Green Dogma

When I said these people were crazy and they would keep trying to control people’s behavior going after everything you like to do,. I was not kidding. Here is the latest example.

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.

PETA believes pet ownership is slavery. They know they can’t sell that so I could see them using this tactic instead. The bottom line is eco-nuts will keep thinking up new things to “recommend” and politicians will adopt their ideas as they see fit unless we put a stop to this insanity. Fight back against the AGW clowns or there will be no end of these stupid laws and taxes. Any politician who agrees with any of this lunacy needs to go.

  1. Both of my cats are rescues. One was from a local shelter and one is a neighborhood stray that had been hit by a car. I’m not giving them up. PeTA can go screw themselves.

  2. 10,000 km works out to about 6,100 miles; pretty wimpy for US drivers. By these calculations, I have pretty much the same carbon footprint whether I drive my muscle car or own a dog. I’ll keep my sportscar.

    I have to wonder what the Professors Vale would think of a German Shepard driving his Land Rover to Colonel Sander’s for a bucket of chicken…
