Paul McCartney wants partnership with Pam Anderson

Sir Paul Mccartney Pam AndersonSir Paul McCartney has written a letter to Pamela Anderson asking her for help. McCartney wants to form a partnership with the former Baywatch star in the hope of raising awareness of how bad meat-eating is for the environment. “Dear Pamela. We are sending this letter because both of us share a concern for our planet’s welfare and hope you will find the following information of interest,” he wrote. “The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that ‘changes in lifestyle and behaviour patterns can contribute to climate change mitigation across all sectors.’ A significant reduction in emissions can be brought about through changes in diet. The single most effective act is to become vegetarian or reduce meat consumption. Unfortunately, with higher incomes, societies are turning to greater consumption of animal protein, which reduces the availability of food grains for direct consumption by impoverished human beings. We are, therefore, writing this letter not because vegetarianism is a fad or an emotional issue but because it is a very attractive option for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and stabilising the earth’s climate and ensuring food security.” McCartney became a vegetarian over 30 years ago with his late wife, Linda. ~movi_alex

    agree with Sir Paul re vegetarianism, been there, tried it, ended up with reduced consumption…

    and…hopefully someone will tell Pamela to cover up…she’s in very grave danger of making the “Scantily Clad Unfit Non-Model Moms” list this year…

    I wish I had an increased income!!
    I eat meat maybe twice a month, chicken twice a week, fish whenever….(mostly in the summer). And I love my veggies – I’m not a vegitarian (been there (10 yrs) done that too…ended up feeling like ca-ca).
    Good on you for trying to make the world a better place.
    I use natural cleaning products (earth friendly) and recycle and don’t litter. I can’t give up my little bit of meat I do eat.

    I don’t know about completely cutting meat out of my diet but it would be great if restaurants offered some really tasty and healthy veggie options. I have been to many steak houses and other restaurants over the past 20 years and not one ever has prepared veggies that were edible. mostly i think they just put them there to add color to the plate.

    Fast food that is healthy too 🙂 I myself just don’t have time to prepare meals ahead of time with my busy work schedule. It would be a great change of pace to be able to pick something up on the go that doesn’t have a litre of fat dripping off it and is still bleeding (over exageration but you get the point)

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years. I haven’t had a cold or any other sickness in years. I have lots of energy – excluding meat made me feel healthier. And knowing it’s helping the environment (I’ve read articles/books that support that theory) is a bonus.

    Mike, I know what you mean about steakhouses not offering great veggies.. I’ve been working in one for the last 6 years and when I first started there was next to nothing for meatless options. I mean, its a little contradictory for a steakhouse to have extensive options for vegetarians.. being a STEAKhouse.. But you’d think they’d at least have some. The only things meatless on our menu are two appetizers, 3 salads, and mushroom fajitas.

    Monique, I think thats great how much you’re doing 🙂 I don’t think you need to completely cut out what little meat you do eat… They’re not asking for complete vegetarianism, just meat-consumption reduction!
    Everyone can do their small part!

    Well, I’m very healthy too….and I am and always will be a meat eater. No better source of protein! I do eat it in moderation. Usually 1 or 2 portions a day. I don’t understand how eating meat “reduces the availability of food grains for direct consumption by impoverished human beings”..?? Wouldn’t the animals eat the grains if they were kept alive? Wouldn’t the world be over-populated with animals if none were killed for food? I recycle, walk when possible, reduce my homes power consumption, etc…but, I won’t give up my steaks, etc. As for the steakhouses and other restaurants, they sell baked potatoes, french fries, salads, fettucini alfredo and other pastas, rice, etc…don’t they? Alot more vegetarian choices than they had 10 years ago.

    Lobster and a steak with steamed veggies. now that is a perfect meal.

  8. Nancy • May 2, 2009 @ 9:01 AM

    Surf & turf all the way. Right on davide!

    Do I have to be one to say it? Cannabalism!

    I mean, isn’t that what it is when someone likes Pam eats veggies? 😉

    All kidding aside, almost all, there are consequences for any action and to swing in the opposite direction out of reaction only creates an equal effect but from the opposite direction.

    What we need is balance and moderation not extremism. 🙂

    And if all else fails, cannabalism. LOL. Had to slip that in there.

  10. tributegirl • May 3, 2009 @ 6:48 PM

    Excellent comment, Dogmeat, and I LOVED your comment about Pam & the veggies! Yes, I would call that cannabalism! LOL

  11. demigod • May 3, 2009 @ 7:01 PM

    Vegetarianism IS extremism. Where’s the balance/moderation?

  12. tributegirl • May 3, 2009 @ 7:10 PM

    Exactly, demigod, and I think that’s what Dogmeat was saying.

  13. Arnold • May 4, 2009 @ 9:07 PM

    Ivory and Jugs. Together in perfect harmony.

  14. Minerva • May 6, 2009 @ 12:52 AM

    I’m an animal lover and don’t will any of them to be killed. But I don’t quite understand the concept of reducing the consumption of meat being a contribution to the environment. Weren’t they accusing all the cows of farting holes in the ozone and creating excess methane gas at one time??? Doesn’t sound like a treat to the environment to me.

  15. .. • May 8, 2009 @ 2:53 AM

    yeah but thats the cows fault, if we eat the cows then we will be the ones farting holes into the ozone layer, then it will be OUR fault!
