Doctors against jobs
Activist doctors desperately want to write “climate change”on people’s death certificates:
“Climate change is a killer, but we don’t acknowledge it on death certificates,” co-author Dr Arnagretta Hunter, from the ANU Medical School, said …
“If you have an asthma attack and die during heavy smoke exposure from bushfires, the death certificate should include that information.”
Very well. Put the cause down as “arson” or “excessive environmentalist regulations that forbid land clearing”.
“Climate change is the single greatest health threat that we face globally even after we recover from coronavirus,” Dr Hunter said.
“In Australia heat is the most dominant risk posed from climate change.”
I’m a long-time critic of the sort of Rule by Judges that comes with an aristocratic lawyerly caste interpreting a bill of rights.
But if you asked me for a second worst option, there is I think a strong case for saying it would be Rule by Doctors …
They’re almost as bad as journalists.
