Fat of the Land (PC)

I was reading an article in CNN about the percentage of overweight and
obese people in the good old USA. The pundits and experts agree that 65%
of Americans are overweight, and 30% are obese.

---- Start Fermi Problem ----

If you were to liposuction the excess fat off of Americans, estimate how much you would get.

If you could burn the fat for energy, for how long could you power an average home?

---- End Fermi Problem ----

The radical Muslims could now say: "Kill all Americans, and burn them for power!"
