Crocodile Tears from FoE Spokesman re: Winter Deaths

The ONS have published the official figures for ‘excess’ deaths for the last winter. There seems to have been a slight drop compared to the previous winter, despite the exceptionally cold weather. The suggestion is that the absence of a ‘flu epidemic helped keep the figures low.

And then we have this from Dave Timms of Friends of the Earth: “Cold homes cost lives and cause climate change. It is a national disgrace that millions of people live in properties lacking basic insulation – every winter households have to choose between heating and eating.”

He hasn’t thought this through, has he? Perhaps the reason these households have to choose between heating and eating is because their energy bills have been inflated by loadings for feed-in tariffs, carbon taxes, etc. All because of the myth of AGW promoted by his own organisation.

Get a grip, mate.
