Dr. Indur Goklany, who was a member of the delegation that set up the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)…

The WHO’s released in the run up to the UN Summit on climate change in September claims that 95,000 more people would die each year from malnutrition, 60,000 from malaria, 48,000 from diarrhea and 38,000 elderly who would die from heat exposure, all because of the global warming hypothesis.

In other words, like most progressive predictions it assumes that mankind is too stupid to adapt.
The briefing sheet put out with the study does not explain the assumptions made when creating the predictions. Rather, that info is buried in a summary table in the full report.
