Data contradicts climate-alarmist reporting

2021-09-13

A new survey shows that many young people are terrified of climate change. Echoing what they have heard from alarmed campaigners, journalists and politicians, they are urging drastic policies based on the claim that the "climate apocalypse" is becoming more and more deadly.

A closer look at the data, however, does not support this narrative at all. Over the past century, climate-related deaths have dropped an astounding 96%. And despite the sensationalist reporting about fires, heat and floods, 2021 is on track to achieve a century-long climate-related death risk decline of 99.7%.
