WH Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy: Climate Change Is "The Most Significant Public Health Challenge Of Our Time"
But climate reality disagrees: After 100 years of climate change, ‘climate-related deaths’ approach zero – Dropped by over 99% since 1920
Climate activists are setting the stage for this: Calls to add ‘climate change’ to death certificates – New study demands ‘climate change’ be added as ‘pre-existing condition’Of course, presenting science to counter a claim does not work if that science is declared 'racist': ‘The data is racist!’ Rhode Island professor denounces ‘science, statistics, and technology’ as ‘inherently racist’#Climate Staticistian Bjorn Lomborg calls Gina McCarthy's claims "silly": "Heart disease kills 33% and cancer 26% of all Americans. Heat kills 0.3% and declining. Cold 6.4% and increasing. Heat deaths have declined precipitously in the US since 1960s, much of it because of widespread availability of air conditioning.Across world, heat deaths typically (& surprisingly) small compared to cold deaths. Here [is] India: Each year, 584,300 die from moderate cold. 47,800 die from extreme cold. Yet, almost all stories on India's extreme weather is extreme heat (25,100/yr). Moreover, most heat deaths are rather easy to tackle (which is why they are declining), bc only affect people for a few days. Cold deaths much worse, because they require months of good heating (why they increase).What about extreme weather deaths? "These are almost nil, because societies know how to reduce deaths dramatically. Air pollution is a big deal, but almost orthogonal to climate — cutting air pollution is much cheaper (scrubbers) than cutting CO₂ (replace with renewables)."Posted August 31, 20205:24 PM by Admin | Tags: coronavirus, health, media, new study
- Scientific American: ‘What Climate Change Does to the Human Body’ – Doctor: ‘In my own practice, I explain to patients how the climate crisis affects their health’
Neelu Tummala, M.D., is an ENT doctor with George Washington Medical Faculty Associates and a climate advocate with a special interest in the intersection of climate and health: "In my own practice, I explain to patients how the climate crisis affects their health. For example, apart from contributing to global warming, rising carbon dioxide levels increase the amount of pollen that plants produce as a consequence of higher rates of photosynthesis. This rise in pollen levels can lead to worsening allergy symptoms."

Climate ‘scam’: An ‘all-encompassing fraud’ with ‘authoritarians & corporatists bent on achieving even more centralized political power & economic wealth’
Ed Ring: What is actually beyond debate is not that we are in a climate crisis but that if we don’t stop destroying our conventional energy economy, we are going to be in a civilizational crisis. Energy is the foundation of everything—prosperity, freedom, upward mobility, national wealth, individual economic independence, functional water and transportation infrastructure, commercial-scale agriculture, mining, and industry. Without energy, it all goes dark. And “renewables” are not even remotely capable of replacing oil, gas, coal, nuclear, and hydroelectric power. It’s impossible. The only people who think renewables are capable of replacing conventional energy are either uninformed, innumerate, or corrupt. Period. ...
Were America’s oil and gas companies simply supposed to believe all these nascent theories and shut down? What exactly should they have done, back in the mid-1960s, to cope with this allegedly looming climate emergency? Were solar panels and wind turbines ready for rapid deployment back then? Of course not, especially since solar panels from China, and wind turbines from Germany, are still not capable of providing more than a small fraction of the energy we need. The real crime, if you want to call it that, isn’t that oil and gas companies questioned climate change theories back in the 1960s or ’70s. It’s that they’re accepting them now.
