Green Scare Continues

More scientists making completely unsupportable suppositions and generating bullshit statistics to go with it. From the Daily Globe and Mail.
As global warming heats up temperatures around the United States...will cause a 30 percent jump in nephrolithiasis, or kidney stones, especially in hotter regions of the country, said scientists at the University of Texas.

Only 30%? If I was making this shit up I would have said 50%. That would scare people more.
And, as temperatures increase, so does the risk for dehydration in humans, which can form solid, painful plugs in the bladder and kidneys.

And then this nugget.
Most climate-change experts are not yet aware of the kidney stone connection, but probably would not be surprised.

This whole global warming bullshit machine is looking (and sounding) more and more like a big tent revival healing. "He healed my consumption!!!" "My sight was restored!!!" "I walked for the first time in 50 years!!!"

Dr. Tom sir are a bullshit artist of the first order. Global warming models, as worthless as they are, don't predict 10-15 degree average temperature increases where we live. The risk has always been characterized as weather pattern shifts and polar zone changes...a couple of degrees F. If you are studying people from Detroit that are sent to Iraq...well that's like cancer studies in rats when they are fed their bodyweight in DDT. Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit.
