But, that hasn’t been going well either thanks to faulty data and outrageous propaganda being peddled instead of actual facts. Now, we’ve got a new angle to push climate change alarmism. It’s causing car crashes and killing people!
"Global warming was responsible for thousands of road deaths in 2015, according to a new study, contradicting many public safety experts who blame increased cell phone use for the spike in traffic fatalities.
“As temperatures continue to increase from heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere, road deaths will likely increase more than expected unless there are major mitigating countermeasures,” retired Yale University epidemiologist Leon Robertson said in a statement."
"Traffic deaths rose by 2,348, or 7.2 percent, in 2015 to 35,200, according to Transportation Department data. Robertson said rising temperatures and increased rainfall had people driving more miles than they would have otherwise, leading to more deaths......" - The Daily CallerWhaaat????
I'm not really sure how they come to equate Heat+Rain = more people driving more. Seeing there are an ever increasing number of autos on the road every year, you would expect more traffic deaths anyway. Seem to me they missed some simple logic here: the more you cross the street, the better chance of getting run over. DUH!
But when you have to prey on people’s emotions and make them unreasonably afraid to win your argument, then your argument probably isn’t a good one in the first place. There’s no way to definitively prove this Heat+Rain=You're Gonna Die in a terrible fiery car crash on a rainy highway connection. But, that won’t stop them from pushing an agenda. There's rarely definitively proof of anything the left says.
