A new study published in the peer reviewed journal Climate Change revealed that the phenomenon of global warming is likely to lead to lower human death rates. The research by professors Christidis, Donaldson, and Stott found that 0.7 deaths per million persons per year could be attributed to higher temperatures in the hottest areas, while 85 deaths per million persons per year could be attributed to lower temperatures in the coldest areas. For every one life lost due to increased heat 121 lives are saved.
Climate guru Al Gore challenged the premises of the research as possibly racist and most certainly species biased. The coldest regions are inhabited mostly by white people, whereas the warmest are inhabited by mostly non-white people. So, saving 100 lives of white people at the cost of one life lost among non-white people is math that strikes me as implicitly racist.
Aside from the differential impact between different races of humans there is the issue of impact on non-humans, Gore continued. Humans arent an endangered species. Many other animals are. For example, there are more than six billion humans, but only about 20,000 polar bears. With such a big surplus of humans wouldnt sacrificing some be worthwhile if we can save more polar bears by making the planet colder?

I’d LOL, but California broke many, many records for cold on Thanksgiving, some over 100 years old. The windshild on my motor home cracked last night. Meanwhile, fat Albert lives in carbon credit luxury.
If it saves lives, the watermelons will be against it.
well, let’s get as rediculous as Al Gore, shall we? of the six billion humans on earth, how many are ‘white’ europeans ? say, at most, one billion or 17%? So they are outnumbered five to one by all other races (asian being the largest group at 60%). Since most ‘white’ populations are ageing populations that practiced ‘replace yourself’ population control for several decades, as opposed to other races who did not practice such population self-control and have much younger populations, then shouldn’t we class ‘white’ people as endangered as the polar bears?
E’gore is not only a bigot but a racist himself. iMO
Though this be satire, it's very close to what happens in Real Life™. I heard once about some academic numbskulls who were ragging on the Mercator projection as a racist concept, because it made northern land areas (inhabited by whites) look bigger on the map than equatorial ones (inhabited by non-whites).
You really gotta be careful with satire — the truth of liberalism leaves no room for parody.
