In 2013, Al Gore became a vegan aligning his action with his environmental ethics.
“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.”1Loria, J. 2017.
