Fat people now being blamed for global warming

Please, no Mod jokes:

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."

Fat people obviously aren't good for an ecosystem's productivity but it's not like it's as an extreme cause as our increasing human population or pollution, etc.

The difference is so insignificant and even if all these fat people were skinnier we would still have this global warming issue.

First they came for the Rednecks, and I did not say anything. Then they came for Fat People, and I did not say anything. And when they came for me, there was nobody left to speak out.

I think I've heard that before. :biggrin:

Isn't this common sense?

i never thought about that my gas mileage sucks because Im a fatty.

of course...my car gets far different gas mileages based on the amount of people i have in my car. if i was the size of two people, that would make a very big difference. but its not just that, fat people also consume more food, need things made bigger for them, etc.

its just common sense.

i know... i just never thought about it. Just wondering if its worth 15 bucks a month to go to the gym to save money on gas....:)

this global warming thing is a huge problem in that the elite have already decided that it's "settled science" and now attack anyone who offers an opposing viewpoint as a "denier." the amount of control they want over our lives to "fix" this problem requires that their hypotheses be subjected to the most rigorous debate possible. if they're so sure that global warming is for real, why are they so afraid of those that think it's not real or that it's less significant?

The truth is that there IS a scientific consequences, and its clear that the affects of global warming are going to be serious. So when "scientists" from Exxon Mobil go running around saying it's not real, that is probably why people get worried about it.

Well technically I'm on break but w/e. Believe it or not not every college student is an alcoholic.

I obviously have to spend some time doing the bidding of my indoctrinating brainwashing professors. We may be on summer break but the indoctrinating is year-round.

ny times... Im sure that's its not biased at all.

how about you cut and paste so I dont waste my time going to their site.

And buy some carbon credits for me. I plan on having a huge footprint when I drive to all 10 home games this year. And my vaca in a week that takes me from mass to wash to nc to memphis to stl to kc to milwaukee to chicago will be a real kick in the ass to my carbon footprint.

BTW, if the Times actually had a liberal bias they probably wouldn't have been so gung-ho about Bush's war, but that's another topic.

There that's a different article about the same subject.

It is a crisis no American metropolis would wish for itself. On 16 April, a roaring snow-slide in the Coastal Range made matchsticks of pylons linking the city to the hydroelectric dam about 40 miles to the south that supplied 80 per cent of its power.

The good news was that the local provider had back-up diesel generators waiting to be cranked up in just such a situation. Less good is the expense. Residents, who already have to contend with a cost of living higher than almost anywhere in the US because of Juneau's remoteness, were told to expect their power bills to quintuple during the three or four months that it would take to repair the lines.

Most homeowners will get their first glimpse of those new bills this week. But the pain may not be quite so bad as anticipated, thanks to an effort by citizens to cut back on energy consumption. It has been an unlikely go-green campaign that is already being seen as a lesson to the rest of America at a time when conservation, in times of rising oil prices, is touted for all.

Everyone has been doing their bit, including the city authorities, which took steps that included closing the municipal sauna, mothballing one of the two lifts in the main library and turning off the airport's runway lights when planes are not landing or taking off. The hope is that some of the initiatives will endure after the avalanche damage is repaired, which may not be until early July.

I'm sorry, but I just can't manufacture enough anxiety to be concerned over an avalanche in Juneau Alaska. I'm sure they've had avalanches before and I'm sure they'll have them again. If you want to bite your fingernails whilst staring out the window all day awaiting impending doom, have at it. Bad things happen in this world MJ, but just because a murder goes unsolved doesn't prove that there is a boogey man.

I'm gonna have a beer and listen to some Johnny Thunders.

Speaking of Bush's war. Where's the oil I was promised?

And how's that liberal congress doing?

Here's my take on the global warming scare: Its another money making scheme. Its done to make middle and upper class white people feel guilty about what they do.

Are there things that should be done? Yes. But to the extreme that "environmentalists" want? No way. We did so much damage to this planet from the mid 1800's to the 1970's. And now the rest of the world is acting the way we used to.

You want to stop "global warming?" Stop China. Leave me the hell alone.
