AGW and Health: 2 Journals, 18 Professional Medical Organizations…And Still They Can Be Wrong

More almost-pure nonsense about AGW and health, this time even bigger than last time, from two famous medical journals and 18 professional medical organizations.

Anybody could write them down by using a little catastrophical imagination (poverty, death, plagues, famines, the works). They should be titled “No University degree required”.

I demonstrated that a few months ago. And I was only able to analyze the bits I am familiar with…who knows how many more articles have been left out.

  • There is however another sign that indicates there is something peculiar about all these reports.  They are supposed to be written by doctors for doctors, yet they don’t confine themselves to areas that require a doctor’s expertise. And so they end up in unsupported claims.

For example there are no “encroaching deserts in Africa” (the opposite might be happening…yet again, some say, because of global warming). And the forays into rainfall patterns and climate modelling in the earlier report can at best make one cringe.

Add to that some blatant untruths (there are no “clear facts…identified in relation to climate change;and especially so about health issues).

The result can only be a full rejection of the latest claims. That’s why, whatever the intentions (and professional competence) of those writing them, they are almost-pure nonsense.

    The Lancet and BMJ published a joint editorial on the subject, which the Guardian also published. It was such a load of sixth form platitudes that I wrote a couple of light hearted comments, which stayed up for 24 hours but which have now been removed (censored). Here they are:

    “Wide consensus … tipping point … catastrophic and irreversible … a global health catastrophe … winning hearts and minds” It’s all there. You couldn’t make it up, and why should you bother? since it’s all been cut and pasted from a comment which GreenAngelChloe will be making to this article very soon.

    You can only hope the men in white coats will be coming for the authors (oh, they ARE the men in white coats). The doctors have taken over the asylum.

    I thought the latter was very funny, and therefore not trolling. Am I wrong?

    Yes, sometimes we just can’t rely only on medical journals or opinions of the professional organizations
