Save The Planet Smoke A Camel

Time of cash in on carbon credits 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.

  1. “Just imagine the outcry from Green world if the same plan were to be applied to polar bears”

    I wouldn’t lose any sleep if the plan was applied to Greenpeace members – I’m sure they fart as well…

  2. The trouble is, camels are an introduced species that are ruining the environment not with their farts, but with their overgrazing – why is this any different to killing rats on islands where the native birds have no defence against them?

    • In recent years about 25% of the Camel population have died off as a result of drought and a cull, nothing wrong with controlling a non native species.
      The problem here is that animals will be culled for carbon credits and largely wiped out, so that a company can offset its CO2 emissions.
      The camels will be killed to fix a problem that does not exist AGW.

  3. Back in at the end of 1987 / early 1988 I spent 3 months exploring Aussie by rail, right round the coast and into the outback, the Ghan only went as far as Alice Springs then. As you can well imagine I met loads of really interesting people and soaked up the local culture and folk lore, at that time the biggest threat to the ecology of the outback was wild horses. Camels were found to have no detrimental impact on the semi-desert ecology, the only imported species found not to do any damage to the environment whatsoever, which contradicts the latest post Co2 climate change scam alleged science the above is based on.
