Global Warming Follies

Stay slim to save the planet

Posted in Follies by tjgavin on April 20, 2009

Hard to believe but true! At least according to the nut-jobs at something called the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

“When it comes to food consumption, moving about in a heavy body is like driving around in a gas guzzler,” and food production is a major source of greenhouse gases, researchers Phil Edwards and Ian Roberts wrote in their study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

“We need to be doing a lot more to reverse the global trend toward fatness, and recognize it as a key factor in the battle to reduce (carbon) emissions and slow climate change,” the British scientists said.

So there you have it you fattys out there. You, personally, are killing the planet! How dare you? I think, at the very least, you need to pay a carbon tax. In the alternative you can enter into a cap and trade arrangement with an ultra-skinny supermodel until you come back into body weight compliance.

    Oh, man–what a conundrum! Stay fat and flick the nose of the GW crooks, or lose weight, thereby jumping on the bandwagon. Sigh.
