NPR: "Few medical residents learn about the health effects of climate change. Now as wildfires sweep the West and hurricanes flood the Gulf Coast, the first published guidelines offer a way to start."
Climate Depot Reality Check: Recent scientific research has countered the claims of a health threat from climate change.

CO2 Emissions, Life Expectancy, Per Capita GDP: The Real Hockey Stick: ‘How Fossil Fuels Saved Humanity from Nature and Nature from Humanity’ - 'From 1750 to 2009, global life expectancy more than doubled, from 26 years to 69 years; global population increased 8-fold, from 760 million to 6.8 billion; and incomes increased 11-fold, from $640 to $7,300.

The climate activists have seen how emotional and effective death tolls can be to get the public to accept more government control and as a result, they are now pushing adding climate change as the cause of death on death certificates.
Calls to add ‘climate change’ to death certificates – New study demands ‘climate change’ be added as ‘pre-existing condition’
Cause of Death? Climate Change.
“Climate change is a killer, but we don’t acknowledge it on death certificates,” co-author Dr Arnagretta Hunter, from The Australian National University (ANU) Medical School, said. “There is second component on a death certificate which allows for pre-existing conditions and other factors.
Climate Depot: Since federal research has sought a link between “climate change” and “fatal car crashes”, is it possible that anyone dying in a car crash could be listed as a “climate change” death?
See: Say what?! U. S. Department of Transportation asks: ‘How might climate change increase the risk of fatal crashes in a community?’

Cancer deaths blamed on ‘climate change’
Now that “climate change” and cancer are being linked in a study published in the American Cancer Society journal, deaths from cancer could someday be labeled a “climate change” death.
See: New study in American Cancer Society Journal: ‘Climate change is already increasing cancer risk’ – Frets over ‘carbon footprint of cancer care’
Al Gore also has promoted a link between climate change and health in recent years. See: 2017: Gore’s new health warning: ‘Every organ system can be affected by climate change’
So if Gore is correct that “climate change” impacts “every organ” in the human body, that could mean that anyone who dies of organ failure could now be listed as a “climate change” cause of death.
If someone dies from a car crash, cancer, or organ failure, “climate change” could be listed as a cause of death on a death certificate.
Climate Reality rejects these climate claims:

Lomborg responds to Greta: On climate change, humanity is not ‘evil’ – Praises fossil fuels: ‘Just a century ago, life was back-breaking’ – Lomborg: “We don’t emit CO2 with malign intent. Indeed, it is a byproduct of giving humanity access to unprecedented amounts of energy. Just a century ago, life was back-breaking. Plentiful energy made better lives possible, without having to spend hours collecting firewood, polluting your household with smoke, achieving heat, cold, transportation, light, food and opportunities. Life expectancy doubled. Plentiful energy, mostly from fossil fuels, has lifted more than a billion people out of poverty in just the past 25 years. That is not evil – it is quite the opposite.”
“Ms. Thunberg believes that climate change means people are dying, but the fact is that weather-related disasters just a century ago killed half a million people each year. Today, despite rising temperatures but because of less poverty and more resilience, droughts, floods, hurricanes and extreme temperatures kill just 20,000 people each year – a reduction of 95 per cent. That is a morally commendable achievement.”
“Ms. Thunberg tells us that if we don’t cut off fossil fuels by 2028, the young generation will never forgive us. This, however, is reflective of a blinkered first-world view. When the United Nations asked 10 million people around the world what they prioritize, they highlighted five issues: health, education, jobs, corruption and nutrition. In sum, they care about their kids not dying from easily curable diseases, getting a decent education, not starving to death.Climate came last of 16 choices.”
New Documentary Film, ‘Juice,’ Challenges Elitism Of Anti-Growth Environmentalism – Michael Shellenberger: “It was economic growth that lifted Thunberg’s ancestors out of agrarian poverty, raised life expectancy from 40 to 70 years, and liberated women and girls from feudal patriarchy. Without Sweden’s economic growth, and the fossil fuels upon which it depended, the person who is Greta Thunberg would not exist…in the name of fighting climate change, powerful first-world organizations including Sierra Club and Greenpeace, whose annual revenues nearly total $500 million, have forced World Bank and other banks to divert lending from cheap and reliable energy sources like hydroelectric dams and natural gas power plants to expensive and unreliable ones like solar panels and industrial wind turbines. And, last year, Thunberg and other student climate activists even sued Brazil, where per capita incomes are just 25% that of Sweden, for supposedly not doing enough to restrict greenhouse gas emissions…”
‘CO2 Going Up. Human Progress Going Up’ – ‘The gradual increase in the rate of the rise of the carbon dixoide concentration is a sign that we are continuing to expand our energy use and availability, primarily in developing countries like India and China. With more than a billion people still without much access to electricity (and many more than that who would like access to more) and all the life-improving benefits that come with it, we still have a long way to go.’
