PETA Supports Al Gore’s Internet Initiative

Al Gore

Well … kind of. The former veep, unsatisfied with having invented the Internet itself, is now attempting to create a new domain-name suffix “.eco” for use by individuals, organizations, and companies that promote environmentally friendly causes. We think this is such a great idea that we plan to be first in line to use the new suffix that Al and Dot Eco LLC have teamed up to try to create—for our Web site OffsetAlGore.eco.

Sure, we already have the wildly popular OffsetAlGore.com, where you can go to compensate for some of the carbon and methane that Al Gore releases into the atmosphere every time he eats one of his daily Angus steak dinners or lunches by pledging to go vegetarian for 30 days. But OffsetAlGore.eco has such a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

Click here to read PETA’s letter to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (the corporation that approves new domain names) expressing wholehearted support for the opportunity to introduce legions of people to the idea that the harm their sea kitten sticks and pepperoni pizza inflict on the environment may be the most inconvenient truth of all.

    It’s great that everyone is callingout Al gore on this.

  • Brien Comerford says:

    AL Gore never accentuates the importance of saving endangered species nor does he ever denounce cruelty against animals. He also supports abortion.

  • vegancoin says:

    Algore like countless american citizens is too chicken to go vegetarian. Please recognize that actions do speak louder than words. From PETA Offset Al Gore’s EcoUnfriendly Diet! “Since Gore’s addiction to meat is apparently stronger than his desire to secure a better future for our planet we’re asking those who recognize that actions speak louder than words to help offset Gore’s greenhousegas emissions by pledging to go vegetarian for 30 days.”

    httpwww.treehugger.comfiles200809surveymeateating.php This is why I frankly could care less about global warming and just try to pollute less myself. Too many people using they’re own facts to justify they’re own goals. Eat no meat eat less meat eat more sardines to decresae the affordability of sardines for pigs feed. TOO MANY STUDIES!!!!! head explodes
