Så har man hørt det med. Den Globale Opvarmning™ bliver forværret af fede mennesker:
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."
Mr Edwards and his colleague Ian Roberts argue that because thinner people eat less and are more likely to walk than rely on cars, a slimmer population would lower demand for fuel and food.
Så mangler vi bare lejrene for tvangs-slankning. Dog næppe for ham her:
Hans Gorehed afsætter ganske vist et CO2-fodaftryk på størrelse med en midtjysk provinsby helt alene, men det er jo i den gode sags tjeneste og så gælds det ikke.
Men som en person med en vis, hmm, embonpoint vil jeg da gerne undskylde, at jeg er skyld i alle de druknede isbjørne. Jeg vil ligeledes på forhånd beklage den kommende epidemi af nyresten, der står på spring til rasere Nordamerika.
Global warming may lead to an increase in kidney stones disease, says a new study.Av!
Dehydration has been linked to stone disease, mainly in warmer climates, and global warming will worsen this effect, according to the researchers.
As a result, the prevalence of stone disease may increase, along with the costs of treating the condition.
Heldigvis har Barack Hussein Obama løsningen på hele miseren. Vi skal blot gå sultne i seng:
Pitching his message to Oregon's environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to "lead by example" on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.
"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.
Men det kan han jo sagtens sige. Hans BMI fejler jo ikke noget.
