Those coal “death trains” have in fact saved millions of lives this winter, Mr Hansen

By the blogowner, honestclimate, February 16, 2009

Oh dear, another alarmist rant from James Hansen:

The amount of carbon dioxide in the air has already risen to a dangerous level. The pre-industrial carbon dioxide amount was 280 parts per million (ppm). Humans, by burning coal, oil and gas, have increased this to 385 ppm; it continues to grow by about 2 ppm per year.

The trains carrying coal to power plants are death trains. Coal-fired power plants are factories of death.

This from the same man who flies half way across the globe in a carbon emitting aircraft to defend those who vandalise coal power plants. The hypocrisy is astounding.

Dr Hansen, if you believe what you preach I challenge you to stop using electricity, stop driving your car, stop flying etc.

And most importantly thank goodness for coal, for the northern hemisphere is experiencing one of its coldest winters in memory. How many millions of lives would have been lost in this exceptionally cold winter without the heating from coal-generated electricity?
