Mortality from AGW warming: A brief analysis

"In a recent FaceBook exchange, the question came up of why I object to the omission from most talk about AGW of the benefits from milder winters. I ended up sketching an approach to the question of whether increased mortality from hotter summers was more or less than decreased mortality from milder winters. It was a longer piece than I usually bother with on FaceBook, which suggested that it would be more appropriate here, so here, with some editing, it is. I begin with a Lancet article that found that, globally, 'cold-related deaths outnumbered heat-related deaths by a factor of nearly 20, overall.' To figure out how summed deaths from heat and cold were changed by AGW so far, or estimate how they will be changed in the future, I need two more pieces of information." (09/26/16)

    how many angels can dance on the head of a pin…

    pope never did figure how to turn that question into a rent-seeking pot of gold…not the case w/ liberalism and “climate change.” This is scientific authority as religious eschatological fundamentalism.

    anthropomorphic rent-seeking boodoggle
