    Over 4.5 Billion people could die from Global Warming-related causes by 2012

    The Canadian National Newspaper: Over 4.5 Billion people could die from Global Warming-related causes by 2012


    Four and a half billion of us apparently didn't get the memo. Anyone who takes these people seriously is as crazy as they are.

    No, no, they're right...as long as you classify every single cause of death as being related to global warming.

    It's easier than thinking, I suppose.

    If you look at the link it appears the article is from 2007. it isnt in the body of the article, but the archive location of the hypertext.

    The web page probably just puts todays date at the top.

    So who is John Stokes, and why should I care he wrote a dumb article?

    On the stupidity scale, I'd put SSDD as similar in stupidity to John Stokes, given the stupidity of this particular idiot cherry pick.

    This is why no one takes the crazy denialists seriously, because they constantly pull retarded shit like this. People with functional logic circuits simply don't get sucked into the denialist cult.

    You all are missing the point of the story. They must have invented a Time Machine so they could go back to 2012 witness all of the people die horrible deaths from AGW.

    And what scientific journal was this published in? Same kind of shit as the '70's articles about an immanent ice age. Done by journalists who have no idea of science above the third grade level. Kind of like you.

    Your inability to read is showing again. The author who provided the background research for that article is highly respected among you warmists. In fact, he arguably wrote the first artcile on global warming back in the 1980's. I am sure that if presented with a number of his articles, you would agree with most and in fact, probably agreed with this one when written back in 2007. You guys are still angsting over methane in the arctic as the result of exactly this sort of scaremongering.

    I notice that no one is questioning that the methane loop exists, and is a massive threat to life on this planet.

    Much better to argue about what some idiot blogger wrote than actually deal with the science, I guess.

    We have already examined what you call the shit of the 70's and you got your ass handed to you since it turned out that science was solidly behind the ice age scare of the 70's. For example:

    The "science" behind this claim came from NCAR:

    http://denisdutton.com/newsweek_coolingworld.pdf

    Then there was this from the National Academy of Sciences

    http://www.sciencenews.org/view/download/id/37739/name/CHILLING_POSSIBILITIES

    This article correctly notes that NCAR, CRU, NAS, NASA and the CIA were onboard with the ice age scare.

    The Windsor Star - Google News Archive Search

    And one shouldn't forget the CIA report on the problems the coming ice age was going to cause in the realm of national security. Where do you think they got their information if not from climatologists?

    http://www.climatemonitor.it/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/1974.pdf

    This newspaper article clearly identifies NASA as the source of it's information

    U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming

    This in Time referencening information from Science Magazine...you know who publishes that mag don't you?

    Science: Another Ice Age? - TIME

    This one references the National Academy and NCAR:

    http://www.wmconnolley.org.uk/sci/iceage/ny-times-1975-05-21.pdf

    The fact is rocks that there was an ice age scare in the 70's. Maybe you aren't as old as you claim and simply weren't around or perhaps your memory has failed...or maybe you are just a denier. Maybe you don't remember that scientific articles weren't available to the average citizen back then and the papers reported on them.

    The scare happened, it didn't come to pass and now deniers and revisionists are trying to pretend that it is something made up by skeptics.
