Save The Planet Smoke A Camel
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” were the words of Napoleon the pig in George Orwell’s Animal Farm, an allegorical story about Stalin and communism, equally applicable to today’s Greens and environmentalists.
Some animals are politically correct and fit the Green fantasy Disney stereotype of how nature should be, others need to be eradicated because they kill other animals or because of the their carbon paw print.
The Green in environmentalism has always been about the color of money, if you need further proof just look at the huge subsidies that renewables like wind and solar receive globally, in Britain solar energy companies are suing the Government for cutting subsidies for having solar panels installed, in the US the wailing from wind farm operators when the PTC was delayed was deafening.
In Australia another Green profiteer has seen an opportunity to cash in on
saving the planet killing an animal that does not fit the Green model:
A plan to give carbon credits for slaughtering camels, curbing emissions coming from their flatulence, was rejected by an Australian government committee.
The proposal by Northwest Carbon Pty, a land and animal management consultant, didn’t provide clear instructions for protecting animal welfare, and the method for assessing emission reductions was incomplete, according to a report by the Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee published yesterday on the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency’s website.
Killing animals because they fart, it would be laughable if these people were not serious, and the Australian Government so devoutly Green that they created a legislative framework, the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI), where such an idea could take shape.
An estimated 750,000 feral camels are roaming Australia since they were introduced in 1840, according to an e-mail today from Northwest Carbon. Their numbers are doubling every 10 years, and their flatulence contains methane, a greenhouse gas linked to climate change. Northwest wanted to kill and sell the camels in exchange for credits under Australia’s Carbon Farming Initiative, which allows about 300 of the nation’s biggest polluters to purchase offsets in place of emission permits.
Just imagine the outcry from Green world if the same plan were to be applied to polar bears.
“This decision by the DOIC simply serves to highlight the significant challenges faced by private proponents attempting to develop any genuinely innovative new methodologies under the CFI,” Tim Moore, managing director at Northwest Carbon, said in the e-mail. “We expect to submit a new, revised methodology in the second quarter of this year, having dealt with all the specific issues the DOIC raised,” he said.
Interesting new Green speak “genuinely innovative new methodologies” the politically correct way of saying killing these beautiful animals for profit, but it is for Green profit and will help save the planet from a problem that does not exist.
So do not expect any Green NGOs to take up the cause of the camel anytime soon.
