I am stuck at home due to a huge ice storm. While snow plowing, one of the tire chains broke as we struggled to clear the road. Winters are extremely dangerous and a huge driver of evolution has been the Ice Ages and the jungle monkeys changed to humans step by step, doing naked during Interglacials and killing for fur during Ice Ages. Well, it is not warming like crazy yet the liberals insist we are still going to roast to death. Another nail in the liberal coffin, this hysteria is destroying liberalism.
I suppose the liberals who also want WWIII with Russia think it will be a breeze marching on Moscow. The delusion is dangerous, to put it mildly. Especially since we are sliding into a climate that makes this impossible.
News from yesterday in Britain: Government ‘tried to bury’ its own alarming report on climate change as British leftists go nuts because it might reach slightly warm temperatures there. Yes, the lying about global warming has not abated at all, the screechers are still hard at it.
The UK Climate Change Risk Assessment Report, which by law has to be produced every five years, was published with little fanfare on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ (Defra) website on 18 January.
The government, embarrassed to death, buried it quietly.
But, despite its undoubted importance, Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom made no speech and did not issue her own statement, and even the Defra Twitter account was silent. No mainstream media organisation covered the report.
The Independent News of London got the story and is very angry about roasting to death. Warning the Queen’s subjects that they will roast to death, this paper is very upset no one is listening. Also, I notice, they don’t allow any comments on any articles about the weather which is hilarious.
These included two “high-risk” issues: the damage expected to be caused by flooding and coastal erosion; and the effect of rising temperatures on people’s health.
The report concluded that the number of heat-related deaths in the UK “could more than double by the 2050s from a current baseline of around 2,000 per year”.
Bob Ward, policy and communications director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment in London, said he was “astonished” at the way such a report had been slipped out.
Bob Ward is a criminal and was part of the conspiracy to twist weather data to make the past colder and the present warmer. He should be arrested. At least no one is listening to him.
“Defra did very little to publicise it – they didn’t even tweet about it,” he said.
“It’s almost as if they were trying to sneak it out without people realising. I have no idea what they were thinking.
A good thing lest they be hauled outside and tarred and feathered. Ward should be hauled outside and tarred and feathered.
Extreme summer temperatures will soon cause deaths of up to 1,700 more Britons a year, says government report…in 2015, two years ago! So this year is hotter, no? Nope.
The Government’s new heatwave plan, citing the latest UK Climate Change Risk Assessment, warns: “There is high confidence that heat-related deaths will increase to between 130 to 1,700 a year by the 2020s.”
So what is killing Brits? Winter death toll ‘to exceed 40,000’—Campaigners say the figures are a “tragedy” and that more should be done to help vulnerable elderly people…in the same year, 2015. Wow. That is roughly 40 times more dead from cold than from heat.
So what is more important? Making winters warmer or summers colder? Easy to see the answer, of course. Except we don’t control the temperature. So preparing for bad weather means worrying a great deal about cold, not heat.
Deaths linked to freezing temperatures soared by 30% to 31,000 last winter: 3,000 more staff hired to prevent a repeat this year!
The cold weather death toll this winter is expected to top 40,000, the highest number for 15 years. Male deaths rose from 10,590 to 13,100, female deaths up 13,610 to 18,000. Campaigners condemn latest figures as a ‘national scandal’ as Ministers scramble to hire more doctors and nurses for this winter.
From last June: Many, many more people die of cold than heat even in warm climates. People don’t realize that living in warm places makes one more, not less, vulnerable to the cold. I grew up in the desert and can attest to that. If it was 28 degrees F I would be very cold. After living for 40 years in a very cold place, I consider that ‘warm’ in winter and don’t even bother with a coat.
Cold weather is 20 times as deadly as hot weather, and it’s not the extreme low or high temperatures that cause the most deaths, according to a study published Wednesday.
The study — published in the British journal The Lancet — analyzed data on more than 74 million deaths in 13 countries between 1985 and 2012. Of those, 5.4 million deaths were related to cold, while 311,000 were related to heat.
Because the study included countries under different socio-economic backgrounds and with varying climates, it was representative of temperature-related deaths worldwide, the study said. The sharp distinction between heat- and cold-related deaths is because low temperatures cause more problems for the body’s cardiovascular and respiratory systems, it added.
“Public-health policies focus almost exclusively on minimizing the health consequences of heat waves,” Gasparrini said. “Our findings suggest that these measures need to be refocused and extended to take account of a whole range of effects associated with temperature.”
The stupid global warming ideology is KILLING PEOPLE. It is destructive. It is dangerous. It is also heartless. Many of the demonstrators against Trump were angry that it might be warm which is insane especially since support for Hillary came mostly from super warm places like the California coast.
They were complaining last month about being hot and dry. Now it is cold and wet even in San Diego. Serves them right, the Gods gave them what they demanded in spades…it is flooding there now.
