Eco-friendly pop star Moby has hit out at the organisers of the LIVE EARTH concerts for selling meat at the events. The vegan musician's complaint echoes that of animals rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who claim meat production massively damages the environment. Moby writes on his blog, "The one thing that still stuns me, though, is that almost no-one in the 'stop global warming' camp talks about the environmental ramifications of animal production. To quote a U.N. article: Rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars. "At the Live Earth concerts people were eating hamburgers and hot dogs and chicken, which is akin to getting drunk at the funeral for someone who died of alcohol poisoning. "It's just depressing that some huge truths about climate change are too inconvenient.

While I wish to send thanks for your coverage, I note that the following line is a little misleading:"The vegan musician's complaint echoes that of animals rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who claim meat production massively damages the environment."Actually, it is the United Nations, not PETA, who claim that. PETA just cites the UN information. Anybody interested in reading the UN report from November 2006, which said that livestock is the number one contributor to global warming, above even transport, should Google "Livestock's Long Shadow."
