Letter | Bundle up
Looks like it’s time to bundle up because Old Mother Nature is at it again. She has been here forever, much longer than us humans, and is used to having her way.
For some years now newspapers, politicians, teachers, etc., etc., have been warning us about the perils of what they called man-made global warming (now changed to climate change.) Some even predict that unless global warming/climate change is curbed we, as humans, may not last much longer.
But wait! It’s not heat that causes the most temperature -related deaths. It’s cold!
And besides that, it is moderate heat and moderate cold that is responsible for more deaths than extreme heat or extreme cold.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and THE LANCET, a science journal, cold weather kills 20 times more people than heat-related deaths.
So bundle up and be ready. Old Mother Nature is on the way.
