A new report by the Organization DARA says 100 Million deaths could be caused by Global Warming by 2030.

Hmmm. A majority of the deaths claimed by DARA are from indoor cooking on fires fuelled with cow dung and the like, some 3.1 million per year.

This is a problem, as has been discussed on this board a number of times. However, it is a bit of a stretch to say they are 'caused' by Global Warming. Dung is actually a renewable fuel.

The death figure is not projected to fall at all in the coming two decades (which itself seems a bit improbable). An obvious priority should be to make available more efficient stoves and increased electrification and natural gas distribution.
