Moby Hits Live Earth for Selling Meat

Moby has hit out at organisers of the Live Earth concerts for selling meat at the shows.

Speaking through his blog, the vegan dance veteran quoted the UN statistic that livestock breeding and the gases the animals emit is a huge contributor to worldwide the greenhouse gases in the environment.

He writes: "The one thing that still stuns me... is that almost no one in the 'stop global warming' camp talks about the environmental ramifications of animal production. To quote a UN article: 'rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars.'

"Livestock production is responsible for the release of more greenhouse gases than every car or SUV or pickup-truck on the planet."
