PETA Suggests Tax Breaks for Vegetarians

On May 30, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urging the government to consider allowing vegetarians to get a tax break.

Ms. Newkirk stated the fact that vegetarians are responsible for fewer greenhouse-gas emissions and other kinds of environmental degradation than meat-eaters, and therefore should be rewarded “just as people who purchase a hybrid vehicle enjoy a tax break.”

PETA President cited the U.N. report that stated, “[S]cientists determined that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars, trucks, and [planes] in the world combined.”
