"Kill camels to decrease emissions"

“The Federal Opposition’s agriculture spokesman, John Cobb, says eliminating Australia’s feral camels would mean huge savings in carbon emissions.  …

Mr Cobb says if the Government is serious about carbon pollution [sic] reductions it should consider the benefits of removing camels completely.

“If you were to replace or get rid of all those camels it would be the equivalent of taking off around about 3 per cent of Australia’s cars off the road.”

Mr Cobb says one camel emits about a tonne of carbon every year.

“You should seriously look at removing this population,” he said.”  “Eradicating camels ‘will cut emissions’”  h/t Global Warming Science
