Global warming –> more cats

Global warming leads to more cats. That’s the claim of Pets Across America, who says warming has lengthened the feline mating season. I’m normally opposed to taking drastic action to fight climate change, but if this dubious claim is true I might have to support some massive CO2 reductions. Or perhaps we could just use the excess kitties as a source of biofuel? Whatever’s cheaper.

On a more serious note, here’s what’s new at A Better Earth:
The new push to revive CAFE standards
Should cities tax car sharing services?
“Choice editing” not an apt choice of words
The “Skeptical Environmentalist” returns
UK food miles debate heats up
Yet another downside to ethanol
Wealth and skepticism
Recycling and incentives
We’re all eating mutants!
Floating nuclear power plant
The Woz on efficient housing

    Finally, a reason to care about global warming. Cats are gross.

    Aw, I didn’t know you could type, Isabel. I always thought Harper was the smart one :)

  3. Doesn’t everyone know that domestic cats’ mating season is year round? This is not true in some areas where feral cats are ubiquitous. Solution: spaying.

    Ok, that biofuel line was over the line, pal! Far better we use the excess bloggers and libertarians as biofuel than cats. At least cats can catch rodents and thus serve a useful purpose.

    Kinda gives new meaning to the old advertising tag about having a tiger in your tank.

    Being a dog person, I find this troubling. Actually thanks for sharing this – I do some work with the Auto Alliance and its nice to read something a little lighter on this issue. There is actually a lot going on this issue in regards to CAFE, and actually the auto manufacturers are working to raise standards right now. Its a big issue that effects us all – check out if you’d like to see how its effecting where you live. No cats info, but it still worth seeing if you’re interested in learning more.
