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.
Each fat person is said to be responsible for emitting a tonne more of climate-warming carbon dioxide per year than a thin one.
It means an extra BILLION TONNES of CO2 a year is created, according to World Health Organisation estimates of overweight people.
The scientists say providing extra grub for them to guzzle adds to carbon emissions that heat up the world, melting polar ice caps, raising sea levels and killing rain forests.
It is a key factor in the battle to reduce carbon emissions and slow climate change.

Hey to Boaby's Rant
Come on these people have an illness, and basically you are discraminating them for this. Why should these people have to pay more taxes or more health care, when they obviously have an eating disorder which is already costing them more than anyone. They pay for their food and also some pay for more seats on public transport, jeses how Embarrassing is that for them to be in public and take the critism every where they go, thats called harresment. Thats just making some eles life a little more unbearable.
I have health issues which i pay for treatment which if i never had, i would proberly die, which annoys me to fork out my own money out of my pocket.
People should be more a little more open minded when talking about issues like these and slandering should stop, so you have to move out of someones way or move a few extras steps to get to your destination, your lucky you have the abilty to walk and move and use it to greatest advantage, so stop being so angry about it and be thankful for what you got.
Bambams rants never stop, i am a human machine with the ability to see clearer than YOU........................
