‘Erroneous And Alarmist’: ABC Links Coronavirus To Climate Change
Sky News host Chris Kenny has criticized ABC presenter, Dr. Norman Swan (pictured), for linking the emergence of coronavirus to climate change.
On Friday, ABC Dr. Swan was asked “is the emergence of novel pathogens like the coronavirus more likely because of climate change?”
“The answer is yes,” Dr. Swan said.
Mr. Kenny said the public broadcaster prefers the “erroneous” and “alarmist claims” of Dr. Swan to expert advice.
“If the Spanish Flu was pre-climate change, and this is what you get with climate change, I’ll take global warming every day,” Mr. Kenny said.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Spanish Flu was estimated to have infected 500 million people and killed at least 50 million.
COVID-19 has so far infected more than 28 million people and caused more than 900,000 deaths.
