No, I’m not kidding. Demonstrating a sense of timing nearly as perverse as their interpretation of scientific data, a newly formed group of warmists seeks to reduce the climactic impact of the average patient:

The Climate and Health Council, a collaboration of worldwide health organisations including the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal Society of Medicine, believes there is a direct link between climate change and better health.

So, what should be done?

Their controversial plan would see GPs and nurses give out advice to their patients on how to lower their carbon footprint. The Council believes that climate change ‘threatens to radically undermine the health of all peoples.’

One would think that, in light of recent revelations concerning statistical skulduggery by their fellow warmists, these folks would refrain from giving advice on another hotly debated public policy issue.

But I guess if they were rational, they wouldn’t be warm-mongers. These characters apparently agree with Robert Gibbs that the science is settled on climate change, even if it rests on tainted data.

    When a plague of malarial mosquitos invades the southern US you’ll bear in mind that there are no health effects of global warming because, er, global warming doesn’t exist.

    Marc, your position reflects the general ignorance of all those who have been sucked in by AGW theory and propaganda.
    The fact is that malaria has nothing to do with Global Warming.
    This is an historic fact, since malaria has previously existed, and in fact was endemic to places like Canada and Russia before it was wiped out by the prodigious use of pesticides like DDT.
    This really illustrates how ignorant and easily manipulated you kids are.

    Charles is absolutely correct. In fact, every insect-born disease I’ve seen listed so far as a ‘harbringer of global warming’ has absolutely nothing to do with temperature. They are simply not a problem in the more modern parts of the world because we have learned how to control the insects and treat the diseases they spread. Things we learned back when science was used to learn stuff, and not to advance political agendas.

    Your own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says:

    ‘The incidence of vector-borne and zoonotic diseases (VBZD) is difficult to predict and model. Climate is one of many variables known to affect the rates of these infectious diseases. Climate change may result in changing distribution of VBZD prevalent in the U.S. This could cause formerly-prevalent diseases such as malaria and dengue fever to re-emerge, or facilitate the introduction and spread of new disease agents, such as West Nile virus.’
