And They Think Global Warming Is Bad?
I know we "Regulars" here know the score, but this is for any passing through.  S5

Global Warming Is Not Your Enemy


A new study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago reveals that it is the COLD which should concern us, not the heat.

The study’s summary/abstract opens by dutifully laying out the AGW Party line (well how else would it have gotten published in the journal Environmental Research), but then attaches the hard-facts at the end:

“With the number of extreme weather days rising around the globe in recent years due to global warming, it is no surprise that there has been an upward trend in hospital visits and admissions for injuries caused by high heat over the last several years. But cold temperatures are responsible for almost all temperature-related deaths.”

According to the new study, which looked at hospital visits in Illinois between 2011 and 2018: “the crude annual inpatient admission incidence rate was more than four-fold higher for cold injuries compared to heat injuries (10.2 vs 2.4 per 100,000 people),” and, crucially, patients who died because of cold temperatures were responsible for 94% of temperature-related deaths.

The paper, in its desperate attempt to get published, crowbars in the claim that: “With the decrease in the number of cold weather days over the last several decades, we still see more deaths due to cold weather as opposed to hot weather.” However, this assertion isn’t backed up by any facts — in fact, when the researchers looked at inpatient and outpatient heat- and cold-related injuries that required a hospital visit, they identified 23,834 cold-related cases and 24,233 heat-related cases –so roughly 50-50– and among these patients, there were 1,935 cold-related deaths and just 70 heat-related deaths.

We humans have become obsessed with demonizing heat, but this stance makes no sense: history shows us periods of warmth should be embraced for they have brought-about the expansion of every great empire of the past, and have unquestionably assisted in our own modern technical advancements. EVERY great civilization has risen and thrived during times of consistent warmth; it is the times of COLD which have been the catalyst for ancient political turmoils and an eventual societal collapse:
