Because the world needs another opinion

Fat Responsible for Global Warming

Posted by Jeff Id on April 21, 2009

Your daily dose of political insanity.

If you still think the Global Warming movement is driven by science we have a disagreement. In my opinion this is a political movement first. That doesn’t mean all the scientists are paid off or anything, it only means the ones which say the right things get the stage.

Here’s the latest from the worlds brightest.

Fatties cause global warming

Scientists warned that the increase in big-eaters means more food production — a major cause of CO2 gas emissions warming the planet.

Overweight people are also more likely to drive, adding to environmental damage.

Lard help us ... overweight must eat less for planet

Dr Phil Edwards, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “Moving about in a heavy body is like driving in a gas guzzler.”

Each fat person is said to be responsible for emitting a tonne more of climate-warming carbon dioxide per year than a thin one.

It means an extra BILLION TONNES of CO2 a year is created, according to World Health Organisation estimates of overweight people.

A little more wisdom:

And researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine say wealthy nations like the US and Britain are getting fatter by the decade.

Dr Phil Edwards said: “Food production accounts for about one fifth of greenhouse gases.

“We need to do a lot more to reverse the global trend towards fatness. It is a key factor in the battle to reduce carbon emissions and slow climate change.

This has nothing to do with global warming. Like many doctors in the medical profession Dr. Phil doesn’t have much of a filter for his opinion. After all, he’s likely spent his entire career with nobody disagreeing with him so he gives us a little taste of his superior politics as well.

It is time we took account of the amount we are eating.

“This is about over-consumption by the wealthy countries. And the world demand for meat is increasing to match that of Britain and America.”

There it is folks, you know it’s coming right? Food consumption regulations, meat tax, penalties for abuse. In these peoples minds, it’s not starvation by little dictatorship countries oppressing the masses that cause the harm, its consumption by capitalists that showed (quite clearly) the way for the masses to succeed.

The overweight are the minority still and like the smokers, their health can be targeted for regulation and taxation.  This isn’t a minor in the corner issue, anyone want to bet me what will be in the news in 10 years on this issue.

    It is shocking how many people hate humanity, or at least civilization. Sheltered fools who watched one too many Disney movies growing up thinking the animals would be free to frolic in a garden of Eden, if not for the infernal human invaders.

    #1 It’s like America’s success was an accident or something.

    What’s saddest of all is that taxpayer dollars pay for these studies in the US.

    Are the studies worth the money? No

    Common sense could tell you the same thing. Eat too much – get fat. Not hard to figure out even for a layperson.

    We have indulged scientists for too long. Many (not all) of them are not worth their keep.

    Grant funded scientists serve at the pleasure of the people. It’s time that the people speak up.

  4. Actually, the people DO speak up. They say, “Huh?”

    Since people of normal weight and even under-weight produce tons of CO2 during their life-time, the next logical step is state control of procreation; no family may have more than 1.5 children, except when they buy carbon credits from friends and neighbors who have less or no children. And each premature death, voluntary or involuntary, should be honored with carbon credits.

    There is a special type of British person who cannot stand the proletariat, but knowing that outright bigotry is unacceptable hide their distaste behind various masks. One of these convenient masks is climate change.

    Or rather we quite like the planet, but we don’t like you, so die.

    It tends to coexist with hatred of Bush, America, Israel and a love of yoghurt knitting macramé latte drinking ethnic skirt wearing Guardian reading idiocy.

    Remember Michael Moore’s guilt trip not that long ago about his seemingly different personal result than his rants about over consumption of others. I think he did attempt to lose weight but the last I saw of him he remained a very large man.

    Anyway think of the angst of the overweight warmers of the world. Perhaps they will feel less guilty if they can blame it on the influences of the fast food operators, the meat producers, and the cattle and pig farmers and advocate for control of those suppliers. Cap and trade for meat products and fatty food – yeah that’s the ticket.

    So the headline should be Michael Moore causes Global Warming.

    I think that would imply personal responsibility and thus the headline would have to reference those who have fed and fooled MM as the ultimate cause. Well, no, that doesn’t work either, since MM pronouncements than could be construed to be not his original found truths, but formed by those who can so easily influence him.

    OK, we will settle for:

    Yes, MM causes global warming, but he feels guilty about it and that is more than we can say for you denialists – and he plans to make it up by purchasing carbon credits.

    Except Bush IS one of these “special types of British persons” and they are not (all) British at all. But they are some of the global elite and you can find out more about these filthy rich thugs who think we are all their slaves and hate our freedom by researching New World Order and Bildeberg Group. Many films free onvUtube: Ring of Power , The Obama Deception, End Game, zeitgeist Addendum, Zeitgeist Movement Orientation. Also check out http://www.prisonplanet.com and http://www.infowars.com
