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.
As long as one them is Nina Chestney, the authoress this creepy article, it would probably be worth it.
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.
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.
The Earth is going to completely implode unless we make liberals rich right now!!!!!
An estimated 55 million die each year globally.
Didn’t Al Gore say its supposed to be in 2016?
Isn’t that what the environmental radicals want? Fewer humans?
OMG I will be 84 years old, at the prime of life! Quick! Quick! Pass Cap and trade so I will live to 90! Oh wait, I will probably not last another 10 years.
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.
On the bright side, it'll be a scuba diver's paradise!
