Question For Monbiot/Romm : How Many People Have Been Killed By Carbon Taxes So Far This Winter?

According to Age UK (formerly Help the Aged and Age Concern), more than 30,000 older people die every year from preventable causes over the winter months.

Michelle Mitchell, Age UK charity director, said, “The simple fact that the UK has one of the highest winter mortality rates in Europe – higher than even Sweden or Finland – makes it clear this is very much a home-grown problem.

“Behind these shocking statistics lie deep-seated social issues, such as 3.5 million older people in fuel poverty – a figure that could rise even further under the combined pressure of soaring energy bills and plummeting temperatures.”

Someday, we all have to meet our maker. Can you face him? This isn’t some bullshit from a climate model in 100 years. This is happening in the real world, right now.

    wettest oct-dec in the high sierra ever, and most snow ever in 1 month in december at mammoth mountain. if the NAO goes deep again we may get another semi-tropical connection in a week or two…more rain and snow for the permanently drought stricken southwest!

  2. If all those frozen dead people aren’t proof of global warming I don’t know what is /sarc,

    Aha! Maybe we can all pay another tax so that we can save all the people they have put into fuel poverty by taxing them for all the “global warming”. /sarc

    what do they need fuel for anyway? Heating? sure it’s warm outside? /sarc

    Damn that climate change stuff makes people more sarcastic!

  3. This is happening in the real world, right now.

    Ahhh, finally, someone beginning to hit on the REAL problem we have here. This subject has been bothering me as of late too. The death tolls this winter are quite disturbing, especially when considering the REAL sources of these (preventable) deaths. And to think that all the money we have already spent on AGW bullshit research could have prevented many of these deaths, just makes one want to puke.

      I agree, I’ve harped on this until I’m blue.

      This is a total disgrace and not excusable.
      Just stop and think of the pain and suffering,
      freezing to death in your own home, because you
      can’t afford heat.

      Where are all the goody self appointed liberals when
      it’s there own agenda that’s killing people?

    Oh yes, the Malthusians will be lurvin’ it, alarmists who pontificate about a warming world and glamourise, the installation of useless palliatives and then express their mindless zeal, in the good that they are doing for the planet and the human race, should reflect on the above statements of FACTS and this:

    It is bad, what’s even worse is the poorest pay more for their electricity if you do not have a bank account (or maybe) not online – you are unable to take advantage of direct debit or online account savings/switching accounts, those using meters pay even more!

    Then there is this, even Monbiot ‘gets it’!!

    Poor people and people who live on ‘unsuitable houses’ or flats, will subsidise richer consumers, able to take advantage of feed in tariffs, solar panels and wind turbines – Aka, chocolate Teapot technology, how fair is that? FFS!

    All because a few nutters err IPCC quasi-scientists tell us the world is warming (Ha) due to mankind’s additional emissions of a harmless and bountiful life giving gas……….it would be funny but it is costing people’s lives.

  6. NoMoreGore says:

    Climate Pseudoscience claims to be a lot of things trying to solve an imaginary problem.

    But what it truly is fits perfectly with what it truly does. It crushes prosperity, hopes and dreams – for everyone but the criminals sucking up our tax dollars.

    It crushes humanity with a sick twisted Malthusian obsession. There never was a “green economy” for new entrepreneurs. That was a diversion. It’s a Malevolent vortex of destruction. May we never enter it.

  7. truthsword says:

    Well there is a high mortality rate track record with liberals trying to fix the world, like DDT or now AGW… they end up killing millions more than nature… it’s quite sad and sick.

  8. Andy Weiss says:

    If this cold continues, there are probably going to be fuel shortages and if that happens, we a’int seen nothing yet!

    The fault will lie with those forecasts of a mild winter, which caused producers to not refine enough heating fuel going into winter.
