WTF, Australia?




I came across this story that made me blink and want to stab myself in the eye with a fork.


If it came out of the Onion or something, I’d understand, but it appears to be serious. ??


A company in Australia wants to reduce carbon emissions by KILLING CAMELS. 


Let that sink in for a second, then let me reiterate, some logistical genius wants to SHOOT camels and get paid for it.  In the name of CARBON TAX.  It wants to shoot innocent, goofy camels, no FERAL HERBIVORES from helicopters because they eat and poop, and somewhere in there produce unacceptable amounts of… carbon.


These are the kinds of stories that make me weep, and wish the human race would go extinct, because we are clearly too stupid to function.


Please see the link at the bottom, and if you have a long-distance plan, maybe give NORTHWEST CARBON PTY LTD  a call at  (08) 8362 0056 and share your fervent desire for them to painfully die of a carbon laced sand enema, since clearly growing brain cells was such a failure.

Australia, I’m sure you don’t care, but unless you pull your head out of your ass and re-evaluate this ridiculous and sad atrocity, you shall forever be on my no-travel list. And camels – I’d like to apologize on behalf of our species, but words fail me. There truly is no end to human stupidity. A quick Google search tells me that they’ve done it before – when poor parched camels wreacked havoc on small towns looking for water.  But for carbon tax? Australia, I can’t thank you enough for doing your part for climate change.

  • I understand when countries cull animals that are non-native and are a threat to indigenous plants and wild life…but to kill an animal because of carbon emissions is just about the dumbness thing I have ever heard of!

    If you want to curb carbon emissions not to mention water pollution shut down the evil factory farms.

    Of better yet McDonalds!

    And indignant and horrified camel lover…Kim

  • Are you kidding me? This has to be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. How awful. Those poor animals. Stories like this break my heart. We can be such a stupid species.

  • I often despair of the human race. Sometimes it’s almost embarrasing how devolved we are. If there were a superior alien race studying us, they would certainly have to hold off contact for a few more thousand years or so. I fail to see how this inane plan could make even one iota of difference in the first place.

    @Kim – Yes, I understand culling for…. intelligent reasons. But the inanity of doing so in the name of carbon tax, when there are thousand of egregious examples of pollution on a scale that makes me think we must all be suicidal is a bit mindblowing. I’m with you on the indignant and horrified.

    @Martha – I wish I was kidding, doesn’t sound like I should be kidding? Sigh. I wonder, I really do.

    @Jane – I despair of the human race daily, but it usually doesn’t personally touch me. But when we go to exterminate a species in order to claim money on carbon refunds to ‘mitigate’ the damage that we have caused…. well that is just SO cynical and greedy that it takes my breath away.

  • o_O

    So the farmers get to kill an animal in exchange for a carbon credit that shows they are making an efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. WTF? Seriously, you are right, this something that sounds straight out of The Onion…except…it’s not…

    @Laila – it is so mindbogglingly retarded and evil, that it blows my mind. I checked and double checked the link, and even the date to make sure it’s not April 1st or something.

  • Huh?! No way! That’s horrible!

  • admin

    @Teena – horrible AND stupid. A new low.

  • JeannieD

    It is horrible and low and stupid and all those other things. You know how I feel. BUT, for better or for worse, this was one of your funnier posts. SORRY, you made me LOL! You have a gift for language my Friend. Sand laced enema? You crack me up.

  • JeannieD

    Oh, I misquoted. Should be “carbon laced sand enema”. You funny.

  • admin

    @JeannieD – I iz angry! I don’t suffer fools gladly in the best of times, but this makes me want to commit genocide.
