‘Veggie’ is the way to prevent global warming: McCartney

McCartney also recalled the spat his late wife Linda once had with the then President of the World Wildlife Fund, Prince Philip, over the shooting of birds. "She said, `You`re the head of a wildlife organisation, how can you go out shooting birds?`" he said.

"`Are you vegetarian?` he asked, trying to catch us out. `Yeah!`, we both answered. Shooting birds, that`s hypocrisy," he added.
