Europeans Ready to Screw Africa--Again

This really is alarmist nonsense. Just change the language a bit and you hear the old voice of Pravda. Many people will die in Africa but it will be most likely from factors brought on by zero growth European development policies and those who think wealth is generated by general ledgers and lawyers. Non Dick Managers (NDMs) are a far greater danger to the future of Africa than any sort of climate changes real or otherwise. See the propaganda by the nut jobs below. Who would seriously base the bulk of their statistical references on what comes out of the United Nations? This is an organization riddled with intellectual and moral confusion and led by those who in civilized countries would be allowed to aspire no higher than the office of dog catcher.

"LONDON (Reuters) - Disease spread by global warming could kill an extra 185 million people in sub-Saharan Africa by the end of the century and turn millions more into refugees unless rich nations take action now, a report said on Monday.

Christian Aid said rich developed countries had to end their dependence on fossil fuels and set aside large sums of aid to help poorer nations ride out the worst impacts of global warming and switch to energy sources like wind, solar and waves.

"Rich countries must take responsibility for having largely created this problem -- and cut CO2 emissions radically," the non-governmental organization said in a report "The Climate of Poverty: facts, fears and hopes."

"Climate change is taking place and will inevitably continue. Poor people will take the brunt, so we are calling on rich countries to help them adjust as the seas rise, the deserts expand, and floods and hurricanes become more frequent and intense."

Most scientists agree that global warming is due to burning fossil fuels for transport and power, and new calculations suggest that having risen by 0.6 degrees Celsius in the 20th century, global temperatures could surge three degrees by 2100.

Christian Aid said it based its estimate of 185 million deaths due to disease on figures from the

United Nations and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Global warming should allow carriers like mosquitoes to expand their ranges."
