Dedicated to the balanced discussion of global warming
Herald Sun – February 22, 2007
I have a problem with this one. This article claims that global warming causes fevers in children! While I am sure that when it is warmer outside, children are more likely to overheat but remember that most experts say that the earth has only increased 0.6 deg C in the last century. It varies more than that during the course of an hour in the US midwest where I live! I really try to have an open mind on global warming because the science is really not well researched yet BUT GIVE ME A BREAK!
I find this to be a perfect case of 2 unrelated findings being related together because it makes good press or someone has a hidden agenda.
EPA, fever, illness, science, temperature
The two-year study at a major children’s hospital showed that for every five-degree rise in temperature two more children under six years old were admitted with fever to that hospital.
The University of Sydney research is the first to make a solid link between climate changes and childhood illness.
And now global warming is becoming more apparent, it is highly likely an increasing number of young children will be turning up at hospital departments with these kinds of common illnesses
