Obese carbon footprints

I recently read : “There is not a single state in the union in which less than twenty percent of adults are obese. O for fifty.”

Which got me thinking about my own State, which by the way is #50, as in the least fat of the bunch of fatties, and of another quote I read years back "Only in America are the poor fat".

Which certainly holds true here if daily exercise at the local park, and money spent on slick kayaks and expensive road bikes and similar fare are any indication.

On the carbon footprint scale it’s an inverse ratio, the less body fat the fatter the carbon footprint from conspicuous consumption.
