The forecast for 2080: heatwaves, 11,000 deaths – and dengue fever - Health News - Health & Families - The Independent

Climate change may increase the number of heat-related deaths in the UK by 540 per cent, health experts predict.

By 2080 almost 11,000 people could die every year as a result of heatwaves, up from 2,000 at present, as extreme weather becomes more common, according to the Health Protection Agency (HPA).

Rising temperatures could also mean that British people contract exotic illnesses at home as mosquitos carrying tropical diseases, such as dengue fever and chikungunya, migrate to the UK.

People with hay fever will have a protracted period of suffering each year as the warmer climate could mean the pollen season starts earlier and finishes later....

So in the next 70 odd years there will be no improvements in medicine, pest prevention and air conditioning? Just like there hasn't been since 1940..

Yet no one seems to count the old folks being turned into popsicles in Winter because they can't afford the inflated energy bills. Are they climate change casualties as well?

Well, if the ecofascists get their way nobody will have any electricity to do any research anyway, so probably there won't be any technical advances. This is probably part of their plan.
