NTZ cites Salby as saying
40,000 people perished last winter alone in Europe due to hypothermia because they could not afford to heat their homes, he reminds us.This is truly beyond stupid. We're supposed to warm up the entire world for the next 100,000 years by enough degrees (5C? 10C?) to prevent hypothermia so these relatively few people, who need better furnaces and insulation from their governments, can stay warm?
That's just beyond absurd. It's like cooling down your entire house so you can keep ice cream on the kitchen counter.
It's a lame, desperate argument and I can't believe a so-called scientist -- or any intelligent person -- would ever try to use it.
If you think the 120 ppm increase in atmospheric CO2 is natural -- from an increase in temperature -- here's a question for you.
Why has 1°C of modern warming lead to a 120 ppm increase in atmospheric when the 8°C warming after the last glacial period only lead to a 100 ppm increase.
