my dog is better than ten environmentalists!
As if any further proof was needed that global warming hysteria was a pretext to invade people's lives and tell them what to do, a "study" -- by so-called "specialists in sustainable living" -- advances the claim that dogs are worse for the environment than SUVs:
PARIS (AFP) - Man's best friend could be one of the environment's worst enemies, according to a new study which says the carbon pawprint of a pet dog is more than double that of a gas-guzzling sports utility vehicle.I think it's time for everyone to say "screw these people!" Just tell them collectively to go pee up a rope and then fuck off.
Anyone who thinks their efforts will be limited to dog eradication is barking (!) up the wrong tree. This is no time for dog owners to act all apologetic and defensive the way some are:
"Everyone should work out their own environmental impact. I should be allowed to say that I walk instead of using my car and that I don't eat meat, so why shouldn't I be allowed to have a little cat to alleviate my loneliness?"Spoken like a groveling slave. Really, some people talk as if they accept without question that the environmentalists are their masters.
For the umpteenth time, this calls not for denial, but defiance.
If we take these crackpot specialists in sustainable living at their word and assume the average dog has an annual footprint of 0.84 hectares, it should be pointed out that by the environmentalists' own calculations, the average American has a footprint of 10.3 hectares.
Which means that according to the environmentalists' own calculations, my dog Coco is more than ten times less wasteful than a single environmentalist.
Environmentalists propose that people eat their dogs. I propose that it would be more ecologically sound for dogs to eat the environmentalists.
Right now, Coco is chowing down on Rachel Ray's brand of dog food (developed for Ray's pit bill Isaboo), but if the environmentalists could simply be ground up and made into dogfood, I would be willing to feed her ten environmentalists per year. Think of the carbon footprints that could be reduced!
It's recycling for a good cause.
