A few years back, an episode of the quiz show we all love – QI, contestants were shown a photo of a typical happy family with 2 children, a car and a dog. *
The host Sandy Toksvig asked “What could this family do to reduce their carbon footprint?”
The contestant’s answers were “Get rid of the car” = WRONG ANSWER
The correct answer was “Get rid the dog!”
The contestants had no idea that the family dog, fed two predominantly animal meat-based meals a day, was contributing to more carbon emissions that either the car or the human family meals!
As animal lovers and knowing the importance of our pets in our modern lives; getting rid of the dog is definitely not an option to any of us.
