And deaths are awful no matter how and where...
But I wonder how many people in CO, DC, VA, MD etc. don't believe in climate change.
How many are driving SUVs.
How many have fought wind turbines?
I will be more sympathetic when the death toll reaches 30,000 as it did in the European heat wave in 2003.
Okay, maybe I'm mean spirited, but sooner or later as a species we need to do something or as a species we will have self destructed, but maybe since we are such poor caretakers of the earth, we don't deserve the planet.
