Stopping Global Warming Will Save Millions

The Stern report outlines what the Earth's goals are for the future. These include amongst others: Halve extreme poverty and hunger, Reduce under five mortality, Reduce maternal mortality and Reduce aids.

What better way to do this then spend godzillions on the theory of global warming which has not yet been scientifically proven beyond doubt. And that

there could be an additional 165,000 to 250,000 child deaths per year in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa by 2100.

Wow that's huge. I'm not sure where he got his numbers from but here are mine. Well lets consider that when sponsoring a child in Africa, it costs us about a dollar a day to give the child food, education and medicine. Not much hey, $400 a year only. Given that Junk Science claim that global warming has cost at this stage about $256 billion, this equates to clothing, educating and feeding 640 million kids for a year, or 7 million people every year from the age of 1 up to 94.

So would you rather spend godzilions on a possibility of global warming that may or may not be advantageous, or feed, cloth, educate and strip of disease the poor of Africa and Asia?
