G.M. Owes the World $8 for His Cat

...and possibly hundreds of dollars for himself! You see, it's all about global warming as described in this article quoted below:

If you own a cat, you know the smelly truth: they break wind and it's foul. Not only that, it harms the planet. All forms of flatulence - from cats, dogs, even from Dad - contain methane, a greenhouse gas thought to contribute to climate change.

If you've been feeling guilty about it, help is at hand. For just $8, a Sydney-based company, Easy Being Green, can now make your cat carbon-neutral, so it can "live guilt-free for a year".

The scheme can be applied to any product, animal or person. For $20, the company made Jenny Cracknell into a "carbon-neutral granny" last year. Her daughter, Emily, gave her a gift certificate to offset two years' worth of flatulence. "I don't like to brag, but I actually don't have much flatulence," Mrs Cracknell says. "But when I do, I feel OK about it, because the damage to the planet has been offset."

The big question, of course, is what Easy Being Green and other carbon offset organisations...do with the money. ...Mr Gilding said: "First, we help them cut their emissions. We install energy-saving lightbulbs, shower heads, and actually bring down emissions."

Oh, this is real, all right. Last year, in this similar post, we wrote about a U.S. operation which will take $99 of your money as penance for your carbon footprint on our globe.

And, besides easing your conscience this way, just think of the smiling faces from your kids and grandkids when you tell them that you bought them carbon credits for their birthdays and Christmas! "No toys, kids! You're helping Al Gore!"

Now, if G.M., his cat, and Mrs. Cracknell can control themselves, then we have a good start towards conquering global warming. Until such time, pay your money and watch our for that Mexican food.

Woody, that would be $16.00. I have TWO cats and I guess that means that the green house gasses problem is "felineopomorphic," oh, the shame I feel.

So to cut back on Granny's flatulence, you put that showerhead - where, exactly? just asking.

Sounds to me like somebody's trying to blame her own flatulance on the cat.
