WND discusses with Chris Horner's how the climate deal, which causes energy prices to rise, will mean many will die from the cold this winter.
Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Christopher C. Horner has tangled frequently with the Obama administration over his efforts to track down energy and environmental policy documents through Freedom of Information Act requests. Horner is also author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming” and “Power Grab: How Obama’s Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America.”
Horner said the death toll caused by skyrocketing energy prices is alarming.
"Now they expect 40,000 excess winter deaths just in England and Wales, excess. And they had expected maybe 2,000 before these policies came into effect. Then it spiked, and they say half of these are people dying of hypothermia in their apartments. You're killing people for no impact on climate," Horner said.
He said people dying in heat waves get a lot more attention than those dying in winter because the summertime deaths fit the political narrative. But he said they're dying for the same reasons.
Horner said the only hope for blocking this deal from impacting American consumers is for the U.S. Senate to declare it a treaty and vote on it accordingly. Obama has said it's not a treaty and has no plans to submit it for Senate ratification.
