5 Million Deaths From Climate Change Pedicted By 2020
forbes.com ^ | 12/03/10 | Karl Burkart

Posted on 12/04/2010 9:32:36 AM PST by Williams

Written by Karl Burkart There’s no doubt United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change delegates are feeling a great deal of pressure to make some tangible progress here at the COP16 climate conference in Cancun.

But that pressure may be ratcheted up a notch after the Dec. 3 release of the Climate Vulnerability Monitor, the first definitive study of the impacts of climate change on human health. The report was prepared by DARA, a leading humanitarian research organization in conjunction with the CVF (Climate Vulnerable Forum) an alliance of 11 nations* that are experiencing the most direct impacts of climate change.....

Not surprisingly, most of those impacted will be children and women in the poorest parts of the world. The data charts provided in the report reveal a tragic irony — the countries that pollute the most are affected the least....

Africa starts out worse, and gets far worse with mortality doubling while habitat and economic losses quadruple. DARA director Ross Mountain tries to put these findings in perspective: If we let pressures more than triple, or worse, no amount of humanitarian assistance or development aid is going to stem the suffering and devastation. Highly fragile countries will become graveyards over which we pour billions of dollars....

The report, though sobering, does end on a brighter note with 50 measures that governments can begin implementing right now to stave off the worst impacts predicted by the Climate Vulnerability Monitor.

The 11 nations are Bangladesh, Barbados, Bhutan, Kiribati, Ghana, Kenya, Nepal, Rwanda, Tanzania, Vietnam and Maldives. Karl Burkart blogs for the Mother Nature Network.

Almost every sentence of this made my head want to explode. Unbelievable. Literally unbelievable.

There are some really fragile people out there if a half a degree temperature change is going to kill you.

Hopefully all 5 Million will be proponents who’ve elected to limit their CO2 emissions....

Should read: “CVF (Climate Vulnerable Forum), an alliance of 11 nations* that are hoping to score big bucks out of climate change ....”

One thing they don’t tell you is that if the climate stayed exactly as it is today, how many deaths would occur in the same time frame? They also do not address the dictators in the poorest countries and the murders that occur by these dictators. They want us to, as a modern nation, feed the world. We can’t do that and we shouldn’t have to. I’m not saying that we don’t have any concerns for people of poorer nations but they need to stand up for themselves as our country did when it was first founded.

A totally biased report, evil men survive women and children die, rich countries not affected, East Africa the most affected (Surprise! /s), we have to do FIFTY things to correct this, Nepal helped produce this - militarily controlled by the Red Chinese for decades, and obviously all natural disasters like typhoons and tidal waves are included in this outrageously bogus report. Just the list of fraudulent NGO’s behind this is enough to make you sick.

Is that even statistically significant?

If it really warmed, wouldn’t Canada be able to feed the world? They missed little details like that.

I GUARANTEE this report is met with oohs and ahhs at that ridiculous “summit”.

If you’re going to lie, make it a BIG lie:

“500 million sure to die because of climate change.”

Do you think these fools ever bothered to run the numbers of how many more might live given the additional crops that might be grown on a warmer earth? Not a chance.

Oh yeah, it was climate change.

The whole report reads like a satire. I wouldn’t rely on those 11 countries to produce a report on the effects of ass pimples. It’s completely ludicrous.

Ghana has figured this all out? And none of it is their fault it’s actually mine???

If you go to their site and download their methodology pdf... You'll see that the entire thing is based on the notion that large scale climate change is happening. In other words, you have to make that leap - ie. gloss over the facts - and then accept their entirely subjective "methodology"... This isn't science, it is fiction.

Moreover, due to the limitations of available data, not all indicators used in the index have the same baseline years.

In other words, "What little actual data we did use, we cherry picked..."

Utter BS.

I have a neighbor who is a highly trained climate scientist who predicts there could be 76 million deaths from climate change by 2041. He’s just not as accurate predicting the weather next week.

“Only 1/10th the number that could be directly tied to liberal stupidity.”

EXACTLY. How many will die from malaria, as a result of that idiotic ban on DDT? Most of those countries are in malaria-endemic areas. They’re worrying about the wrong thing!

Five million deaths over ten years across the planets from floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, droughts, heat waves, and storms

In other words: 5 million over ten years due to the Earth’s WEATHER.

Oooh! A tornado is forming! Your fault for driving a car! Therefore, give me money!

Well, I heard Harry Reid this morning raise the tax ante from "700 billion in debt to give to millionaires and billionaires" to "a four trillion dollar bailout for billionaires."

So I guess a hypothetical one-tenth degree increase in some temperatures in some places can kill five million people all over the world. Yeah sure, I believe it--why not?
