Scientist in London have discovered that fatty acids make up 10% of fine particulates in the clouds and could help counteract global warming!

See, we aren't responsible for global warming after all. They say deep frying and places like McDonald's may be the culprits

Who would of thought lol

I wonder if their gonna test other major cities?

Didn't they recently find a whale sized blob of fat in the sewers in London also?

What the heck is going on over there? Lol

Cremation's as well, definitely put's me off those meatball's, the idea is that these could actually COOL the climate as you say, I reckon it's just a crackpot study probably by a intern that a professor has leaped on and made his own because he probably has nothing original of his own to claim and it will get his name in the press for five second's.

London does have it's fair share of lazy fat bastards that can't cook or be bothered to prepare healthy food, that along with a population that is overcrowded and depressed fatty junk food is the escape or only option..


The problem is so bad that there are boroughs that have banned "Chicken shops" from opening due to the level of obesity and dietary options within a area or near schools..

I'd believe that more than anything.

Millions of cows give their all every day for Ronald the Clown, Hi priest of sodium, fat and cholesterol.

Hail the golden arches!

Interesting, thanks OP - interesting stuff.

However your headline was very misleading "Clouds over London 10% fatty acids!" - 10% of the clouds being fatty acids would be insane! Fortunately it's not true. From the original paper:

"Aerosols are key components of the climate system1,2,3. Nearly all atmospheric aerosols contain organic compounds that are often surface active, in particular fatty acids. These include oleic acid found as the main component of cooking4 and marine5, 6 aerosols. While cooking emissions are not yet included in European emission inventories, they have recently been estimated to contribute nearly 10% to the UK national total anthropogenic emissions of small particulate matter (PM2.5) averaging 320 mg per person per day based on measurements at two sites in London7.
www.nature.com...

So, of human generated small particle pollution, 10% is fatty acids.

No, the article says it may REDUCE global warming, not cause it. But researchers say it wont.

But researchers dismiss the idea that cooking fats could be used as a geo-engineering tool to reduce warming.

So it has nothing to do with soot coming from burning fossil fuels.



There sure looks like there's a correlation. But I'm sure it's just left wing delusional thinking to accept this graph as meaningful.

Not many ethnic British left in London compared to the overall population so I assume that does not just mean them, I am a brit but northern, love my chip's and hey it's bloody cold tonight so that chip pan is not warming anything other than my chip butty's up.

Must be all those kebab shops frying away those kebab strips. I once bought some supermarket kebab meat and by the time I was finished cooking, I had a grill tray full of fat.

Comming from Glasgow myself, i have to wonder if we had/have those fatty clouds above our own fair city considering there was a chip pan in just about every house in the city when i was a wean growing up?

Replaced these days i suppose with the rather more safe deep-fat fryers.

I really love fog, when it comes, I have to go out and play in it. I'm a weirdo i guess.
