According to a recent piece in the New York Post, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg paid a visit to Morton’s Steakhouse in downtown Brooklyn, “but refrained from eating any meat and was ‘strictly vegetarian.'”

Think Bloomberg has been talking to our friend Chris P. Carrot? Chris P. and Bloomberg are both politicians fighting to make our planet a little greener, so it only makes sense that they would run in the same circles—or at least run into each other occasionally. I know Chris P. hasn’t won any elections (yet), but there’s no denying that the guy’s full of great advice on the green front. Bloomberg might be paying attention to Chris P. when the über-tuber says that going vegetarian is one of the best things that we can do for the environment.
