    Time to Eat the Dog: The Real Guide to Sustainable Living

    Tip: PajamasMedia


    New Zealanders Robert and Brenda Vale — self-described specialists in sustainable living at Victoria University in Wellington — charge that the carbon paw-print of a pet dog is double that of an SUV driving 6,200 miles a year, while a pet cat has an eco claw-print slightly less than driving a Volkswagen Golf for a year. Confirming these results, John Barrett of the Stockholm Environment Institute in York, Britain, said, “Owning a dog really is quite an extravagance.” Pets’ detrimental impact on the environment is not limited to their carbon footprint, the Vales insist; if permitted to roam, predatory dogs and cats devastate wildlife (squirrels, birds, frogs) while their fecal matter spreads bacteria and disease in rivers and streams, killing aquatic life.

    Yar, but dogs are more useful.

    Kill the cats first.

    I wish this stupid cat would roam. She just sits underfoot, waiting for me to feed her...

    Cats are clever. They know a soft sucker when they meet one. Be more of a biatch, Em. :lol:
