I think I have heard it all now

Okay so I was watching the dreaded Hannity and Colmes and they had some IDIOT on there talking about fat and overweight people causing Global Warming. I mean was she serious and for real? Now that has to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard in my life. Something about it putting more weight on a plane and in a car and therefore using more energy and gas. Then she was saying something about eating red meat that helped them cause this. OMG I have seen I don't know how many FAT veggie heads out there. I think people have really gone off the deep end these days.

OK, just remember, on H&C, as on many political talk shows, it's their job to find the biggest whackos and have them as guests/call-ins so they can say "Hey, look, all liberals/conservatives are this loony!"

Secondly, while I don't think obese people are causing global warming, I would say most of your seriously overweight people are more likely to have a Quarter Pounder diet than a stir-fried vegetable diet. Rent "Super Size Me" - it's a very entertaining look at what being a 'heavy user' of fast food places can do.

As for global warming, even as a left-winger, I'm still on the fence. I'm sure we're slowly destroying our environment, and should do all we can to reverse that, but I think too many theories about global warming exist for me to believe just one.

My problem is with guys like Neal Bortz, who said recently, when told that Americans were using about 25% of the world's natural resources, compared to much less being used by other, larger industrialized countries: "So what? We should use all we want! So what? We're America."

To me, sometimes being the best country in the world means being a tad more humble and a tad more resourceful.

I did see Super Size Me. It did disgust me and make me want to run from fast food. I think there is a problem with people who eat that crap everyday. But to say they are causing global warming just is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.
