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.
