The secular progressive Left means well. They have all the best intentions. We should give them that much credit, should we not, gentle readers? Even though it’s a favor they are entirely unwilling to reciprocate. But you know what they say about good intentions, right? Something about paved roads and hell, etc., if I recall.
PARIS (AFP) – Man’s best friend could be one of the environment’s worst enemies, according to a new study which says the carbon pawprint of a pet dog is more than double that of a gas-guzzling sports utility vehicle.
“Owning a dog really is quite an extravagance, mainly because of the carbon footprint of meat,” Barrett said.
Cats have an eco-footprint of about 0.15 hectares, slightly less than driving a Volkswagen Golf for a year, while two hamsters equates to a plasma television and even the humble goldfish burns energy equivalent to two mobile telephones.
And pets’ environmental impact is not limited to their carbon footprint, as cats and dogs devastate wildlife, spread disease and pollute waterways, the Vales say.
As with buying a car, humans are also encouraged to take the environmental impact of their future possession/companion into account.
“Rabbits are good, provided you eat them,” said Robert Vale.
The secular progressive movement, here wearing its radical environmentalist face, is one that requires control over every aspect of your life. From your mode of transport, your diet, your lightbulbs, child rearing, pets, etc., to the politically correct words you use and thoughts you think. The list is nigh endless. Like Islam, it is total. And that’s because your normal, human behaviour isn’t conducive to their dream of a Leftist Utopia. This secular religion of the Left can only achieve the earthly paradise they seek through your external change in behaviour, and that external change is effectuated by compulsion of law (unlike christianity, whose road to paradise is purely voluntary and attained through inner change). And they will compel you to make that change, make no mistake about it. Just like Islam. Because behind every law is the threat of force. Their “morality” comes from the top down, and imposed on you by force of law–unlike the morality they falsely accuse you of “imposing” on them.
