WUWT: “100s of Millions of People will Die” – ACF Climate Change Warning about Breaching the 1.5C Limit.
h/t Bob in Castlemaine; The Head of the Australian Conservation Foundation Kelly O’Shanassy delivered a solemn warning last Tuesday to a packed audience of journalists, claiming that if we continue to burn coal and breach the 1.5C IPCC climate limit, “100s of millions of people will die”.
Gloves off over climate policy: ACF chief

Kelly O’Shanassy has run out of time to be polite over climate policy.
The Australian Conservation Foundation CEO says recent warnings from scientists and two decades of climate inaction mean the gloves are off.
“If we continue to burn coal and gas for decades to come, we will kill the 1.5 degree target, we will not have a habitable planet and hundreds of millions of people will die,” she told the National Press Club in Canberra on Tuesday.
“When people are defending burning coal and gas, then that’s what they’re really talking about – those hundreds of millions of people whose lives will be at risk.”
I’ll go first @ 98.7 degrees!
Goodbye! I loved you all!
Why only hundreds of millions of people will die and not billions?
Who exactly are tbe hundreds of millions?? Maybe it will be the ones we want to get rid of anyway.
“When the CO2 goes high… we kick ’em.”
People die everyday, at this point, what difference does it make.
HEY O’SHANASSY! Get in line…behind the
hundreds of millions of others who were screaming that
hundreds of millions were going to die because of
hundreds of millions of reas…err…excuses
for the last couple of decades.
I thought that’s what the Malthusians wanted???
Yeah, over what period of time does the las believe this “hundred(s) of millions will perish? How many of these will succumb to cold, automobile collisions, medical snafus, annoyed spouses, suicide, narcotic abuse, infections, etc.? I am sure that as regular humans, we must all die at some point. This is one of the reasons that I become very weary reading such tripe.

The world would be a much better place for the other creatures living on it, if the human parasites (mainly lefties) were thinned out anyway…our brief time here is just part of the evolving cycle.
Ho-hum. Throw another shrimp on the barbie, would ya mate?
I’m willing to bet a paycheck swap that this Libtard idiot never heard of the Medieval Warm Period, when the climate was approximately 3 degrees Celsius warmer, and Europeans were able to grow two crops a year. (and there was no man made industry to add copious quantities of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere)
Or he knows about it, but chooses to flush it down the memory hole, because it doesn’t fit his power hungry agenda.
He’s actually bitching about the US, but the US has been reducing its carbon output. If this guy’s really concerned, he needs to put pressure on China, India and other emerging nations (who need the energy so their people don’t, uh, die). But good luck with that.
Millions of people always die – it’s the natural conclusion of life. What happened to all the clamor about overpopulation and ZPG?
I still doubt that weather has ever killed more people than totalitarian governments have.
On average 35,000 people die every day.
That’s 100,000,000 every ~ 7.8 years.
Of course, under a socialist regime, that many would die in about 3 years.
I’ll wager that … say … within 120 years … all 6.5 Billion of us will be dead.
Step up and put your money in my hand – I’ll hold it for ya.
I smell BULLSHIT!
izlamo delenda est …
Antarctica warm, extra land and resources and areas to grow crops: = Bad
Siberia Warm, extra land and resources and areas to grow crops: = Bad
Northern Canada Warm, extra land and resources and areas to grow crops: = Bad
Beach houses of the uppity liberal set under water: = Good
Hundreds of millions of Australians? How many New™ and Improved™ Australians?
You know what? Don’t care. I’m good either way.
I see positive things for liberals if hundreds of millions die. Lowered demand for carbon based fuels…less oil refining and less gasoline used…the world cools down and the polar bears have enough to eat…they should just let it happen….like English mothers used to tell their newlywed daughters about their first night as a bride…”Just lay back and think of England, dear.”

The Aussies should be used to high temperatures…hell, they play golf & tennis when it’s 130 in the shade. The image I have: an Australian cattle farmer, in his old WWII Anzac hat, puffy and pock-marked face, 5’9″, 225lbs, red complexion and sweating buckets, stringing a barbed-wire fence in the red earth of the Outback to contain his Abos, occasionally shooting a huge brown snake or Inland Taipan that gets too close, and always humming “Waltzing Matilda”…
Tim…. “woolies”. It’s “contain his “woolies”, not “contain his Abos”.
Woolies are sheep. Abos are completely different. They’re used on ships riggings. You know, “LASH ME DOWN ANOTHER ABO ON THE PORT SIDE!”
Would hate for you to use the wrong word in social situations.
Aaron Burr…I thought “Abo” was Aussie slang for an aborigine.
