What's Your Carbon Footprint? Don't Forget Fido

Here's a website to calculate your "carbon footprint," the "amount of carbon dioxide emitted through the combustion of fossil fuels; in the case of an individual or household, as part of their daily lives." Check here to find out how to reduce your carbon footprint, and check here to find out how to offset your carbon footprint.

From today's NY Sun, comes an interesting article "
What's Your Paw Print?", about the carbon footprint of people's dogs, who often use lots of carbon in pet owners' air-conditioned apartments and houses during the summer, and lots of carbon in the production of pet food and the "tin" containers, etc.

"When calculating one's carbon footprint, dog owners should add an extra individual, or two or three, to their household size."

And what is the point of feeding "natural/organic" food to animals that lick the behinds of other animals, drink from toilets, sniff up dirty curbs and sidewalks, and chew on shoes and rugs which contain dyes and other chemicals?"

Then again 'GLOBAL WARMING': AN OFFICIAL PSEUDOSCIENCE so I guess this site is a lot like those sites trying to foist off junk on old folks who are bored and have nothing else to do...
