Beating the climate drum again. The peddlers of the climate change ruse are getting desperate. Lamestream is now pushing low IQs onto climate. No mention of fluoride’s part in lowering IQ. No mention either of weather manipulation aka geoengineering. If you’re taken in by the propaganda you need to listen to the Australian Senator’s recent revelations. And check out the weather spin from NZ’s own Ministers for the environment. EWR
Children who experience extreme weather events before they’re born have lower IQs than those that don’t, a new report suggests.
The report from Global Health Alliance Australia laid bare the impacts climate change is having on health, AAP reports.
It looked at more than 100 pieces of research and policy analysis to work out how environmental conditions are affecting people’s health.
Global Health Alliance Australia executive director Misha Coleman was shocked by fact the research suggested an effect on children’s IQ.
Studies on the subject found evidence the change is due to stress hormones from the mother crossing into the placenta.
One study found specific effects in children that went through the 2011 Brisbane floods, which was part of a cluster of floods in Queensland from 2010 to 2011.
“It’s been estimated that those kids lost about 14 IQ points because of the stress their mothers went through,” Coleman told AAP.
The study also revealed higher temperatures and greenhouse gasses are leading to increased asthma attacks and allergies.
Coleman said sometimes it could be hard for people to understand the broader implications of climate change on health.
“During the Black Saturday fires for example, people know about how many people died in the fires,” she told AAP.
