Pets v private jets

Luxury airline firm boss, Patrick Hansen, has claimed that pets cause as much pollution as private jets!

The CEO of Luxavaiation, which is based in Luxemberg, told the Financial Times recently that one of his company’s customers produces about 2.1 tonnes of CO2 a year, roughly the same as three dogs.

Hansen used data from Mike Berners-Lee’s book ‘How Bad are Bananas’, which estimates that a pet cat produces 310kg of carbon emissions per year and a dog about 700kg.

Hansen told the MailOnline: “Of course, if no-one flew privately, these private jet CO2 emissions would not be emitted. And if no-one had a pet, there would be no pet food production emitting CO2.”
