    “Climate has a profound impact on the lives, and survival, of people.”

    “Communication” and the world wide use of the “English” language has become the key or the tools that has made this advancement possible, still up to date we see many problems happening around the world simply because as people we don't underestand each other or we don't underestand each others cultures, the use of internet and the English language can help us to overcome this.

    “Shifting to clean household energy sources would both reduce climate change, and save the lives of approximately 680 000 children a year from reduced air pollution.”

    But the cost to shift to such a clean household energy source would cost the lives of how many children? You see, the best thing you can do for the extreme poor is clean water and food. Cooking with cheap electricity is probably one of the easiest ways to save lives because the indoor pollution created by using wood burning stoves is said to be very cancerous. But these people want the poor to use expensive clean energy like wind and solar.

    Like I have said before, environmentalists end up killing more people than they save.
