PETA aren't going to like the title of a new book on sustainable living.

According to "Time to Eat the Dog: The Real Guide to Sustainable Living", keeping a medium-sized dog has the same impact in the environment as driving a 4.6l Land Cruiser.

By the authors' estimates, Rover wolfs down approximately 164kg of meat and 95 kg of cereal products per annum.

The land required to produce that food is 0.84 hectares (ha) (or 1.1 for a large dog), while building and driving the jeep for a year requires just 0.41 hectares of land.

The thing that originally caught my eye was the "PETA" comment ... but if truth be told, they may twist this info around to further anti ownership legislation.
