Warmists hate not only humans, but the dogs that love them

Matt Smith is a journalism lecturer and thus, of course, a global warmist of the more puritanical kind:

Serving up Fido as an entree might be a bit extreme, but one of the most effective ways you can make an impact on your ecological footprint is by not owning a dog… When it comes to an ecological footprint, a dog is the equivalent of two Toyota LandCruisers…

The fact that a family pet is such a way of life in the Australian culture is damage enough. Even if we widened our palate to include dogs, that wouldn’t stop people owning pets…

What would be most effective is for people to think hard before buying a pet. It might be better to grow some plants instead. At least plants are edible.

Humans must not only deny themselves children, but love on four legs. Dogs must go, too – turned into dinner, if need be.

So for whom or what are these warmists actually saving the planet?

UPDATE

And does Smith pick on dogs, and not on those mega-farting whales:

Scientists have photographed a giant gas bubble emanating from a whale, suggesting that flatulence is just as common for ocean mammals as it is for humans and many other terrestrial animals.

That’s a whole LandCruiser of gas right there. Seems the Japanese whalers are doing us a favor by saving the planet.

TonyfromOz adds…..

I want you to think about this for a minute. Whales are animals, as are cows. There are currently moves in politics to place a cost on the emissions of cows, and graziers are being legislated with a cost for those emissions. They’re animals, so they have no control over what they do. Yet one animal is having legislation passed so money can be made from those emissions. Please do not tell me that this is about the environment. It’s just about the money.

UPDATE 2

What’s a tree’s scream, when there’s a Green to elect?

UPDATE 3

JoNova says UN schemes to plant more trees may be rorted by Indonesians to fund the chopping down of forests.
