Energy-Guzzling Meat Industry Deserves Much of the Blame for Oil Spills and Other Environmental Devastation, Says Group
For Immediate Release:April 30, 2010
Mobile, Ala. -- Emblazoned with the slogan "Meat on Your Grill Equals Oil Spill," PETA's airplane-towed banner will fly over downtown Mobile from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday. PETA's point? That raising animals for food causes environmental devastation on a massive scale and that oil spills--such as the one now spreading off the U.S. Gulf Coast following the explosion of an offshore oil rig--can be blamed in large part on the oil-guzzling meat industry.
Where: Water Street, between Government and St. Francis streets, downtown Mobile When: Friday, April 30, 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
"In addition to causing the suffering and painful deaths of billions of animals, the meat and fishing industries are gluttons for energy," says PETA Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Going vegan is the best thing that you can do to help animals, safeguard your health, and help prevent oil spills."
According to a study published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it takes more than 10 times as much fossil fuel to produce a calorie of animal protein as it takes to produce the same amount of plant protein. Also, researchers at the University of Chicago determined that switching to a vegan diet is more effective at countering climate change than switching from a standard car to a Toyota Prius.
