What's worse for the environment dogs or SUV's

What if you own a dog and a SUV?

I already answered that on Cafe Hayek.

If you've ever owned a cat, you know they're 100 times worse for the environment than dogs AND SUVs.

  1. They shed like crazy. Cat hair takes 5 million years to decompose, can choke small animals, and is not recyclable.
  2. Their shit is one of the most toxic substances known to man. Saddam Hussein's army used tons of the stuff to manufacture deadly gas for his WMD's.
  3. Their piss is more caustic than hydrocloric acid. not only does it breaks down seals along sewer pipes, it also kills any kind of vegetation it encounters. Cat piss is nature's most powerful and unforgiving defoliant. One drop of it in a lake can kill three million metric tons of algae in less than 72 hours.
  4. 167 trillion pounds of cat litter ends up in landfills every year. The high nitrogen content of the dirty litter reacts with other decomposing matter to create unprecedented amounts of greenhouse gases. (Spent cat litter is melting our glaciers and causing hurricanes.) Exhibit A: Egypt was once a lush emerald land of plenty. Egyptians started worshiping cats. Within ten years, Egypt was a desert wasteland.
  5. Cats don't taste very good, their bones take as long to decompose as their hair, and have been known to cause internal bleeding and even death in sea mammals like baby doplhins.
  6. Cat breath kills babies.

Hard science.
