Because environmentalists would rather people suffer and die, rather than prosper and live.
Experts are now recommending that doctors reduce their use of certain kinds of anesthesia to combat the effects of climate change.
Dr. Mohamed Fayed, a senior anesthetist at Detroit’s Henry Ford Health, made the suggestion during the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ annual conference last Friday in Orlando, Florida.
“Global warming is affecting our daily life more and more, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions has become crucial,” he said.
“No matter how small each effect is, it will add up. As anesthesiologists, we can contribute significantly to this cause by making little changes in our daily practice — such as lowering the flow of anesthetic gas — without affecting patient care.”
Research notes that inhaled anesthesia accounts for up to 0.1 percent of the world’s carbon emissions, which are regarded as the primary driver of global climate change.

As the New York Post points out, the basis for this concept is a scientific manuscript that is 23 years old. No doubt there isn’t a hospital anywhere who would want to expose themselves to the huge liabilities involved in doing this. However, if climate alarmists or environmentalists are so sure about cutting anesthesia, then let them lead by example when they have surgery.
Comedian Jerry Lewis showed how stupid this idea is in a movie he made during the 1980’s.
