CNN blames pets for climate change impacts, insects for dog food

The latest scapegoat for climate change is your lovable dog and cuddly cat. According to CNN, pets have a negative impact on climate change. CNN gave green advice on how to reduce your pets’ “carbon paw footprint,” including feeding your canine companion “insect-based food” and adopting small rodents instead of dogs.

Late last month, CNN published one article entitled: “Our pets are part of the climate problem. These tips can help you minimize their carbon footprint.” The article went largely unnoticed until CNN further circulated the article social media — where it was widely ridiculed.

CNN claimed that pets “play a significant role in the climate crisis.”

The outlet argued that meat-heavy pet diets are accelerating climate change.

The cited article a Study 2017 which claimed that feeding cats and dogs has the same carbon impact as 13.6 million cars on the road.

The author acknowledged that you don’t have to eliminate your furry friend, but you should adopt climate-friendly practices when it comes to owning a pet.

CNN advised pet owners to feed their dogs lab-grown meat and insects. The article stated that “insect-based pet food” is a nutritious source of protein.

The author suggests collecting your dog’s excrement and disposing of the feces in a toilet.

The article recommends cat owners to use an eco-friendly non-clay cat litter.

CNN instructed people on what kind of dog they should have.

“So you might consider smaller races or species if you’re aiming to minimize your impact on the planet,” the article reads. “The carbon pawprint of a Chihuahua, for example, will be much smaller than that of a St. Bernard.”

In fact, CNN is advising people not to adopt a dog at all, and instead get a smaller animal with a lower carbon footprint — like birds, turtles, and small rodents.

Reactions on Twitter berated and derided the CNN article.

actor James Woods explained, “OK. That’s it. Enough is enough. These liberal maniacs are after our guns, our cars, our money, our kids, but if they’re after our furry Schnoot burgers, then so be it. Continue to play!”

writer Ian Miles Cheong wrote on Twitter: “Conservationists: ‘Kill your pets. This will eliminate their carbon footprint.’”

Singer Phil Labonte said, “PETA and climate activists will get your dog.”

A Twitter user pointed outCNN gets worse every day. Dogs and cats generally eat the parts of meat that humans don’t eat, so I don’t see how that makes any sense at all.”

A commenter added“Vanderbilt Cooper will still be flying around in his private jet, but you want us to get rid of Fido to stop climate change.” CNN blames pets for climate change impacts, insects for dog food
