From an article in THE SUN this morning:
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.

Well, I'll be! I never dreamed my overweightedness (is that a word?!) was causing global warming! I thought it might be all of the big industrial companies dumping waste into the water and all of the landfills and other such things. Who knew it was my tendancy to eat and drive the 9 miles to my work? Too bad those Little Rascal things run on a battery. If they were gas-powered I'd get one and ride it around my office (you know, because apparently overweight people don't want to walk any more than absolutely necessary).
