A New Theory From Watermelon Central

By Thomas Dilorenzo
The Latest Benefit of Global Warming

It will alleviate malnutrition and starvation in the world.  According to the latest sky-is-falling alarm from the watermelons (“green” on the outside, red on the inside, a.k.a. “environmentalists”), warming reduces a body’s metabolism since you don’t have to burn as much energy to keep warm.  The watermelons say this is all bad, since it will make us fatter and less healthy.  But at the same time, fatter is better for that part of the human population that suffers from malnutrition.  This latest watermelon warning is therefore quintessentially elitist and anti-poor.  Their main concern seems to be the well being of chubby environmental “activists” in D.C. and elsewhere.
By the way, New Englanders must be losing weight by the tons this winter if there is anything to this latest theory from watermelon central.

  1. What bullshit. We're talking about maybe 1 degree in a hundred years. First off, that's not enough to trigger any major change in metabolism. Secondly, i don't know about you, but i lose a lot of weight in the summer, despite all the bar-b-que, because it's warm enough to go running and cycling consistently. Warmer climate means more exercise, so people should actually be more fit if global warming does actually raise global temperatures appreciably.
