Q: What doesn't GW cause that isn't a threat to civilisation?
A: Not a lot, apparently.

I find it quite amazing that so many millions of people have managed to survive the heat near to 0º latitude for so many millennia.
Yet the rumour is being spread that a few degrees of warming spells disaster for those who live at higher and lower latitudes.

They burn food, make corn into fuel, and drive by as the children starve. They are on there way, to save the world. What's a little hunger to alarmists who create evil, hoax science?

Perhaps they should learn how plug in the frig.

"Part of the increase was blamed on increased outdoor activities involving food such as barbecues"

Or perhaps they should learn how to cook.

highest incidence of food poisoning is in Japan, but that is due to them eating a lot of raw fish.
We allve to die from something, so as long as dying includes doing something enjoyable or is the cause of it, I don't see a problem.
The most amusing thing that I can recall, is the number of young men who dream of dying 'on the job,' as if that would be the last thing one thinks about as they take their last gasp of breath?

And in other countries, not crapping in the drinking water would help.
We all do that, whether we know it or not, but the direct problem was solved during the Napoleonic wars, by a Brit, of course.

We didn't have 'frigs' when I was young, only a larder

earning to cook on a barby isn't easy, it takes common sense and some learning about how food is cooked, even in the 21st century.

Man's carbon emissions change the sun. We mitigate the solar fusion furnace with carbon and electromagnetic emissions. If we stop emitting CO2, the sun might nova.
