100 Million to Die by 2030 If World Fails to Act on Climate
Scientific American ^ | 26 September 2012 | Nina Chestney

Posted on 09/27/2012 9:43:15 PM PDT by Windflier

LONDON (Reuters) - More than 100 million people will die and global economic growth will be cut by 3.2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said on Wednesday.

As global average temperatures rise due to greenhouse gas emissions, the effects on the planet, such as melting ice caps, extreme weather, drought and rising sea levels, will threaten populations and livelihoods, said the report conducted by humanitarian organization DARA.

It calculated that five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease as a result of climate change and carbon-intensive economies, and that toll would likely rise to six million a year by 2030 if current patterns of fossil fuel use continue.

Obviously if the climate is that dangerous we need to kill it before it kills us.

“100 Million to Die by 2030 If World Fails to Act on Climate”

Barring the second coming or a rapture, I can just about guarantee that at least 100 million people will die by the year 2030, climate change or not.

Ahhhhh we will all be dead by climate change in a few years? Maybe we should re-elect Obamalama, he will put us out of our misery much faster.

If this was true, the commie libs would be keeping it quiet. If a 100 million die because an Algore winter, it would take the heat of of the commie libs who would no longer need to use abortion for population control.

And how many millions have died because we banned DDT worldwide? How many will die if we don’t get a handle on Muslim terror?

There are some issues in the world more important than global warming.

Whether the climate warms or gets colder, it's not a stretch to say that 100 million people will die over the next 18 years.

Heck, if the sun rises in the East over the next 18 years, I can guarantee that 100 million people will die during that period.

If Obama is re-elected in 2012, 100 million people will die by 2030. If Romney is elected, 100 million people will die in the next 18 years.

If every car was taken off the road today, 100 million people will die by 2030.

Only 3.2% less GDP if we do nothing? BFD. But if we kill the
fossil fuel industry we’ll drop by much more than 3.2%. There won’t
be much use for economists in Stone Age II.

If you add annual global abortions, that total might come pretty close
to 100 million deaths per year.

Only 100M? What the hell, http://ask.yahoo.com/20051128.html -— This says”According to our nifty desktop calculator, that works out to roughly 56,597,034 people leaving us every year”

So if only 100M people die, that would be a miracle! CO2 is great!

Only Admiral Nelson, with his plan to detonate the Van Allen Radiation Belt can avert this tragedy.

The UN, sensing that hundreds of billions in gullible liberal funding for the Third World is about to dry up, tries desperately to stop his mission:

Some FReepers see it as a sign of the Apocalypse, and are willing to accept the consequences. (I on the other hand, just enjoy posting pictures of Barbara Eden, however grainy and old.)

As in any Epic Quest, there are setbacks

And apparently, Admiral Nelson and Captain Crane aren't smart enough to avoid the Straits of Hormuz on their way to the South Pole.

Why, oh why, did they get out of the sub? Something about contacting the President on the Trans-Atlantic Cable (because of global climate change, the whole Internet and all forms or radio communication are broke, you see.)

"Could you please queue another picture of Barbara Eden for the crew? Morale is getting low."

Aye, aye, Skipper!

One shot at the radiation belt tragically misfires.

Bora Bora? Ehhh, Bump in the Road. Small price to pay for saving mankind.

The second shot does the trick, and provides a glorious sunset for our heroes to sail off into. [YES: two prepositions to end the sentence and the saga. Take that grammar Nazis!]

All's well that ends well. Even the scary guy in the shark pool comes home safe in my version. [Looks like he'll be starring as Bilbo Baggins in PJ's upcoming The Hobbit.]

Soon to be a movie remake of a television rip-off of a motion picture, starring Roscoe Karns as Admiral Nelson, Joe Biden as one of Barbara Eden's boobs, and Jerry Mathers, as, of course "The Beaver."

By 2030, Global Warming will have completely erased the Analemma on most globes.

Actually it could be more than that after Iran starts passing out ABOMBS like RPG’s.... to the Sand Monkeys..

There are many that would like that..
Less gasoline and coal usage.. you know..

Many forget the “progressives” murdered 100 to 300 million people in the last century.. and made billions miserable..

Funny how the media forgets or overlooks this daily..
Wonder if the progressives would blame the conservatives for the first NUKE going off in an American City..

Obama is progressive as well as Newt and Romney..
