The next big climate scare: Counting climate change deaths

Steve Goreham in Washington Examiner: 

In December 2023, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at COP28, the 28th United Nations Climate Conference, and mentioned climate-related deaths. “We are seeing and beginning to pay attention and to count and record the deaths that are related to climate,” she said. …

On Jan. 30, Dr. Colin J. Carlson of Georgetown University published a paper in Nature Medicine titled, “After millions of preventable deaths, climate change must be treated like a health emergency.” Carlson claims that climate change has caused about 166,000 deaths per year since 2000, or almost 4 million cumulative deaths. Carlson admits that most of these deaths have been due to malaria in sub-Saharan Africa or malnutrition and diarrheal diseases in South Asia. But he goes on to claim that deaths due to natural disasters and even cardiovascular disease should also be attributed to climate change. If death from cardiovascular disease can be counted as a climate death, almost any death can be counted.

Addressing climate change with behavioral science: A global intervention tournament in 63 countries

SCIENCE ADVANCES – 7 Feb 2024 – Vol 10Issue 6 –DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.adj5778
“Effectively reducing climate change requires marked, global behavior change…A growing body of research across the behavioral sciences has been investigating intervention strategies aimed at boosting sustainable intentions and behaviors such as recycling, public transportation use, and household energy saving (389). For instance, communications aimed at reducing the psychological distance of climate change, by making it feel more geographically, socially, and temporally close, were effective at increasing climate concern and amplifying self-reported intentions to engage in mitigating behaviors, such as reducing energy consumption.”
