Al Gore, Climate-Killing Carnivore

If Al Gore’s so committed to fighting climate change, why won’t he give up eating meat, wondered Glenn Beck on his TV show. According to Gore’s beloved Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), meat production contributes more to global warming than all modes of transportation combined.
Meat production accounts for about 18% of all climate-changing emissions, compared with transportation which accounts for only about 13% of such emissions, according to the chairman of the IPCC, Rajendra K. Pachauri.
Gore has lauded IPCC again and again, heaping mountains of praise on the group, which doesn’t actually have many climate scientists as members, yet he isn’t willing to go up meat. Addressing Gore, Beck said: “If you’re seriously concerned that the earth has a temperature, why don’t you put down the t-bone and grab a stalk of broccoli.”
Meanwhile, it’s no wonder Gore’s terrified of publicly debating the science of global warming and climate change.
He’s got billions of dollars in potential personal worth on the line.
Even the New York Times has finally noticed how much Gore has at stake. “[F]ew have put as much money behind their advocacy as Mr. Gore and are as well positioned to profit from this green transformation, if and when it comes.”
