It’s either sad or funny the lengths the global warming husters will go to… I can’t decide which this is. This report from the Herald Sun is so bad I had to check the URL and make sure I was not at a satire site. Scott Ott couldn’t have done this any better. Only they expect us to believe this…
Watch the bolding it really gets funny…
GLOBAL warming will take a toll on children’s health, according to a new report showing hospital admissions for fever soar as days get hotter.
The new study found that temperature rises had a significant impact on the number of pre-schoolers presenting to emergency departments for fever and gastroenteritis.
The two-year study at a major children’s hospital showed that for every five-degree rise in temperature two more children under six years old were admitted with fever to that hospital.
OK… Let go thru it again, this time with our brains engaged.
A SINGLE STUDY lasting only TWO YEARS limited to a SINGLE HOSPITAL has shown that TWO EXTRA children will be admitted with the rise of temperature. AND the study was limited to children 3-5 years old so they had to cherry pick the data to get these results. AND (as if we needed more) it was only limited to 2 reasons for admission, fever and gastroenteritis. Overall admissions where not cited.
So they base the whole story on what??? 4 Children being admitted to a single hospital in over 2 years? That the “admissions soaring” and the “significant impact” quoted above?
BUT WAIT… The story continues…
The University of Sydney research is the first to make a solid link between climate changes and childhood illness.
I spit out my milk when I read that. That’s when I checked to see if this story was for real.
A single 2 year study at a single hospital using cherry picked data shows an increase in admission probably less than one SD from the norm and they call it a “solid link between climate changes and childhood illness.”
Its comedy and tragedy all rolled up in one.
Comedy because these people say something so preposterous and expect the public to believe them and tragic because so many do.
This is what passes for news today….
BUT let’s play their silly little game. When is flu season? When do children get flu shots to prevent them from influenza, phenomena and death? That would be when it gets cold.
If there really is such a thing a global warming, children won’t get as sick as they do during the winter. Global warming will save children’s lives if only we give it the chance.
