CNN ridiculed for blaming pets for impact on climate change, advocating ‘insect-based food’ and adopting small rodents instead of dogs

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

Late last month, CNN published an article titled: “Our pets are part of the climate problem. These tips can help you minimize their carbon pawprints.” The article went largely unnoticed until CNN promoted the article on social media – where it was widely ridiculed.

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

The outlet argued that the meat-heavy diet of pets is accelerating climate change.

The article cited a 2017 study that contended that feeding cats and dogs have the same carbon impact as 13.6 million cars on the road. – READ MORE
