Poor People To Eat Carbon Under U.S. Climate Plan

RICH western countries will export their carbon in the form of tasty buns and cakes for the consumption by people in the Third World, under a radical new proposal.

"We are very much looking forward to eating your delicious carbon"

With the United States and Europe struggling to reduce CO2 emissions, the US government has called for carbon to captured, reconstituted and offered to poor nations as a chocolate covered treat.

White House spokesman Tony Snow said: "Under the programme billions of Carbon Cakes will be delivered to the developing world each year until everything returns to normal.

"This way we get rid of our carbon and hungry people in some of the poorest countries in the world get a delicious snack. It kills two humongous birds with one stone."

But Oxfam has warned that without stringent supervision the cakes will be commandeered by third world regimes and resold illegally.

A spokesman said: "Inevitably these cakes will find their way into British school canteens."

Meanwhile scientists have claimed that the carbon will still be released into the atmosphere when the cakes 'come out the other end'.

But Snow insisted: "At that point it becomes the responsibility of its host country. You cannot expect the United States to be responsible for the poo of foreign nationals."
