The Lancet, once a reputable medical journal, is destroying its credibility. Shameful.
The purveyor of “The best science for better lives” is pushing a political agenda.
“Stop treating it [i.e. AGW…human-caused global warming/climate change] as a worthy opponent. Do not ascribe reasonableness to the other side. It is not reasonable, not true, not even plausible.” ~ Richard Lindzen, Professor Emeritus, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). (31 March 2021.

The report tracks 44 indicators of health impacts that are directly linked to climate change and expose an unabated rise in the health impacts of climate change and a delayed and inconsistent response of countries around the world. Climate change and its drivers are creating ideal conditions for infectious disease transmission, and yet many current COVID-19 recovery plans are not compatible with the Paris Agreement. A fossil-fuel driven recovery – which includes large subsidies for oil, gas and coal and limited financial support for clean energy – could potentially meet narrow and near-term economic targets but may then push the world irrevocably off course and make it impossible to meet the maximum 1·5°C of warming as outlined in the Paris Agreement. The Lancet Countdown report shows that many countries are under-prepared for the health effects of climate change. As the linked Editorial in The Lancet notes, while global greenhouse gas emissions dipped by 6·4% in 2020 they have since rebounded. The imperative is clear for accelerated action putting the health of people and the planet above all else. We hope you find the latest Countdown report to be informative and encourage you to explore the additional resources below. |
Yours sincerely, The Lancet.
