody to have fewer kids and limit their carbon footprints, make sure your in-flight meal is organic and meatless. That way you’ll have a clear conscience from the knowledge that you just did your part to save the planet.

And, predictably

He compared the struggle against climate skeptics to the fight against racism during the civil rights movement.

Cough. Excuse me.

Gore also called on his side to “win the conversation” in the global warming debate, which isn’t easy for Gore since he refuses to debate anybody on the other side of the argument.

Finally, Don Surber’s Gore vs. Gore is worth a read this weekend.
