Ecozealots: Another Antihumanist Agenda

Why is it that the climate activists never have a policy that I can get behind? I am actually pro environmental sustainability and want to protect nature but at the same time I realize that the best way to do that is with economic and technological success.

Somehow the ecozealots see the way forward as making life more and more difficult, difficult to the level of being anthropocidal. Eliminate fossil fuels, ignore nuclear, demonize pesticides, limit farming and fertilizers, and abolish meat. The underlying conviction is that anything that would promote population health is to be condemned.

With a blind belief in Ehrlich and a nod to Malthus, they think that wealth and health will promote an exponential population growth while the actual observations show the opposite. As countries get wealthier their populations come under control, a worldwide phenomenon.

And now they are coming for your pets!

Pet Ownership is Now Under Attack by Unhinged Climate Extremists – Says Dogs and Cats are Part of the Climate Problem

In an effort to lessen their “carbon pawprint,” unhinged climate activists are now advocating for the death of millions of dogs and cats worldwide.

An article published by CNN claims that dogs, cats, and other household pets that regularly consume meat contribute to “global warming.”

You can’t make this up.

“Our four-legged friends don’t drive gas-guzzling SUVs or use energy-sucking appliances, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a climate impact. In fact, researchers have showed that pets play a significant role in the climate crisis,” according to a recent CNN column.

“But what do Barkley and Whiskers have to do with our warming planet? It’s the products we buy for them that need a closer look,” the outlet added.

The news outlet added that most of the carbon pawprint comes from their diet, which is extremely high in meat and so requires a lot of resources (including energy, land, and water) to create.

The manufacturing of pet food also results in a significant quantity of greenhouse gas emissions.

“According to a 2017 study, feeding dogs and cats creates the equivalent of around 64 million tons of carbon dioxide in the US each year. That’s roughly the same impact as 13.6 million cars on the road. And, if our furry friends formed a separate country, it would rank 5th in global meat consumption behind China, the US, Brazil and Russia, according to UCLA professor and author of that study Gregory Okin,” CNN stated.

The far-left outlet is now advocating for pet owners to “do an assessment of your pet’s diet, cut out waste, and adopt responsibly.”

The Gateway Pundit reported last June that the New Zealand government unveiled plans to charge livestock a ‘burping tax to control climate change.’

From livestock to laughing stock.

The country, with more cows and sheep than people combined, released a draft plan to put a tax on belching sheep and cattle in an effort to contain ‘greenhouse gas emissions.’

Yes, you read it right. New Zealand is the first country to have farmers pay for gas emissions from livestock by 2025, the Ministry for Environment announced. The proposed plan also includes “incentives” for farmers who reduce these emissions through feed additives.

The new proposal will likely affect food prices including beef, mutton, and dairy.
