Fat Shaming: Cult Of Climastrology Wants To Tackle Obesity

The same people who support overweight people, holding them up as icons and such, decrying anyone who says “saying it is OK and great to be fat because it is unhealthy” as a fat shamer, also complain about obesity as being bad for ‘climate change’

Another reason to combat the obesity epidemic: scientists say overeating contributes to climate change

Obesity is complicating the climate-change fight, researchers say, especially as the Earth’s population adds roughly 83 million people of all shapes and sizes every year.

A combination of higher metabolism leading to more carbon dioxide, an additional increase in carbon-dioxide emissions from greater food and drink consumption and the extra output of emissions from fossil fuel-powered transportation, obesity is associated with approximately 20% more greenhouse gas emissions compared to people considered to have a healthier weight.

Researchers in a recently published study found that global obesity was estimated to contribute to an extra 700 megatons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, or about 1.6% of all man-made emissions. Obesity has been labeled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as an “epidemic” that contributes to a higher rate of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer.

“Our analysis suggests that, in addition to beneficial effects on morbidity, mortality and health-care costs, managing obesity can favorably affect the environment as well,” said Faidon Magkos, of the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, and an author of the paper published by the Obesity Society.

So far, the Cult of Climastrology hasn’t subsumed the health industry nor the workout industry like they have others (remember the recent freakout from Leftists over the Peloton wife?), but, they will try, making those things secondary to the overall CoC agenda. But, they can’t do it when the members also say that telling people to get fit is Fat Shaming.

    Looks like North Korea and Venezuela are now the global leaders in fighting global warming climate change, huh?
