Why you should spend more time with your dogs and cats, as they help protect the planet
The planet is being ravaged by climate change, and animals are helping to keep it safe from this destructive process.

“The animals are actually the only thing that is preventing us from going down the rabbit hole,” said Lisa D’Emmons, who works in urban planning at the London-based think tank Transport and Environment Policy.
