How Long Before They Drag in Global Warming?

I was wondering how long it was going to take before the Coronavirus epidemic got linked to Global Warming and Brexit. Not very long at all. Today’s Observer editorial:

From the spread of zoonotic viruses to the growing threat of antibiotic resistance and the climate crisis, the most existential challenges we face are truly global. They make a mockery of outdated notions of national sovereignty; the idea that so long as we exert control within our tiny corner of the world, everything will be fine. Global challenges like these will test to destruction the ability of transnational institutions such as the WHO, the EU and the World Trade Organization to chivvy along global coordination. They serve as a grave warning to those who would bury their heads in isolationism.

Zoonotic means transferred from animals to humans. Not everybody believes that the Coronavirus outbreak started in a fish market.

Saying that ideas of one sort or other are “outdated” always strikes me as being empty of meaning, or equivalent to “unfashionable” or “old-fashioned”. I can’t for the life of me see that the notion of national sovereignty should become outdated. It’s been a constant throughout human history. What’s novel – and very scary – is the notion of a new, globalised world in which national sovereignty has vanished, and the peoples of the world are subjected to rules and regulations over which they have no control whatsoever. For aren’t the raft of smoking bans introduced all over the world in recent decades the result of the WHO “chivvying along global coordination” of the most divisive and socially destructive and draconian kind imaginable?

And is there a “climate crisis”? No, there manifestly is not. The world today is pretty much exactly the same as the world as it was 50 or 100 years ago. Of course there could be a climate crisis sometime in the not-too-distant future. But it hasn’t happened yet.

And I hope that the current Coronavirus epidemic will indeed “test to destruction transnational institutions such as the WHO, the EU and the World Trade Organization.” The World Health Organisation believes that there is a “tobacco epidemic“, and any organisation that believes such an absurdity is clearly in need of destruction. And it seems to unfortunately be the case that these supranational organisations regularly develop internal ideologies which are in conflict with the beliefs of ordinary people, probably because they usually develop in the absence of any mitigating common sense. So we have a “tobacco epidemic” and now a “climate crisis” that have been identified by self-styled “experts” of one sort or other. No doubt there will be more.

    For crissake, Frank. It’s an article in the Garbagian, that means the writer is full of it, as well as anyone who reads and believes it.

  2. Radical Rodent says:

    Aside from what could be defined as a “climate crisis”, one has to be aware that there have been warnings from many sources about the desire of the NWO to create and maintain fear and dismay (nuclear winter, “reds under the beds”, AIDS, swine flu, bird flu, ebola virus – which is still extant – and, of course, the much trumpeted upcoming “climate disaster”… the list could go on and on, all designed to imbue in us the desire for a One World Government) as well as to introduce a virus that will destroy most of the human population, so that they may reduce the population to 500 million, over whom – of course – they will have total control.

      The goals of the 2030 Agenda (formerly Agenda 21) currently seem like a Progressive pipe dream. However, a significant reduction in global population would be just the ticket to make it feasible.

        There’s a conflict here. Tobacco control want us to live happily ever after through a lengthy old age. And their actions have resulted in the closure of so many places where people can meet and spend long periods of time (so making it more difficult to spread the virus rapidly).

        And as smokers and social club and pub and so on users are supposed to be not nice people, surely we’d fit their profile for the undesirables to be exterminated?

        Seems to me the advocates of 2030 Agenda may want to do something about this, unless they know that smokers are less likely to be susceptible to any virus.

        So if they don’t do a 180 on tobacco control, then I’d suggest we keep on puffing away!

    Is that why the WHO is still dragging it’s feet to declare the, in the meantime also in the incubation stage infectious, corona virus a global epidemic? After all, there is no vaccine and no ant-viral drug to fight this epidemic.

    As today progressed less information was made available to the global public, too. No information about any increase in new confirmed cases/deaths. All cases outside China were people travelling long distance in airplanes, so there are a lot of people/?pets to test for the virus.

    I have to burst the journalist’s bubble; Brexit will not prevent people from travelling, so no-one assumes that Brexit will protect us from the corona virus. And the global nations as well as organisations, such as the WHO, are not rushing to help the, at this point in time at breaking point, chinese medics in overcrowded clinics, are they? The least they could do is to send medical supplies!!

    The international Climate Change Advocates aren’t doing anything to offer aid to the Chinese, either, are they?

    The year of the metal rat has begun with a plague that might enable us to get rid of a lot of our money draining plagues.

      I’m satisfied this video is authentic, shows the conditions doctors, caregivers and patients have to endure – and that was posted a couple of days back.

      https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=kpIko_1579872346

      And this poster has a large number of videos showing some of what’s going on.

      https://www.liveleak.com/c/MilitaryVideos

      Do look at the one about the doctor who worked several days straight, then fell asleep on his feet, knocked out his front teeth, then after a couple of hours kip went straight back to work.

      It’s a war zone there and yes they need as much help as they can get, though I have to be honest and say I wouldn’t volunteer.

    It is getting increasingly difficult to obtain REAL figures with respect to confirmed cases and number of deaths of this corona virus.

    Someone working for the WHO had to cut his/her weekend short/take 5 minutes off the fight against the tobacco “epidemic” ongoing since >75 years to update briefly the WHO web site.
    https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200126-sitrep-6-2019–ncov.pdf
    Unfortunately it is useless information; the death toll (27.01.2020, 06:45 hours GMT) stands at 80+
    (no reliable information found for confirmed number of cases).

    The BBC does it’s best to confirm that it is a useless source of information as it gives this ongoing epidemic little coverage. It concentrates on the untimely death of Kobe Bryant and the 75th anniversary of the Russian Red Army liberating Auschwitz.

    I guess now we will rely on first hand accounts on the internet to get at least some idea of where we all stand and that those with pre-existing medical conditions can take measures, such as avoiding crowded places as 2000 people flew in from China recently and most of them (+ the people they encountered at the airport(s) in confined spaces) have not been located so far and how many animals (mostly beloved pets) they have been in contact with.

    May I suggest that the various branches of our life-style police donates their funding to containing/development of multi-antiviral drugs to this (as well as other!) virus(es)? After all, these little things are in the habit to adapt very quickly to our attempts to eradicate them and therefore the likelihood of encountering new ones/more viscous old ones is very high.

    Economically speaking, the ongoing Corona Virus Epidemic is a disaster, so perhaps Greta, the public face of Climate Change Alarmists and her entourage can be sent back home (?by a hired air-plane) to attend school.

    Nevertheless, lets not panic, nor forget that the mortality rate is currently “only” around 3%, so chances of recovery are pretty high. As a smoker I have developed a degree of immunity to fear and a healthy dislike of false information/lies by omission.
