Reference: Climate change hits Asia hard, Bangkok Post, December 12, 2007
The claim that greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels are causing extreme weather events (Climate change hits Asia hard, Bangkok Post, December 12, 2007) has been challenged. An organization called the Civil Society Coalition on Climate Change (http://www.csccc.info/) has published a report showing that the mortality rate from extreme weather events in the period 1990-2006 is almost half of that for the prior 90 years of the 20th century and that this mortality rate is not rising but has been falling steadily since 1920. The global warmists have dismissed this report as a product of scientists who are in the pay of oil companies but have not explained its findings. They have also failed to explain what errors in their climate model might have led them to incorrectly predict extreme Atlantic hurricane seasons for 2006 and 2007. They sound a lot smarter when they stick to their usual 100-year forecasts because you can't prove them wrong. Jesus Christ's many competing Apocalypse peddlers fell out of grace when the world did not end when it was supposed to. Jesus did not set a date for the end and made his forecasts long and indefinite. There is a lot that the global warmists can learn from Jesus.
