Liposuction – the answer to climate change

Who’d have guessed? A new report links obesity to climate change. Fat people, believe it or not, eat more food and are more likely to haul their lardy arses around in cars than to get out the bike.

As George Monbiot points out in The Guardian, it’s unfair to blame fat people per se. Obesity is simply the most visible sign of the overconsumption that characterises our whole society. Food, cars, gadgets, toys, clothes… you name it, we’ve got too much of it.

On the other hand, working on the basis that every crisis is also an opportunity, there’s always liposuction. I’ve blogged before about the amazing Earthrace boat but what I didn’t mention was this.

OK, so it only went 15km on human fat, but it’s a start.
