Moby bashes Live Earth burgers
He questions the burden of meat production
Moby has unleashed another of his famed rants - this time targeting organisers, and fans, at last weekend's Live Earth concerts who felt the need for a protein-based pick-me-up.

The singer, a long time supporter of eco issues and animals rights, complains this week on his website blog that people are failing to realise the amount of energy required to put meat products on the menu, and that Live Earth's burger-heavy menu did little to help the matter.

"The one thing that still stuns me, though, is that almost no-one in the 'stop global warming' camp talks about the environmental ramifications of animal production. To quote a U.N. article: Rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars," he says.

"At the Live Earth concerts people were eating hamburgers and hot dogs and chicken, which is akin to getting drunk at the funeral for someone who died of alcohol poisoning. It's just depressing that some huge truths about climate change are too inconvenient."
