The climate is getting safer! A Limerick

The climate is safer today

no matter what climate freaks say.

For a climate less cold

lets more people grow old.

Protect us from earthquakes, we pray!

When I was a lad in Sweden there was still a saying: “If you make it through February, you go around one more year.” Now, with climate control even in our cars, central heating, Air conditioning, cleaner water, regional protection against floods, tornado and hurricane warnings, the death rate from weather related catastrophes  has been reduced by 98.9% in a hundred years. Not so from non-climate related deaths, such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. The death rates from these events now exceed climate related events.

Here are the charts from Bjorn Blomborg, director of Copenhagen Consensus Center.
