Your Fault: Milder U.K. Winters Save Around 27,000 Lives Per Year

Darn you and your fossil fueled vehicle addiction! How dare you eat evil moo cows! It’s horrendous that you have central AC, a gas furnace, and a refrigerator!

Death warmed up: How Britain’s milder winters have ‘saved’ half a million lives

Half a million fewer people died in England and Wales as a result of cold weather as the climate warmed over the past 20 years, latest data from the Office for National Statistics has suggested.

Between 2001 and 2020, there was a decrease of 555,103 deaths associated with warm or cold temperature, about 27,000 a year, with the vast majority of the fall, 509,555, because of fewer people dying from the cold.

The Met Office has found that the period 1991-2020 was 0.9C warmer than the 1961-1990 average, while the 10 warmest years recorded have occurred since 2002.

To calculate what impact the changing temperature had on deaths, the ONS looked at how temperatures had impacted health conditions between 1990 and 2000, and calculated the change in the following two decades.

Let’s not forget that the 60’s through late 70’s was a slight cooling period, which would skew the temperatures for that time period down.

The figures showed that there were 108,722 extra hospitalisations associated with warm days over the period, but these did not lead to more deaths.

The ONS said that the findings confirmed climate change was affecting health in England and Wales, but said Britain’s temperate climate meant that the impact on deaths was limited and much of the health risk could be alleviated. (snip)

Cold weather can trigger respiratory and heart conditions, worsen dementia symptoms and depression, cause lethal injuries from slips, trips and falls, and increase car accidents.

The ONS study found that the biggest impact on mortality declines had come from falls in respiratory deaths, with 336,882 fewer deaths in the 20-year period compared to previous years.

There were also 270,280 fewer cardiovascular deaths and more than 100,000 fewer deaths from dementia of Alzheimer’s, with some conditions overlapping.

Of course, they go on to mention anthropogenic climate change. Why can’t this be mostly natural? Just like during the Medieval Warm Period, the Roman Warm Period, and others. None of which were caused mankind.

    Both the medieval warm period and the Roman warm period are thought to be regional not global. They affected the North Atlantic/European region where white people live.Apparently this to some makes those periods very important.

      Amazing scientific evidence hairy. THOUGHT TO HAVE.

      Why are you so racist against white people who are the VAST MINORITY IN THIS WORLD? Is it the same thing that fuels your Contempt for WHITE JEWS?

      Things are important to white people every bit as important to nonwhite people. It takes all of us to make the world go around. It is leftists like you who continue to fuel racism and make people believe that they are evil. AKA Critical Race theory teaching White people they are racist mother fuckers who are worthless.

      Your racist ilk makes me sick to my stomach as you pretend to give a shit about black people or Muslim people or Asian people or anyone who is not caucasian.

      Keep slinging that racism Hairy. Blinders are an amazing thing. They prevent you from seeing what you truly are.

        The racist left in action:

        The CEO of Penzeys Spices renamed the extended Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend to be “Republicans are racist weekend” in a recent newsletter to customers, wherein he said his aim was to anger Republicans in honor of the late civil rights icon.

        Penzey spent much of his letter praising Black Lives Matter and the movement’s actions following the death of George Floyd in 2020 before suggesting that Republicans fantasize about killing Black people.

        “Remember how Republicans, going against a mountain of evidence to the contrary, once again lied and said BLM wasn’t a peaceful movement but instead terrorists inciting violence throughout the country and then raced out to buy a crapload of guns because maybe they were finally going to get their chance to shoot a Black person?” Penzey wrote. “What a bunch of racists.”

        Just let the racist left speak for themselves as they turn lies into policy and then into what runs their lives. Most of those guns were bought by Leftists living in big cities for fear the Police were indeed going to be defunded.

        Police defunded disproportionately affect black people. BLM is a movement of communists who hate America and wish for nothing less than its collapse. Penzey spices is an INNSURRECTIONIST ABBETING COMPANY!!!

      Johnny-you know better, right? All kinds of studies showing an absence of only regional warming.
