Eric Worrall writes: The BMJ (British Medical Journal), one of the oldest and most distinguished medical journals in the world, has categorically stated that climate change is a more serious issue than Ebola.
According to Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ
“Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions. And action is needed now.”
We have a disease raging out of control in Africa, threatening the borders of America and other Western countries – a disease which may be one mutation away from being utterly unstoppable. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2778022/UN-Ebola-chief-raises-nightmare-prospect-virus-mutate-airborne.html
We have an apparent lack of vigilance against this threat, with US doctors allegedly not considering the possibility of Ebola, when presented with a patient who recently travelled from one of the afflicted countries.
And now we have educated intellectuals, on whose skills we depend to defend us from this threat, attempting to deflect attention away from something which threatens our lives right now, onto something which, even if they are right, cannot possibly threaten anyone’s life for decades to come.
How can a presumably educated person hold a viewpoint which is so stupid?
