Does this smack of desperation to you?

Really, this is just incomprehensible:

The Climate and Health Council, a collaboration of worldwide health organisations including the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal Society of Medicine, believes there is a direct link between climate change and better health.

Their controversial plan would see GPs and nurses give out advice to their patients on how to lower their carbon footprint.

The Council believes that climate change “threatens to radically undermine the health of all peoples”.

Firstly, until fucking doctors can reliably demonstrate useful basic diagnostic skills and nurses can stop trying to kill us with egregiously filthy hospitals, they can fuck off trying to tell me ANYTHING.

Secondly, on what possible basis can you argue that my doctor needs to tell me to worry about something that's (possibly) going to happen in 100 year's time? Fuck off, already, I haven't done my Christmas shopping, I've got e-fucking-nough to worry about.

Thirdly, how fucking desperate is this? We've caught caught the pro-AGW "scientists" cheating like absolute motherfuckers, so now they're wheeling out the fucking doctors and nurses?

Fourthly, ALL peoples?

And this is really the point which sets off my bullshit detectors on the whole AGW scam: there will be no benefits to warming. Everybody will be worse off. Instead of not freezing to death in winter (which is much more prevalent than broiling in summer) you will, instead, be killed just as hard by a warmer summer. The increased rain that will fall will only cause floods, there won't be fewer hose-pipe bans or better crops or anything like that.

And what are these fuckers getting so exercised about anyway? It's hundreds of years away, we don't know what the consequences are going to be and we don't even know if it's happening at all. You might as well tax us to help prevent another planet-shaker comet, for fuck's sake!

But I can see we need to keep our eyes on Professor Mike Gill:

"We have the evidence, a good story to tell that dramatically shifts the lens through which climate change is perceived, and we have public trust."

Mike, sweetie: there is no fucking evidence, your story sucks balls and I don't trust the NHS to tell me the fucking time.

What the fuck is it with these jumped-up, overweening, nannying, hectoring, bullying fucking doctors, anyway? Stop fucking sticking your busybody, authoritarian fucking noses into things that don't concern you. Start fucking doing your jobs properly.

Until you do, you can all fuck off and die.


Update: Leggy and Dick are equally unamused.

I'd rather they did actually.

We'd get some technological benefit from it it would stretch technology not stifle it as AGW does.

AGW is coming apart at the seams so this doesn't surprise me at all. Most Doctors are just in it for the money and prestige.

About six years ago, I fractured my arm and when I got to the hospital they tried to link that with smoking for fuck's sake!

Most Doctors are nothing more than textbook students, not interested in finding out new bold ways of treatment but do just enough not to get sacked.

I just feel bad for all those suckered into believing the BS, thanks to NuGov's education system of producing drones who need instructions on the simplest tasks.

No environmental scientist I have EVER met:

1. believes in a simplistic idea of 'global warming'

2. does NOT believe that the trillion tonnes of waste we shit out every year is not leading to climate change.

3. thinks the billions spent on bogus research, fake pressure groups and PR by the oil, gas and tobacco industry are not more influential than the global warming worriers.

I'm starting to worry that you too are sucking on the teat of the oil lobbyists.

Whereas the billions spent spent on bogus research, fake pressure groups and PR by governments using YOUR AND MY tax money is perfectly OK?

Don't be a frickin' idiot all your life, man.

(I wish I were suckling at the teat of big oil, I'd be able to feed my collection of penis extensions if I were.)

More desperation today.

All over the world, zoos keep polar bears in ice free climates but those will be the only ones left unless we all turn off our heating.

It's going to get increasingly ridiculous from here on.

"It's going to get increasingly ridiculous from here on."

I'd say that was a tall order, but there's plenty more where 'doctor baloney' came from, after all...

"there is no fucking evidence, your story sucks balls and I don't trust the NHS to tell me the fucking time."


And, as you say, it does appear desperate, so they bring in another arm of the state to the fray. Surely even socies can see this isn't an ideal situation.

Ta for the link.

I'm a nurse and I feel that health professionals should stick to what their good at, making sick people better. Global warming is fuck all to do with us professionals and by releasing shit like this we just undermine our professional reputation.

If the medical professions just concentrated on what they should be doing then the public might actually have some trust in us.

For my part I believe that the global warming is the biggest con since organised religion

Doctors should advise patients on how to avoid dangerous hospitals & MRSA before getting involved with subjects outside their speciality.

So far since the UEA leak, the story changed from settled science to "science is always in a state of flux" (last weeks Question Time), then there was a report saying that increased CO2 would acidify the oceans, then yesterday I saw a report quoting Paul McCartney as saying some bollocks about how we shouldn't eat meat one day a week to reduce livestock and therefore global CO2.

As you say, the elite doth protest to much methinks.

Not that I'm suprised. I didn't realise there was such a fucking huge business on the futures markets trading carbon credits. Neither did I realise that the carbon markets are actively being backed by the big oil companies.

Go figure, its just another fucking money spinning machine.

Warmer oceans hold LESS CO2.

They cannot even keep their Lies together.
