Red Cross Decides Climate Change Trumps Pandemic


More than 200,000 people have died because of the pandemic. It’s clear to say that many cities need the help of the Red Cross. However, they’ve decided to jump the political fence and focus on the most liberal issue possible: climate change.

Wait, there are people dying! The Red Cross needs to be in place to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. It’s clearly not going anywhere anytime soon, no matter what restrictions are placed by state and national governments.

Oh, but the Red Cross has decided since there is no vaccine against climate change, they need to refocus their attention.

This just puts a cherry on top of all of the things that are messed up with 2020.

Jagan Chapagain, the Secretary-General for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has insisted that climate change is a bigger issue for humanity than COVID-19 poses.

Currently, virtually everyone has been affected by COVID-19 in one way or another. They’ve either tested positive, known someone who has tested positive, or even lost a loved one to the virus.

It’s hard to say the same thing about climate change…has anyone lost a loved one to climate change? Probably not.

However, in a report that has been issued, Chapagain is insistent that climate change has a “greater medium- and long-term impact on human life and the Earth.”

The coronavirus isn’t just an issue in the United States. Globally, 1.32 million people have died due to the virus or complications created by it.

Now, we can prepare for one of the stupidest comments ever to be made from a liberal…there’s no vaccine against climate change. Well, duh. Chapagain feels that this means that there needs to be more emphasis placed on it than on COVID-19 since there will be a vaccine next year and that “hopefully” it will be possible to manage the impact of the virus over the next few years.

How is it that climate change is killing people? Paris Match has published that extreme weather and natural disasters have killed an average of 41,000 people a year for the past decade.

Well, in the past two weeks, there were probably 50,000 deaths from the coronavirus, based on data from the World Health Organization (WHO).

It seems as though the Red Cross has their priorities a bit skewed.

Natural disasters have been happening around the world since the world first came into existence. There’s nothing that can be done to stop them because it’s part of evolution. The volcano of Mount Vesuvius erupted, killing 2,000 Pompeiians and close to 16,000 people total in the surrounding areas. This happened in 79 AD.

People die. They’ve died from natural disasters before and they’ll die from natural disasters for years to come.

It’s not always fair, but it’s the natural disasters that are the cause of death – not climate change.

There’s no way to change the climate because it’s out of our control. Can we reduce smog and fossil fuels? Sure. Can we use more renewable energy? Absolutely. Can we stop hurricanes from killing people or volcanoes from erupting? Absolutely not.

However, the Red Cross seems to think that it’s best to focus on something that they can’t actually improve. They’ll pull support from where it’s needed the most. They’ll waste countless dollars on a cause that will go nowhere. But, at least they will be able to say they tried.

The Australian National University has argued that climate change be listed as a cause of death. So, for those who died during Vesuvius, was it climate change that killed them or a freak accident involving a natural disaster?

As Red Cross decides to shift their attention away from the thousands who are dying daily around the globe, they’ll likely be responsible for more deaths than they’ll be willing to accept blame for. Great move, Red Cross. We had thought better of you.
