We have been told for years that malaria will spread because of global warming.

Unfortunately for the alarmists, but fortunately for the rest of us, the reverse is the case.

The Our World in Data recently updated a report, originally published in 2015. According to it, WHO data showed deaths from malaria have fallen by 48% since 2000:

https://ourworldindata.org/malaria

The incidence of malaria has also fallen markedly in most of the countries affected in 2000:

incidence-of-malaria

incidence-of-malaria-1

For instance, in Kenya incidence has dropped from 273 to 166 cases per 1000 of population.

You should also note how malaria seems to have been almost totally eradicated in places like Turkey, and much reduced throughout Asia.

They also include this very telling map. Note the green regions, labelled “formerly malarious”:

This does not suggest to me that malaria is spreading because of a slightly warmer climate.

Finally, take…

Anti-humanism, Environmentalism and the Overpopulation Myth

Control: Communism, Environmentalism and the Overpopulation Myth.       The roots of environmentalism go back to the eighteenth century in the form of the overpopulation myth of Malthusianism, which was all about limiting the human population to prevent a predicted Malthusian Catastrophe, i.e. mass starvation, and for genetic purity, especially among supposedly genetically inferior groups e.g.… Continue reading Anti-humanism, Environmentalism and the Overpopulation Myth

Where Do We Get Most Of Our Energy (Hint: Not Renewables)–Lomborg

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Bjorn Lomborg puts the hype about renewable into perspective:

image

The world is mostly run on fossil fuels (81%). Nuclear makes up 5%, with 14% from renewables. Solar panels and wind turbines contribute 0.8%.

When you hear 14% renewables, you will likely think ‘wow, things are going pretty well with the switch to renewables’. But these renewables are not the ones you hear about. The biggest contributor is humanity’s oldest fuel: wood.

4.91% is known as biomass as we also burn food (ethanol) and energy forest (trees or woody shrubs) in the rich world. This is, for instance, the American forests, cut down and shipped across the Atlantic to be burnt in European power plants to be called green and CO₂ neutral – of course, that is only true when the new woods have grown up in 50-100 years.

4.93% of its use takes place in the poor…

The Truth about AGW aka Climate Change

The truth about Anthropogenic Global Warming aka Climate Change The climate is changing as it always has. The real question is whether manmade Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is causing it, whether it will have the dire consequences predicted and whether we can or should do anything about it. The earth has been warming since the Little… Continue reading The Truth about AGW aka Climate Change

The Lancet Accused Of Sacrificing The Poor On Pollution

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

I have highlighted much of the mendacious nonsense coming out of the Lancet concerning climate change and pollution issues.

Now a hard hitting report by Mikko Paunio, a specialist in public health matters has destroyed both the credibility and integrity of two of the Lancet’s recent papers on pollution.

The GWPF, who commissioned the paper, report:

London, 18 January: A pair of influential reports published by the medical journal, The Lancet, are a “gross distortion” of public health science and threaten to devastate public health in the developing world. That is the warning by eminent epidemiologist Mikko Paunio.
The Lancet Commissions on Pollution and Health have claimed that the third world is suffering appalling health effects from industrial pollution. But as Professor Paunio explains, this is far from the truth:
“Most of the deaths that they say are caused by industrial air pollution are actually caused by…

Solar and Wind are not reliable answers to clean energy

Are solar and wind power the answers to future clean energy needs? If not, why not. Solar and wind power are NOT the answers to clean energy for the future. If environmentalists were serious about clean power, they would support hydroelectric, geothermal and nuclear power. All of which are clean, reliable and use well developed… Continue reading Solar and Wind are not reliable answers to clean energy

Why CO2 is not the cause of climate change

Does Carbon Dioxide cause climate change? a) Carbon dioxide is a minor player in any further warming. It is uniformly distributed in the atmosphere but only absorbs infrared (heat) in a very narrow wavelength range. The CO2 wavelength range is outside the range of most of the solar radiance that penetrates our atmosphere. It falls… Continue reading Why CO2 is not the cause of climate change
