Calls to add ‘climate change’ to death certificates

Written by Marc Morano

Professors in academia are touting a new study that is being used to call for “climate change” to be added as a cause of death on death certificates. “Climate change is a killer, but we don’t acknowledge it on death certificates,” co-author Dr. Arnagretta Hunter, from The Australian National University (ANU) Medical School, said. The study was published May 20, 2020 in The Lancet Planetary Health.

Given the focus on COVID-19 infection rates and death tolls, it appears the climate activists in academia may want in on the scary and emotional death toll counts in order to draw attention back to their climate cause.

Hunter explained:

“There is second component on a death certificate which allows for pre-existing conditions and other factors. “If you have an asthma attack and die during heavy smoke exposure from bushfires, the death certificate should include that information.”

“We can make a diagnosis of disease like coronavirus, but we are less literate in environmental determinants like hot weather or bushfire smoke.” …  “Climate change is the single greatest health threat that we face globally even after we recover from coronavirus,” Dr. Hunter said.

The study claims:

“Death certification needs to be modernized, indirect causes should be reported, with all death certification prompting for external factors contributing to death, and these death data must be coupled with large-scale environmental datasets so that impact assessments can be done.”

Statistician Dr. Matt Briggs reacted this way:

“They discovered a way to boost fear and keep control!” Briggs added, “Daily body counts blasted from the evil media, ‘Over 100 people died from climate change today, raising questions about … blah blah…’”

They discovered a way to boost fear and keep control! Simple, too. Just add “climate change” to death certificates. https://www.climatedepot.com

But the climate skeptic blog Tallbloke was not receptive to claims that “climate change” should be added to death certificates. “Climate alarmists yet again strain credulity to the limit, no doubt hoping to stir up guilt in the populace about energy use,” the blog noted.

A comment on the Tallbloke blog also ridiculed the study’s claims, noting: “Australia must have a lot of health threats if the ‘single greatest’ one accounts for 2% of the mortality rate.”

Climate fueled Cannibalism?

If “climate change” becomes a cause of death listed on birth certificates, it could result in some interesting reading. Many climate activists have claimed that “global warming” will lead to cannibalism. See:Warnings of climate cannibalism are nothing new: Ted Turner in 2008 warned that AGW survivors ‘will be cannibals’ & Paul Ehrlich warned in 2014 that ‘climate change’ will force humans to ‘eat bodies of dead’

Recent scientific research has countered the claims of a climate change and health threat.

Heat-related deaths have been “substantially underreported” on Australia’s national records, according to experts from The Australian National University (ANU).

Researchers say the amount of deaths attributed to excessive natural heat is at least 50 times more than recorded on death certificates.

Published in The Lancet Planetary Health, figures show over the past 11 years 340 deaths in Australia were recorded as being due to excessive heat but statistical analysis found 36,765 deaths could have been attributed to heat.

“Climate change is a killer, but we don’t acknowledge it on death certificates,” co-author Dr Arnagretta Hunter, from the ANU Medical School, said.

“There is second component on a death certificate which allows for pre-existing conditions and other factors.

    FFS… I suddenly feel ashamed to call myself an Australian when sh^t like this comes from the pens of our supposed intellectual elite.
    It will not be too long before we suddenly lose the ability to delineate between Primary and Secondary causes.

    I think that the ANU lost his credibility quite awhile ago I think that the hockey stick graph fraudster Michael Mann is located there. Therefore expect a lot more rubbish to come out of this university.iBut the good news is that with our robust evidence of the same type of pseudoscience the oxymoronic climate change scam and the are greatly overestimated COVID-19 scam, we have a chance to link them both together and bring them down at the same time. It’s time to send them to jail.

    See, this is what happen when you spend your lives upside down, the blood pools in your heads.

    How about if they find out if the dearly departed were Liberals, then the cause of death could be terminal stupidity.

    April 8, 2020 COVID-19 Coronavirus “Fake” Pandemic: Timeline and Analysis Timeline from September 2019 – April 2020

    There were 150 confirmed cases outside China, when the decision was taken. 6 in the United States, 3 in Canada, 2 in the UK, etc. 150 confirmed cases over a population of 6.4 billion (World population of 7.8 billion minus China’s 1-4 billion). What was the risk of being infected? Virtually zero.
