Let us hope that environmentalists never calculate the "emissions avoidance benefit" of shooting humans.
One camel is estimated to emit about a tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent a year, measured as 45kg of methane, and they each eat about a tonne of vegetation.
Each camel's death is estimated to yield an "emissions avoidance benefit" of about 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
