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.

Gets the gray out.
Now, I think I’ve heard everything! Where do these people come from? Who gave them a microphone or pen?
