How “Climate Actions” Actually Kill People, Not Save Them

By Vijay Jayaraj – February 1, 2022

Many have heard about the advocacy for insect food to fight climate change. And about vegan lab meat, promoted as an environment-friendly substitute for animal protein. But asking people to turn off their heat and expecting them to survive winter’s cold? That is a whole new level of absurdity that risks lives.

With households anticipating unaffordably high energy bills, a U.K. power utility suggested that people cuddle their pets to stay warm. The statement sparked outrage, and an apology was issued. However, the apparent lack of sympathy for the well-being of people reflects a disturbing state of climate culture poisoning the world.

Climate crusaders calling for personal sacrifices to save the planet seem oblivious to immediate dangers many of their “solutions” pose for real lives — sometimes billions of them — especially in developing countries where people face persistent poverty. Climate diplomacy and green policies are already causing havoc where economic growth and daily life are being threatened by a constraint on access to affordable energy.

In China, for example, people were left to freeze as the country’s restrictive coal-use policy resulted in an energy crunch that left citizens with limited heating options. Last year, more than a dozen provinces experienced unprecedented power cuts due to coal shortages, a situation that could have been avoided if Beijing had not distracted itself with a green agenda. Industries were shut, and people were forced into unemployment.

Not far from Beijing is India, where the country’s 300 million poorest have already experienced every form of energy deprivation. They lack access to uninterrupted electricity and use unclean cooking fuel that put millions at risk of early death. Recent studies have shown that even some urbanites do not have access to clean cooking fuel, a reality that I witness in my neighborhood in southern India. Unsafe fuel usage is still the largest source of indoor air pollution.

Sub-Saharan Africa has one of the worst electrification rates, with 597 million people without electricity access in 2021. Around 850 million Africans still do not have clean cooking fuel.

Energy writer Iain Esau points out that “Africa’s estimated death toll of 60,000 from Covid-19 represents just 12% of fatalities from indoor pollution.” Turning a blind eye to a problem bigger than COVID-19 is pure madness. Whether the climate elitists like it or not, fossil fuels will bring immediate relief to this killer of the world’s most impoverished.

Also, it is not the just he poor who are affected. Middle-income families and small-scale industries unable to afford a generator backup suffer the consequences of unstable electricity. In the apartment building where I live, people are left immobile when elevators stop working. This seriously disrupts everyday life and is particularly difficult for the elderly who are incapable of climbing stairs.

Loss of productive hours is common for people who work remotely from home, including myself as I type this in the middle of a blackout. Even worse are power cuts after sunset, which literally bring all of life to a grinding halt. Precious late evening hours are lost to darkness, followed by a difficult night’s sleep without air conditioning or an electric fan in 104°F heat.

The situation will only get worse if developing countries compromise their existing energy security based on fossil fuels and begin to embrace irrational green policies.

Not even developed Western economies are invincible to effects of unrealistic green energy programs. Scores of countries — among them the U.K., Germany and the U.S. — have experienced unprecedented energy price hikes and fuel shortages during the last few years — the results of officialdom’s hostility to fossil fuels.

Further, geopolitics has exacerbated the negative consequences of poor energy policies in recent weeks. Some experts have predicted as much as a 30% increase in home energy prices in parts of Europe. The U.K.’s Evening Standard reported it is likely “that more than a third of families with children at home will reduce other expenditures such as food and luxuries if their energy bills go up significantly.”  Households in Germany have been notified that their gas bills will rise sharply in 2022. If Europe had not taken the green route, it would have been less dependent on imported energy and in a better position to absorb energy shortages from political instability.

In the Third World, price hikes of such magnitude would institute immediate poverty for billions — and death sentences to millions.

Many counties voted close to 50-50. It’s impossible to believe that the ones that barely tipped to Trump have twice the death rate – especially since about 1/2 of the total deaths occurred before most of the population was vaccinated. In addition, almost all of the most populous counties went for Biden but many of those were the ones who were hit the hardest.

No they don’t. They just need less gerrymandering. In 2020 look at the popular vote:

Mark,
Democrats are also guilty of gerrymander but no where near as organised as the republicans.

Also presidential elections are currently heavily biased towards small rural states which again favours Republicans. The number of seats in congress (and thus electoral college votes) has not increased since 1913 despite the increase in population since then means that voters in large states like California or Texas get proportionally less and less representation in the electoral college. Increasing the number of seats in congress to ensure that every district had the same number of voters would go a long way to restoring democratic balance to the US.

The consequences of the policies of the political & economic elite do not affect them so they don’t care. Whether it is “climate change”, Covid response, defund the police…they financially benefit while they are isolated from the consequences, so they don’t care. And in most situations they don’t even pretend to care because they know they can’t be removed from power. (California’s governor hair gel is a perfect example.)

As much as I don’t like the pain and suffering that will certainly be inflicted, it is necessary.
People voted for the stupid politicians enabling this: Merkel, BoJo, Newsom, Biden, AOC. They won’t stop voting stupid until the resulting pain is too great to bear. Unfortunately, the rest of us also suffer the same pain.

So get proactive, and hasten their political demise. That isn’t here at WUWT. (The ‘climate science’ was long ago shown nonsense nonscience, to borrow an essay title from ebook Blowing Smoke.) Action is at precinct, county, and state level politics. Go for it.

You seem to have made a typographical error. In reality
Bojo (sic) was the worst of a bad bunch
as even his closest political friends and advisors are now acknowledging by leaving his sinking ship.

Boris Johnson is a dangerous liar who lacks any honour, integrity and honesty.
We have the UK Supreme Court and HRH to thank for stopping his attempt to gain dictatorial powers by proroguing Parliament (which had the same intent as burning the Reichstag). This forced Boris to call a General Election which he won by a landslide. That victory was because few of the public could believe Boris was as despicable as he was, he is, and as everyone now knows he is because it has been revealed to all by the Parliamentary scrutiny which Boris attempted to prevent by the prorogation.

Our best hope now is that the Metropolitan Police will rapidly complete their investigation, publish it and apply the fixed term fine to Boris so we can get rid of him before he does much more harm to the UK.

And please don’t respond with the nonsense that Boris got Brexit done: ask the DUP, the fishing industry, the farming industries and countless others if Brexit is yet “done” or is a work in progress that has hardly started.

With the shakeup in the Conservative party here in canada I’m trying to get my calgary MPs to listen and learn.
They can even pretend to be concerned about “climate change” but still point out that Trudeau’s “green dreams” are futile nonsense, and instead push a rational policy to leverage our real natural advantages, LNG and Nuclear.
Both for our grid and for export.

Europe gives cover for this rational policy that will make us fabulously wealthy and actually measurably slow CO2 growth (if that’s what floats the boat of the climate insane).

It’s not hard to have a rational policy that can be sold to those who bought the scam and yet end up with a rock solid electrical grid and massive national wealth.

Question 2: Related to the 2016 – current hiatus, are there places in the world that are still seeing isolated warming and if so should those places be worried or is that just indicative of natural variability? I’m asking because I live the Southwest which according to the media and the UAH is one the faster warming places since 1979 or so.

In my view, radical environmentalists, at least those relating to Global weather, are notable by their conflicting beliefs on climate and weather. Examples include:
1.Believe that Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) will make earth unlivable in less than 2 generations, but then call it Climate Change because actual thermometer data doesn’t support it.
2. Believe that the cause of CAGW is humans burning fossil fuel for energy but oppose nuclear power to replace it.
3. Believe that complex computer models prove CAGW but dismiss measured data that proves the models are inaccurate.
4. Believe that warm weather is proof of CAGW but dismiss cold weather as just ‘normal’.
5. Believe that droughts and floods, hot waves and cold waves, record clouds and record sunshine, record high temperatures and record cold temperatures, and any other weather report, all offer proof that CAGW is happening right now. 

I believe that Greata is simply a child who has been misled by adults in her life, and deserves our pity, not our scorn.

Environmentalists consider humans to be part of the environment and want to protect the environment so that it can be enjoyed by human.
Radical environmentalists don’t consider humans to be part of nature and believe that the only way to protect the environment is to totally exclude humans from the environment. They believe that any change to nature that is caused by humans is evil and must be fought by every means possible with no regards to how many humans are hurt in the process.

Because there is now “Too Much Government”

Government is now the crowd that Charles Mackay wrote about = the one that has gone mad and it is on a stampede.
Because it is now such a large crowd that has gone mad, very few inside of it can see out – that is the ‘reality disconnect’ which many see as madness

Most certainly not helped by leaders who have purposely ‘tuned out’ – most notably a drunk and a demented shell

It dawned recently that Boris Johnson is a re-incarnation of Henry 8th.

  • How many wives has Boris had?
  • Look at him in some of his photos, he’s more stooped tha The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • He is a fat diabetic wreck ## – just like Henry was
  • Henry was as painfully addicted to sugar as is Boris is to booze
  • Neither of them had/has very cordial relations with the rest of Europe
  • Henry set off the Little Ice Age by chopping all the trees
  • Boris is chopping trees with his Net Zero and the energy policies that come with it are causing ice ages – inside people’s own homes

## Covid damn near killed Boris while obesity is The Number One co-morbidity – just How Many C19 deaths are actually just that, death via fatness?
Even before the low nutrient diet that occasions obesity starves its victims of Vitamins C and D
Also Zinc and Vitamin B if they drank any amount of alcohol
While the fat-eating and T-total Mr Trump, 20 years Boris’ senior, sailed thro Covid scarcely missing a beat.
While The Orange Man jibe backfired – having got his colouring (and his Vitamin D) from visiting Florida every other weekend

Green is the colour of Jealousy

There are a lot of lessons to be learned there but, folks caught up in a stampede of Good Intentions, Political Correctness and Self Importance, simply haven’t got the time to listen.
Apart from finding time to listen to fake, fawning and self-declared experts whose only authorities are other fake experts and computers.
And they’re all so self-important they don’t realise that both those things are only mirrors for the terminally vain

The clear and near term outcome if they had all their policies enacted would be a world where every tree or shrub becomes fuel, every scrap of protein food and every other person a competitor for survival. They would stoke the return of perpetual international and intranational conflict, massive decimation of the natural environment, and eventual total collapse of modern society and the human population on Earth. The people who sell this crap think Armageddon is a frat party for the elite progressives and that they are on the guest list.

But if all that happens, Andy Pattullo, won’t the “elites” find themselves with no food in the pantry/fridge, no clean water (because the water pumping stations have shut down, due to no workers to monitor them), no electric power (because the windmills, etc., have crashed and burned) and no one doing their laundry for them?

I sure as hell ain’t gonna cook for them or do their laundry or fire up the furnace. They’ll have to figure that s – – t out for themselves. I would like to see that, wouldn’t you?

If anyone brings civilization to an end and gets no benefit from it, that will be them. ONce their fridges and freezer are emptied and not replenished, and there’s no grain to make bread or other pastry stuff, or grapes on the vines to make wine – all that twaddle – they’ll slowly disappear from the world and the rest of us can just get on with our lives. And for the record, I view them all as a bunch of “karens” who think the rest of us owe them a living, which is the complete opposite reality.

The film Mad Max wasn’t meant to be an instruction manual.

A while back there was that item that the Third World uses about as much kerosene a year as the US uses jet fuel. No doubt “fossil free” will go over a treat there.

And no wonder you can still buy a Tilley light

Since they don’t count you as vaccinated until you’ve had the required # of boosters. Which they keep changing. Check the information from the UK 75-80% of the people in the hospital have all the shots. The CDC has lied from the start about C-19. The use of the “unmentioned” drugs would have saved more the the so called vaccines from the start.. See India’s use of them. Now it is the vaccines that’s killing people.
