100 Million More Will Supposedly Die From Hotcoldwetdry If Gov’t Doesn’t Tax Your Existence

Another breathless doom and gloom report, upset that weather happens

(Reuters) More than 100 million people will die and global economic growth will be cut by 3.2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said on Wednesday.

As global average temperatures rise due to greenhouse gas emissions, the effects on the planet, such as melting ice caps, extreme weather, drought and rising sea levels, will threaten populations and livelihoods, said the report conducted by humanitarian organisation DARA.

Hey, I wonder what happens when it gets cold? Like when 75 million died simply from the spread of the Black Plague at the beginning of the Little Ice Age? And the people who died of starvation because crops wouldn’t grow? And the Viking settlements wiped out because their livelihoods were too agrarian?

It calculated that five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease as a result of climate change and carbon-intensive economies, and that toll would likely rise to six million a year by 2030 if current patterns of fossil fuel use continue.

Except, CO2 is necessary for life on Earth. It is not a pollutant. And, more importantly, can they scientifically prove this prognostication? No, they’re projecting that all these deaths occurring now will get worse, creating a prognosticating causal relationship

An increase in CO2 is not going to cause 700k more deaths a year. Nor does a warmer atmosphere create more skin cancer. And Malaria was around well before the industrial revolution and CO2 passing 350ppm.

Anyhow, what are the solutions? Would it shock you to learn that they want governments to spend lots and lots of money to create a “low-carbon economy”? Or that the study itself was financed by governments? Follow the money.

    Here’s my counter proposal:

    100 million will die from a Middle East nuclear holocaust started by Iran much sooner than 2030.

    You would think the hippies would actually be worried about that, but it doesn’t give the state massive new taxation measures, so of course nobody on the left believes Iran is a threat.

    Teach any more predictions that 2012 will be the year that global cooling begins?

  3. John, any proof that I’ve made that claim? Still waiting for you to back it up.

    Oh, and why do you always deflect?

    Dump the ethanol requirement, and *poof* the food bank just filled up again. The sad irony is that any starvation will not be due to “Global Warming.” It will be due to the “Global Warmists.”

    They use this to jump on the gimme more free stuff bandwagon while millions actually do die from the ridiculous ban on DDT to prevent malaria.
