I feel it was only a matter of time until climate change advocate Al Gore took the vegan plunge. It makes sense for the 2007 Nobel Peace Price winner for his documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth" to make this lifestyle change because it is said that the meat industry is a large contributor to this global crisis.
Even after his documentary came out Gore was still sticking to his meat eating ways saying only that he had cut back. But not it seems he is fully committed.
According to the Huffington Post. It was actually in my hometown of St. Louis where he requested a vegan meal at one of my favorite spots, Local Harvest Cafe that had the media stirring about a potential diet change.
Here is a video of an interview Gore did about his vegan diet.
So congrats to Al Gore in joining his election running mate in eating a plant based diet!
