In order to combat global climate change and obesity, we should implement mandatory running on hamster wheels (except they would be larger to fit people). This would generate clean, renewable electricity, and would reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. It would also help reduce obesity by giving people the opportunity to exercise when they might not be able to otherwise (if they can't afford to go the gym, they don't have time, ect.). People with disabilities and people under a certain age would be excluded from having to participate. Exceptions would also be made for people who exercise regularly and commit to promoting clean generation of energy (buying solar panels, using public transportation, going vegetarian, and stuff like that).

I disagree.
First-Peoples feet would get caught in between the wire and hurt their legs. Seems very hazardous. We would then have MORE people with disabilities. And like you said, they would be excluded. We would soon have a new welfare class system.
Second- You also recommend that 'healthy people' that exercise regularly be excluded. Well 'eventually' the fat slob running the wheel is gonna lose weight. Between his running and food rationing he will be in great shape soon and be exempted. You entire workforce will eventually be depleted. Third- The hit to the economy in general would be more than it could bear. Energy companies, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and all other weight loss food companies and gyms would go out of business. Hospitals and Big Pharma will tank with less medical issues to manage.
So in the end.... the hamster wheels would be abolished and fossil fuels brought back into the fold to support the lazy inefficient folks we are.
