373 Dead From Global Warming (or maybe more)

N16.7 Trillion Lost To Climate Change | P.M. NEWS Nigeria
At least N16.7 trillion (US$110 billion) was lost to impact of climate change globally in 2010, says Dr. Kenny Tang of the Oxbridge Weather Capital, London, United Kingdom.
According to Tang, the impact of climate change had been so devastating that property worth $110 billion had been destroyed worldwide while several people had died as a result of massive flooding, tsunamis, hurricane, among others.
Tang disclosed that 375 natural disasters occurred worldwide, adding that 300, 000 people were killed in the disaster with 207 million people affected globally.
He lamented that in Haiti, 200,000 people were killed as a result of heat wave which swept the whole land, while 1,985 others were killed in Pakistan and 3,451 killed in China.

Other reports say: Tang said 373 people were killed and about 250 million affected. He said 220,000 died in Haiti.

That heatwave in Haiti that looked like an earthquake, I wish I knew the truth. As an expert on Sustainable Environmental Finance I'm sure Dr Tang does, and where the money should go.

Don't youjust love it when a so-called 'expert' can't get his 'facts' straight? What a pity the Islington Coffee morning set will believe every word and evry mangled 'fact.'

"...massive flooding, tsunamis, hurricane [sic], among others. Tang disclosed* that 375 natural disasters occurred worldwide, adding that 300,000 people were killed in the disaster with 207 million people affected globally..."

Did I miss the bit where he proved any of that had anything whatever to do with global "warming"?

Or did he in fact not prove anything, just say them one after the other quite quickly and hope that his listeners assume cause and effect?

* "Disclosed" - because somehow nobody had noticed any of this until he pointed it out. Not.
