Is it now natural climate change we are fighting against?

Climate change could kill 250,000 children next year, and the figure could rise to more than 400,000 by 2030, according to Save the Children. Climate change is the biggest global health threat to children in the 21st century as droughts and floods force families to leave their homes and children to drop out of school. Starvation and economic collapse caused by natural disasters could even lead to more child trafficking and child labour.
David Mepham, Save the Children’s Director of Policy, called on world leaders to agree a tough deal on tacking climate change at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December.

I seem to note a shift in the exhortations to do something about Climate Change. They are dropping the "Man Made" label - here is is described as "natural".
Doing something to help the victims of natural disasters and helping them prepare against them is a fine and admirable thing. Sensible predictions of how likely and where these disaster will be will help. Using such tragedies to demand the destruction of western civilization in an orgy of guilt isn't.

Doesn't sound like much of a change to me. The arseholes still want to save people by destroying the global economy. The cure will kill far more than the supposed problem ever will. Natural disasters kill more in undeveloped countries than in developed ones, economic growth lifts people out of poverty and allows for adaptation to any climate change.

As soon as you find credible scientific evidence of the natural process that is causing the warming - and why increasing CO2 by 30% would not warm the planet - let us know. There's a Nobel Prize and massive fame and wealth for the person who manages that.

P.S. 1 - 3% GDP is hardly going to lead to "the destruction of western civilization". Sounds like you're getting your 'science' and economics information from Denier blogs and your own, fevered imagination. Don't.

P.P.S. "Save the Children join Oxfam, World Vision and all other charities that advocate on AGW, on my do not donate to list." Yeah, because I'll bet you were such a big donater before, weren't you?
