For years unconfirmed reports of a Carbon Yeti have come out America with alarming regularity, but today the most convincing piece of evidence to date has been discovered.
Native Texan Ignis Matthews is believed to have found a carbon footprint, which he claims is too big to have been left by any human.
Matthews, 56, became a local icon after claiming to have not only seen a carbon bigfoot, but also to have caught the illustrious beast on film. However, Mr. Matthews' film was not enough to silence the sceptics and even with this new evidence coming to light the argument looks set to rage on.
"I don't know how any persons can argue, I have found indisputable evidence," said Mr. Matthews at a local press conference. "Of course I don't have any scientific 'proof', but if everybody waited for proof before making any claims would we get anything done? I for one don't think so"
Mr. Matthews' fiercest critic is the Head of Environmental Studies at the University of Texas, Professor Andrew Wiggs. "I'm afraid that Mr. Matthews may have largely misunderstood the phrase Carbon Footprint. In all honesty this entire discussion is a grave waste of time - mine and yours"
Despite this opposition Mr. Matthews, a local senator, has said that he will continue to dedicate his life to finding and having brunch with the Carbon Yeti
