31. Change it from obese/thin to first worlders/third worlders

 

Point out that we in the first world consume more than those in the third world and no one will come back with "that's discrimination! The problem is over consumption by all people". Obviously some Nigerian kid living on 1 penny a day is consuming as many goods, resources, and producing as much pollution as an American in a Humvee.

Everyone consumes something. Some consume more.

It's not unfair to point this out as long as you can back it with facts.
