Thanks, Fat People, for Ruining the Earth

Thanks, Fat People, for Ruining the Earth

Share
If I didn’t feel bad enough about the extra few pounds I put on this year, I just read a study that fat people are causing global warming.

University of Illinois researchers figured out how much extra gasoline airplanes need to use to move Americans now that we’re heavier. The answer, based on the extra 10 pounds the average American gained in the 1990s, is an extra 350 million gallons of gas, which churns out 3.8 million tons of carbon dioxide.

Is the environmental damage worth giving up Krispy Kremes?
