Fat people blamed for Global Warming
Some British scientists are saying that fat people contribute more to Global Warming because they require more food and fuel than a person of average weight. Overweight people use the car more often and that adds to the environmental damage. Each fat person is said to be responsible for emitting a ton more of climate-warming carbon dioxide per year than a thin one. According to the World Health Organization an extra billion tons of CO2 a year is created. The truth is that we are all responsible for the environmental burden and blaming it on this group of people that have many issues is not fair. This people make poor food choices or consume too much, but becoming an environmental hazard that seems just ridiculous.
I choose this article because I think that it is very stupid. Fat people have a lot of problems and most of them consume more food than they should because they are depressed. The Government should help them and not let articles like this show up in the media. They are very hurtful and make you think that the only think that fat people do is get into a car and buy food. This is a group of people that have very low self confidence and do not need to accused of something so stupid in a daily newspaper. If what the article says is true we should all look for country with only skinny people. I would not be able to go live there but I am happy to be a fat person.
