BAAAAA...D DOGGIES:

How the media transfer responsibility for despoiling the planet from rich complicit corporations to dumb citizens

Pets: They're bad for the planet

O.K., so you've cooked and eaten your pet. Then what? You going to ask the boss to lower your salary so you have less money to spend on gas and groceries, home improvements and holidays, and thus a smaller impact on the planet?

No?

Thought not. You'll spend the money you save in a way that for all you know has as great an environmental impact as housing, grooming and feeding a pet.

But don't dismiss this story as meaningless media rubbish.

Far from it. What this story is telling you is that you are to blame. You personally. And you as a member of the human race. Either way you are destroying the world and would be best classified as a noxious pest: vermin to be punished, impoverished and preferably simply wiped from the face of the Earth.

Why, so?

Two reasons,

First, unless you have an IQ of 140 plus and a higher degree in electrical engineering, robotics, or something in the mind-control field, the plutocracy considers you an unnecessary excrescence.

Haven't you noticed? A pair of hands has an ever diminishing value in the labor market.

Productivity is the name of the game.

That means substituting technology for people. At the airport, check-in with that robot; in the factory, produce one GM automobile with less than two thousand dollars worth of North American labor; at the fast food outlet, they still have people, but usually on minimum wage, and they don't move around much, they just press buttons on some kind of terminal. Soon you'll be doing the button pressing for yourself and your donut will be delivered automatically down a chute.

War's the same. Automated killing machines. If an operator is needed, it will be a technician at CIA headquarters in Virginia, or some such place, flying a drone half a world away and wiping out Afgahn wedding parties with the touch of a button.

Very efficient, anybody, practically, can work the system. A geeky teenager, a single mother working part-time -- and they can fly many more missions in a day than could be expected of a high-paid airforce pilot.

Second, blaming you for environmental damage to the planet saves the corporations a whole world of complication and expense.

Making paper without poisoning the water with toxic chemicals costs money. Generating electricity from coal without spewing mercury into the atmosphere, which settles in the ocean where it is accumulated by fishes that are consumed by humans, who become autistic, schizophrenic or whatever, costs huge heaps of money. Making vaccines without mercury is so difficult, apparently, that big pharma just got legal immunity for whatever harm their vaccines do.

Yep, leave it all to the the dumb citizen to figure out the environmental and human consequences of whatever they do, eat, or allow to be injected into their bodies.

As if he could. How the hell should I know whether producing a pound of cat's meat does more or less harm to the planet than burning a litre of gas, or renting a video? Should you waste an employer's time making sure every sheet of paper is printed both sides? Or will the loss in productivity this entails have other environmental impacts you hadn't considered?

Forget it. No one has a clue how to reduce their impact on the environment, other than to stay in bed all day, earn nothing, and die of starvation. Why not do it: become first environmental saint.

But if you can keep folks worrying what horrible destructive vermin humans are, it takes the heat of the corporations that knowingly, willfully, and with a total psychopathic disregard for human welfare pollute and despoil the planet at will.
