Couch Potato's Cause Global Warming

We like to stay on top of the news, and we know our readers probably missed this, so here goes.

Global warming is not caused by cars, factories or aerosol cans. It is caused by fat people.
"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.
Define thin.
The scientists say providing extra grub for them to guzzle adds to carbon emissions that heat up the world, melting polar ice caps, raising sea levels and killing rain forests.
Sounds like the making of a good Randy Newman song. "Fat people got more body to love . . ."
A staggering 40 per cent of Americans are obese, among 300 million worldwide.
Obesity also contributes to almost two thirds of illness that could be prevented.
