    Polluting Pets

    Polluting pets: the devastating impact of man's best friend - Yahoo! News

    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.

    I was shocked in what I read in this article. Even though I don't have a pet now, I totally think they are wonderful!

    Reha Huttin, president of France's 30 Million Friends animal rights foundation says the human impact of eliminating pets would be equally devastating. "Pets are anti-depressants, they help us cope with stress, they are good for the elderly," Huttin told AFP.
    What is your opinion?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    When they're ready to talk about the humans impact, then I'll be ready to listen, in the mean time, I feel that research that determins such trival matters is a waste of money. JMO

    I'd like to know who did the research and who paid for it. There are many more important things to do research on. What a waste of money and time.
