The 'inconvenient truth' the BBC won't tell you, especially during 'climate hysteria month'
Deaths from climate change are not on the rise, despite the misinformation constantly pushed by the BBC. The truth is that, thanks entirely to fossil fuels, deaths from climate change have dropped over 96% in the last century alone.
Over the past hundred years, annual climate-related deaths have declined by 96%. In the 1920s, the death count from climate-related disasters was 485,000 on average every year. In the last full decade, 2010-2019, the average was 18,357 dead per year or 96% lower. In the first year of the new decade, 2020, the preliminary number of dead was even lower at 8,086 — 98% lower than the 1920s average.
But wait, the facts are even more exciting: because the world’s population quadrupled over the same time, the climate-related *death risk* has dropped even more sharply.
The death risk is the probability of you dying in any one year. In the 1920s, it was 243 of a million people. Each year, out of a million people, 243 would die from climate-related disasters. In the 2010s, the risk was just 2.5 — a drop of 99%. 240.5 people would not die each year because of lower climate death risk. In 2020, the preliminary number is 1 — 99.6% lower.
It's time we knew the FACTS.
