How much more do large humans effect the environment?

    I don’t think people’s size really has anything to do with their environmental footprint. Someone’s weight doesn’t necessarily have any reflection on whether they buy organic produce, conserve water, recycle, install solar panels on their roofs, use public transit, or any other actions which can go towards helping the environment. The common assumption that fat people get that way because they are lazy I suppose might lead people to assume they drive more rather than walking or cycling places, but I don’t think that’s true; first of all, that’s a highly offensive and inaccurate attitude about fat people, and second of all…well…lots and lots of skinny people drive more often than they should, too. So I don’t think it’s really a difference that makes a meaningful impact. Each person is different. Their habits have more to do with their values, upbringing, politics, etc., than size.
