Dump that Dog and Cat

Is global warming really a top priority in your agenda? Time to act then. According to Victoria University professors Brenda and Robert Vale, you should start by dumping your dogs and cats (HT EconLog's Kling). They explain:
The eco-pawprint of a pet dog is twice that of a 4.6-litre Land Cruiser driven 10,000 kilometres a year.
One of the alternatives is to make sure that you only have edible pets:
Pet owners should swap cats and dogs for creatures they can eat, such as chickens or rabbits.
I suppose that vegetarians like me could replace them with pet trees...

I am really wondering where people's heads are at these days. Pet's are bad for the environment? I want to smack somebody's forehead.
