Global warming already kills 300,000 per year

The Global Humanitarian Forum reports global warming (which is supposed to be a hoax) kills about 300,000 people per year. (New Scientist)

"The majority of deaths are attributed to gradual environmental degradation such as crop failure leading to malnutrition, and water problems such as flooding and draughts."

Strap on your seat belts. The slaughter is expected to reach 500,000 per year by 2030 according to the Global Humanitarian Forum's report.

In addition to crop failure and water problems, global warming is also expanding the range of disease-carrying pests and intensifying deadly heat waves. (

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
