Al Gore

Al Gore went vegan in 2013, prior to that he cut back sharply on the amount of meat he ate, saying “It’s absolutely correct that the growing meat intensity of diets around the world is one of the issues connected to this global crisis — not only because of the CO2 involved, but also because of the water consumed in the process. You could add in the health consequences as well.”
