Is it any wonder that “Global Warming” does not get the due some people think it should? The UN has given us 7 years to end carbon emission growth in order to save the planet.
Is that going to happen? No.
Let’s talk in 7 years.
Disasters are bad enough as is. When you inflate them, you “cry wolf” and pretty soon, no one thinks there really is a disaster.
Stop doing this!
UPDATE: Dominic Nutt from Save the Children has let me know that they did not say the above, that up to 15,000 people have died from the cyclone. Let’s see, believe Dominic or believe the MSM? I think I’ll go with Mr. Dominic and instead change the above to read
In other news, The Telegraph says that “up to 15,000” people died in the cyclone in Bangladesh
when in reality, it’s closer to 3500.
This particular article was updated today and I have no idea how to find the cached verion of the 19th. (Help?) But I suspect Save the Children were misquoted based on past performance by the media.
