The silent holocaust of 1million climate victims in the UK

On 23rd June 1988, James Hansen went before the Senate having allegedly** “went in the night before and opened all the windows, … So that the air conditioning wasn’t working inside the room [and] it was really hot.” Hansen then stated falsely that he was 99% certain that the recent temperature rise was caused by humans – a figure so utterly wrong it is even rejected by the IPCC.
In the 27 winters that have followed, according to research by J D Healy “Excess winter mortality in Europe: a cross country analysis identifying key risk factors” (J Epidemiol Community Health 2003;57:784–789):

England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland—both collectively (as the UK) and separately—all share very high seasonality coefficients. The highest level is found in England (19%, 31 000 excess deaths), followed by Wales (17%, 1800 deaths), Northern Ireland (also 17%, 800 deaths), and Scotland (16%, 3100 deaths). Overall, the UK exhibits an average seasonality rate of 18%, which represents about 37 000 annual excess winter deaths. (Online: Excess winter mortality in Europe)

From this we can estimate the total number of deaths in the UK during those 27 winters since this scam started as

37,000 x 27 years = 999,000

That is as near to 1million excess winter deaths. If that doesn’t count as a Holocaust what does?

**This allegation originally came from Timothy Worth:

And did you also alter the temperature in the hearing room that day?

… What we did it was went in the night before and opened all the windows, I will admit, right? So that the air conditioning wasn’t working inside the room and so when the, when the hearing occurred there was not only bliss, which is television cameras in double figures, but it was really hot. …  So Hansen’s giving this testimony, you’ve got these television cameras back there heating up the room, and the air conditioning in the room didn’t appear to work. So it was sort of a perfect collection of events that happened that day, with the wonderful Jim Hansen, who was wiping his brow at the witness table and giving this remarkable testimony.

He now claims he lied about this deception. This admission of his dishonesty, is covered by Breitbart in a suitable disdainful way.

    The UK’s ‘Excess Winter Deaths’ cannot & must not be ALL laid at the door of climate (changing or not)
    Winter deaths occur for many reasons. Above-average numbers of deaths occur in hospitals, yet ward temperatures are maintained far-higher than nearly all house room temperatures.
    The figures show the highest level is found in England (19%), and Scotland has proportionately fewer (16%). Yet Scotland has a colder climate than England, consequently requiring about +10% more heat pa. If winter deaths were proportional to temperature, Scotland’s %figure should be higher than England’s.
    Then again, how can there be “1million climate victims in the UK” when global temperatures have hardly changed?

    • Scottish-Sceptic says:

      The UK’s climate is seasonal and that has caused 1million deaths in the time academics have been obsessed with a fraction of a degree warming that is undoubtedly mainly natural in origin.
      We could and should have done more about winter deaths. Not all can be prevented, but certainly if we didn’t waste billions each year on these birdmincers we would have money available to reduce the number of deaths.
      But the most appalling thing is that because the elderly need more heating and have lower disposable income, they are hit far harder by this climate scam. As such it is disproportionately hard on the poor and elderly – a group our politicians really don’t care about because they largely don’t change their votes and/or aren’t aware of how their energy bills are directly related to this birdmincer scam.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your final two paras.
    And, the latter part of para 1.
    It’s also crazy the Public Health England spends a fortune publishing a ‘Heatwave Plan’ but no ‘Cold Weather Plan’, when most seasonal deaths occur in winter.
    They actually recommend ‘light coloured’ buildings (to better reflect solar heat gain), when the overriding need is dark coloured buildings to better absorb the meagre winter solar gain.

      I was involved in renewables early on. I could see simple ways to save energy and save people money, make homes warmer etc. Instead evil wind lobbyists turned this into a reverse Robin hood tax taking from the poor with no benefit to them and giving it to the rich.
      It is absolutely appalling that our politicians not only went along with these wind scamsters but worse that they actively attacked people like me who tried to warn them what they were doing.
