Sir Paul McCartney has urged Britons to adopt 'meat-free Mondays'

Sir Paul McCartney has called on Britons to adopt "meat-free Mondays" to cut carbon emissions.

The former Beatle said cutting out meat one day a week was popular in Australia, where shoppers had become conscious of the environmental impact of cattle rearing and meat production.

In an interview with trade magazine The Grocer, Sir Paul called on UK consumers to cut down on meat consumption even if they could not give it up altogether.

Hi, This is a great idea of Sir Paul`s and I hope it catches on, not only in the UK, but around the world! Sadly I`m from Australia and this is the first I`ve heard/read of this idea. P.S. I hope this takes (I did answer the "mathsguard" question correctly (1+9=10) the firsat time around but got "bumped" back to try again anyway!
