The New Nostradamus of the North: Princeton bioethics professor: Heavy people exacerbate global warming

Professors of bioethics seem to be a breed of their own. NYU bioethics professor S. Matthew Liao is suggesting that the human body should be engineered to combat global warming.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Latest eco-scare from global warming: Arachnophobia
