similarities between the Carbon footprint and breaking wind

Climate Change is not a myth but a natural process and it seems we humans have had quite a role in accelerating it, hence the mention of "anthropogenic emissions" wherever and whenever climate change is mentioned. Reducing the carbon footprint comes as a viable alternative that conscious citizens from developed nations have resorted to as part of their efforts towards curbing their dependence on carbon.

This notion comes rather out of the blue and could serve to explain to people who still don't gt it (if reducing the carbon footprint has anything towards redressing the eminent impacts of climate change).

Please do excuse the rather awry sense of humour intended,

Imagine fifty people in a closed space. When someone in the room breaks wind (farts), everyone in the room bears the brunt (though at no fault of their own).

So asking people to reduce their carbon footprint is synonymous to asking all likely person/s who tend to break wind in closed spaces to avoid spicy meals (which they can pretty much do without). On the other hand, adaption here would imply asking the innocent others to equip themselves with a handkerchief or any other air purifying  equipment to help them pass through any unforeseen incidents like an accidental fart.
Granted that we from the LDC (Least developed countries) will not make much of a dent by trying to reduce our carbon footprint, but again we are contributing for the global good. :)
