Put Down The Big Mac Or You'll Kill The Planet

My jaw dropped when I read this on Drudge this morning. Here's a snippet from the UK Sun:

THE rising number of fat people was yesterday blamed for 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.

Global warming has been blamed on a lot of things, from cars to cow farts. I haven't seen them blame overweight people until this morning. I shudder to think what the solution would be. Government imposed food rations? A government approved Sweating To The Oldies for the "earth killers"? No, it won't be anything that tyrannical (yet). Right now, they just want your money in the form of "carbon offsets". I can just see Al Bore (who needs to lose that tank ass and double chin himself) now going to a Weight Watcher's initiation with a bunch of guilty leftists who need to lose the L.B.s "For that extra helping you get at supper, you need to contribute X amount of dollars".

Doug Ross has followed the money and provides the cold hard scientific facts that show temperatures are falling while CO2 (which hardly makes up a greenhouse gas) levels are slightly rising. So far only 34% of Americans right now believe that global warming (or climate change for those who really want to dupe the masses) is happening because of mankind. But they are trying their hardest to get other lemmings to march off the cliff.

So when a eco-nut asks you about Global Warming (or as they prefer "Climate Change", just tell them that they better find a way to regulate this thing:

There are scientist and there are alarmist. Human knowledge is to know the difference.

Twenty years ago scientist were watching the sun for temp change and believed it to be rising. The sun is a nuclear ball of gases, of course it's going to rise in temp.

Has any scientist checked on the temp of Mercury and Venus lately?
