So Much For Global WarmingPosted: October 26, 2013
“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
“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world.”
– Christine Stewart,
former Canadian Minister of the Environment
“The only way to get our society to truly change is to
frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
– emeritus professor Daniel Botkin
The government is urging people to use their heating this winter as part of its plan to prevent some of the thousands of avoidable deaths that occur each year as a result of cold weather.
The official cold weather plan for England says people should keep their homes warm, with living room temperatures of 21C (70F) and bedrooms and the rest of the house heated to 18C (65F). It says temperatures above this may waste money but below may risk your health.
If people are unable to afford to heat all their rooms, they should heat their living room during the day and bedrooms just before going to bed.
The plan was published by Public Health England (PHE) in collaboration with the Department of Health, NHS England and the Local Government Association (LGA).
It says there are too many avoidable deaths each winter, with just over 24,000 each year in England and Wales. The “causes are complex, interlinked with fuel poverty, poor housing and health inequalities, as well as circulating infectious diseases, particularly flu and norovirus, and the extent of snow and ice,” it added.
Moral of the story ~ Always remember to crank up your heating when (heat trapping) CO² is at “unprecedented” levels, in order not to freeze to death.
