It would seem that PETA expects electric car drivers to be those who'd rather go naked than wear fur... or something like that. In any case, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is urging the City of Boston to place ads with green eggs and ham chickens that tout a meat-free vegan lifestyle.
Why Boston? The East Coast city has announced plans to install three electric vehicle chargers in busy metropolitan areas in the first quarter of 2011, which is part of an overall goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25 percent by 2020.

PETA has confirmed that the capital of Massachusetts isn't the only city that will be contacted. As other large U.S. cities roll out their own EV charging plans, they can apparently count on receiving similar unsolicited overtures from the animal rights group. Somehow, we have a feeling few if any municipalities will actually take up PETA on its suggestion – unless they're paying for the ads, of course.
