Well, it is sort of logical but this is one for the law of unintended consequences. Ban smoking in pubs - muzhiks go outside for cigarette. Muzhiks get cold. Landlord installs patio heaters

"Ban smoking in pubs - muzhiks go outside for cigarette. Muzhiks get cold. Landlord installs patio heaters"

it's even worse: smoking ban decreases smoking - less people die - overpopulation (at least in the western world) directly increases global warming (more travelling, consumption, etc.)

FACT - genocides and large epidemics are good against global warming
or in other words
Save the planet, kill yourself

You're so inefficient. Save the planet, kill 10 others.

There is a great merit in getting the third world to smoke

But it takes too long.

We need to get all the religious people to commit suicide because they know they have an afterlife, so why no go there early and help things for the rest of us...

Exactly. You have to adjust for the beercoat effect.
