As if they didn’t already have enough problems on their hands fat people are now being blamed for global warming.
British scientists say they use up more fuel to transport them around and the amount of food they eat requires more energy to produce than that consumed by those on smaller diets.
According to a team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine this adds to food shortages and higher energy prices.
Researchers Phil Edwards said: “We are all becoming heavier and it is a global responsibility. Obesity is a key part of the big picture."
Well...damn. Nothing like a huge dose of guilt to begin my week.
Here I am at a UCLA football game last October suffering from the ravages of global warming. I have nobody to blame but myself.
I'll tell you what. I am going on a diet today...to save the earth! My car (even with my fat ass in it) already gets 25-27 mpg., I live in a small 1 bedroom apartment that uses miniscule(compared to global warming prophet Algore...PBUH) amounts of energy...but I guess I am just not doing enough to save Mother Planet.
I'm not doing this for me, or my health...I'm doing it for the Polar Bear, Great Tits, and the future of our earth. Y'all can thank me now...
