There are clearly many, many ways that very poor people die well before the life expectancy ages that we in the first world take for granted, and in today’s article referenced below we see chilling portrayals of the more gruesome examples of this.

While climate alarmists fret over any and all weather-related disasters and make unfounded and ridiculous claims of how they are now much worse than in the past due to climate change, even though such grandiose pronouncements are in no way evident across almost all disaster categories, and indeed have been decreasing in general thanks to our abilities to plan and adapt, accompanied by major rises in life expectancy, and, curiously, usage of fossil fuels.

But we digress.

The real point of this post is the absolute desperation and stark reality of life as a person in energy poverty.

Imagine having such poor access to energy that you took the risks detailed in the article below??

How such desperation and misery is barely ever mentioned in climate alarmist talking points, and almost never addressed in global climate discussions, is the true emergency of our time.

Solving energy poverty as quickly as possible using all means necessary should be our number one focus, and the repercussions of such an approach across all aspects of human life, including our treatment of the environment, would be revolutionary.


These deaths — all of them — are deaths of extreme energy poverty. While energy elites insist we need to drastically reduce our use of coal, oil and natural gas, hundreds of millions of people are living in grinding energy poverty and they will do whatever they have to do to get the energy they need. 

The disparities in global energy consumption are gobsmacking. Today, about 3.3 billion people are living in places where per-capita electricity use is less than what’s used by an average American kitchen refrigerator. All over the developing world, people die premature deaths due to indoor air pollution caused by the use of poor-quality cooking fuels.
