AGW Today: All Dogs Must Be Eaten!

Will Lassie be the next thing on the Climate Alarmists hit list?

The eco-pawprint of a pet dog is twice that of a 4.6-litre Land Cruiser driven 10,000 kilometres a year, researchers have found.

Victoria University professors Brenda and Robert Vale, architects who specialise in sustainable living, say pet owners should swap cats and dogs for creatures they can eat, such as chickens or rabbits, in their provocative new book Time to Eat the Dog: The real guide to sustainable living.

The couple have assessed the carbon emissions created by popular pets, taking into account the ingredients of pet food and the land needed to create them.

“If you have a German shepherd or similar-sized dog, for example, its impact every year is exactly the same as driving a large car around,” Brenda Vale said.

I can’t wait till someone does the same type of study on babies. Maybe liberals would stop breeding, thereby creating a future situation where we will all be left in peace from this wackos. Even cats are not immunu

They found cats have an eco-footprint of 0.15ha — slightly less than a Volkswagen Golf. Hamsters have a footprint of 0.014ha — keeping two of them is equivalent to owning a plasma TV.

I bet bison, pandas, and other animals that the eco’s have tried to reintroduce and increase in population are not AGW friendly. Maybe we should let species die off? Or, hey, maybe we should just wipe out the big animals around the world. Elephants are probably the equivalent of Al Gore’s yacht. A herd of wildebeest certainly put out as much CO2 as Barry does as he jets around the country and world campaigning.

Oh, hey, we could all go cannibal! That would reduce Man’s eco-footprint.
