Bummer: Your Pets Are Mucho Evil For Climate Change

This has been mentioned before, but like every idea for the crackhead cult of climate change, they keep going to the same well again and again

A modest proposal: reduce pets for a sustainable future

With the world’s resources under increasing pressure, Erik Assadourian argues that pet ownership needs a drastic rethink. Could sharing and repurposing pets be the way forward?

Seriously, sharing pets? And Warmists get upset when we call them wackos?

As our pets increasingly adopt the consumer habits of their owners, it’s clear that no matter how “green” this industry becomes, it will never become sustainable. But even if we severely restrict what pet products can be sold, and even if we stop overfeeding our increasingly overweight pet populations – 53% of dogs and 58% of cats are overweight or obese in the US, according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention – can pets be part of a sustainable future? (snip)

At the same time, marketing of pets and pet products should be tightly regulated (or banned outright), and polluting veterinarian services like chemotherapy should be reserved only for service animals. Sorry, but if Bangladeshis (and much of the world’s population) cannot afford advanced healthcare, should Fido? Not in a world of limited resources.

Isn’t it interesting that the solutions always revolve around more Government?

So fast forward to a climate disrupted future, which the new IPCC report suggests is coming faster than we thought. Where do pets fit in? When climate change disrupts grain supplies, shoots food prices through the roof and also eviscerates the global consumer economy, pets may be abandoned in droves, as families suddenly can no longer afford their upkeep. We’ve seen this happen in times of economic crises, hence the large feral dog population in Detroit today. But perhaps at that point the pet issue will solve itself – as these packs of dogs become a bridge food for the hungry unemployed masses.

And, now we get the recommendation to eat the pets.

Imagine, for example, if the pet culture shifted away from owning one or more pets per household to more of a “time-share” or Zipcar model? Reserving a play date with your favorite Golden Retriever once a week would reduce pet ownership — and the resulting economic and environmental costs — dramatically as people felt comfortable occasionally playing with a shared pet instead of owning one. … [A] few services that promote pet sharing among pet lovers do already exist, like the online pet sharing platform, Pets to Share.

These people are just nuts.

    This is perhaps the wackiest thing I have ever heard. Pets to Share? Really? Apparently they have no idea what owning a pet is about. (actually, for true pet owners- it’s quite the opposite- they own you) You become dependent on their companionship; you bond with them and play with them and feed them and sleep with them. They are as much a part of your family as anyone is. And when they die, you grieve for them.
    You don’t have them once a freakin week and give them back to some inane Pet Share operation. What’s next? “Children to Share” for the conscientious global warmists who believe in population control????

  2. Good grief, what will they think of next?
