According to the Global Humanitarian Forum.
Dr Roger Pielke calls the report a ‘methodological embarrassment,’ and notes that the report itself says ‘there is not yet any widely accepted global estimate of the share of weather related disasters that are attributable to climate change.’
If no one knows how many weather disasters are due to global warming, what basis exists for making an estimate of deaths due to warming? Well, none.
And since the world isn’t getting any warmer, probably the best estimate of climate change disaster related deaths is zero.
Deaths amongst the world’s poor are more likely to be caused by pointless attempts to mitigate climate change, such as the conversion of food crops into bio-fuel.
