Gore, PETA: Ban BBQs

goreJuly 21, 2009 — Santa Monica, CA. Two of the most well-intentioned but polarizing forces on earth, Al Gore and PETA, have joined forces with a common and controversial goal:  Ban all BBQs in the United States.

At a televised press conference held on the steps of the U.S. Capitol building this morning, the two urged Americans to cease all BBQing for the foreseeable future.  On the one hand, Al Gore claims the smoke and heat generated from BBQ grills are contributing to global warming and will further widen the hole in the ozone layer.  On the other, PETA considers BBQing to be one of the top killers of animals worldwide.
