LONDON (Reuters) - Overweight people eat more than thin people and are more likely to travel by car, making excess body weight doubly bad for the environment, according to a study from 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.

They estimated that each fat person is responsible for about one tonne of carbon dioxide emissions a year more on average than each thin person, adding up to an extra one billion tonnes of CO2 a year in a population of one billion overweight people.

The European Union estimates each EU citizen accounts for 11 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.


I knew this would happen. :mad:

I like how they spell ton... tonne. Can't just talk different, gotta spell different.

Also, wasn't it a Brit who said Fat Bottom Girls make the rockin' world go 'round?

It's okay. Children probably aren't strong enough to take the fat people's food away.

I don't know if most of them are on the dole. What I'm unwilling to do is sacrifice their fat asses on the altar of Warmism. :mad:

Your telling me. Our mall has the food court on the second floor. We ate dinner there last night, and this one lady went by who was so big the floor shook like an earthquake.

The European Union estimates each EU citizen accounts for 11 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.

So, the problem is simply the existence of people, right? Fortunately, EU birthrates are reducing population, so there will be fewer EUro-peons breathing each year. Of course, if they look back at their own history, they can find a final solution to the problem by accelerating the process of population decline. Of course, the crematoria would increase greenhouse gases, but only once per person. :rolleyes:
