Freezing to death in the name of global warming


AGE UK, the charity for the elderly, and former Pensions Minister Ros Altmann warn that pensioners risk freezing to death this winter because soaring energy bills will force many to switch off their heating. 

These escalating prices are being caused by the mania for ‘protecting the environment’: it is estimated that ‘decarbonisation’ will cost an unimaginable trillion pounds, and the refusal to allow us to use our own abundant sources of energy makes us dependent on foreign coal and gas, held hostage to the price increases of Russia and China.

The ‘green’ approach sees ‘behavioural changes’ such as switching off or turning down domestic heating as essential, with little thought given to the effects on those most vulnerable to the cold – and given the obsession of leading ‘environmentalists’ with the idea of people as a ‘plague’ on the earth, both the very young and the very old must pay for this anti-human ideology the ultimate price of their lives. 

‘Saving the pensioners’ must give way to ‘saving the planet’, and it is tragic, if rather ironic, that the most vulnerable among us may end up freezing to death because of the obsession with global warming.
