Heather Millsm, citing global warming, calls for less meat and dairy consumption

Launching a pro-vegan poster campaign, Heather Mills on Monday accused the meat industry of fueling global warming _ and urged dairy consumers to imagine that the milk in their coffee was actually from a rat, a cat, or a dog.
Mills focused on the environmental impact of deforestation and livestock on global warming, citing figures from animal rights group Vegetarians International Voice for Animals (Viva!).
"When (Viva!) told me it was 18 percent, that's more than all global transport, I was in shock. Airplanes only bring 3 percent, while they are being picked on with taxes," she told a crowd at Speakers' Corner in London's Hyde Park.
Mills, the 39-year-old estranged wife of Paul McCartney, said milk consumption was completely irrational.
"It's mad that we are having cow's milk. Even cows don't drink it after one year but we continue forever," she said.
"Why aren't we drinking rat's milk, or dog's milk, or cat's milk, that's how crazy it is."
Mills features in a poster campaign for Viva! to be shown in different parts of Britain, sweating as she lies on a patch of scorched earth with the headline: "Hey, Meaty, you're making me so hot!"
