Skip to comments.Cancun summit: cutting carbon emissions will help combat obesity
Posted on 12/06/2010 5:00:36 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Professor Ian Roberts of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said there is a direct correlation between and carbon emissions and expanding waistlines. ....
There is an almost linear relationship between carbon consumption and average BMI, he said.
The world is getting hotter and the world is getting fatter. Fundamentally fossil fuel energy is the cause of both.
The world needs to go on a fossil fuel-controlled diet even if climate change is a hoax which I do not think it is the world would still have to go on a fossil fuel controlled diet otherwise our healthy systems will just break down, we will not be able to deal with the growth in obesity.
The decarbonisation of the transport and greener lifestyles are going to be good for health as well as being good for the planet.

So, there's hope for Michael Moore if he drives a Prius?
Wow... I desperately need a facepalm graphic. The enviro-whackos have gone off the reservation, and these cartoon provide a stark and disturbing view into the contemporary problem of obesity.
Hell... let’s look at it this way: Al Gore claims to have created the Internet, and Al Gore is the leader of the AGW crowd. So Al Gore creates the entity that leads children to sloth and laziness, and now he wants to do something about AGW to get kids outdoors again. But Al, what about your precious Internet? What about the KIDS?!
Determined little bastids ain’t they!
I went to the Newark School of Foot Fungus and Nordic Train Schedules.
They just keep thinking up more ways to make our lives and those that are truly poor more miserable. Haven’t these lame brains gotten the msg yet? There is no global warming and NO you can’t have our money.
These people are criminally insane!
Translation: We can starve millions of people through poverty measures.
Pray for America
Cutting greenhouse gasses will reduce cavities? Prevent erectile dysfunction?
LOL.....these people are so full of junk science. HEY *light bulb going off* maybe that’s what’s making us all fat?
Cutting carbon emissions will also reduce acne, gas, stomach upsets and anything else you can think of (sarc).
Cutting “carbon emissions” will reduce obesity by starvation, which, in turn, will reduce human population. This is the *REAL* goal of the Global Warmist cult.
There's a paid program here I think it's by purity products where they hawk vitamin D and part of the pitch is that the closer you live to the equator the thinner you are, by being in the sun for 20 minutes you soak up x # of iu's. People who are in the sunny areas of the world soak up a lot of vitamin D because they are outdoors swimmming, playing etc. and therefore are thinner than those who don't. So one would think that when the weather is warmer people are outside a lot more doing activities that they don't do in the winter. These fools will put anything out there to promote gloBULL warming crap aka "climate change" and there are people out there who actually fall for this crap. We are sooooooooooooooooo screwed.
“Determined little bastids aint they!”
Desperate little bastids aint they!
fixed it for you!!!
Just when I thought these people had said the stupidest thing they could possibly say, they had to go and prove me wrong.
eradicates toenail fungus.
Gets the gray out.
Now, I think I’ve heard everything! Where do these people come from? Who gave them a microphone or pen?
Liberals feel miserable so they want to force their misery on the rest of us. So it is with the climate change scam.
Carbon control legislation is the pixie dust in liberals dreams.
Does it reverse male pattern baldness and increase the female libido yet?
Society of Environmental Journalists -- Your source for environment, energy, science, health and climate reporting.
Let’s get the professor’s salary on a diet - let’s say a 100% cut - and global warming pronouncements will end.
Gee, if this half-baked theory is what “scientists” do these days, I think I can be a scientist too. Let me try:
The colder the climate, the more likely people are to pack on fat to keep warm and have an extra store of energy since food is scarce. Thus, Global Warming will decrease obesity.
Wow. They are openly talking about causing food shortages.
I think it is past time now for the balloon to go up.
Neo-Malthusianians. They just hate mankind.
Some lucky leftist can pick up Kaczynski's remote 1.4 acre property for $69,500. The only signs of civilization are jets flying overhead on their way to vacations and business deals. It's just enough to make a leftist go crazy with murderous envy.
Their is a direct relationship between liberalism and mental disorder.
Notice that they feel the need to hedge their bets now.
Remember that population reduction and control are at the heart of this. The “liberals” (sheeperals) think they’re on the side of the angels for “saving the planet”,
but they’re just the willing dupes of the Luciferian humanity hating movement.
Even Algore, he of the expanded waistline, is not claiming climate change causes obesity!
Actually, leftists want EVERYONE ELSE to live in a shack with no power or heat,
or better yet, clumped into very dense apartment buildings in cities where you “can” walk to get your food or go to your job.
His obesity is caused by the non-release of his second chakra.
All the better to control you and dole out what they believe you need. "Thank you kindly sir, may I have another?"
Hedging their bets indeed. I find it hopeful that 1) they now feel the need to address the fact that more people every day are understanding that the AGW hoax is BS with an evil purpose and 2) they are forced to resort to such absolutely lunatic attempts to restart their faltering engine.
Did Ian Roberts and his buddies walk to Cancun?
Hilarious stuff. If I´ve ever seen the abuse of a correlational argument, this is it (And correlation abuse is rife in so many areas).
About obesity, these are some of my favorite takes:
Lustig on obesity, health and fructose:
Taubes at the Swedish Medical Center on obesity:
A good scholarly summary from the journal Nutrition:
“In the face of contradictory evidence: report of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans Committee.”
“I went to the Newark School of Foot Fungus and Nordic Train Schedules.”
Now that’s funny!
What utter nonsense. Has the world gone mad? Who has the will and the means to expose the carbon hoax for what it is? Human generated co2 is no imminent threat to the climate or to the planet. Yet, even those who know better go along with the tide of government and political pressure.
If all the world becomes a Third World country through the Cap n Trade Taxes, the Kyoto Protocol, severe restrictions on business, etc....then I fail to see how that is going to improve health.
The expert is also magna cum laude of the Inland Empire University of Toenail Clippings, Draw Blinky Art School, and The Hair Club for Men.
*Hedging their bets indeed. I find it hopeful that 1) they now feel the need to address the fact that more people every day are understanding that the AGW hoax is BS with an evil purpose and 2) they are forced to resort to such absolutely lunatic attempts to restart their faltering engine.*
I’m thinking the Left want to make AGW an alternative scapegoat because they’re tired of blaming Bush and yelling “racist.”
Now they can pretend that their unfounded blame is “scientific”
Palm to face...unbelievable.
>Professor Ian Roberts of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said there is a direct correlation between and carbon emissions and expanding waistlines.<
Prove it, “professor”.
“cutting carbon emissions will help combat obesity”
Yeah, but will it combat baldness and bad breath?
There is an almost linear relationship between carbon consumption and:
2. Knowledge and education,
4. Plentiful food,
5. Plentiful heat and shelter, and
6. Plentiful clothing.
Obviously carbon consumption is truly awful thing.
Um, there are worms squiggling through this excrement they’re trying to feed us....
These vermin are smart. Just destroy the economy and everyone will starve. No more obesity! Taaadddaaa!
