Today on NOTALOTOFPEOPLEKNOWTHAT:
Fluffy and Fido are ruining the environment. According to a study out of UCLA.
YES! I predicted this months ago. When the push to remove meat from our diets was revived, I kept noting that dogs and cats are huge consumers of meat—especially cats. They have higher quality meat food than many humans. So when are the enviros and global warming advocates going to say “Your pet goes vegetarian or your pet goes. Keeping your meat-eating pet is evil and you’re a bad person for doing so”? The day arrived.
Okay, the article doesn’t quite say that. It does clearly imply this. Worse, those fluffy critters are given 25 to 30% of the blame for meat consumption. This makes Fido and Fluffy clear threats to the future of this planet. You pet owners are so very selfish and uncaring out there. Time to dump the pets and save the planet. (Yes, we know you think Fido is a member of the family. You can keep Fido until he dies, but NO MORE PETS if you care about the planet.)
It is possible you could have a hamster or guinea pig, something that does not eat meat. However, keep in mind that there have been suggestions that eating such things as mice and rats could provide meat without the environmental impact. Your pet could become some true believer’s next meal if things get dicey. Best to just get a pet rock. Those are much more environmentally friendly.
Lack of pets will give you all more time to sit and watch the latest Al Gore fiction and reflect on why saving the planet matters if life on the planet is so dreary and useless without pets, cars, planes and lights.
