#GreenImperialism – so much better for poor people to die


There’s an interesting post over at Bishop Hill as Andrew Montford continues to probe the warmist camp and watch their contortions as they justify their positions on why poor people in developing nations should shut up and be grateful. The post is here


I’ve pulled out Barry Woods’ comment as the most telling for the deep ignorance and inhumanity these humans have for the fellow beings they profess to be making a stand for. The cognitive dissonance is staggering [my bold]

Michael asked me – “please explain how to cook with a coal-fired power station. I need to learn.”

I explained, carefully

Bishop Hill ‏@aDissentient ·
@MLiebreich @pilitaclark Presumably you guys are comfortable with the bans on aid for fossil fuel projects in Africa?

Michael Liebreich ‏@MLiebreich
.@aDissentient @pilitaclark It’s generally a ban on coal projects, except in exceptional circumstances. Yes, I’m comfortable with that.

@MLiebreich @pilitaclark Even though people are dying for lack of access to electricity?

.@aDissentient @MLiebreich @pilitaclark so much better for poor people to die from air pollution from coal and diesel, eh? How humane!

@ret_ward @aDissentient @MLiebreich @pilitaclark are you ignorant or dishonest? Coal/oil electric give far less pollution than home …

.@randomxnp @ret_ward @aDissentient @pilitaclark Hilarious. I guess you’ll give these Africans you worry about each a ceramic hob?

Barry Woods ‏@BarryJWoods · 35m35 minutes ago
No.just same access to electricity,that brought millions of Chinese out of poverty.. & you know that @MLiebreich @aDissentient @pilitaclark

Michael Liebreich
‏@MLiebreich @HG54 @RogTallbloke @aDissentient @BarryJWoods @ret_ward please explain how to cook with a coal-fired power station. I need to learn.

Well, I decided at this point to explain very carefully…

[[CM – Progressives my arse. They are just the latest imperialists teaching ‘heathen nations’]]

well I have an electric hob (grid coal or gas) used to have gas – @MLiebreich if you recall I said the same benefits as us (coal and gas)

Barry Woods ‏@BarryJWoods · 13m13 minutes ago
go to your kitchen,do u have a gas, or electric hob(or oven), think about where the energy comes from for it @MLiebreich same for Africa?

Barry Woods ‏@BarryJWoods · 9m9 minutes ago
I know,go 2 your kitchen,look at your hob/oven & think. Why don’t I need kerosene,wood or dung,to use it. @MLiebreich same can work in Africa

Barry Woods ‏@BarryJWoods · 6m6 minutes ago

If you can’t see the problem here, you are the problem.

  1. Key facts

    Around 3 billion people cook and heat their homes using open fires and simple stoves burning biomass (wood, animal dung and crop waste) and coal.
    Over 4 million people die prematurely from illness attributable to the household air pollution from cooking with solid fuels.
    More than 50% of premature deaths due to pneumonia among children under 5 are caused by the particulate matter (soot) inhaled from household air pollution.
    3.8 million premature deaths annually from noncommunicable diseases including stroke, ischaemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer are attributed to exposure to household air pollution.
