Memories of flower and bird and wind and world, and all the living and all the dead.

One tonne of CO2 a year. Just for one old collie. It's all that meat he eats apparently.
The average human in the developed world generates 14 tonnes and an, by contrast, only one tonne in the developing world.
A study published last week seemed to cover all the ins and outs of keeping cats and dogs in modern Britain There used to be six million of each and now there are ten million of each.
People with degrees are more likely to have cats. The reason is unknown but it's conjectured that people with degrees are more likely to have serious jobs and so don't have the time to give to a dog. Hey ho. Most of my friends are dog owners so that must make us a bunch of thickos. Nice thickos, though.
Anyway, who would need a degree when you can have a collie? A blind collie who can open kitchen doors. Shame he didn't know how to switch off the burglar alarm.
So, one tonne of CO2. They said nothing about the methane.
