The blessings of climate change

POINT HOPE, ALASKA, is tiny and ill-provisioned, an Arctic backwater so
inaccessible that basic groceries have to be flown in and gasoline can only
be brought in by barge during the summer. The town is remote not only
geographically, but also digitally: Its internet connection is so slow that
teachers must spend hours downloading course material that most of us could
pull off the internet in minutes.
Because of climate change, the once-forbidding sea route through the Arctic
Circle has been opening up sooner and for a longer period each summer.
But Point Hope's luck is changing. High-speed internet is coming, and with
it the benefits of ties to the world: Improved education and health care,
more options for consumers, new customers for local artists, and a chance to
All thanks to global warming.
The New York Times reported Sunday that Quintillion, a global communications
company, is taking advantage of melting sea ice to build a faster digital
link between Europe and Asia by positioning high-speed internet cables
beneath the Arctic Ocean. Until recently, cable-laying ships couldn't get
too far north, but climate change has meant less ice north of the Bering
Strait. Consequently, Point Hope is now a stop on Quintillion's shipping
route, and the company is supplying the town with broadband service. That
means a better life for residents of one of the nation's most isolated
In the church of climate alarmism, there may be no heresy more dangerous
than the idea that the world will benefit from warming. Zealous preachers
seek to scare their flock with forecasts of catastrophe, horror, and threats
to civilization. Anyone who demurs is denounced as an apostate: an
But the truth — the inconvenient truth, to coin a phrase — is that while
climate change brings negatives, it brings positives too. Polar melting may
cause dislocation for those who live in low-lying coastal areas, but it will
also lead to safe commercial shipping in formerly inhospitable northern
seas, and to economic opportunity for high-latitude residents in places like
Shifts in climate are like shifts in the economy: They invariably spell good
news for some and bad news for others. Falling interest rates are a blessing
to homebuyers but a curse to savers; a strong dollar helps consumers buying
imports but hinders exporters selling abroad. In the same way, changes in
climate generate winners and losers. Some of global warming's effects will
be disagreeable; others will be very welcome.
Worldwide, cold kills 20 times as many people as heat, so a warming planet
will save lives. A plethora of data confirms the greater deadliness of cold
weather, even in countries with very different climate patterns. One study
of mortality rates, for example, found that deaths from cold outnumbered
those from heat by a ratio of 33-to-2 in Australia, and 61-to-3 in Britain.
Of 2,000 weather-related deaths in America tallied by the Centers for
Disease Control, 63 percent were caused by excessive cold vs. 31 percent
caused by excessive heat.
A warming planet will also be a greener planet. Is a greener planet. Rising
levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have already led to "persistent
and widespread increase" in leaf cover — i.e., greening — across as much as
half of the world's vegetated regions, according to a study published in
Nature last year.
Over the past 35 years, there has been an increase in world greenery equal
in area to twice the continental United States. Some of Africa's most
inhospitable deserts have begun to bloom again.
Alarmists mindlessly condemn atmospheric CO2 as "carbon pollution," but
carbon dioxide is essential to the health and grown of plant life.
NASA satellites show that over the past 35 years, there has been an increase
in world greenery equal in area to twice the continental United States.
Climate change has been a particular blessing in Africa, where the "Sahel
greening" has significantly reduced famine.
The effects of climate change range from the obvious (lower heating bills)
to the subtle (more habitat for moose and endangered sharks). Territory
formerly deemed too forbiddingly cold will grow more temperate — and
valuable. Delicacies from lobster to blueberries may become more plentiful.
Bottom line? Global warming will bring gains as well as losses, upsides no
less than downsides. Climate science isn't a black-and-white morality tale.
Our climate discourse shouldn't be either.
