About that ‘Obesity causes global warming’ article

This one.

Well, if you took the time to actually read it, which I didn’t actually expect, you’d come across some typical unscientific nonsense. It’s one of those deals where a fact is staring the author right in the face and instead of respecting this aforementioned fact his reply is probably something like this. “Screw these ‘facts’, it doesn’t fit the basis of my article. And you out there, on your blog, are an ugly person and you smell like poop.”

Besides this flagrant use of an ad hominem attack, (he would most definitely use precisely those words if I questioned him on this, I’m sure of it) it’s ridiculous how much nonsense can get through in the mainstream media.

The first paragraph of that article reads:

“The wieght and consumption habits of the overweight and obese are worsening the pace of global warming, said two researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in a letter to the Medical Journal Lancet.”

Now, the author would like us to believe that these fatties are quickening global warming. There’s a problem with that arguement however. The globe isn’t warming, it’s cooling. The understanding of this results in serious consequences and may challenge everything you ever thought to be true.

Let’s look at the facts.

1. The Earth is cooling.
2. Fat people warm the Earth.
3. Becuase of that, we’ve only cooled a little.
4. Without the increasing weight of the human race, we’d ineveitably be in an ice age, and the existence of mankind would be severely threatened.

No longer should you scoff at the guy who orders 6 Big Macs, 2 large fry’s, 20 McNuggets, and a 32 ounce Mountain Dew that gets refilled 3 times. Instead, go up to this man, shake his hand, and say, “Thank you, good sir, for doing your part to save the Earth. We could use more people like you in this world.” Then offer to take him over to KFC and treat him to a bucket of Homestyle Chicken, and don’t take no for an answer.

    Actually, it gets worse. The science behind why people get fat is just as bad if not worse than a lot of the science for man-made global warming.

    In Bernie Taubes’ Bad Calories Good Calories he goes into depth about the shoddy studies and promoters of dietary fat=body fat. There are people who are obese, but actually consume fewer calories than average for example.
