So has anyone balanced these mythical deaths with actual real ones last winter?
As the consultation on the government’s Green Deal energy efficiency scheme is scheduled to be published, the latest official figures indicate that excess winter deaths for 2010/11 reached 25,700.http://www.energyefficiencynews.com/uk/i/4662/
The figure from the Office for National Statistics is largely unchanged from last year but fuel poverty charity National Energy Action (NEA) says the cold spell in December precipitated a 38% increase in deaths across England and Wales.
If they want to do complete studies, then reduced deaths from all these warmer wetter winters should be brought into the cost/benefit analysis,one would hope.In this case it would appear the net effect of climate change will be to save lives in the UK.
Loved this bit....
However, authors admit to uncertainties within their computer models, writing: ‘We do not know how fast greenhouse gas emissions will rise, how great the cooling effects are of other pollutants or how quickly ice caps may melt.’
After how many years modelling?This just about sums up what the AGW crowd have achieved to date,the square root of nothing.
