Red Republican states are hazardous death traps

Another statistic has been revealed in the battle of red states vs. blue states. A state by state analysis of natural disasters and resulting death rates show a clear correlation that red Republican states are the most dangerous states, particularly due to heat waves, storms, and tornadoes.

The map says it all, click on it for the full size. The heavily Republican strongholds in the Midwest, such as Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and the Dakotas, suffer from the most damage and fatalities. The next highest fatal region is the Republican stronghold, the South. This includes states such as Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and more.

The rural republican red states sure don't look affordable or attractive to live in and raise families as Sailer lied.

"Death map" shows heat a big hazard to Americans
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Heat is more likely to kill an American than an earthquake, and thunderstorms kill more than hurricanes do, according to a "death map" published on Tuesday.

Researchers who compiled the county-by-county look at what natural disasters kill Americans said they hope their study will help emergency preparedness officials plan better.

Heat and drought caused 19.6 percent of total deaths from natural hazards, with summer thunderstorms causing 18.8 percent and winter weather causing 18.1 percent, the team at the University of South Carolina found.

Earthquakes, wildfires and hurricanes combined were responsible for fewer than 5 percent of all hazard deaths.

Writing in BioMed Central's International Journal of Health Geographics, they said they hoped to dispel some myths about what the biggest threats to life and limb are.

"According to our results, the answer is heat," Susan Cutter and Kevin Borden of the University of South Carolina wrote in their report, which gathered data from 1970 to 2004.


  • That's an interesting article, but I really have to question the claims. The map would seem to indicate that tornadoes are the #1 cause of death in the South, but yet, in the Great Plains states, they dont even make the list. Likewise, heat/drought is a big problem in the upper Midwest, but doesnt make the list in the South?

    I know that natural disasters will be more likely to kill when they happen in places where they're rare, but I really am a bit suspicious. Moreover, the article claims that "Earthquakes, wildfires and hurricanes combined were responsible for fewer than 5 percent of all hazard deaths". Well, their study runs from 1970 to 2004, conveniently stopping just before Katrina hit and killed over 1000 people in Louisiana. If they had included just one more year in their study, their message would have been totally different.

    I don't really think there's any political motivation going on here; it's just not a very well-written study.

  • Steve this is the only way i can contact you since i saw a blog comment about amway and you said it was a scam and people just inccured losses. and your upline said it was easy to make 250,000. just because you had a bad experience in business does not make it a scam. since you got history in amway then answer this if you would. if you sell a product at retail do you make the difference? yep. hmm... so if you sell 50pv of products you would be eligible for a bonus check. so if you duplicated this and found 2 others who also sold 50pv of product and earned retail you would have a total of 150pv making you eligible for 3% of your bv. so far i have named 2 ways of income why are you saying there is losses here and there for 2-5 years and takes years to make it up. first in any business (brick and mortar) you would incur losses for the first 2 years but here in amway you buy products wholesale sell them retail and get bonus checks when others join your sales team to do the same thing it works you and your upline however did not. this is far better than a time clock going nowhere for 40 years just over broke job. blog me at

  • Most likely, the reason tornadoes are more deadly in the South is because they aren't as prepared for them as people in the Plains states. Let's face it: Typically, tornadoes don't hit the part of map that have the high tornado death toll. People who live in the Plains states know what to do when the tornado warnings come in. If you're Joe South who gets tornadoes about as often as Halley's Comet appearances, you don't remember, or simply don't know, what to do if a tornado has been spotted.

    Converseley, more people in the upper Midwest may not be as well-prepared for a prolonged heat wave as Southerners are. When I lived in South Dakota, neither our house nor our SUV had air conditioning. Some people in Texas don't have a/c, but the majority do. Without it, summer would be intolerable here.

    The point is that what is hot in some Midwestern states would be a nice day in Texas. Of course, 90 is a veritable cold snap in August!

    Oh--and the data about the earthquakes and wildfires is on a national level, hence why they account for only 5 percent of hazard deaths. Even if you throw in Katrina, it's not much in comparison to people who die from temp related conditions every year. Think of it this way: About 1000 people died from heat after powerful heat waves in Chicago (1995), Arizona (2005) and California (2006). Cold takes a lot of people, too. I'll have to find those numbers, but I do know the US death rate increases pretty dramatically in the winter.
