GLENN BECK, HOST: Sometimes, you need a little propaganda, you know, to sell people on global warming. In a hearing this week, Congressman Steve King from Iowa asked environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to confirm or deny ' confirm or deny ' something that Mr. Kennedy allegedly said a few years ago:

REP. STEVE KING, R-IOWA: "Large scale hog producers are a greater threat to the United States and democracy than bin Laden's terrorist network."

Is that an accurate quote?

ROBERT F. KENNEDY, JR. ENVIRONMENTALIST: I don't know if that's an accurate quote, but I believe it and I support it.


BECK: Holy cow. What the question was, "Did you say that pig farms are more dangerous than Usama bin Laden?" He's not sure that he said it, but he agrees with it and he supports it.

Now, here's somebody who actually believes in global warming and actually has the courage of his convictions and will change his life because of it: PETA spokesperson Matt Prescott joins me now.

Matt, I've got to tell you. I had you on my show ' I don't know, about a year or so ago.



BECK: You know, look, here's the thing. I have no problem with people who actually believe in something and are not hypocrites about it, actually will do something in their life. The IPCC report says that animal farms, just if we all became vegans, that we would dramatically change global warming. Do they say it is the fastest solution or the biggest problem or both?

PRESCOTT: It's the biggest contributor to global warming that ' the U.N. report found that the meat industry causes more greenhouse gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, planes, ships ' all of the world's transportation systems combined.
