THE GREAT KITTEN AND PUPPY EXTINCTION | Daily Telegraph Tim Blair Blog

Harvard warmist Naomi Oreskes predicts the deaths of all Australians due to climate change – and even worse, as Tony Thomas observes:

She prophesises the climate deaths of puppies and kittens. One reader, she says, “started crying when the pets die, so I didn’t mean to upset people too much … I was just trying to come up with something that I thought people wouldn’t forget about, and I thought, well, Americans spend billions of dollars every year taking care of their pets, and I thought if people’s dogs started dying, maybe then they would sit up and take notice.”

I looked up that bit in the book, and found the Great Kitten & Puppy Extinction occurs in 2023, along with the incidental deaths of 500,000 people and $US500b financial damage. Oreskes writes…

I will bet this moronic bint one million dollars that no kitten and puppy extinction occurs in 2023 (a bit more than eight years from now,” nor will there be 500,000 “incidental deaths” attributed to global warming, or half a trillion in financial damage.

How about it, bint?

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Bill, I’ll bet you’re wrong about 500,000 incidental deaths attributed to climate change.

    viz: If there’s a heat wave in France and a few thousand people die because they didn’t have air conditioning or there’s a power failure, that’ll be attributed to climate change. If the death rate per thousand in equatorial regions increases for any reason, that’ll be attributed to climate change. If there’s a hurricane and a few hundred die, guess what. Hell, if there’s an earthquake which kills one person or a hundred thousand people, they’ll all be incidental deaths due to climate change. And then, if the numbers aren’t quite high enough to grab headlines, all you have to do is massage the data a bit — in the finest tradition of global warming science for the past twenty years — and badda-boom, you’re there.

    • ” If there’s a heat wave in France and a few thousand people die because they didn’t have air conditioning or there’s a power failure, that’ll be attributed to climate change.”

      That’ll be new, considering it’s happened frequently enough before and up til now nobody’s been calling it that. The last time I remember it happening, when, what, like 10,000 people or so died, it was “grandma got left behind in the apartment with no AC while the rest of the family went on vacation to the Mediterranean.”

      • That’s exactly what I was thinking of, Rick, but what will be new will be the push to identify incidental deaths caused by the encroaching glaciers the dreadful heat waves of climate change.

        By the way, if I recall correctly (not a safe bet, to be honest), all of the examples I mentioned have been blamed on global warming climate change, though sometimes not until years after the event.
