PAUL McCARTNEY SAYS HE'S DOING ALL HE CAN TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING

12/4/2009

Paul McCartney addressed the European Parliament in Brussels yesterday (December 3rd) and touted his "Meat Free Monday" campaign, according to The Associated Press. McCartney met with Rajendra K. Pachauri, the head of the U.N.'s global climate change panel, and spoke how the production of food is responsible for 20 to 30 percent of greenhouse emissions -- with livestock accounting for half of the emissions.

McCartney told reporters, "I grew up as a kid not eating meat on Fridays. It was part of the rules of the school I went to." He added that with global warming still an active concern there now is an "even more crucial reason" to skip eating meat.


He added that apart from flying to and from his European gigs by plane, he's doing everything he can to prevent global warming: "They haven't invented microphones that work on candle power. I do everything I can. If I go for a car, I go for hybrid. I recycle."


McCartney's opening night show in Hamburg on December 2nd featured the debut of his new song "(I Want To) Go Home" from the new Robert DeNiro-Drew Barrymore movie Everybody's Fine as well as his first performance of the Beatles' "And I Love Her" since 1991 -- along with the live debut of the "Fab Four's" 1968 classic "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da."


McCartney's European mini-tour hits the Netherlands on December 9th.
