One less thing to worry about…

Climate Realism (1/2/21) blog: “Despite the near constant caterwauling from climate alarmists that we are in a ‘climate emergency’, real-world data, released at the end of 2020 shows that climate related deaths are now approaching zero. The data spans 100 years of ‘global warming’ back to 1920 and shows ‘climate related’ deaths are now approaching zero. Below is an update of the graph in the 2020 peer-reviewed article by Bjørn Lomborg: Welfare in the 21st century: Increasing development, reducing inequality, the impact of climate change, and the cost of climate policies…This is clearly the opposite of what climate alarmists have been screaming about, but that is because we’re been exposed to a constant stream of “disaster TV” on cable news and Internet news outlets telling us daily about yet another new disaster, which invariably gets blamed on ‘climate change’. There’s an important distinction that must be made: increased reports does not equal increased death risk. While the number of reported events is increasing, that is mainly due to increased reporting. Called ‘the CNN effect’, we now have 24 hour news, Internet, and people able to make reports of weather disasters from their cellphones, i.e. storm-chasers.”

 
 

Alaska’s Administration, Legislature, Businesses & Citizens should be concerned about a faux-virtue trend that Banks are already using against Alaska.  Why is this a concern?  Because the 49th State depends upon lawful resource development.  –dh

“It should go without saying, that banks should not discriminate against potential creditworthy clients who are operating in legal industries. Yet, thanks in part to the growth in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing and management guidelines, there is a growing tendency for this discrimination to occur.”
