Post COP26, Warmists Framing ‘Climate Change’ As A Health Issue Or Something

This really isn’t about climate change, is it

COP26 finally framed climate change as a public health issue, experts say

As the dust settles on the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, health professionals are finally feeling acknowledged by the global climate community.

More than 100 doctors and nurses traveled to Glasgow earlier this month with a message for world leaders: Global warming is a leading threat to public health. And curbing planet-warming emissions is a prescription.

So, they took long, fossil fueled trips to Glasgow? Huh

That message resonated at COP26 more than it has at previous United Nations climate summits, according to experts who have been attending the talks for years.

“I have been coming to these for the last 12 years, and I have seen how certain topics have gained more relevance. And certainly public health is one of them,” Ramon Cruz, president of the Sierra Club’s board of directors, told The Climate 202.

Jeni Miller, executive director of the Global Climate and Health Alliance, who has gone to five U.N. climate summits, agreed with that assessment. She noted that the World Health Organization sponsored a health pavilion at COP26 for the first time in the organization’s history.

“The WHO pavilion sounds like maybe a small thing,” Miller told The Climate 202. “But it made health — in a very literal sense of the term — visible at the COP. It created a physical place that people could walk by and countries’ delegations could see.”

Even before the conference in Glasgow, there was a growing recognition in the medical profession that rising global temperatures imperil millions of lives.

The global temperatures have gone up a whopping 1.5F since 1850. And they’re fearmongering about this.

Miller said health professionals urged world leaders in Glasgow to meet the more ambitious goal of the 2015 Paris agreement: limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. “The science is clear that warming greater than that could be catastrophic for people’s health, and that every tenth of a degree averted matters,” she said.

Well, since the previous Spreading Awareness over the past 30+ years hasn’t worked to get people to give up their money, freedom, and choice, they want to try to frame it as a health issue, because maybe that will work.

Miller also noted that burning fossil fuels — a primary driver of climate change — releases air pollutants that can trigger asthma and other respiratory conditions. Fine-particle pollution from burning fossil fuels causes roughly 4 million people to die prematurely each year, research shows.

Except, it’s not CO2 that causes the pollution, but, they do not care, because scaremongering is one of the core talking points for the Cult of Climastrology.

The good news is that doctors increasingly are keeping climate effects in mind when treating patients, said Renee Salas, an emergency medicine physician at Massachusetts General Hospital who attended COP26.

“If you come in with an asthma attack to my emergency department, that’s your primary diagnosis. But yet … climate change is driving pollen levels to be higher, so it is actually a secondary diagnosis,” Salas said during a panel last week hosted by Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

This is just what you need, eh? Climahysteric doctors. How will they treat ‘climate change’?

“We need to make sure that health has an even more prominent stage at COP27,” Salas said, “and that it’s actually incorporated throughout discussions.”

    How? Please explain in detail. That’s what you call an “unsupported assertion” – as are most lefty comments.
