New Finding: Global Warming "Highly Beneficial to Human Health" is predicting a storm system emerging from the Rockies that will coat Plains and Midwest roads with freezing drizzle and traffic-snarling snow. Message: Drive carefully, if at all.

I think this is a great moment to thank Elmer over at Minnesotans for Global Warming for pointing out a new peer-reviewed study that "Climate Change" alarmists will never tell you about: Global warming would actually save lives.

Anybody who has ever spent serious time freezing their buns off or digging their way out of a heavy snowstorm could'a told you that, but . . .

Three UK researchers (N. Christidis, G. C. Donaldson, and P. A. Stott) decided to make it official by scientifically testing a claim made "with very high confidence" by the UN's IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) that "climate change contributes to the global burden of disease and to increased mortality". . . .

After studying UK death and cause-of-death statistics for the period between 1976 and 2005, the researchers found that a warmer summer would cause 1.6 more deaths per million people, but a warmer winter would result in 47 fewer deaths, for a lives-saved to life-lost ratio of 29.4, representing a huge net benefit of the warming.

However, if people made efforts to adapt to the warming trend, less than one (0.7) additional death per million would occur in the summer, but 85 fewer deaths would occur in the winter, for a phenomenal lives-saved to life-lost ratio of 121.4.

What the researchers concluded:
Clearly, the IPCC's "very-high-confidence" conclusion is woefully wrong. Warming is highly beneficial to human health, even without any overt adaptation to it. And when adaptations are made, warming is incredibly beneficial in terms of lengthening human life span.

  1. So, the global warming alarmists found out that warming is beneficial cause it saves lives. This is great news! - which totally debunks their sky is falling mentality about global warming/climate change.

  2. Not only would it save lives but it would increase agriculture in Most of the world. Especially America!
