In a bizarre and horrifying prediction Emma Thompson said an impending "climate crisis" is so severe that people would have no choice but to eat their pets to survive.

The remarks that immediately made her dog run away (not  really) were delivered Thursday as part of an Extinction Rebellion protest held outside the BBC Broadcasting House in London.

Thompson told audiences that anyone "expecting a habitable future" would be gravely disappointed, Evening Standard reported.

"Climate crisis trends show an increased chance of warmer, wetter winters and hotter, dryer summers, along with an increase of frequency and intensity of extremes," the 60-year-old actress and climate change activist said. "Better wrap up warm, stockpile food and remember there is a surprising amount of food in the average household pet." (Note to Emma: Don’t expect to be honored by the Humane Society any time soon.)

Looking ahead, Thompson noted that "long-lasting and irreversible change" seemed inevitable.

"General consensus does suggest there is an imminent crisis forecast, but not for politicians who seem to think this moist and fertile rain is ideal for growing an economy," she continued, adding that the severe flood warnings across the country painted an uneasy picture.

"Expect crop failures, water contamination, damaged houses and ruined lives, and we will see these persistent weather fronts continue to wreak havoc across the nation, albeit with one or two days of dry and settled weather," she said.

Thompson was among around 20 protesters who had gathered outside the Broadcasting House. The demonstration formed part of a series of climate change protests held across the U.K. The groups were calling for immediate cation.

"All the signs are telling us to act now, but as our chief adviser King Canute once said, never let a rising tide get in the way of a good election," Thompson concluded.
