Skip to comments.5 Million Deaths From Climate Change Pedicted By 2020
Posted on 12/04/2010 9:32:36 AM PST by Williams
Written by Karl Burkart Theres 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.

Get a load of the 11 nations that produced this!
There are some really fragile people out there if a half a degree temperature change is going to kill you.
From the same outfit that believes that the only good baby is a dead baby.
Those 11 Nations all want more Money!
Hopefully all 5 Million will be proponents who’ve elected to limit their CO2 emissions....
Only 1/10th the number that could be directly tied to liberal stupidity.
But wait, isn’t that what the globalists want? Less humans?
And they are all going to freeze to death.
“...CVF (Climate Vulnerable Forum) an alliance of 11 nations* that are experiencing the most direct impacts of climate change.....”
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.
Oh my!!! Think of ALL that ‘lost’ tax revenue!!!!
WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!!!! AAAAHHHH!!!!
Haven’t more than 5 million Rwandan people been killed by the Rwandan government?
Thank god, I thought this was something to worry about, then I remembered about 1 million people die in traffic accidents each year on the planet.
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.
Half of those 5 million will come from carbon emitted by climate conferences.
Who knew Forbes bought out Mad Magazine.
I demand more deaths.
we republicans want you to die and die quickly.
Liars liars, pants on fire... their noses longer than telephone wires.
How many US abortions by 2020?? How many worldwide?
Well they want humans dead so they don’t pollute.
I guess this works for them.
Oh, wow. A whopping 5 million on a planet of more than 6 billion??? Over the next ten years?
Is that even statistically significant?
When will this snake oil peddling end?
One of those 11 countries is Kenya. Imagine that.... Follow the money.
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”.
Ten years ago it was AIDs.
More figures pulled out of someone’s a**.
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.
They may blame it on Climate Change, but it is a convenient explanation for killing people.
Oh yeah, it was climate change.
Five million deaths from ‘’climate change’’? Would these folks feel any better if these five million people fell out of windows?
IMO, a better title would be “5 Million Deaths From Enviromentalism Predicted by 2020”.
They should be happy. 20 years from now, the Global Warming Apocalypse is coming and everyone will die a horrible death. These 5 million have it good.
Yeah, but how many deaths will be human sacrifice to that Aztec god they were all worshipping?
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???
Obama’s wet dream.....he is just hoping they are all Christian Caucasians.
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..."
We’ve enjoyed global warming since the last ice age 10,000 years ago.
This looks a lot more like a list of 11 nations no one wants to move to.
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!
I’m pretty sure 5 million people will die by 2020 in any event.
It’s the liberals that are always yelling about overpopulation and the need to thin the herd. They should be happy...
Let’s hope it’s the right 5 million.
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?
50 million deaths avoided by climate change!
