The world's association of camel scientists fought back angrily on Monday over Australian plans to kill wild dromedaries on the grounds that their flatulence adds to global warming.


The idea is "false and stupid... a scientific aberration", the International Society of Camelid Research and Development (ISOCARD) charged, saying camels were being made culprits for a man-made problem.

Always follow the money.........

The scheme is the brainchild of an Adelaide-based commercial company, Northwest Carbon, a land and animal management consultancy, which proposes whacking feral camels in exchange for carbon credits.

Agree. There is something bizarre about Aussies smoking camels to get rid of farts, and eco-nuts paying them to do it. Sometimes reality gets really weird.

Probably make a nice profit in addition to the carbon credits, the meat would be fed to humans and animals so I'd assume sold at a profit.

Northwest Carbon says it would shoot the camels from helicopters or corral them before sending them to an abattoir for eating by humans or pets.

They've been talking about doing away with cattle in the US for the same reason for some time, now.

I was just pondering these comments while just sitting here with my elbow in the right side armrest, and my head on my chin...

You'd think that if a cow could give human milk, why couldn't it be made to pass off an inert gas?
