Warning of More Pandemics to Come, Public Health Experts Urge Collective Examination of What it Means to Live in 'Harmony with Nature'

Science will surely bring us many life-saving drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics; however, there is no reason to think that these alone can overcome the threat of ever more frequent and deadly emergences of infectious diseases.

And this will be nothing short of music to Big Pharma’s ears.

Drugs–all of them–must be produced in a publicly owned manufacturing plant with no patents allowed.

Living in harmony with Mother Earth will preclude the continuation of capitalism.

Fauci knows. As long as there are BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs paid for with Billions of taxpayer dollars each year, there will be more sickness.

“It may seem strange to compare threats posed by human interactions with winged mammals that sleep upside down in caves to that of a terrorist group or a nuclear-armed nation. But scientific evidence—and our collective daily experience coping with Covid-19—tells us that pandemics may equal or surpass these dangers. It is time to significantly elevate our response to them so it is equal to the peril they present”

OK. Let’s start by aboloshing factory farming. (Including fish farming.)
These abomonations perpertrated on innocent, sentient beings tells us what kind of “animals” " we" really are.

Listening to the tapes and reviews of the tapes —

What we were told originally is true –

THAT THE VIRUS TRAVELS ON AIR – ON POLLUTED AIR PARTICLES –

In other words, citizens walking or sitting around anywhere outdoors – breathing the air
without a mask on – are exposing themselves to the virus.

When you’re in the car, it may be better to close the vents and A/C the air already in the
car without bringing “fresh” air into the car.

Same for opening windows at home –

We’ve had some days recently here where our temperatures have been lowered by …
air from Canada? Or by storms that have come through? Air seems fresher as temps cool.

We also have to think about the role that CARS play in polluting the air –

We need an industry to rise to re-engineer our cars to ELECTRIC – we need the government
to help with the costs, as well – and providing POSTS for electric cars.

And EVERYWHERE we need to deal with the insane question of WHY our electric lines are
still above ground. Grids are even worse – in Iowa with the storm there – the derecho knocked
down at least one GRID which screwed up a still active nuclear reactor there, shutting it down.

A derecho (/ dəˈreɪtʃoʊ /, from Spanish: derecho [deˈɾetʃo], “straight”) is a widespread , long-lived , straight-line wind storm that is associated with a fast-moving group of severe thunderstorms known as a mesoscale convective system . Derechos can cause hurricane-force winds, tornadoes, heavy rains, and flash floods.

*There are more than 100 nuclear reactors – about two in every state in US – which need to be shut
down as the effects of Global Warming are increasing every day. We are now feeling the effects of the harm done to Nature AFTER 1970’s so everything will be accelerating and compounding in ways that can’t be predicted. There are another 400 nuclear reactors internationally which should also be
shut down.

Late add on to my post above –

The PS on this is what Michael Moore points out in his new documentary –
"Planet of the Humans" – available to watch free on YouTube –
and just as importantly, the rebuttal to criticism …

That in the first week of the Virus ShutDown without cars traveling on our roadways it did
more for the planet/nature in cleaning the air we breathe than any of the fake “actions”
in the past 30-40 years to respond to Global Warming.

Conclusion being that all governments have done up til now is try to preserve our way
of life on this planet –

Spoke with my sister in California 4 days ago and she was relieved that she could
finally go outside; ash from fires had been in the air and coating the grass gray.
She wasn’t sure how many fires were still burning - or stopped. But she did report that
they were expecting temps of 111 degrees.

Today a new email from her – quote –
Am staying indoors as much as possible because our skies and air are so bad. Our skies are grey because of all the fires going on. We haven‘t been able to see clouds for the last 4 days. Fires are burning from Canada to San Diego they are reporting. Some of the worst fires ever! One of the hardest hit is Fresno, which is about 1 ½ hours away.

People camping for labor day were surrounded by fire and were so relieved when help came to airlift them out. It is so windy here in Atwater and all over which is spreading the fires even more. The news said California and some fire areas will begin to become ghost towns as people will not be able to insure these areas and people will get sick of evacuating or rebuilding several times a year!

Oct 28, 2019 · Recent research suggests that as the climate warms, Santa Ana winds may become less frequent. Coupled with precipitation changes, that could mean more intense fires later in the year .

Santa Ana winds -

The Santa Ana winds are strong, extremely dry downslope winds that originate inland and affect coastal Southern California and northern Baja California. They originate from coo , dry high-pressure air masses in the Great Basin. Santa Ana winds are known for the hot, dry weather that they bring in autumn, but they can also arise at other times of the year. They often bring the lowest relative humidities of the year to coastal Southern California. These low humidities, combined with the warm, comp

Outside air into the classroom, office, home, factory is a MUST. Outside transmission of SARS2 confirmed is 5 and 1345 from breathing / touching indoors.

Cooler air and some rain did not improve air quality for very long. Due to steel mills furnaces being restarted.

Nuclear is not the global warming causal. Cumulative auto exhaust is. And then we add 30 million more each year.

Oldie –

Don’t think pertains to classrooms – here on East Coast they’ve never
supplied air conditioning for classrooms in public schools, as yet …
amazing, but true.

STOP the pollution and you will stop much of the infection rate –

Global Warming will be the cause of nuclear reactor catastrophe –
notice that just one GRID down in Iowa due to storm shut down their nuclear reactor.
Every one of them needs to be shut down –
and it takes one solid year for each reactor to do that !!!

And then you are still left with the WASTE –

Look at Fukushima – all of our nuclear reactors are vulnerable to Global Warming.
That’s 500 internationally!!

Too much power has been transferred to the top –
Obviously, not every leader has been an FDR –

Thank you for the kind thoughts and concerns for us on the West Coast as these are so appreciated. Be safe on your coast as well, maybe we can make our way through this.
