Greta Thunberg is back in Sweden. . .

. . .but does she know those adorable dogs of hers are killing the planet? It’s not us saying that, mind you. Scientists are saying it so it MUST BE TRUE:

From The Daily Wire:

The study, which appears in the online journal, PLOS, claims the human compulsion to seek out animal companionship is one of the primary factors affecting our climate, particularly in the United States, where there are 163 million companion animals — roughly one pet for every two Americans — the highest number of any country in the world.

Researchers at the University of Sydney, in Australia, claim that those 163 million pets have a detrimental impact on the environment, from the food they consume, to the waste they produce.

“In the US, there are more than 163 million dogs and cats that consume, as a significant portion of their diet, animal products and therefore potentially constitute a considerable dietary footprint,” the study’s abstract proclaims. “Here, the energy and animal-derived product consumption of these pets in the US is evaluated for the first time, as are the environmental impacts from the animal products fed to them, including feces production.”

Sorry, Greta. Those dogs have to go:
