Junk Study: ‘Climate change is already increasing cancer risk!’
Written by Marc Morano
Here is yet another example of ‘peer-reviewed’ junk science to fool the gullible that ‘climate change’ is the biggest threat ever. The fake scare porn herein focuses on cancer risks if temperatures rise a fraction of a degree. March Morano quotes the American Cancer Society paper as follows:
Climate change is already increasing cancer risk through increased exposure to carcinogens after extreme weather events such as hurricanes and wildfires. In addition to increasing cancer risk, climate change is also impacting cancer survival. Extreme weather events can impede patients’ access to cancer care and the ability of cancer treatment facilities to deliver care. …
Climate change creates conditions favorable to the greater production of and exposure to known carcinogens. Extreme weather events are already increasing the amount of carcinogens in communities. …
“To date, no studies have estimated the carbon footprint of cancer care…The energy expenditure associated with operating cancer treatment facilities and medical devices, as well as the manufacturing, packaging, and shipment of devices and pharmaceuticals, contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions in cancer care…Some cancer treatment facilities have begun to consider their own carbon footprint and started a process to achieve carbon neutrality. However, the proportion of health care institutions reporting environmental sustainability activities lags behind other economic sectors”
Rebuttals to the new study here:
Cancer deaths blamed on ‘climate change’ – Now that “climate change” and cancer are being linked in a study published in the American Cancer Society journal, deaths from cancer could someday be labeled a “climate change” death.
