Heartland adviser: Heat waves only kill people who were basically dead already

The Guardian's Suzanne Goldenberg is actually braving the Heartland Institute conference this week. And it's totally worth it, because she's coming out with quotes of horrifying callousness, like this one, from Heartland policy adviser John Dunn:

"Warm is good for people, and it's particularly good for people as they get older," said Dunn. "The people that warm spells kill are already moribund." He went on to say that only extreme cold caused extra deaths.

Let us translate: Hey, old people! Sorry about that heat wave that killed you. You were going to die anyway, so no sweat, OK?

The next speaker wanted to revive the use of DDT.

Actually, I imagine there would be a lot of sweat - that's why they call it "heat wave".

Once upon a time, I worked at a florist that had a business relationship with the town funeral home - every time a heat wave or cold snap was forecast, we'd buy extra "funeral" flowers [football mums, spider mums, glads] :innocent: .

Without fail, there would be a wave of funerals within 2 days of a severe weather change...

Awesome! That's capitalism at work for you. Can a government-run flower shop do that? I don't think so!
