    Default Fat people causing climate change

    Greenism, covert today!

    Fat people causing climate change, says Sir Jonathan Porritt - Telegraph

    Fat people causing climate change, says Sir Jonathan Porritt

    Fat people are harming the planet by contributing to climate change, according to Sir Jonathan Porritt, the Government's chief green adviser.

    Echoing the famous slogan "fat is a feminist issue", Sir Jonathan, Chair of the Sustainable Development Commission, said "fat is a climate change issue".

    He pointed out overweight people eat more protein-rich food such as beef or lamb, which is responsible for producing greenhouse gases because of the toxic methane livestock emits. He also said obese people are more likely to use cars rather than walk or cycle, therefore producing more carbon emissions...
    Seriously, I've seen quite a number of overweight vegatarians. When I was on the caveman diet I was the thinnest I ever was in my life.

    So if fat people stopped eating cows, what would happen to all the leftover cows? Would they become dairy cows and spend even more time on earth producing even more gas? If fat people stopped eating meat and ate vegetation instead, would we not just be shifting the methane production from one source to another?

    Skinny people with stupid-fast metabolisms like me would just have more cows to eat!

    And then, when we run out of cows... /eyes all the fat people eating vegetables and reaches for a fork
