Imaginary Crisis Causes 315,000 Deaths per Year

If anything reported in Roto-Reuters can be believed, the global warming crisis — which has recently been renamed the "climate change" crisis because it hasn't gotten any warmer for 11 years now — kills hundreds of thousands per year!

Climate change kills about 315,000 people a year through hunger, sickness and weather disasters, and the annual death toll is expected to rise to half a million by 2030, a report said on Friday.

The study is by the Global Humanitarian Forum, whose president is none other than Kofi Annan of oil-for-food scam fame. He shamelessly lies:

Climate change is the greatest emerging humanitarian challenge of our time, causing suffering to hundreds of millions of people worldwide. The first hit and worst affected are the world's poorest groups, and yet they have done least to cause the problem.

Wait: I thought this fictitious climate crisis was caused by pollution. Why not send the bill to China, India, and Brazil? Travelers will attest the air is much easier to breathe in the USA, a country wealthy enough (for now) to afford the luxury of environmental safeguards.

Annan's objective is the same as when he was top bureauweenie in the gang of corrupt dictators known as the United Nations: to thwart and steal from productive Americans — this time with an economic suicide pact to be signed in Copenhagen. Listen to him crank up the hyperbole:

Copenhagen needs to be the most ambitious international agreement ever negotiated. The alternative is mass starvation, mass migration and mass sickness.

International climate crusaders need to loot America quickly, before the last of our wealth goes up in a puff of Hope and Change. Barbara Stocking, chief executive of Oxfam in Britain and a GHF board member, makes clear what Copenhagen is all about:

Funding from rich countries to help the poor and vulnerable adapt to climate change is not even 1 percent of what is needed. This glaring injustice must be addressed at Copenhagen in December.

When moonbat thugs haul out the word "injustice," grab hold of your wallet with both hands.

Arafat's gone, but his buddy Annan is still in business.

On a tip from Gary B.

Fuck this. Leftism has killed more people than anything on the face of the earth. Ever. Between the 150 million deaths attributed to Communism and the 800,000 who have died every year since the DDT ban, they have some pretty bloody hands.

well if it's about to kill in the millions, this ought to make the "earth first" people happy - what're they b*tching about?

they cannot have it both ways.

Mother nature has this funny way of cleansing itself of the weak and no amount of money or man made 'laws' is going to change that. Hell, mankind probably isn't going to inhabit this planet in a few thousand years from now anyway. We'll go by the way of the dinosaurs. Stoopid moonbats.

Another variation of the stock liberal headline "World To End Tomorrow: Women, Minorities Hardest Hit", followed quickly by "So give us all of your money".

I love the laughable precision. 315,000 deaths. Not 314,000, not 316,000, but 315,000.

Meanwhile, grownups are unclear on how many people die from, say, bacterial infection each year, because many terminally ill people actually die from bacterial pneumonia rather than whatever made them terminally ill. Should such people be counted as deaths from the terminal disease, or from the bacterial infection that actually finished them off? Yet these guys can attribute mortalities with great precision, sight unseen.

Jay, how about the deaths from Malaria from the banning of DDT?

They should have made their numbers precise like a tax return: 314,996.

Aren't these some of the same guys that want to reduce the earth's population by 90%? Yet they'll use the threat of a few thousand deaths to try to scare us into forking over power and money to them?

With these statistics, shouldn't at least one or two members of Congress, the UN, etc.. have died recently due to "climate change"?

If not, then WHY??

"... and mass sickness."

Shoot, we've already got that. It's called Obamunism. It's acolytes can be found constantly grabbing for my wallet for... [fill in the blank], but particularly to stop the Satanic Gases "before we all die." [what a crock]

This sort of thinking reminds me of those who demand peace and demand it now. I would wager there has not been one day of peace on this planet since the first organism arose. And in like manner, as abhorrent as it may seem, that war is a natural regulator of population growth and no effort we attempt will ever change that fact.

Karin, good point. If I stroke out doing interval training this weekend, call 'em up and tell 'em they're off by one.

You lose.
The 1950s TV program "The Big Picture" used the estimate that durring all recorded time, there has been about 250 years without a war somewhere.

This is an example of Liberals NON- belief in evolution. Part of evolution is adaptation and "survival of the fitest". Liberals insist that the world change to suit them and will not fight for the survival themselves or their society.
In a hundred years, "Liberals" will be dead as the dodo bird. (Sorry, SPURWING PLOVER)

Enviromentalism has cuased the deaths of thousands of inocents RACHEAL CARSON lied by time in her book SILENT SPRING the facts are tha DDT wasnt harming birds the greens have much blood on their green hands

Posted by: Spurwing Plover at May 29, 2009 2:36 PM

223,497,665,327,009* Mosquitoes lived wonderful, long lives because of the DDT ban.

And millions of leaches (liberals) get the credit.

* See how easy it is to make up numbers?

Jimbo, 87.6% of all statistics are made up on the spot....

Well at least Yassir Arafat is dead.

Mr. EvilWrench- "Aren't these some of the same guys that want to reduce the earth's population by 90%?"

Well, yes. But that must include the evil, white, middle-class, robbers of happiness, as soon as possible. Otherwise what's the point?
