Mccartney Urges 'Veggies' To Give Up Fish

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY is calling on fish-eating 'vegetarians' to give up all seafood for Earth Day on Tuesday (22May08).
The meat-free former Beatle has issued a statement urging the world to go veggie for the greenest day of the year - and he's also targeting those who call themselves vegetarians, and then eat fish.
MCCartney wants to remind everyone that the commercial fishing industry is killing off fish species which are vital to the environment.
He says, "Unfortunately, many people seem to think that vegetarians eat fish, but this is not so.
"When you consider the overfishing, the marine pollution, and the huge damage to our precious oceans that are caused by commercial fishing, it becomes obvious that a (complete) vegetarian lifestyle would greatly improve our environment and help to save our oceans."

Once again IT WILL NOT SAVE ANY WORLD EVIROMENT AT ALL, DON'T BE NAIVE! This man is INSANE!!!! But we cannot just eat Macdonald's fries for the rest of our lifes because it's not a proper meal. Give up eating fish and meat? I say NEVER!!!! Most of the people cannot survive without eating meat not even for just one f**king day and Good Friday is one example!!!!!

You know, before becoming a vegetarian, I didn't realize that eating meat really does devastate the condition of our environment. I wish more people understood how wasteful it is to raise animals for food and deplete our other natural resources which alone could be used to feed A LOT more people. Not to mention the cruelty involved in using animals as food and commodities. Sir Paul is absolutely right on target with this issue.
