Fact or fiction: Fatties cause climate change

Eww, put it away, love... (© Sun newspaper)

Global fatsters are causing global warming (no, honestly, it says so on so it must be true...). So away we go, let's bash the lard-arses:
Scientists warned that the increase in big-eaters means more food production - a major cause of CO2 gas emissions warming the planet [note the lack of any qualifying "may be" or "might" or "could" - hey, the science is settled, you denier, you - Ed], according to a report in English newspaper The Sun.

The environmental impact of fat humans is made even worse because they are more likely to travel by car - another major cause of carbon emissions. ["Fat humans" - hilarious!]

Each fat person is said to be responsible for a tonne more of climate-warming carbon dioxide per year than a thin one due to factors including higher food and fuel consumption.

Read it here, or here for the original Sun article [with lots more illustrative photos like the one above - Sun readers don't have much imagination, so when a story mentions fat people, it is accompanied by copious pictures of, er, fat people. Oh, and, because it's a story about climate change, a picture of a polar bear. Sadly not this one...]
