Well, there's a publication coming from a Stanford scientist that says the problem is: CO2 can kill you. That explains why the E.P.A. is so anitpathetic to all those states trying to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The E.P.A. is about protecting the ENVIRONMENT, they could give a crap about people, right? And it seem suspiciously like the environment they're protrecting is in the exectuive offices of certain oil and car companies.
The Stanford researcher says there's a direct link, cause and effect, between increased atmospheric carbon dioxide and human mortality rates. Now I agree there's a problem with over-population, but I don't agree with Scrooge that anything taking out twenty thousand people per year around the globe is a good idea. And this research says each degree of Celsius increase in global temps will kill 20,000 people, two degrees increase kills twice as many. The researcher didn't extraplolate his math to what would happen when the seas actually begin to boil. I would predict a brief drop in the price of boiled lobster, and an increase in boiled lobstermen. Mark Jacobson is the author and his article is pending publication. It's listed here.
