Fighting Fat and Climate Change from PhysOrg.com
(AP) — America’s obesity epidemic and global warming might not seem to have much in common. But public health experts suggest people can attack them both by cutting calories and carbon dioxide at the same time.

But, isn’t it also possible that Fat is a great storage sink for Carbon? I mean, fat is made out of carbon, in part. And we as a nation are storing a LOT of fat . If every American went on a very effective diet and lost weight all at once, the resulting relase of carbon from this fat reservoir could be devastating.
