New York University predicts 69,000 annual US deaths from “climate change” by the year 3,000.
Besides the fact that their numbers are meaningless nonsense they pulled out from where the sun never shines, they appear incapable of any rational thought. Without fossil fuels, 350 million Americans would die by 2016.
During the low CO2 years starting in 108 BC, China had 1,800 major famines which killed hundreds of millions of people.
The 1931 Chinese flood killed one third of the people in Wu-Han, China. Total death toll was around three million.
Academics are completely out of touch with reality, as is the US government and the press corps. We live in dangerous times, with complete lunatics in charge.
if they could just guarantee they’d all be lefties, well, then ok.
The governments in the west are truly nucking futz. 9/11 occurs and the response of the USA? DOUBLE the muslim immigrants per year. Problems with illegal immigration and drug running across the Mexican border? Refuse to build the border fence and allowing thousands of firearms to be sold to the Mexican drug cartels. On top of that remove border patrol personnel and call up the border state national guards and send them overseas.
We don’t need enemies we have them sitting in our seats of government!
Has anyone bothered to look at the projected US population in the year 3000?…and what a ridiculously small percentage that is?
About 21,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes, according to the United Nations. This is one person every four seconds, as you can see on this display. Sadly, it is children who die most often.
So by even the UN’s admission, diverting resources away from the starving and towards climate change will kill over 651,525,000 humans by the year 2100, at the present rate.
Gee, what should we do?
And 17 million yearly deaths from obesity world-wide.
Sugar is one of the biggest killers in our modern era, killing perhaps 3 times as many as cigarettes (http://www.olsonnd.com/what-kills-more-people-sugar-or-cigarettes/).
HFCS is added to thousands of foods. Millions of children are consuming several hundred percent more sugar than the body can handle. Diabetes rates expected to double by 2030 (http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/news/20040426/diabetes-rates-worldwide), and many kids are on legal cocaine known as “Ritalin” or by other names. Anti-cholesterol medications do nothing to prevent heart disease but are now being prescribed to children for preventative measures. They’re drugging the children and over-vaccinating them. Pharmaceuticals are seeping into our water supplies and drugging the whole nation.
“In a recent news story, the Associated Press (“AP”) has stated that, “A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans. It is possible that traces of these pharmaceuticals are actually in most of our water supplies across the country.” http://novusdetox.com/newsletter_new/3-12-08.php
Get a good water filtration system.
The AGW fear mongering is David Blaine slight of hand magic and hypnosis to distract away from other pertinent issues and policies that actually do cause real and present dangers. Environ-mentalists?
This crap is getting depressing.
Is there any chance for an outbreak of sanity?
Or are the Martins of the world going to somehow take over?
I have wondered where there might be a good place to move to when things really get crazy, and recently I have begun to wonder if the place may be…Russia!
Only problem is…I do not like cold weather.
Have to remember not to drop any chewing gum on the sidewalk of course, but…
No fossil fuels, and 350 million dead Americans is the Big Green Machine dream.
Here on the opposite coast, I’m in the shadow of another great temple of lore, the Alma mater of the great sages Schneider and Ehrlich. Yay!
What, no one picked up on the tweet erroneously bringing an alleged far future consequence into a much closer timeframe [3000->2100]?
