Obesity is not only a public health problem but also a potential contributor to climate change, AUS research finds

Posted by AUS blog on Feb 19, 2018 9:00:00 AM

New research from the Department of Economics at American University of Sharjah finds that obesity may be a significant contributor to climate change.

This research, which was published in the journal Public Health, assessed the connection between the obesity rate and greenhouse gas emissions across the United States over a 15-year period.

According to Dr. Jay Squalli, the author of this study and Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics of the School of Business Administration, “This research lies on the premise that obese people are not only heavier to transport but also frequent users of private vehicles. As a result, increased fuel consumption is expected to increase carbon emissions.” He added, “Obese people also consume more food than their leaner counterparts, and that could contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.” He explained that “In order to satisfy larger consumption of food, more pesticides and fertilizers must be used to increase yields, and these larger yields must be then transported to their end users.”

AUS Professor Dr. Nick Ashill running from Los Angeles to New York

On Sunday, May 14, I started off in front of Santa Monica Pier in Los Angles. I have now been running for over a month and on Wednesday, June 14, exactly a month after I started my run, I arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So far I have run 1,484 km. I have run through California and Arizona, and I am about a third through New Mexico.

Blisters continue to be a problem, but this is to be expected given I need to average 50 km per day. So far I am managing to maintain this figure. My body is tired, and I am taking each day as it comes. The run is not about the 5,400 km distance. It is about 108 runs of 50 km each.

How exciting must it be to get your work recognized and published as an undergrad student? To have your name printed in a journal? To experience, even as an undergrad student, being a part of a process that professors go through? Fortunately, American University of Sharjah (AUS) provides opportunities for its students to gain experience beyond the boundaries of a classroom. Economist Diwan, a new student-run academic journal, offers a platform for AUS students to publish their research in economics and related fields. The journal, which published its first issue this semester, operates under the AUS Department of Economics in the School of Business Administration (SBA), and is the result of the mutual effort between students and Dr. Ismail Genc, Head of the Department of Economics.
