Not dying from global warming but high taxes
So, to paraphrase Sarah Palin, "How is that global warming, renewable fuels/highly taxed dirty fuels thing working out for you?" Over in increasingly not so merry England, Fraser Nelson, writing in that country's Telegraph gives us a shuddering preview of what's happening there...and what is in store for us.
It's the cold, not global warming, that we should be worried about
No one seems upset that in modern Britain, old people are freezing to death as hidden taxes make fuel more expensive
On the bright side, so to speak, in England there will be an estimated 30,000 extra deaths " 'excess winter mortality'--that is, the number of people dying of cold-related illnesses" in British officialese who probably would have continued to live had they had enough fuel to keep warm. "The bright side?" you ask. That's 30,000 frail, elderly people the increasingly broke British socialized health service won't have to care for.
