SHOCK NEWS! Tens of thousands of animals freeze to death in Peru! 33,000 others affectedPosted: September 3, 2013 | |
“Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming.
It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.”
– Harry Reid,
U.S. Senate majority leader
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.”
– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation
In order to promote Government climate agenda for carbon (dioxide) taxes and other draconian climate fixes, climate change advocates warn of impending catastrophe associated with Global Warming:
Global Warming Deaths To Quadruple By 2050 – Climatism
Climate change soon could kill thousands in UK, says report – The Guardian 12/2/2008
Heat related deaths as a result of increased greenhouse gas emissions leading to Global Warming are completely unsubstantiated by empirical evidence. In fact studies show the opposite is true.
Throughout history, evidence indicates a cooler planet poses a much greater threat to humanity than any slight warming:
The Deadliest U.S. Natural Hazard: Extreme Cold
The following table from Goklany (2007) provides a breakdown of mortality due to the major types of extreme weather events for 1979-2002 based on data from the CDC database for extreme cold and extreme heat, and various arms of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for floods, lightning, hurricanes, and tornadoes. It indicates that extreme cold, rather than heat, is the deadliest form of extreme weather event. In fact, over this period, extreme cold was responsible for slightly more than 50 percent of deaths during this period for the categories listed in the table.
Note that despite the hoopla about natural weather disasters, they contribute less than 0.06% to the annual U.S. death toll!
Moreover, as the following figure, also from Goklany (2007), shows, both US death and death rates from weather events are declining, despite any climate change, which we are assured can only make matters worse.
Of course we all know that the human race has historically done better during warm periods. While we’ve seen a sloght warming in the last century, we’ve also seen a worldwide improvement in the human condition.Warm – what’s not to like?
In an article entitled, “The impact of global warming on health and mortality,” published in the Southern Medical Journal in 2004, W.R. Keatinge and G.C. Donaldson of Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of London note:
“Cold-related deaths are far more numerous than heat-related deaths in the United States, Europe, and almost all countries outside the tropics, and almost all of them are due to common illnesses that are increased by cold.”
“From 1979 to 1997, extreme cold killed roughly twice as many Americans as heat waves, according to Indur Goklany of the U.S. Department of the Interior,” Singer and Avery write. “Cold spells, in other words, are twice as dangerous to our health as hot weather.”
According to the C.I.A., the 1970’s Global Cooling Climate Scare was to bring drought and starvation:
MAJOR world climate changes were under way that would cause economic and political upheavals “almost beyond comprehension”, an internal report of the Central Intelligence Agency has warned the US Government.
“The new climatic era brings a promise of famine and starvation to many areas of the world”, the report warns.
A return to cooler temperatures in today’s fragile, interdependent global economic structure would mean that India, China and the Soviet Union’ — among other northern hemisphere nations — will be hard pressed to feed their populations.
The report, which was concerned with possible political and economic threats the United States could expect from such drastic events, said the starvation and famine would lead to social unrest and global migration of populations.
21st CENTURY GLOBAL COOLING TREND:
Despite record output of industrial emissions over the past 15 years, there has been no Global Warming, at all. In fact, since around 2002, there has been a measured cooling trend across all key data sets of around 0.07°C or 0.77°C per century.

Though this cooling is statistically-insiginficant, it highlights the epic failure of the IPCC and the ability of their billion dollar state-of-the-art climate models to forecast climate change, and the sheer insanity and costly danger of 97% of the world’s ‘expert’ scientists making alarmist forecasts and scientific reporting based on 73 overheated CMIP5 climate models.
A case in point:
Heatwave deaths in New York city could rise by up to 22%, study shows ~ New temperature norms under climate change will increase weather-related deaths in metropolitan areas in coming decades. New York city could experience up to 22% more deaths from extreme summertime heat in the coming decade under global warming, according to a study of the impact of climate trends. Keep reading »
The economic dangers associated with Governments implementing draconian climate policy based on unverifiable predictive models which do not accord with observed reality, needs no further explanation.
So while global mean temperature continues to free-fall, as it has been since 2002, despite record CO² emissions output, expect more of, the real problem that faces humanity, the cold:
Peru snow state of emergency extended to more regions – BBC Latin America
And expect more of this as Governments addicted to taxes, legislate murderous climate policy designed to limit the use of fossil fuels by increasing the cost of electricity…
Thousands dying because they can’t afford heating bills… and green taxes are adding to the burden – Mail Online 20/10/2011
Afterthought: Despite literally trillions of dollars gulled from taxpayers, spent on inane and insane climate fixes and despite all the propaganda, lies, spin and hysteria trotted out daily by Government, vested interests and compliant media …. a new Nature Study Confirms Global Warming Stopped 15 Years Ago.
When can we start spending other peoples money on important things like medical research, fixing real pollution, stopping the decimation of rain-forests for biofuels or providing cheap, reliable electricity to the 1.3 billion people who don’t have any?
I guess the United Nations has more important things to attend to…
