This sounds like a great idea….for doctors to lose paying customers

Doctor groups take up global warming advocacy

Patients should be prepared for future meetings with their doctors to include discussions of global warming.

Under a political advocacy campaign launched Wednesday, a coalition of physician groups will tell the public that their health is threatened by catastrophic man-made global warming, also called climate change.

Participating doctors will also urge government action to reduce the damage believed to be caused by human emissions of greenhouse gases.

The Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health is led by Dr. Mona Sarfaty, Director of the Program on Climate and Health in the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University.

The consortium said in a press release that it represents more than half of American physicians. Its members include the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, Immunology; American Academy of Family Physicians); American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP); American College of Physicians (ACP); ecoAmerica, and Physicians for Social Responsibility.

On Wednesday, the consortium issued a report titled, “Medical Alert! Climate Change Is Harming Our Health.”

Nothing like a fancy pants physician driving a fancy pants gas guzzling vehicle to and from their big carbon footprint house telling you to cut back on your carbon footprint to ruin your day. Gaia help any doctor that asks me questions or lectures me, because they will be getting an earful asking them what they’ve done in their own lives, what they drive, what kind of house they have where they go on vacation, if they have a second vacation home, if they use air conditioning, what temp they keep it at, if they have an ice maker, if he/she plays golf, and so forth. Right before walking out and telling him/her to stick their bill in their you know where.

    I have no doubt that global warming is true. I remember a time when a man could be outside working and leave a hammer lay in the sun and it wouldn’t burn his hand when he picked it up.

    But it doesn’t concern me, What DOES concern me is the danger from having millions of criminals in this country who are carrying around God only knows what kinds of third world country diseases or parasites that could directly damage my health.
    Global warming is a long term threat, but the threat of having borders open to all kinds of diseases that I have not been exposed to my entire life and have not built immunity to is a VERY real and immediate threat to my well being.

    If doctors want to push an agenda, that is the one they should push.
