Not sure if it fits this topic, but Paul has also contributed to a children's book, which'll raise money for BBC's Children in Need Appeal. There's going to be an auction of some of the pages.

I quite enjoyed Paul's page; he very cleverly managed to include some things in there that'll go over the kids' heads, but adults will definitely pick up on them.

Thanks for sharing the page, JPM-fangirl. Here's the post in the News thread where I mentioned the book. I'll edit that post to add a link to your post with Paul's page.

Paul McCartney and family pen open letter to David Cameron

The first paragraph

As world leaders prepare to head to the climate conference (COP21) in Paris, Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney have written to David Cameron urging him to include meat reduction in the new global climate agreement.

And, there's a video of Paul speaking about Meat Free Mondays. Lots of sass on display at the beginning an end of the video. ūüôā

I meant to add earlier that I thought it interesting that James isn't a part of the open letter. Is James vegetarian?

Wow, that was incredibly adorable! Thanks for posting it. I read it in a Paul voice... couldn't help it, he wrote just like he speaks. The Beatles reference heart

The video on this page is mostly about the McCartney family's vegetarianism.

http://www.express.co.uk/life-.....-new-video

The video isn't very well edited. Parts get repeated. I quit watching after a while. But, Paul is adorable so the clip is well worth checking out.

I gave up at the repeated Simpsons section. And why on earth do they need to put music over the top and so damn loud as well? We are capable of watching Paul without hearing music for feck sake!!

Paul narrated a video for PETA a few years ago. I was handed the video after one of his concerts. The quote on the package by Paul was "If slaughterhouses had glass walls everyone would be vegetarian". It's kind of a disturbing video, but Paul looks very nice in it.

Here in argentina we use to eat steak/meat everytime we gather round or at special situations and stuff but at paul's concerts there was a lot of vegetarian food sold at stadiums, and people actually liked it, it surprised me.

I eat hotdogs anyway. Haha sorry paul.

Just before the UN Climate Conference in Bonn, Paul, Mary, and Stella created a video in which they call for a meatless Monday to protect the environment:

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

16 years after his birth, Isaac Bashevis Singer has found a new champion: Paul McCartney .

Yes, really. When the Polish Parliament passed a resolution honoring the Nobel Prize-winning author on November 21, the anniversary of his birth, it was thanks to the efforts of the former Beatle.

While rehearsing for a recent concert in Krakow, someone pointed out to McCartney that, like him, Singer had been an outspoken vegetarian. McCartney then wrote to Polish MP Pawel Kukiz*, himself a rock singer, to ask him to commemorate Singer by establishing November 21 as Isaac Bashevis Singer Day in Poland, where Singer was born in 1902.

More at the link.

Or if you can read Hebrew http://yiddish.forward.com/art.....aul-mccar/

*Interesting that Kukiz is the founder of a right-wing political movement in Poland.
