The apocolyptic visions of Global Warming are intended to provoke the masses to action. Hence, every week a new alarming report is released.
Sooner or later, the alarmists will probably overplay their hand and these doomsday pronounciations will become farcical.
Actually, I think they just did.
The new study found that temperature rises had a significant impact on the number of pre-schoolers presenting to emergency departments for fever and gastroenteritis.
The University of Sydney research is the first to make a solid link between climate changes and childhood illness.
“And now global warming is becoming more apparent, it is highly likely an increasing number of young children will be turning up at hospital departments with these kinds of common illnesses,” said researcher Lawrence Lam, a paediatrics specialist.
Fact – High temperature corollates with an increase in children with fevers.
Conclusion – Global Warming will cause children’s heath to suffer.
- Severe foot injuries will increase due to heavy equipment slipping out of blue-collar worker’s sweaty hands. Thereby increasing disparity between economic classes.
- Many more thighs will suffer second and third degree burns directly caused by Global Warming’s effect on leather car upholstery.
- Places like Arizona and New Mexico will suffer from “extreme dry heat”.
UPDATE: Should temperatures reach 450 degrees F. for 30 minutes, one will be able to cook a delicious Tombstone pizza right on the street!!
UPDATE II: Seriously, there may be the beginnings of backlash over the Global Warming hysteria.
From NewsBusters, The Toronto Star on the “Green Jitters”:
One mother, unable to get tickets to the [Al Gore live] show, called U of T and lamented that her daughter, a high-school student, has been unable to sleep since seeing Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth and hoped seeing him live would make her feel better.
ps. Mom is an idiot.
Our very own dsmith points to this article.
Pete Williams, of Somerfield, said: “Concerns over our environment dominate the media at present and kids are exposed to the hard facts as much as anybody.
“While many adults may look the other way, this study should show that global warming is not only hurting the children of the future, it’s affecting the welfare of kids now.
pps More idiocy. Note that kids’ sanity is just another casualty of Global Warming and not say, hysterical grown up like Pete Williams.
I’ve touched on the unnecessary stress put on children with the ecopocolypse hysteria previously.
