Why Global Warming may be good for us

I couldn’t believe this piece of news when I read it – Global Warming?  Good for us???   There’s me trying to do my bit to save the planet, and then a government department goes and writes a report saying that it’s not all that bad.

Any why?  Because warmer winters are less of a threat to us, ie. less people die.  It even considers that the increases in the summer temperatures (did I miss something last year?) are not so serious because less people suffer from things such as skin cancer than those that suffer in colder winters.

Am I the only person that thinks that this is the wrong way to tackle the problem?  We should be trying to find ways to stop the Global Warming, not trying to find arguments for keeping it.

  1. As the Global Warming IS NOT MAN – MADE, there is nothing that WE can do against it. By the way: January ´08 was the coldest month (world wide average, source: NASA) since 1995!

    We found an interesting article about the problems with Ethanol on ConsumerReports.org:


    “But there are some problems with increasing ethanol blends. Ethanol contains less energy than gasoline, so increasing the amount of ethanol in gasoline will likely result in lower fuel economy. Increasing standard fuel blends from zero to 10 percent ethanol, as is happening today, has little or no impact on fuel economy. In tests, the differences occur within the margin of error, about 0.5 percent. Further increasing ethanol levels to 20 percent reduces fuel economy between 1 and 3 percent, according to testing by the DOE and General Motors. Evaluations are underway to determine if E20 will burn effectively in today’s engines without impacting reliability and longevity, and also assessing potential impact on fuel economy.”
