I first posted this a few weeks ago but it's got renewed interest with Earth Day and with what Sir Paul has to say about vegetarianism and the environment:
What do you think about the fact that most major environmental organizations and the most prominent environmental advocates are omitting vegetarianism from their list of the top ways to help curtail global warming?
“I think itâ€™s very surprising that most major environmental organisations are leaving the option of going vegetarian off their lists of top ways to curtail global warming. Of course there are many powerful businesses which would wish to resist this idea but it is becoming clearer that a simple change in peoplesâ€™ lifestyles could make a major difference to our environment. What is interesting is that nowadays it is so easy to become vegetarian and so many people are reducing meat in their diet. That is a simple but extremely effective step that many people could take to help the environment and improve their own health at the same time.”
Paul McCartney Reveals That Fishing Turned Him Vegetarian
In a new print ad for PETA, Paul McCartney opens up about the first time he realized it was time to pursue a vegetarian lifestyle. From the ad:
â€œMany years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realised, â€˜I am killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me.â€™ â€œSomething inside me clicked. I realised as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him and mine is to meâ€.
