Cancun summit: cutting carbon emissions will help combat obesity
Cutting carbon emissions will help combat obesity even if global warming is a myth, a senior scientist has said.
By Louise Gray

The world needs to go on a “fossil fuel diet” to stop both climate change and obesity, according to health experts.

Professor Ian Roberts of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said there is a direct correlation between and carbon emissions and expanding waistlines.

He said as soon as countries begin using cars and other energy intensive machines, it not only causes an increase in greenhouse gases but also in the population's average weight, because people exercise less.

He said that the health problem was another reason to tackle carbon emissions.

“There is an almost linear relationship between carbon consumption and average BMI,” he said.

“The world is getting hotter and the world is getting fatter. Fundamentally fossil fuel energy is the cause of both.

“The world needs to go on a fossil fuel-controlled diet even if climate change is a hoax – which I do not think it is – the world would still have to go on a fossil fuel controlled diet otherwise our healthy systems will just break down, we will not be able to deal with the growth in obesity.

“The decarbonisation of the transport and greener lifestyles are going to be good for health as well as being good for the planet.”
