We’re All Living Longer, Despite What The Experts Say!
By Paul Homewood
If we were to believe the experts who warn us about all the things we are dying from, we would probably all be dead three times over!
Whether it’s air pollution, alcohol, obesity, diabetes, smoking, NHS funding, climate change, and goodness knows what else, the warnings are invariably dire.
The reality however is that death rates have been coming down for decades, and people are living longer than ever before:
Globally the picture is just the same:
There are almost endless reasons for all of this, but one thing is absolutely clear. Longer, healthier lives are the product of modern society.
And , as we know, we would not have the benefits of a modern, developed society without an abundant supply of fossil fuels.
The world is not a perfect place, never has been and never will be. But it is clearly moving in the right direction.
