Remember, “the science is settled.” This is the phrase that is hurled any time a person questions any part of Global Warming ‘science’. The inevitable result is that there is no governor on the rhetoric that comes out of the Global Warming camp. It just keeps getting ratcheted up over and over.
A story on Fox News entitled, “Do Fat People Cause Global Warming?” is a good example of this. In the article ‘fat people’ are charged with the sin of causing global warming. The people saying this are providing no statistics regarding the percentage of greenhouse gases produced by ‘fat people’ verses ‘skinny people’ or the overall percentage of effect on the planet made by fat people compared to other producers of greenhouse gasses such as volcanoes, the oceans, all other animal life on earth, uncontrolled population growth in third world countries, children born out of wedlock, and all industrial production.
No, the target today is fat people. They are an easy target, of course. Everyone loves to blame the fatty, and they are a convenient target for any joke or attempt at physical humor. I would wager that the percentage of extra CO2 gas produced by fat people would be many times less that one percent of the produced CO2 gas.
This is just another example of Global Warming alarmists trying to get attention and throwing their weight around. The scary thing is that when they blame, they generally attempt to punish or control those who are being blamed. I supposed their solution for this will be to tax fat people or products that make a person fat in order to buy carbon credits in order to offset their awful fatness. Soon we will see a sticker on the counter at McDonalds that will say “35 cents out of every dollar spent here goes to taxes.”
If you do not see a Pandora’s Box being opened here, you are blind. These ideas will open the door for all sorts of controls on people’s lives including eventual population controls because uncontrolled populations are a much greater ‘threat’ to the planet than fat people. And who will take the brunt of these new attitudes, the responsible Western democracies that care. Because, trying to implement these ideas in countries that have no responsibility of their own or in socioeconomic areas of Western democracies where large numbers of children are born out of a marriage, would seen as a racist policy.
