Fact: the global rise in temperature over the last 100 years has been less than a degree – if that. The truth is we cannot yet measure a global temperature to a degree yet, and we surely Â couldn’t 100 years ago.
Fact: temperatures have been dropping for the last decade eliminating much of the warming that occurred from 1940 through 2000, as shown below (click to enlarge):
Fact: Sea Ice is growing and has reached all time record levels in Antarctica.Â See hereÂ for the real data.
With all that in mind you have to wonder what planet some people live on:
Climate change kills about 315,000 people a year through hunger, sickness and weather disasters, and the annual death toll is expected to rise to half a million by 2030, a report said on Friday.
The study, commissioned by the Geneva-based Global Humanitarian Forum (GHF), estimates that climate change seriously affects 325 million people every year, a number that will more than double in 20 years to 10 percent of the world’s population (now about 6.7 billion).
Economic losses due to global warming amount to over $125 billion annually — more than the flow of aid from rich to poor nations — and are expected to rise to $340 billion each year by 2030, according to the report.
Pure BS. Absolutely made up and false. Does this amateur report deal with the fact that humanity as exploded in size in the last couple few decades, stretching out into every nook and cranny, which is probably why more people die? Probably not. I cannot believe people are dumb enough to believe this crap. And yet someone paid for this report, probably with our tax money.
