More tax-payer paid tripe on projected Global Warming deaths from"scientists"

A devastating new paper along the typical "we are all gunna die" theme has been published stating that a temperature rise of 2 degrees C will cause a loss of 381 years of life per year by 2050 - not 380 or 382 but 381 giving the impression of great accuracy. Of course using "years of life" inflates the figures rather than simply stating numbers of heat related fatalities as the figures quoted could be equated to 5 babies or 20 middle aged people. It is patently obvious to any moderately intelligent person that across Australia a modest increase in temperature would result in less overall fatalies as   people are more susceptible to cold than heat and that should have been the headline instead of the alarmist rubbish printed. Of course we have had an enormous increase in air-conditioning installed in the last decade and it can be assumed that that trend will continue which will also reduce heat stress. People move from the south to retire in Queensland where the average temperatures are 6 degrees warmer than Sydney and according to these turkeys this will be a death sentence for a number of them. Never mind they will get a grant to publish more malarkey on the perils of Warming.


 A GLOBAL temperature rise of 2C by 2050 would result in increased loss of life, a new Queensland study has found.



Scientists from the Queensland University of Technology and the CSIRO examined the "years of life lost" due to climate change, focusing on Brisbane.


"A two-degree increase in temperature in Brisbane between now and 2050 would result in an extra 381 years of life lost per year in Brisbane," lead researcher Associate Professor Adrian Barnett, from the university's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, said.


"A two-degree increase in temperature is the figure in the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says is dangerous, but could be reached unless more aggressive measures are undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

  1. Alice in Wonderland Quotes From the Queen and King:

    “There is no use trying; one can't believe impossible things." (Alice)

    "I dare say you haven't had much practice. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Queen


    The AGW High Priests are sounding more like the Queen every day. And the media are lapping it up and telling the scientifically-ignorant population that it's true. And many of them believe it. Sigh.
